But could there be another, more reptilian, reason?
With Zack Snyder confirmed to direct Superman: Man of Steel, rumours have now started rolling in about the film’s plot details. But could it be that Snyder wasn’t chosen for his vision, but for his ability to work faster than a speeding bullet?
With Nolan meeting with directors for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Superman project, Man of Steel, the shortlist of his favoured possibilities has become public. And it sounds super!
