    Next Superman Director Announced

    Zack Snyder to Direct Superman - Movies News at IGN
    Superman Reboot Announces Director and Villain | WorstPreviews.com

    Directed by Zack Snyder(300, Watchmen), who was hand-picked by Chris Nolan (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), with a *screenplay* written by David Goyer (who also wrote the Blade Trilogy, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and the 3rd Batman film).

    This has enough comic-book-to-film talent that this movie should be great, but the last time Warner Bros. went this route it was Bryan Singer directing (X-Men and X-2) and the two writers Singer worked with on X-2.

    What do you fellow comic/movie fans think of Snyder directing the next Superman movie?

    *Forgot you couldn't say the scr...(etc) word on CF*

    I have a hard time getting excited about a Superman movie after Superman Returns. Will this be a sequel to that, or are they rebooting again?

    Im pretty sure a reboot a la Dark Knight. Never been a huge superman fan so the past movies didnt really mean a whole lot to me. Im hoping this next round can really catch me. Actually although it may label me nerd, I very much enjoy the animated Marvel/DC movies that have been made as of late.

    As far as Snyder goes, I never read 300 so I cannot compare the movie to the book. With Watchmen, while I enjoyed the movie, there was no way he could live up to the book. I expected that going in which I think allowed me to enjoy it. Although, he did destroy the ending.

    If there was one weak point of the book, it was the ending.

    movie ending>giant squid monster, imo.

    Watchmen suffered because there was no way you could possibly incorporate all the backstory and flashbacks that made the book interesting into one movie.

    I'm interested to see what they come up with but not sold on the 'dark night' turn they have mentioned. Just give me more Brandon Routh with a more interesting ****** and better villian battles.



    ***** meaning writing of course


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    I bought New Frontier, and I really didn't think it was that great. Not awful, not great, just kind of there. Watched it 2-3 times to see if that would help.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    How can a person not love a gigantic telepathic squid monster. Ozymandias was pretty fond of it.

    I can see your point. When I read the book for the first time, I remember being slightly disappointed with the ending. But then I saw the movie and was disappointed they changed it.

    The flashbacks were tough to do but I still wish they would have done a better job on the chapter that described Manhattan's concept of time. That is my favorite chapter of that book.

    Bad.***.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I agree that "the octopus" was lame. However, the thing I didn't like about the movie ending was that Dr. Manhattan got blamed for everything when that wasn't the case at all.

    If a Superman movie has the chance to work I think this team could be the one to do it. However doing a reboot after a reboot a few years ago seems a little lame. That said, I'm just not a big Superman fan - he is too strong.
