Christopher Nolan initially unhappy with ‘Man Of Steel’ ending
Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen ‘Man Of Steel’ yet. Then you may not want to read any further.
In a new interview with Empire Magazine Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan, who was the producer on ‘Man Of Steel’ revealed that he wasn’t initially happy with the ending of the film.
Apparently Nolan had issues with Superman killing General Zod at the close of the movie.
“In the original version of the script, Zod just got zapped into the Phantom Zone,” Snyder revealed. “But [writer] David [S Goyer], Chris and I had long talks about it, and I said that I really feel like we should kill Zod, and that Superman should kill him.
“The ‘Why?’ of it for me was that if it was truly an origin story, his aversion to killing is unexplained.
“I wanted to create a scenario where Superman, either he’s going to see [Metropolis's citizens] chopped in half, or he’s gotta do what he’s gotta do.”
Goyer went on to explain that he had always been in support of the idea, but it had taken longer to convince Nolan, whose original response had been: “There’s no way you can do this.”
“I came up with this idea of heat vision and these people about to die,” Goyer said. “I wrote the scene, gave it to Chris, and he said, ‘OK, you’ve convinced me’.”
