It's — a bat?!

Director Zack Snyder has been saying all along that his version of Superman will be a bit different than the previous Donner movies, and that it will be a bit more kick ass.

We recently learned that Dylan Sprayberry will be playing a young Clark Kent in the Man of Steel movie, and Sprayberry tells ClevverTV about a conversation he had with Snyder.

"When Zack [Snyder] and I were talking about it the first time, he was saying how Superman, they want to give it a more edgy feel like The Dark Knight but also make it more realistic and emotional so it’s not just the all-american superhero that saves everyone. He has dilemmas and love and struggles throughout the whole movie, especially when he’s a kid."


Sprayberry, who is also appearing on a new episode of Glee tonight, also spoke on his super experience filming the new movie.

"It was really great. I didn’t even really notice how big it was until I finished shooting. It was so overwhelming that it was crazy, I was like, 'I can’t believe I just did all that.' In the moment, I was really focused on the work and the acting."
