Talking to clevverTv.com about his upcoming episode of Glee, actor Dylan Sprayberry also dished out a few intriguing tidbits about Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
Question:Can you tell us a little about Man of Steel and your upcoming projects?
Sprayberry: I just finished shooting Man of Steel. That was in Canada and Chicago. I filmed that all last year. After that I did “Common Law.” That’s going to be on USA coming up pretty soon. I played the son of Sonya Walger. That was really cool.
Question: What will people really love about Man of Steel?
Sprayberry: When Zack [Snyder] and I were talking about it the first time, he was saying how Superman, they want to give it a more edgy feel like The Dark Knight but also make it more realistic and emotional so it’s not just the all-american superhero that saves everyone. He has dilemmas and love and struggles throughout the whole movie, especially when he’s a kid.
Dylan Sprayberry will portray young Clark Kent in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot.
Man of Steel is an upcoming superhero film under the development of Zack Snyder, Christopher Nolan, and David S. Goyer.
