Zack Snyder on "Superman" Rumors and "Thor"

Zack Snyder on "Superman" Rumors and "Thor"Submit Comment
While promoting his upcoming "Sucker Punch" film, director Zack Snyder is being interrogated about his "Superman" reboot. Unfortunately, he is not able to reveal much, but was able to comment on some rumors.

About a month ago, it was reported by several credible sources that Viggo Mortensen (The Road) is at the top of the list to play General Zod. Snyder stated: "Viggo is not going to be in the movie, let's say that right now. I can clear that up."

There were also talks of Warner Bros not being able to mention the origins of Superman after a court battle with the heirs of "Superman" co-creator Jerome Siegel. Snyder stated: "We're not doing anything as far as the story goes that's influenced by any legal issue."

And it seem that Snyder's decision to bring Superman to the big screen was in part due to "Thor." He stated: "[Superman] is the freaking biggest superhero on the planet. He's the father of every superhero. Thor has a movie? Really? I mean, come on. And there's no Superman movie? This is like the world is out of balance. It's like we've lost our minds here people. Come on."

Snyder was then informed of the existence of FOUR Superman movies starring Christopher Reeve and additional Superman movie that was released in 2006. "Oh," Snyder gasped. "f*ck. Me." And without hesitation wrapped his mouth around the cold steel of a pistol and squeezed the trigger. He was 45 years old.

He wasn't exactly knocking the Thor movie, just the development hell Superman has been in for years and its struggle finding a large enough appeal for the audience Warner Bros. is so eager for.

After reading this I feel like I now know less about the movie, all these so called "credible sources" must be losing credibility fast considering every rumour I've heard on this film has turned out to be bullsh*t. Can somebody grab Snyder sucker punch him in the face then superman his hoe please for all this bullsh*t he's spreading...

Geez..come one people..He was not knocking or dissing Thor..All he is saying is that there is a movie franchise for third tier heroes like Thor beginning but we have yet to recieve a successful modern day Superman franchise..People need to stop takin sh*t so literally and read between the lines..But i guess when things get printed they come off a certain way then when u speak it..He isnt sayin nothing bad about Thor.

OBVIOUSLY he is aware of previous Supe movies including Superman Returns..which is why he said they arent following them..He was just pointing out that Superman Returns failed (though i like it) in many fans' eyes as the superman movie for our generation..We have yet to recieve OUR Superman for the new post-donner years..but it seems like we FINALLY are about to get the superman movies that we have been waiting for

That's because superman is over used! Lois and clark, 10 seasons of smallville which now he dresses like Neo, plus Singers version recently. Thats why theres a Thor movie Zack! I'm sure people will see your movie so stop trying to make it seem more important than others!

Natalie Portman isn't a negative. If anything, she's one of the few reasons to see Thor thus far.

In most films, attractive women who can act is usually not a bad thing.

Just don't spend the first half of the movie mulling over what superman's been up to or anything.
If he's this so=called father of all superheroes as Zack puts it, then this movie should go right into things with the understanding that EVERYONE seeing it knows about Supes.

Wow, you f*cking people kill me sometimes..

You hate everything and anything that comes your way, yet, Liz Taylor dies and you have the utmost respect for a f*cking valium riddled sociopathic agoraphobic dinosaur that hasn't made a credible film since literally before any one of you were even born (with the obvious exception of ranger, old as the f*cking river)

Im sorry but, even from my knowledge she was an insufferable c*nt and a drug addict. My knowledge is fairly extensive.. Of her screen work anyhow..

This site should be called Double Standards, not Worst Previews..

Liz Taylor is going to rot in hell just like the rest of old Hollywood. Rotten people living rotten f*cking lives stepping on anyone and everything in their way and f*cking and sucking their way to the top. Commend them on their screen talents but nothing more. Liz Taylor was a bloated old whore.
triggax writes:
on March 23rd, 2011 at 3:25:22 PM

She could take a hell of a picture back in the 40s though.

Lets not call her classy and dignified and beautiful though unless of course we actually know that, which we don't. What we do know is she struggled with alcohol, depression, drug addiction, divorce (several f*cking times)She was fired from numerous movie sets throughout the 40's and 50's and still didnt clean up her act well into the 1990's.

When Megan Fox dies are we all going to be talking about how f*cking classy she is, no, but she didnt have half the f*cked up problems Liz Taylor did.. Yet we all suck the proverbial d*ck of a dead woman because she was what? In Cleopatra? Give me a break.. This from the WP crowd..

Liz Taylor was the 1940's equivalent to a LoSlag/Shannen Doherty love child.

