Will Snyder’s Superman be Another Sucker Punch?

Sucker Punch

Like many of you, I spent last weekend wondering why I saw Zack Synder’s Sucker Punch and subsequently worrying about his upcoming Superman rebootI tried to convince myself that the film really wasn’t so bad but I’d just be lying. It really seemed like the film had an attention deficit disorder. The poorly paced, terribly written script mixed with Snyder’s inability to direct had me wanting to lobtimize myself halfway through. Unfortunately, I’m not the only one who felt this way.  So, what does this mean for The Man of Steel

Theoretically we could end up with another hot mess — overproduced, underdeveloped, and lacking substance. It’s a legitimate concern, but far from certain. Even though I found myself terrified by the prospect of Synder directing another film, let alone the next Superman, he’ll be working closely with Christopher Nolan — the man responsible for saving Batman from the 90’s. After all, without him, we’d just have more of this.
