Zack Snyder offers plot details on SupermanZack Snyder is currently making the European press rounds in support of his latest directorial effort Legend of The Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, and he let slip some small but important details in regards to his next project, the highly touted Superman. While very little is known about this DC Comics reboot, it has been said that the character of Superman will be updated with a story that fits our current cultural atmosphere.

About what he is planning to do with this iconic superhero, possibly the most famous superhero in the world, Zack Snyder said this to Filmsactu (as translated by Bleeding Cool):

"As I have already explained, the film will focus on the early days of Superman, so there will be no links with the other films. This is not a remake then. Similarly, although I still cannot talk about the script, I can assure you that this new Superman will not be based on any comic book in particular."

While Zack Snyder did mention that this new Superman reboot wouldn't be tied to the Richard Donner/Bryan Singer movies, he didn't rule out a connection to the CW's Smallville, which is ending its ten season run next spring.

The fan out cry for Tom Welling and Erica Durance to continue on in the roles of Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane is deafening. There is no indication that Zack Snyder is interested in either actor at this point, or that he would even consider turning Superman into a big screen version of Smallville. But he hasn't stated anything contrary to that fact, either.

Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013.
