Zack Snyder's 'Superman' will be "physical".

The filmmaker - who is directing the forthcoming movie 'Superman: Man of Steel' with Henry Cavill as the flying hero - refused to confirm specifics about the script of the film but did admit he had ideas in mind of how his version of the character would be.

He said: "I can't really talk about that without being kind of specific. But I can say I think Superman needs to be physical."

Further discussing the movie, '300' director Zack said he is a long-term fan of the superhero but is thinking how he would fit in "the modern world".

He told SFX Magazine: "My feeling about Superman is that I've been a fan of the character for a long time. But the question for me was always, 'What can you do with Superman in a modern world?'

"And I think the amazing thing that Chris Nolan Batman and David Goyer have created ('Batman'), that I'm working on now, and the reason why I was like, 'Yeah, I'll do that,' was that they found that in him. They found the why in him. That's the exciting part for me."

Lindsay Lohan has been among a number of actresses named as a possibility for the lead female role of Lois Lane in the project, with Olivia Wilde and Kristen Stewart also screen tested.
