And Your New SUPERMAN Is...
For those keeping track, the planned feature is a seperate entity from the Richard Donner/Bryan Singer/etc continuity; with a top-secret story by David Goyer, "overseen" by Christopher Nolan ("hey Chris, can the Superman guys borrow some of your fan-rage-proof armor?") and directed by Zack Snyder. Of all of them, it's Snyder's involvement I'm most excited for - the guy jumps in with both feet, doesn't know the meaning of "unfilmmable" and lacks the phobia of compositional-beauty that afflicts so many of his contemporaries. Plus, if it's even 1/10th as good as "Watchmen" was... damn.
Trivia: This makes "Avengers" the only 2012 American superhero movie (out of 4) without a British actor feigning an American accent in the lead - Cavill, Christian Bale and Andrew Garfield are all Brits.
