Zach Snyder Chosen to Direct Superman

zack snyder

I am part ugh and part oh well about the choice of Zach Snyder (300, Watchmen, That Owl Movie) to direct the next installment of Superman. To me, its all style and no substance when it comes to Snyder’s films. Dawn of the Dead, a movie I actually enjoyed, sucked the life out of the original; discarding the post-consumerism commentary with faster zombies and canted angles. Watchmen was a barely watchable snoozefest. 300 had some exciting moments, but it was mostly slow-mo muscley beach boys hammering on one another. I can only hope, he has some new tricks behind the lens and Nolan can keep the story full and interesting.

UPDATE: Zod rumored to be the baddie. Also there is a tentative holiday 2012 release date.

    I just threw-up in my mouth a little…

    It could be good or could be horrible.I just hope they don’t go with Zod for the villain or it will be leaning more to the horrible side.

    I agree with Mike. I think it’s high time for a Braniac movie!

  • Mike M

    Yep me too.I would like to see one with all the Braniac’s in it.Then they would have to introduce the Legion too.Which I would be down with.I don’t think that is going happen.I hope the Legion can at least get a cameo appearence.
