Zack Snyder named as Superman director


There have been some high profile names bandied about recently regarding the director of the new Superman movie. Darren Aronofsky was reportedly in the frame, which would have been an interesting and exciting choice and of course Christopher Nolan is producing it.

Tonight Deadline has announced that the gig has been given to Zack Snyder.


Personally, I’m not a fan. 300 managed to bore me senseless and somehow he managed to rip the heart and soul out of Watchmen. While Bryan Singer’s 2006 attempt was flawed, I can’t imagine Snyder’s version being any better.

Still, let’s not judge too harshly yet. The script and casting will be absolutely key. I’ll be keeping a close eye on this one (while feeling very sorry for poor Brandon Routh).
