Man Of Steel Star Promises Edgy Superman, Just Like Dark Knight

Though Man of Steel is more than a year away and we have many other superhero projects to keep us occupied until then, it’s hard not to be interested in what form Zack Snyder’s Superman project will take. It’s clear that it’s going to deviate in tone from the Christopher Reeve films we all know and love, but it turns out that Snyder is going to be taking Superman down a darker path.

ClevverTV got a chance to catch up with Dylan Sprayberry, the actor who plays young Clark Kent in “Man of Steel.” Turns out that Snyder compared his vision of the movie to “The Dark Knight,” Warner Bros’s other successful DC comic book property, during their early conversations.

“When Zack [Snyder] and I were talking about it the first time, he was saying how Superman, they want to give it a more edgy feel like ‘The Dark Knight’ but also make it more realistic and emotional so it’s not just the all-american superhero that saves everyone,” Sprayberry said. “He has dilemmas and love and struggles throughout the whole movie, especially when he’s a kid.”

Sprayberry just wrapped filming on “Man of Steel,” and said it was hard to get a grasp of how large the project was while he was on set.

“I didn’t even really notice how big it was until I finished shooting. It was so overwhelming that it was crazy, I was like ‘I can’t believe I just did all that,'” he said. “In the moment, I was really focused on the work and the acting.”

“Man of Steel” stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe and Laurence Fishburne. It’s due in theaters on June 14, 2013.
