CGI-Suited ‘Superman’ Further Claimed for Zack Snyder’s Reboot

Posted on 24 November 2010 by Christian

New reports make further mention of Warner Bros. pushing for a CGI-suited ‘Man of Steel’ for Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, now claiming to be against the idea. Check it Out!

Now according to IESB, certain Warner Bros. execs had the idea of rebooting The Man of Steel in all CGI after their release of Watchmen, even while some thought it’d be best if his costume alone was CGI. At the time lacking a solid group of filmmakers, things were put on hold for the reboot.

“Even when Chris Nolan came aboard the decision was still up in the air but some of those WB execs have started to lean that direction once again now that Zack Snyder has officially come aboard to direct. The idea would be that the new Superman suit would use CGI, basically very similar to what filmmakers have used in the Green Lantern.

Speaking with an FX pro that is currently working on Green Lantern, he has mentioned that some test shots of what a CGI Superman suit would look like have already been done. While he thinks it’s possible to get a cool look, there is no reason to go that direction and he is not the only one to feel that way.”

The site claims they were notified of this rumor over six months ago, but decided not to publish it; unable to get any solid confirmation. With the rumor erected, a few of their different sources in the industry says both Chris Nolan & Zack Snyder are NOT thrilled of the CGI suit idea. “No reason or need for it,” says their insider. What do you think?

Anyhow, The Man of Steel is scheduled for a July shoot, hitting theaters Winter 2012.

    Well hell, why not just have a CGI actor in a CGI suit fighting a CGI villain? Then put CGI audiences in theaters watching it.
