Building a Better Superman: How Zack Snyder Can Forge a New Man of Steel

• Hugh Hart via
Now that producer Christopher Nolan has entrusted Zack Snyder with stewardship of the Superman movie franchise, things should get really interesting.

Nolan and Watchmen director Snyder aim to revive the legacy established by Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve in 1978’s Superman movie, which was sullied by a string of less successful movies (most recently Bryan Singer’s lackluster 2006 Superman Returns).

Snyder’s not talking (much) about the movie, tentatively titled Superman, but he told PopWatch that the Man of Steel reboot would be similar to Nolan’s wildly successful Batman movies.

“Think of where Batman was when Chris took that on earlier in the decade,” Snyder said. “I think Superman is in a very similar place, in terms of being available and in terms of his relationship to where the culture was at that time. Superman is right there. He’s ready. And can I be any more cryptic?”
