Director Zack Snyder is trying to promote his upcoming Sucker Punch movie, but can't escape questions about his next project, Superman: The Man of Steel. Snyder recently revealed that his Superman will take that approach that "there’s been no other [Superman] movies" before it, an idea which may have been born from Snyder's perspective that the Superman franchise needs to be fixed. When talking with HollywoodOutbreak, Snyder revealed that, as a movie franchise, Superman is "broken."

I think Superman is broken and needs to be fixed, from a movie standpoint. He is the frickin' biggest superhero on the planet, he is the why of all superheroes, the father of every superhero.
Like, we were just talking about this: I'm like, really, Thor? Thor has a movie? Like, really? And there's no Superman movie? It's like the world is out of balance. It's like we lost our minds here people, come on.
It's obvious to anyone who has seen the genre-blending still images, teaser clips, or trailer for Sucker Punch that director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) has another visually stunning action movie on his hands. But, ingenue action heroes with super powers? Super-sized samurai warriors? Giant robots with bunny faces? Just what the heck is going on? Something of a plot can be gleaned from the various synopses that have turned up online, but many questions remain. Fortunately, a new Sucker Punch featurette has just been released that sheds some light on what's going down at the creepy Lennox House asylum and why Babydoll (Emily Browning) and her cohorts are such badasses. Says Snyder:

Sucker Punch is a movie about the lengths we're willing to go to, in our minds, to deal with a situation.
Even though the announcement that Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) will be directing the new Christopher Nolan-produced Superman movie has squelched the debate about who will be at the helm, that has barely made a dent in the number of rumors about the movie that continue to circulate on the internet. Fans are speculating about and debating everything from which actor will land the title role; to which of the Man of Steel's rogues gallery of villains will be making an appearance; to whether Superman: The Man of Steel is a prequel, a sequel or a remake of Superman Returns. While we're unlikely to get the answers to all of those questions any time soon, Snyder has confirmed that The Man of Steel will not be linked to previous movies. what did snyder say about The Man of Steel? >> Posted 10.17.10 by BrentJS
One of the movies that received the biggest boost at this year's Comic-Con was director Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch, which surprised the audience with an action-packed teaser trailer full of martial arts battles, guns, sword fights and missiles used to fight dragons. Snyder, who co-wrote the original script after directing the comic book adaptations of 300 and Watchmen, told ComicBookResources that the crowd's reaction "was exactly what I would hope for," though he admits he was checking in on cast members Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, and Carla Gugino to gauge the response from a more personal angle.
"They hadn't seen the footage, either. They had no idea what they were going to see," said Snyder."They were shaking and out of their minds. That was good." Snyder says the trailer gives audiences a sense of what they can expect from the movie. MORE >> Posted 07.31.10 by Ryan
When Warner Brothers announced it wanted to convert Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch to 3-D, it seemed like a natural fit. The upcoming fantasy action movie — starring Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish and Jamie Chung as patients plotting an escape from a 1950s mental institution — has been described as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns" with a story set partly in a dream world. The only person who is not convinced that Sucker Punch should go 3-D is Snyder, who told MTV that he isn't sold on the 3-D conversion process.

There hasn't been much news about director Zack Snyder's 3-D animated adventure movie Legend of the Guardians since the trailer first debuted on ReelzChannel TV in March. The trailer was quickly followed by the release of some high-quality stills, but then everything went silent for several months. Now, Warner Bros. has released an official synopsis for this adaptation of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole children's novel series written by Kathryn Lasky, as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette with commentary from the director and his wife, executive producer Deborah Snyder.
