My vote for director is Matthew Vaughan
Yes, because he's had a great track record at bringing comic-book characters to screen.

Vaughn is actually busy prepping Mark Millar's Kick-Ass at the moment, so I think that's going to occupy his time for a while.
Actually he's planning his escape route from Kick-Ass.

Just kidding.

I also think he's the wrong choice. His sensibility doesn't seem like it would gel with Superman, in my opinion.
Between Layer cake and Stardust, Vaughan has demonstrated the ability to deliver films with widely varying styles and tones. I thought Stardust was great, so I think Vaughan has the capacity to deliver a Superman film with the right mix of drama, humor and action.

I think Gore Verbinksi would actually be an interesting choice. Not for his Pirates of the Caribbean films as much as for The Weather Man, which remains one of my favorite films of the past few years.
Verbinski would be a good choice, too, as long as he didn't make a Superman film as bloated and overlong as the Pirates sequels.
