Zack Snyder, he of 300 and Legend of the Guardians, is going to direct the next Superman movie. I think what really got him the job was Watchmen, and with Christopher Nolan producing, I think it has great potential.
My main problems with the Bryan Singer movie was Lois Lane, not only the actress but the entire dynamic of her having a kid and a fiance. It made the whole thing too mopey. Brandon Routh and Kevin Spacey were good, I thought, but I don't want to see Superman brood.
So where will this new one go? Sure, maybe he'll fly shirtless with exceptional abs and slo-mo hover here and there. I trust Nolan, and I've liked Snyder's previous stuff. I just hope they don't make the mistake of making it too dark.
