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 .

Everybody I know IRL who saw the movie liked it. Perhaps both of our sample sizes are too small.

Same here, haven't ran into one person who hated it, or was even lukewarm to it. All either thought it was great, or loved it.

I talked to a producer friend tonight that outright hated it. Said Shannon was underused, the dialog was clunky, the final scene ludicrous and the overall tone just crap.

I haven't seen it yet but based on his description, I'll likely be disappointed as well because I thought The Avengers was complete and utter crap, yet it broke box office records.

First I think you just have to be a fan of comics or these types of movies. You like them or you don't.

I do.

On the other hand I hate the superman character.

Not only did I enjoy the film but they found a way to make me care about a character I absolutely can't stand. I'm sure purists and comix-nerds were ticked about a number of key changes to the character that made him less of a boy scout cheeseball and more of a real person.

It made me like the character more. Just like every other human this character is flawed - not the polished and squeaky clean guy we're used to.

Yeah, there were still moments that were unrealistic (even for comic standards) but I thought it was very well done overall. I thought the acting was good. No real cheesy moments. I loved the way they used spread out flashbacks instead of the usual slow and boring first 30 to 45 minutes to build a backstory.

I would say it's the 2nd best comix flick I've seen (bested only by the last two Batman movies.) Keep in mind this is from a guy who hates the character and was looking for any reason to step on 's cape...

Good gawd
Just saw it, and what a piece of crap.
Seemed like I was watching a boring remake of Independence Day... Without the comedy.

I was never into to comic books but I really enjoyed Iron Man. I thought that Iron Man 2 was very poorly written and directed with The Avengers being by far, the worst of the group. The actors, outside of Downey were given next to nothing to do, the dialog was clunky and dopey and the direction awful. Mark Ruffalo was outstanding but barely even a blip on the radar and Jeremy Renner's talents were completely wasted.

I really enjoyed Ed Norton's turn as the Incredible Hulk and I'm really hoping for a version starring Mark Ruffalo, because IMO, he's the perfect Bruce Banner. I enjoyed Thor and have watched it on several occasions and am looking forward to the sequel. I like Chris Evans and the cast of Captain America but the movie was slow and somewhat dull to me.

The Dark Knight Trilogy will be difficult to "beat" because of the pure cinematic scope, cast and brilliant direction by Chris Nolan. But it doesn't surprise me that Man of Steel is seen as a flawed movie by so many (with a very low Rotten Tomatoes score to boot) because Zach Snyder is a hack. I've never liked his vision, his direction or his storytelling.

saw it last week
Yeah it was decent, but a pretty standard summer action movie

Pretty simplistic movie with action sequence leading to another action sequence. Not a cant miss by any means but pretty entertaining

Overall I give it a C+

But I was not expecting much from the guy who directed Watchmen, so I wasnt dissapointed

Same here. I think a big part of Ruffalo's Hulk being better is the fact both the Banner/Hulk characters were written more to the modern storyline. He did a perfect job of playing a more cynical and angry Banner.

I thought Thor was the sleeper of the Marvel movies. I went in expecting a C- effort and felt like I got a B+ action flick.

I guess a big reason why I did enjoy it might have been my super low expectations. Due to not really liking the character I didn't pick it apart like I would a Hulk, X-Men, or other comix flick...

See, this is my downfall in this arena: I don't have any frame of reference when it comes to these characters actions on film versus those of the comics.

So, my complaints about The Avengers, Iron Man 2, etc. don't stem from the fact that they may have strayed from, garbled or just completely ignored the source material, it comes from the film making process in and of itself.

Direction, acting, lighting, dialog, screenplay, etc. and so on. IMO, that's where Iron Man 2 and The Avengers really fail. Both films are just so unconvincing to me.
