Zack Snyder is directing SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL

Zack Snyder has been chosen to direct  the new installment of Superman for Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures. Snyder was on a short list of directors, as was recently revealed, who met with the studio as well as producers Chris Nolan and Emma Thomas. Other choices at the time included helmers Tony Scott, Matt Reeves, Jonathan Liebesman, and Duncan Jones. I think Snyder is a great choice. He is the visionary director who directed the films 300, Watchmen, Legend of the Guardians, and the upcoming Sucker Punch. Deadline revealed back on February 9 that the DC Comics stalwart Superman became a priority project when Nolan agreed to godfather it. He and David S. Goyer hatched the story and Goyer wrote the script. The new Superman's producers also include  Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder while co-financer Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull will serve as executive producer.

Superman is one of those superheroes/superhero stories that require somebody who can really make it, not only one with a great storyline, but one hell of an action-packed movie. In my personal opinion, all the previous Superman movies failed because they diminish the action aspect and give too much weight on the love story aspect. And with the last Superman movie that completely diminishes the action aspect to almost zero content (all because its director wanted to pay homage to the old Superman movies), the franchise sealed its doom and was immediately set for a major overhaul (yet again). With Snyder on the helm, David Goyer on the pen, and Chris Nolan as its godfather; this certainly now looks immensely promising.
