Zak Snyder To Direct Superman Reboot
Well, it looks like the first "domino" has fallen in regards to the Christopher Nolan produced reboot.
Zak Snyder has revealed that once he finishes production on Sucker Punch, he will be taking up the reigns as director of Superman's 20-plus-years-in-the-making big-screen reboot.
Read all about it here:
"I just spoke with Zack Snyder, who confirms that as soon as he completes post on Sucker Punch, he'll move right into Warner Bros' long awaited next Man of Steel movie in development with Chris Nolan and David Goyer. "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," Snyder, who directed Watchmen and 300, told me. "It's early yet, but I can tell you that what David and Chris 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."
Honestly, I think this is a great choice, and if nothing else, we will actually get a Superman who does more than mope, whine and lift things.
