INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
What’s more powerful than a locomotive? The Man of Steel marketing machine. Now that we’re in the final countdown to the premiere of Warner Bros.’ franchise reboot, it’s all Superman, all the time, with director Zack Snyder sitting down with countless media outlets.
While talking recently with Collider‘s partner site Omelete, he dropped a few interesting morsels about the film, so if you want to avoid potential Man of Steel spoilers, we recommend reading no further.
The director revealed there’s a little bit of DC Comics synergy going on, with a nod in the movie to Batman, or at least Bruce Wayne. “The Wayne Enterprises logo is on a satellite that Zod destroys,” Snyder said.
Snyder also made note of another prominent DC Universe businessman by mentioning Superman’s best known foe when answering a question about the potential for Batman getting in on the action in Man of Steel 2. “I don’t know,” the director said. “Everything is interesting at this point. And don’t forget that Lex is out there, doing who knows what …” We know from close analysis of one of the trailers that, at the very least, Luthor’s LexCorp makes an appearance in the film.
Of course, the director didn’t reveal all of his secrets. To get a look at those, you’ll have to check out Man of Steel in theaters on June 14.
