Christopher Nolan: “Superman” Harder to Pull Off than “Batman”

The Dark Knight

“Sending Superman aloft again is a tougher task than resurrecting Batman, contends Christopher Nolan, who is producing Warner Bros.’ ‘Man of Steel’.”[THR]

He may have gone down in Cinematic History as the man who created the greatest superhero trilogy of all-time, but director Christopher Nolan insists that there’s no way he could have done the same thing with Superman. He may be producing Man of Steel which is slated for release next summer, but he is thankful that directing responsibilities have been taken up by Zack Snyder.

Says Nolan, “In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far more difficult than creating the world of the Dark Knight. [Snyder] has a lot of finishing to do on the movie — it has a very long postproduction schedule because, unlike Batman, Superman flies.”

We’ll get to see if he was right or not when Man of Steel releases June 14, 2013.
