Zack Snyder Directing Superman Reboot

Zack Snyder 
Heat Vision is reporting Director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Dawn of the Dead) has been hired to direct the upcoming reboot of Superman.  

Zack Snyder was just one of five directors on the short-list that Christopher Nolan picked to direct the Superman reboot. The other directors include:  Matt Reeves (Cloverfield), Tony Scott (Unstoppable), Jonathan Liebesman (Battlefield: Los Angeles) and Duncan Jones (Moon).  

I think Snyder was the best choice of the bunch to be honest.  He has had the most experience in comic-book movies and he can really make superman awesome again. 

Snyder just had an interview with Deadline and said "I've been a big fan of the character for a long time, he's definitely the king of all superheroes, he's the one. It's early yet, but I can tell you that what David [Goyer] and Chris [Nolan] have done with the story so far definitely has given me a great insight into a way to make him feel modern. I've always felt he was kind of awesome. I'll finish 'Sucker Punch' and get right at it."

The Superman Reboot is being fast tracked at Warner Bros. because of the legal problems with the superman creators (Joe Shuster and Jerry Seigel) relatives. Warner Bros. has to be in-production of the film by 2011 or the rights go to the relatives and no more superman movies.  

This superman film has potential to be an amazing comic-book film because it has The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan as executive producer and Batman begins writer David S. Goyer. Then they have Watchmen director Zack Snyder directing it.  This could be so epic.
