Superman (2012): Zack Snyder Shoots Down CGI for the Man of Steel


picI'll tell you what - the more and more I hear from Zack Snyder, the more and more I like the guy and think the new Superman movie is going to be all kinds of awesome.

In previous interiews, Snyder stated that he is taking Superman in a different direction and that Supes, "should kick-ass."

In this short clip with IGN, the director shot down any notion of CGI for the Man of Steel.

Actually, the look on Snyder's face (right) tells it all when asked about a "CG peformance caption" version of Superman.

Snyder is also asked about the lawsuit that sees the original Superman creators suing for the rights. He responds that none of the story is influenced with any of that and won't be an issue.

Snyder continues on, stating they are trying to approach this Superman as if the previous never happened - but states they still respect them etc.

Zack - tell us how you really feel -- you thought they were crap, didn't ya!

Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch hits theaters March 25th, 2011. Head on over here to view a large gallery of eye-popping pics and trailers.
