A director has finally been chosen to bring the Superman franchise back to the glory it knew in the days of Christopher Reeve. The last Superman movie, Superman Returns, wasn’t a bad movie. It just didn’t live up to the hype. Brandon Routh was actually a pretty good Superman, Kate Bosworth was a terrible Lois Lane, and it was decided that the series needed a reboot rather than live on in the previous franchise’s shadow. The man chosen to direct the newest incarnation of the man of steel is Zack Snyder.
Zack Snyder is best known for directing Dawn of the Dead, 300, and Watchmen. He did a pretty good job with both of those movies, although Watchmen did draw some criticism. Some fans of the Watchmen series didn’t think Snyder put in enough stuff from the comic, while some casual moviegoers thought that he put in too much. Either way, he managed to make two films that were talked about and entertained audiences, so he is a safe bet to make a Superman reboot that will garner some attention. Zack Snyder isn’t the only positive sign for the Superman reboot though.
You have probably heard of the Christopher Nolan. He has been involved with some great movies, two of them based off of another famous DC comic book character, Batman. He is also the executive producer for the Superman reboot. The man knows his way around some comic book mythos, so expect him to lend a helping hand to Zack Snyder in developing a comic book movie everybody will enjoy.
