Henry Cavill is the lead in Man of Steel, revered filmmaker Christopher Nolan is its producer, and David S. Goyer is the screenwriter. Although each element serve an integral piece to the film’s puzzle, the person who puts everything together is director Zack Snyder.
Although he’s shot such graphic novel based epics as 300 and Watchmen (along with his passion project Sucker Punch), Mr. Snyder journeys into near hallowed territory by taking on one of comic book’s most beloved heroes.
To date, the film has made a total of $400 million at the box office, with $116 million of that figure collected domestically. It’s a total score for Snyder and his fellow crew members (as well as Warner Bros.). During the press conference for Man of Steel, Mr. Snyder laid out his personal vision for the film.

Helen Mirren (The Queen) returns to Red 2 as Victoria, an assassin who is tasked with killing her close friend and colleague (Bruce Willis) during the beginning of the story.
Mirren was more than happy to return to the Red universe to mix it up once again co-stars Willis, Mary Louise Parker, and John Malkovich.
“People really enjoyed the first one,” says Mirren. “I’m thrilled we were able to do a second one. And it’s lovely to reprise a character as well. The character takes on a different kind of life when you come back to it. It’s like when I did Prime Suspect and I kept coming back to Jane Tennison. Somehow the characters become a part of your personal life. I feel that about Victoria. She’s just a great, funny, surprising sort of character to see on screen that actually one hasn’t seen before on the screen. It’s actually a bit of a miracle when you can do something that hasn’t been seen before.”
