Zack Snyder Officially Set For "Superman"
“300” and “Watchmen” helmer Zack Snyder has been chosen to direct the relaunch of the “Superman” film franchise as Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures reports the trades.

Negotiations kicked off earlier today with Snyder who beat out the rumoured likes of Ben Affleck, Darren Aronofsky, Matt Reeves, Tony Scott and Robert Zemeckis for the gig.

General Zod is being rumoured to play the villain in the project which “The Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan will serve as producer on, while David Goyer (“Batman Begins”) is penning the script.

Emma Thomas, Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder will also produce. The project is moving quick as the studio has to be in production by next year or risk losing select copyrights to the heirs of the character’s creators.

Snyder and Nolan have apparently already been in discussions and while some further script work is in the immediate future, expect this one to ramp up fast.

One possibility already shot down though is Brandon Routh returning as the Man of Steel. Snyder tells Variety that the chances of the “Superman Returns” star coming back into the fold are “unlikely” as “we’re looking in another direction”.
