Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Superman can be annoying in a cynical age and that is where we have been since the 60's...this makes Clark more appealing to a woman like Lois as long as he isn't a jackass.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Emma Thomas's remarks here sum up why I'm worried about this Snyder-helmed Superman:
[...] she made it clear that in the case of "Superman," Nolan and David Goyer just had an idea they couldn't believe wasn't being explored by Warner Bros. And with Zack Snyder now on board as director, Nolan will be busy making "The Dark Knight Rises" and "we are handing it off to him." So, take note anyone out there thinking this will be a strange Nolan/Snyder partnership. Thomas reiterated that they brought it to an appropriate screenplay and it's now Snyder's picture.
(Emphasis in original).

Snyder with free reign kills any interest I may have harbored for this project.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I don't think Nolan would have hired a director just to shoe horn and control him. That doesn't seem like Chris's style. I think people should wait until we see an actual trailer before freaking out or not.

Routh was fine in SR and he could easily do whatever Snyder's looking for - no version of Superman is ever going to be Hamlet, sorry (and, BTW, no version of Batman ever has been, either ). The reason for not using him would simply be that Snyder has no reason to connect this film with the previous one, and that said there must be dozens of actors who can do the part.
I dunno. If finding a decent Superman were that easy, I think we would have had a bunch more Superman movies by now. But then, I feel the same way about Superman Returns and the rush to reboot it. The 19 year gap between Superman IV & Superman Returns and the MANY failed attempts in the interim demonstrates that making a Superman movie is HARD! Putting together any Superman movie is practically a miracle and I think that Warner Bros. should have recognized that by allowing Routh & Singer more time to grow into the franchise.

I think Parker read for Lois if I'm not mistaken.
Really? I hadn't heard that. In fact, I got the impression from the bonus features on the DVD that Singer hadn't even met Posey until the first day of shooting.

One other actress I did hear they auditioned for Lois Lane was Keri Russell. I think she would have been brilliant! But then, I've had a huge crush on her ever since Felicity, a crush that has been recently rekindled by Running Wilde & Mission Impossible III.

I don't believe that my reaction could be classified as "freaking out." I've seen three of Snyder's five films to date, and I didn't like a single one of them. Dawn of the Dead bored me; I literally fell asleep watching 300 and couldn't stand its stylization; and I felt his adaptation of Watchmen was lacking in soul. As for Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole and Sucker Punch, I can't say that what I've seen of either one interests me in the least bit at all. With Snyder batting zero for five in my opinion, I am naturally rapidly losing interest in this Superman film, a fact that I find to be very disappointing considering the initial hope garnered by Nolan and Goyer's involvement.

I find it amusing, in fact, that I initially had no interest in either X-Men: First Class or Wolverine, yet 20th Century Fox bringing Matthew Vaughn and Darren Aronofsky, respectively, onboard for those two films has resulted in me doing a 180 on both, all while Warner Bros. killed my interest in a film I did originally want to see.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

^I'm not talking about you specifically Pyscho Pere...I'm talking about fans in general including myself. I've read what people have had to say about Synder's films and I tend to agree with the criticism given him for the most part. I think "300" is highly overrated myself , enjoyed "Watchmen", didn't care for the owl movie, and haven't seen the "Dawn of the Dead" remake despite reading and being told that it's his best movie. I'm really looking forward to "Sucker Punch". I get people hesitations over his style, it's not for everyone. I just think though without really knowing the actual plot (aside from rumors and reports from unknown sources online) or really anything else it's kind of difficult to comment on this project. As a Superman fan I'm excited that this is finally rolling. As to the plot and other things I've mentioned I'm gonna wait until casting starts happening and we see footage before really praising and or criticizing. Again I wasn't meaning to pick on you specifically Pyscho Pere.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Casting will be the next thing people will get all crazy about until there are images of stuff & a trailer.

Oh, no worries. I felt like expanding on my dislike of Snyder a bit, anyways, and responding to your post did present an opportunity to do so.

Although Snyder faces a situation with me that may well be impossible to surmount, I would prefer to be wrong about my concerns. As you say, we won't be able to judge anything concrete until we have casting information, trailers, and so on. I just tend to be very skeptical since news went from an amazingly promising short list of directors to the final choice of Snyder.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I was really hoping that Duncan Jones would get the nod even though it would have delayed "Mute" which I'm really looking forward to seeing. I think he would have been able to make an amazingly good Superman movie. I am inclined to believe that it was indeed "Mute" that made Duncan pass on this opportunity but I've not read anything to really make that comment, it's just speculation. I know that another concern is Zack's use of CGI and green screen. I will admit that this is something that has me concerned about this project but not to the extent others are.

Superman Movie Shooting in Vancouver
While "Superman Returns" was filmed in Sydney, Australia, it looks like Zack Snyder's new Superman movie is headed to Vancouver, Canada.
"[Zack Snyder's] next feature's coming here," said Peter Leitch, chair of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of BC and president of North Shore Studios and Mammoth Studios.
Leitch would not name Superman: Man of Steel as the film in question, but a source has confirmed that the next film in the Superman franchise will be shot in Vancouver next year, with production likely beginning in the summer.

"It's good news," said Leitch, who says the local production industry has been on fire thanks in part to the HST, but also because of the experienced film crews in Vancouver, the quality of life here and the city's proximity to Los Angeles.

Smallville is filmed in Vancouver, BC.

It's impossible to make such a movie now without heavy reliance on green/bluescreen and CG.

That's awesome that the production is coming here if it is confirmed that is.
