Zack Snyder To Helm New Superman Movie

Right, the Man of Steel in a pencil rendering by the late Curt Swan.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that a director of the new Superman movie has been chosen:

Zack Snyder has been chosen to direct the new Superman movie, which Christopher Nolan is producing for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. Negotiations began earlier today.

Snyder, who directed "300" and "Watchmen," had been on the list of helmers ensconced in meetings with Nolan and Warners execs, who in recent weeks have talked to Darren Aronofsky, Ben Affleck, Matt Reeves and Tony Scott.

While the last Superman movie, Superman Returns, had spectacular special effects and it made over $200 million, it is considered a flop as it failed to re-start the franchise.

It is rumored that the movie is to feature the Kryptonian villain, General Zod. Right now, Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers are being tight-lipped.

But who will play the Man of Steel? Whomever it is, he has to look like Superman, not Superboy. And ditch that last costume design!

  1. Completely agree with you. Drop the last costume design.

  2. Smallville come to an end and would be great publicity before the film. Tom Welling Co. has done an excellent job as a prequel to the legend.

  3. Zack Snyder? And here I thought Nolan was one of the smarter filmmakers! Here's hoping his deft filmmaking skills will prove a strong influence over Snyder's preference of effects over script.

    FWIW, I liked Routh as Supes, but Lois Lane was a wimp. And the storyline was a dud for sure.

  4. Great news!

    Great rendering by Curt (RIP); looks like it's ready to be inked by Murphy Anderson!
