Director Zach Snyder has talked about what his approach was to the upcoming reboot film Man of Steel.
“When they try to dress him up… put him in jeans and a t-shirt or a leather jacket with an S on it, I go, ‘What? Guys, it’s okay. It’s Superman. He’s the king daddy. You should all be bowing down to him.’ He’s a really cool mythological contradiction… he’s incredibly familiar Americana and alien, exotic, bizarroland, but beautifully woven together…All of us, in a weird way, are that same kind of contradiction– no one’s that simple.”
Criticisms are ocassionally levelled at the character whether he’s too bland, too conventionally “good”, etc.
“I feel like my movies have always been very subversive. Even when people haven’t perceived how subversive they really are. For me, what’s subversive about Superman is that it’s not subversive.”
While the underwear scene of Alice Eve’s Carol Marcus has caused quite a controversy in Star Trek Into Darkness, co-writer Damon Lindelof has responded through his Twitter page about it.
“I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress.”
“We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies. Do not want to make light of something that some construe as mysogenistic. “
“What I’m saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future.”
“Also, I need to learn how to spell ‘misogynistic’.”
