Zack Snyder will direct the Justice League film…

April 25th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Zack Snyder will take charge of the planned Justice League film if Man of Steel is the success story everyone is hoping and expecting.

According to Empire Magazine, via JoBlo, whether the director gets the gig depends on how successful it is commercially and critically.

“If we do, they say, Zack Snyder will be asked to direct.”

Elsewhere, Snyder himself has said that Man of Steel wasn’t necessarily created without thoughts of the broader DC Universe.

“We didn’t design the movie like Batman, but I don’t think anybody would say that you design a Superman movie as a one-off,” he said.

As for Man of Steel itself, the director confirmed that it will run 2 hours and 28 minutes.

“I have a hard time having perspective, but I have to say that it is everything that I could have hoped for. Touch wood that I am not insane, but it feels really good,” he said.

Man of Steel opens this June.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
