In the largest bit of movie related news that the day has to offer, Zack Snyder was just recently revealed to be the director for the upcoming Superman movie. This decision was sparked not long after he met with Batman Begins director Christopher Nolan; I’m assuing Nolan vouched for him and Warner Bros decided to go along for the ride.
Snyder, who’s known for movies such as 300 and Watchmen is certainly an interesting choice to direct a movie about the Man of Steel. There’s no telling yet as to whether or not Synder will be picking up, story line wise, where Bryan Singer left off or if he’ll do his own thing. Either way, what is certain is that Snyder’s vision for Superman will probably be extraordinarily flashy and visually mind numbing…if he does his job correctly. The way I see it this can go either extremely well or so bad that it’s as though Cthulhu himself entered Snyder’s mind, forcing him to generate utter insanity. Regardless, I’m excited about Superman finally being made. After the horrendous amount of legal issues that have surfaced in the past few months, it’s nice to see something good happening for the Last Son of Krypton.
