Zack Snyder has a definite visual flair to his movies. From 300 to Watchmen to Sucker Punch, Snyder has shown himself to be a director that can capture big action on the big screen. Now, along with producer Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception) and script writer David S. Goyer, Snyder brings to the screen a remarkable and definitive vision of one of the greatest superheroes ever created. Man of Steel is the best Superman movie to date, hands down, as well as one of the best comic book movies ever made. Finally, DC gets a live action flick that measures up to the quality of Nolan’s Batman films, and with a sequel already greenlit, may have another great franchise to match Nolan’s trilogy. This is a Superman movie that is designed for the 21st century, and turns the mythos on its head just enough to make it fresh while still respecting the source material. And for those new to Superman, this is a great starting point, and long time fans will appreciate the new take on the familiar origin story.
