TIM BURTON & NICK CAGE’s SUPERMAN LIVES Screenwriter Reveals 'Our Superman Was in Therapy'

TIM BURTON & NICK CAGE’s SUPERMAN LIVES Screenwriter Reveals 'Our Superman Was in Therapy' | Geek Therapy | Scoop.it

I was very much taken by Tim's approach, which was that Kal-El was not told by Jor-El, before he got put in the little spaceship, who he was or where he came from,” Gilroy tells Indiewire. “So poor little Kal-El, when he winds up on earth, he has no freaking idea where he came from. His biggest fear is that he's an alien. Our Superman was in therapy at the beginning of the film. He's in a relationship with Lois Lane and he can't commit. Or he was maybe in couple's therapy. But he can't commit because he doesn't know who he is or what is going on with him. He's hoping that he has some physiological condition that gives him these powers but that he's still human.”

 

Gilroy states that in his script draft, Clark Kent doesn’t realize he’s an alien until Lex Luthor finds remnants of the spacecraft that took him to  Earth.

 

“It was all about the psychological trauma of it,” added Gilroy. “I loved it.”

Can Playing the Computer Game “Tetris” Reduce the Build-Up of Flashbacks for Trauma? A Proposal from Cognitive Science

Can Playing the Computer Game “Tetris” Reduce the Build-Up of Flashbacks for Trauma? A Proposal from Cognitive Science | Geek Therapy | Scoop.it
Conslusions: Playing “Tetris” after viewing traumatic material reduces unwanted, involuntary memory flashbacks to that traumatic film, leaving deliberate memory recall of the event intact. Pathological aspects of human memory in the aftermath of trauma may be malleable using non-invasive, cognitive interventions. This has implications for a novel avenue of preventative treatment development, much-needed as a crisis intervention for the aftermath of traumatic events.
