Superman is faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive, but is he fast and furious enough to win big at the box office? Not necessarily, judging by the poor returns on "Superman Returns."
It's not surprising, then, that director Zack Snyder isn't counting his kryptonians before they fly. The "Man of Steel" filmmaker was recently asked by E! Online if he was already looking ahead towards the DC Entertainment movie's inevitable sequel. But according to Snyder, he's not looking towards any potential follow-ups just yet.
"We like to take it one step at a time and not curse anything," said the director. "It's that kind of thing so we'll see what happens."
For now, lips are tightly sealed even on the first "Man of Steel" movie. Snyder admitted that "it's super hard to keep it a secret," even while it's "awesome" seeing Henry Cavill don the suit. That's a sentiment shared by Cavill's co-stars Michael Shannon and Amy Adams, based on what they previously told MTV News.
"I always felt like I was in a scene with Superman," Shannon told MTV recently. "I never looked at him and thought that's just somebody trying to be Superman — he felt like the real deal."
"You feel like you're in scenes with Superman," Adams agreed. "He is completely invested and yoked and he just really took the role very seriously and yeah, he's fantastic, he's just so yum. He's the nicest guy — aside from the face."
"Man of Steel" flies on June 14, 2013.
