The Man of Steel, 3

.

During story discussions for The Dark Knight Rises in 2008, David S. Goyer, aware that Warner Bros. was planning a Superman reboot, told Christopher Nolan his idea on how to present Superman in a modern context. Impressed with Goyer’s concept, Nolan pitched the idea to the studio in February 2010, who hired Nolan to produce and Goyer to write based on the financial and critical success of The Dark Knight. Nolan admired Singer’s work on Superman Returns for its connection to Richard Donner’s version, and previously used the 1978 film as casting inspiration for Batman Begins. “They had [Marlon] Brando and Glenn Ford and Ned Beatty and all these fantastic actors in even small parts,” Nolan continued, “which was an exotic idea for a superhero movie at the time.”
