Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I'm torn. On the one hand, I loved Dawn of the Dead, loved 300, loved Watchmen. Zack Snyder carries a lot of cachet, as far as I'm concerned.

On the other hand, I find Superman an aggressively uninteresting character and every prior attempt to bring him to the big screen has been, at best, ridiculous. Too, Snyder's previous films have featured rather dark subject matter and a sceptical, to say the least, view of humanity--how will that stylistic outlook be reconcilled with Superman's puppy-dog mentality and vomitous Grant Wood worldview?

Still, I'm intrigued, which is more than I've been able to say about this project. If the trailers and reviews are good, I might actually go see this in theatres.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
