Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Ugh, I really hope this doesn't go down the same way his last two movies did with me-- so thrilling and visually spectacular in the theater... and then after the hype's gone and you watch them again you find they're just a bunch of empty style with no heart or substance whatsoever.

As far as villains go though, I have no problem bringing back Zod. It'll hopefully allow for more of a intellectual threat to Supes instead of just being something for him to punch for two hours.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

UGH.... My gut reaction to this news is just NO.

This will just mean LOTS of slow-mo, an complete lack of subtlety, and bizarre adaption choices. Nooo... As someone else mentioned, Snyder is pretty much the Hollywood definition of "All style and no substance".

It will be interesting to see what else Snyder is capable of because IMO Superman calls for a different style than he usually delivers.

From what we know so far it'll have no quasi-sequel connection to any previous Superman films, but it won't be an origin story like Batman Begins. It'll start with Superman already established as a superhero.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Zach Snyder; great news.

General Zod AGAIN; bad news.

Zod is so terribly overused and isn't that interesting in the first place. The only time I found him well written was in the Superman New Krypton story because he wasn't technically the villain in it. Hopefully they'll take a page from the recent interpretation and not make him a world conquering maniac.

I've heard it's going to be a "hard-edged origin story", but then again I could be wrong.

Routh isn't likely to don the red and blue tights again, Snyder said.

I am not surprised.

Does that mean lots of time on Krypton establishing a familiar connection before moving the action to Earth? Hard Edged? Help me out with what that means, not sure I've heard that phrase used before.

That's disappointing, but yeah, I'm not surprised either.

NO! He's going to be the Flash

Not surprised that Routh won't be considered. It's Snyder's Superman movie.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

With Zod, they can rip off the I Am Legend poster....

"The last son of Krypton is not alone."

If Superman's been around for a while: Jim Caviezel.

If Superman is still fairly young: Matthew Bomer.

To ensure that Nolan's Batman and Snyder's Superman never crossover: Christian Bale.

Goyer is writing the script, which is rumored to have, like “Superman Returns,” a Richard Donner Superman connection. In the movie’s case, it’s a villain connection: General Zod.
Unless they use the Zod storyline from Superman and Superman II as what happens before this movie, that's not a direct connection. That's like saying The Dark Knight is connected to both Batman (Joker) and Batman Forever (Two-Face).

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Does Snyder have compromising photos of the execs at WB or something? He keeps making mediocre movies that underperform yet keeps landing great projects.
