[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2432:]] With less than six months until the new Superman movie is released, Christopher Nolan has been fielding a plethora of questions regarding the Man of Steel and what's to come.

The latest has Nolan commenting on director Zack Snyder as well as the character of Superman in general.

Nolan, producer on Man of Steel, tells THR that he is amazed by what Snyder is doing with Superman, and Nolan also says he wouldn't know how to be able to do it.

Zack was the perfect man to take this on. He is unbelievably skilled at creating a coherent, cohesive world -- whether it’s a very stylized world, like 300, or something that’s more challenging, more varied, like he did with Watchmen.

In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far more difficult than creating the world of the Dark Knight. He has a lot of finishing to do on the movie -- it has a very long post production schedule because, unlike Batman, Superman flies.

I actually feel guilty talking about it because I’m sitting here having nothing to do to it. I try to be as supportive as I can, and I’m just amazed by what he is doing. It’s not something I would know how to do.

The last statement from Nolan is particularly interesting in that it's not something he would know how to do, perhaps giving us his reason why he bowed out of doing the upcoming Justice League movie.

Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy was a more realistic take on the super hero genre, which the Man of Steel and the Justice League movie obviously couldn't be.

Man of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Michael Shannon as Zod, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Kevin Coster as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy, Harry Lennix as General SwanwickAntje Traue as Faora and Aylet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van,.
