Zack Snyder Directing New Superman


We’re back everybody, and we return to the news that Zack Snyder has come aboard the new Superman film, which is either great news or horrible news depending on whether or not you think he’s worth a shit as a director. Personally, I think he’s a great visuals guy, kind of like the digital-age Tim Burton, where everything looks amazing but ultimately the content isn’t all that great.

Luckily, Snyder is working off a script from the Nolans, which should be nearly impossible to screw up. With his visuals accompanying what I assume will be a bang-up screenplay, we may actually get a truly unique film version of the man of steel.

He spoke to Deadline earlier and was quotes as saying; ““I’ve been a big fan of the character for a long time, he’s definitely the king of all superheroes, he’s the one. It’s early yet, but I can tell you that what David (Goyer) and Chris (Nolan) have done with the story so far definitely has given me a great insight into a way to make him feel modern. I’ve always felt he was kind of awesome. I’ll finish ‘Sucker Punch’ and get right at it.” Which to me, gives off the impression that no matter what happens this thing isn’t going to feel like the Donner or Singer versions one bit at all. A part of that comes from the fact that according to Snyder, they will not be bringing back Brandon Routh to fill out the cape.

Now comes the part where everyone argues on the internet for two years before the movie even comes out. I’m going to ignore all of it and go watch porn, because fanboy whining is getting old but I never get tired of watching two girls make out in a jacuzzi.
