Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN
In fact it was two weeks ago that he commented on the short list. He obviously reconsidered and probably did so after reading the script or was pitched the story by Nolan. It amuses me that knee jerk fan reaction to stories (I include myself big time in this) we have no idea how Zod will be used and yet there are already some who dislike the idea of him being used. No one had this reaction when Nolan announced that Joker and Two-Face would be used as villains in "Dark Knight" that I remember and that movie turned out okay and Batman has a plethora of rouges that can be used. Nolan happened to find those two characters interesting. I suspect that the Nolan brothers and Goyer find Zod an interesting character. I wouldn't be surprised if Geoff Johns had something to do with his use in the film either.
