In the interview, Crowe said that "Man of Steel" was a really complicated and complex story. Crowe, who plays Superman's birth day Jor El, said that the entire focus of the movie is to look at the "psychology" of what it is like to be Superman and how real people in society would react to such a super powered being in their midst.
This ties in with what producer Christopher Nolan said before about the movie. Nolan said that this movie was based in the real world, and while some people mistakenly assumed he meant realistic like his "Dark Knight" trilogy, he in fact meant that it was realistic in looking at what the real world would think of a "God-like" being with almost unlimited powers.
Crowe also mentioned that he is very optimistic about the movie because the financer, Thomas Tull, doesn't mince words and actually seems excited about the movie, saying the movie should do really well. Crowe is also very excited about the scenes with him on Krypton and the entire scope of the film.
"It's a massive undertaking, the type of sets we worked on in that film were incredible," Crowe said. It takes you to the ground on Krypton. It takes you to a planet where the sun is four times larger than ours.
"I think people are going to love it and if you've seen the trailer, you realize that this Superman is not just floating through the air, held up by a wire," he continued. "This Superman is supersonic, when he decides to fly, he doesn't muck around."
"Man of Steel" hits theaters on June 14, 2013.
