Superman Reboot Director Chosen

October 4, 2010

After months of speculation, the new Superman movie now has a director in Zack Synder.

Synder is no stranger to comic book films, having directed both 300 and Watchmen. The film is to be produced by Christopher Nolan, director of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, and written by David S. Goyer, writer of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

When asked for comment, Synder told Deadline,

“It’s early yet, but I can tell you that what David and Chris have done with the story so far definitely has given me a great insight into a way to make him feel modern. I’ve always felt he was kind of awesome. I’ll finish Sucker Punch and get right at it.”

Also several outlets are reporting that General Zod will be the villain in the film.
