Deadline Hollywood is breaking the story that confirms Zack Snyder will direct the next Superman movie, following work on Sucker Punch.
“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.”
Snyder is probably the best choice for Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. for a several reasons
- Snyder understands comic book movies and knows how to bring the vision of the creator to the screen
- He has a unique look that will be best served by a film of this type
- Since this film will have a great deal of special effects, he knows what it takes to make them happen
- This would be his third major film with Warner Bros, and his two previous did bring in the bucks
Nolan, Goyer, and Snyder? Sounds like a big win to me.
