"That’s the great thing about our Superman. He is more relatable"

We are still so hyped up about that tiny clue Henry gave us this week, on Superman's potential storyline in Justice League.

The movie is in its final weeks of filming at the Warner Bros. studios outside of London, and a few months ago some journalists were allowed a set visit.

Mark Hughes was among them, and this week he published more from his chat with producer Debbie Snyder. She explains how they've worked to make Supes more relatable:

And it’s all so human, right? It’s about these journeys. I mean, Zack really loves Joseph Campbell and the hero’s journey. And these characters are just so mythic, and their journeys– I always say they’re journeys are what we can relate to. Because we can’t relate to their powers, so what do you have?

That’s the great thing about our Superman. He is more relatable. Someone said, “It’s so dark,” and I go, “Well, is it dark? He’s going through real problems that we go through as people every day.” To me that’s not dark, that’s life. We’re complicated people. And we’re making him in that way more relatable.

So I don’t think that’s dark, I think that’s just who we are. People are complex, we’re not strictly just the good Boy Scout trying to do good. He does want to do good, and I think all of the things Superman represents are who he is, but he also stumbles along the way and learns from it. To me, that’s so much more interesting.

You can see the progression of Henry's character from Man of Steel to Batman v Superman, so we're really excited to see where he goes next.

While Batman v Superman has its critics, that hasn't stopped the film from staying at the top of the disc sales charts for a month now.. and cinematographer Larry Fong is loving every second of it.

Even the family pets are enjoying watching the film at home ;)

And look who is already inspiring comic book artists with his Superman..

Go Henry!

Have a lovely rest of your weekend everyone.
