'Man of Steel' not necessarily dark, says David S Goyer

By
Man of Steel has been written as if Superman existed "in the real world", David S Goyer has said.

The writer, who collaborated with Christopher Nolan on his Batman trilogy, discussed their "naturalistic" approach to comic book adaptations at the Rome Fiction Fest, reports Badtaste.it (via ComingSoon.net).

"We always had a naturalistic approach, we want our stories to be rooted in reality, like they could happen in the same world we live in," he said at a panel for his Da Vinci's Demons show.

"It's not that easy with Superman, and actually this doesn't necessarily mean we will make a dark movie. But working on this reboot we are thinking about what would happen if a story like this one actually happened. How would people react to this? What impact would the presence of Superman have in the real world?

"What I really like to do is writing 'genre' stories without a cartoonish element. I did the same with Da Vinci's Demons, and I'll do the same with Man of Steel."


The forthcoming film has been expected to take a serious and gritty tone similar to that of Nolan's Batman films. Nolan is producing the Warner Bros movie with Zack Snyder in the director's chair.

Da Vinci's Demons is a historical fantasy series that focuses on the young life of the legendary artist and inventor. It will air in the UK on FX in 2013.

The Henry Cavill and Amy Adams-starring Man of Steel will debut on June 14, 2013.
