Thank God, someone who isn't afraid of the fantastic and won't make it some minimalist crime drama.
I never saw "Watchmen" or "300"...so I dunno.
Hopefully we will get news on who will play Superman in the coming weeks.
Bloodiest Superman movie EVER.
The Heat Vision blog at The Hollywood Reporter also confirms the story. Snyder is one of the more high profile directors who was in the mix and Warners is still very keen on him despite lukewarm box office for his last couple of films, so I guess it was a matter of him stepping up to the plate and agreeing to sign on with Chris Nolan's vision. We're likely to get the most spectacular superhero action scenes in any Superman film to date. The question beyond that is whether Synder gets the tone and casting right. I'm a big fan of his work to date and I'm intrigued to see what he comes up with to say the least.
Hopefully, this means Superman will finally throw a punch in the movie.
Exciting tidbit of information from the Heat Vision article:
From Deadline Hollywood:
It's bad form to just post a link like this. Content. Give us some content!
I don't want Zod. He was already done to perfection in Superman II by Terence Stamp.
I want Brainiac, the robotic computer version from Superman the animated series, to be the Big Bad.
Best news I've seen connected with this movie. Cool.
I'm still mulling over this. Not sure what opinion I have yet.
My guess is the film will have three major villains: Lex Luthor, Brainiac and Zod.
Okay, now that that's out of the way... I like the choice, Snyder's got a good visual eye and I enjoyed all of his movies that I've seen (Dawn of the Dead, 300, and Watchmen). With Nolan producing and Goyer writing, I'm sure this will go well. Now hopefully they back it up with an equally solid cast.
As long as it's not Chris Nolan, I'm happy. That guy really sucks the fun out of superhero movies.
I'm fine with this choice. Snyder knows how to direct action. I'm less thrilled with the villain choice, though. This will be the sixth Superman film, and we still have yet to see Brainiac. That's just ridiculous.
Either Brainiac, Doomsday, or Darkseid. Zod has already been done perfectly.
I hope he's a very involved producer.
Let's hope not.
The only time the multiple villains idea has worked was in Superman II, Batman Returns and X2. Every other superhero movie later on has suffered because of there being too many villains. Batman Forever, Batman and Robin, Spider-Man 3, and Iron Man 2 were too crowded for the story to work.
Both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight had multiple villains and both of those films worked. You just have to be able to juggle the villains thematically speaking so they work within the confines of the story.
