Man of Steel (2013)
Given the rollercoaster ride the director’s career has been on since Watchmen, it was perhaps something of a surprise when it was announced that Snyder would be directing the much-anticipated Superman reboot. A string of other directors were reportedly considered for the role before the buck eventually stopped with Snyder who once again proved he had no fear when it came to taking on iconic characters. This time around he wasn’t alone however, as the 47-year-old has worked closely with Christopher Nolan who served as a ‘creative godfather’ after the success of his Dark Knight trilogy. The end result is still to be seen. But judging from what we’ve seen so far – and the buzz that has been coming out of Tinseltown – it looks like Snyder might be back to his best.
