Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, Man of Steel, is still more than a year away from hitting theaters, but that hasn't stopped fans from wondering how it will turn out, given his spotty history with 300, Watchmen and Sucker Punch.
According to Dylan Sprayberry, who landed the coveted role of young Clark Kent, the tone of the reboot is going to take after Christopher Nolan's Batman.
"When Zack 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."
Fans of the late-CW series Smallville can attest to the angst and hardships young Clark went through. While Sprayberry's role in the film is just a small chunk of a movie which stars Henry Cavill as Superman, what do you think of Snyder taking after Nolan's darker, edgier approach?
Man of Steel arrives in theaters June 14, 2013.
