Superman moves its date as Henry Cavill praises script


By Adam Frazier
Hollywoodnews.com: News recently broke that “Man of Steel,” director Zack Snyder’s new Superman movie, has been pushed back to June 14, 2013 — six months later than what had been previously scheduled.

David Goyer penned the script and developed the story with Christopher Nolan, who has kept plot details under wraps. Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in Snyder’s upcoming film, visited San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H to talk about his new film “Immortals” and was asked about the release date change by moderator Geoff Boucher of The Los Angeles Times.

Cavill declined to comment.

“There’s nothing I can say,” Cavill admitted, “other than it’s one of the best scripts I’ve ever read. … I can’t wait to get started.”

Of course, what was Cavill going to say? That the script rivaled “Spider-Man 3” or Schumacher’s “Batman & Robin” in terms emotional depth and artistic vision?

Of course he’s going to hail the script as a brilliant piece of writing — but then again, with the minds behind “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight” involved, there’s a chance Snyder’s Superman movie could actually be great. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait six more months to see if that’s the case.

DigitalSpy suggests the schedule change is to avoid clashes (and diminished box office returns) with Warner Bros’ other huge December release, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which will be released on December 14, 2012.

The holiday season for 2012 is already packed with major releases, including “The Lone Ranger, and Quentin Tarantino ‘s hotly anticipated “Django Unchained.” Even with “Man of Steel” moving to 2013, 2012 will still be another huge year for the superhero sub-genre, thanks to tent-pole releases like Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” and most importantly, Christopher Nolan’s epic conclusion to the Dark Knight legend, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

“Man of Steel” stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon and Russell Crowe, who’s set to play Jor-El, Superman’s biological father from Krypton.
