Weta Digital’s Joe Letteri has spoken to Bleeding Cool about director Zack Snyder’s take on Man of Steel.
While he couldn’t give too many specifics, he told the site that “overall it’s the story that’s most exciting”.
“It’s a nice re-envisioning of the story of Superman leaving his homeworld and coming to this new one,” Letteri said.
“If you look at what Zack [Snyder] has done you’ll see that they’ve abandoned a lot of the pretense that was in the comics and asked ‘Can we still make this work?’.
“They’re sticking to realism as much as possible. Fantastic elements are still there but a lot of it that been trimmed back to make it feel as though this actually happened.”
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, and hits cinema screens on June 14.
