Zack Snyder to direct next Superman film
 
http://heatvision.hollywoodreporter....medium=twitter

Nolan and Zack Snyder, definitely an interesting team. There are already rumors now that Zod is going to be the villain.

I have to say I'm excited that it "appears" they aren't going to go totally out of left field and do something stupid and out of character for Superman.

I wish Affleck would have taken the gig but he declined.

I'm not a fan of Snyder's films.

Watchmen SUCKED. 300 is a fun movie, but only because it's so utterly ridiculous. Hopefully Nolan can keep it all in check.

I enjoyed Watchmen. I have zero knowledge of the comic series though.

I guess I have been surprised by the negative reaction online. A lot of "slow mo Superman" jokes. But I don't think he'll do this movie exactly like 300. We'll see. I just want someone to do it right. Don't get cute and change everything to be gritty or emo, don't cop out and say he's too much of a boy scout... take something that resembles the Superman character of the last 70+ years and make a great film. It can be done.

How's that?

You didn't like the random tits and awkward eff scene in a giant owl ship?

I'm a huge fan of the Watchmen comic, and I can't get through the movie. I've tried to sit and watch it numerous times, but I just can't get through it. It's too long, too boring. There's little to no real character development, focuses way too much on visuals instead of storyline, and has really terrible acting.

Yuck.

I'm a huge fan of the comic, too. There was no way that the film could do what the comic did. There's no room for all the metatextual elements. As is, the film was pretty darn long and covered the plot of the comic. All the little bits of artistry had to be shelved.

Even still, the Watchmen film is the best comic book movie yet made, IMO. As for acting: Malin Akerman wasn't good, and Matthew Goode wasn't believable as a physical presence. The other performances, however, were quite good. Patrick Wilson & Jeffrey Dean Morgan totally got their characters, and Billy Crudup & Jackie Earl Haley totally knocked their performances out of the park.

Silock 10-05-2010 12:15 AM

I thought Haley and Morgan were great, Crudup was good, but I wasn't a fan of anyone else.

And it's not so much the length that I had a problem with, but the way the scenes seemed to drag on or not add to the storyline.

OMG! Nolan, Snyder AND General Zod is the villain! I can hardly contain my enthusiasm over this! Effing FANTASTIC!

SnakeXJones 10-05-2010 12:21 AM

Guru 10-05-2010 12:33 AM

Guru 10-05-2010 12:40 AM

Zack Snyder will direct the next Superman movie, which will have Zod as the villain. Could this be the final nail in the coffin of a big budget epic Captain Marvel movie that features Black Adam? Although we know better that Zod is a rip off of Black Adam http://dcboards.warnerbros.com/web/i...icons/wink.gif the general public would see it the other way around, should "Shazam" be released soon after "Man Of Steel".

So, there are three options: Drop Black Adam out of the movie,
or
kill the movie and go with the watered down network TV series (the treatment Wonder Woman is getting stuck with)
or
rework the movie so that Black Adam is actually the centerpiece of the narrative, with Captain Marvel more of a supporting character (the route the mainstream DCU continuity has taken the last few years).

IMO, the first option would be best.

Is it too late to ask for a high quality animated TV series instead??????

Deberg_1990 10-05-2010 06:25 AM

Not sure how i feel about it yet. Snyder has talent, but IMO has turned into a CGI bore. General Zod as a villian is an interesting choice. Why couldnt they try a villian who hasnt been done before on the big screen like Bizzaro or Brainiac?
