You can't tell a story about an alien and not go to another planet, can you? Actually, you can, however, it isn't something that 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder want's to disregard from his upcoming film -- something we assumed when we first heard he had cast both of Superman's parents, Russell Crow as Jor-El and actress Ayelet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van. The question remains, however, just how much of the film will be spent on another planet?
In a recent interview with the LA Times, actor Michael Shannon ('Boardwalk Empire') recently discussed his role in the upcoming 'Man of Steel' film, talking everything from the scale and size of the film's production to his role as the evil General Zod. His response may have given away more than what he may have bargained for, indicating that the film might involve a lot of time spent on another planet -- maybe Krypton?== TEASER ==
When asked about what it's like for Shannon to work on the movie set he explained that while he initially believed that much of the film would be acting on a green screen; many of the sets are actually being built instead.
It’s unlike anything I’ve ever done. It’s massive sets. It’s literally another world. It’s the first time I’ve acted on another planet. As much green screen as there is and I’m sure will be, they’re actually building a lot of the sets as well. I had thought it was just going to be green screens everywhere and we would just be pretending everything. There’s quite a bit of detail they’re building and putting into it. It’s very helpful. The less green screen, the better — I don’t think you’d be able to find an actor on Earth who wouldn’t have that sentiment.
Now why would director Zack Snyder want to spend his time and resources on building a set much of the set will be worked into the film, right? If there's one thing director Zack Snyder is good at it's envisioning vast worlds, so it should be interesting to see his interpretation of what planet Krypton looks like in the 'Man of Steel.' What do you think of the idea that a portion of the movie will be set on another planet? How much of the film do you think should be on earth? Are you looking forward to the 'Man of Steel'?
