Zack Snyder has been helping to whip up some more excitement for Man Of Steel , confirming that the new trailer will preview before The Hobbit , and talking a little about what we can expect from his star-studded cast.
“I can’t wait for The Hobbit ,” says Snyder, “so it will be fun to see our crazy Man O f Steel trailer and then enjoy The Hobbit because that’s going to be great. It just feels like a fun Christmas thing to do, drag the whole family out for that action.”
When asked about Shannon’s performance as Zod, Snyder took the opportunity to praise the seriousness with which his cast approached their roles.
“I was just incredibly fortunate to play with those guys who really were giving all they had to bring a level of commitment to the scenes they have together so that audiences will get an opportunity to really have their heroes taken seriously.
“I don’t mean that from a depressing kind of way but, ‘This is important and fun and needs to be given the respect that it deserves’. from that perspective it was so exciting to watch them drink the Kool-Aid of that concept and go all the way.”
Man Of Steel opens in the UK on 14 June 2013.
