Los Angeles, June 29 (IANS) Filmmaker Christopher Nolan has revealed that he is watching the 1978 “Superman” film for inspiration for the remake of the superhero movie.
The “Batman Begins” director is producing the upcoming “Superman” remake alongside his brother Jonah Nolan and David S Goyer. And he aspires to achieve the same success as filmmaker Richard Donner did in the very first adaptation of the comic book story, reports

“I was hugely struck by the Donner films in the ’70s when I was a kid. In 1978 I saw ‘Superman’ and it had such an epic scope to it. It took on this incredible, iconic figure and gave that iconic figure an appropriate framing,” said Nolan.

“It made quite an impression on me. It’s definitely one of my childhood touchstones on what epic cinema can be,” he added.
