Christopher Nolan Didn't Have Much To Do With Superman: Man of Steel (2013)

1786 I think we have heard murmurings of this before, but from the below quote from Empire Magazine it sounds as if Christopher Nolan really didn't have all that much to do with the new Superman movie, the Man of Steel.

Christopher Nolan, the director on The Dark Knight Rises, is listed as a producer on Zack Snyder's Man of Steel.

The original Man of Steel script was from David Goyer, with the story from Goyer and Nolan as well; however, when Snyder came on board he had the script re-written by Kurt Johnstad — Snyder's 300 co-writer.

Could be Snyder wanted to put his own touches on the Man of Steel, or could be he felt Goyer's script was just bad.

While we may never know the exact details, Nolan tells Empire (via CBM) that the Man of Steel is all Zack Snyder.

"It's Zack's movie so it'd be a bit rude of me to turn up and say I've got a few ideas now," laughs the director when talk turned to his involvement with Man of Steel. "My big point of responsibility was helping shepard David's script. When I'm finished with this I'll be there for whatever Zack wants from me, but it's very much his movie."

And it's really no surprise that Nolan didn't have too much influence as The Dark Knight Rises shot at the same time as the Man of Steel.

Stay tuned to Cosmic Book News as more on the Man Of Steel develops.

Man Of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder starring, Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod, and Russel Crowe as Jor-El.
