Monday film news update: Superman 2012

You may have already read the first of my weekly film news posts, and i wanted to leave it there, but with news this fresh, who can resist a quick update? According to a new press release, Zack Snyder has been confirmed as the director of the Superman: Man of Steel 2012 project, with Christopher Nolan as an executive producer. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this, as Nolan and Snyder have distinctly different approaches to adapting comic-book heroes in cinema - Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were darkly psychological investigations into the inner workings of the iconic characters; Snyders adaptation of Watchmen was visually bold and technically wonderful, but left out large chunks of important narrative and managed to offend Alan Moore himself. Perhaps this will be a dream team of dedicated enthusiasts, but i remain unconvinced by this decision - only time will tell.