You guys are silly.
triggax writes:
on March 23rd, 2011 at 3:31:20 PM

She was also allegedly one of the most influential factors in Michael Jacksons decisions to start taking prescription drugs..

Classy f*cking lady... Doing f*cking pain killers with Michael Jackson.. (Rangers wednesday nights) All the while.. Staying oh so f*cking elegant and dignified? yeah... right... f*ck me, one of these days I swear i will never f*cking be back on this new site.. I left once Ill do it again god dammit. Get your heads out of your asses.

Heres my respects, what most of yours should sound like.

Thanks for making 6 noteworthy films and being slightly hot in the 40's, not marylin hot, more like my grandma before she was my grandma hot.. Rest in.. Peas?

What used to be an insightful place to talk to other film lovers has turned into a place for 13 year old girls to rant and bitch and complain about every thing that happens when it comes to movies..

If someone from outside the WP world took a quick look at half the f*cking comments on this site these days, the only conclusion they could possibly come to is "oh wow these retarded children really hate movies"

Liz Taylor is equivalent to a LoSlag/Shannen Doherty love child , lol

Even though your right she was a handful, A Drunk and a total Bitch at times, Who cares most stars back then were the same Mcqueen, Brando,Wayne, Heston, Sinatra and Monroe she was no angel either they were all very hard to work with, hell even Stallone was an ass hole in the 80's but he still made some good movies.

On screen in her prime her body of work is strong and she was in some very good movies. Granted not much after about 1977.

I agree on Cleopatra never did it for me either

But movies like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Who's Afraid Of Virgina Woolf, Giant ,The Comedians and Ivanhoe just off the top of my head are all good movies.

Which is a lot more than Lohan Shannon and Fox have done put together, At Least fox did look good on the back of a motorbike i guess.

I couldn't give a godddamned two-fisted monkey punch about Liz Taylor. WHat did she do for the advancement of mankind?

She's just more f*cking six-feet deep worm food, who as a walking bag of meat and bones did nothing but bask in fame and money while hitting up the drugs and getting down on her four limbs for every wealthy dude in a three mile radius.

I so f*cking hate hero worship, but hey, if you folks want to worship someone, wotship a person that's actually done a little something for the human race.

"This site should be called Double Standards, not Worst Previews.."

Should be called a lot of things Trig, none of them good.

Anyway, as you're one of the few intelligent people here, it would be something of a loss if you didn't return, Trig, but I ain't your mammy and I won't play up to drama queens, so if you go that's your decision, though it would be, as I already stated, a loss.

But hey, here's a nickle to make you feel better. Go buy yourself a better moniker and avatar.

"hating news because YOU THINK they are sh*tty don't make it so"

That's the stupidest thing I've ever read.

They're sh*tty if I say they're sh*tty. Why? Because the state of sh*ttiness isn't absolute moron, it's subjective.

"God complex works well on the internet but it's not a real."

Because I often confuse the two, like you, right?

And if I did have the power of God, I'd reboot this tired f*cking planet back the to the dinosaurs. At least then there was far less *ssholes.

Someone should explain that the Thor comic character is based on a mythological figure that not only predates Superman but a thousand some odd years, but is also much cooler, being of Viking origins and all.

Your mistake, oh prepubescent longer of the zombie apocalypse (you'd sh*t your paints if you saw even roadkill, I bet, rolling eyes here) is to assume I do give as sh*t, when I've explicitly said I do not.

@Mink,

Ill probably stick around for my bi-weekly irrelevant posts..

At this point with the amount of unintelligent retarded comments on this site, putting up a comment really is like throwing food to a homeless person.

@Trailer..

77? how f*cking old are you? not that 77 is old, BUT... What was in 1977 for Liz Taylor? A Little Night Music? Oh my jeesus, and if thats what it is.. my friend you have a particular taste. I could only imagine that youre either 200 and have been following her career from day 1. Or you've confused her for Sophia Loren..

Either way.. Her last decent film was Virgina Woolf and I can f*cking assure you that film was not great because of Liz Taylor. That was all Richard Burton my friend.

As far as McQueen, Brando, Hudson... f*ck even Humphrey Bogart was a raging abusive alcoholic.. with an addiction to synthetic morphine..

....So what singles these guys out from Liz Taylor?... Well.. Number one they didn't suck off a 55 year old Harold Young in order to star in their first film at the tender age of what? 16? 17? Fueled by a raging teenage vagina and a mouth that could suck the chrome off my truck hitch.. This is what singles her out.. she not only was a drug addict and a useless c*nt she was also a succubus that destroyed Richard Burtons life..

Marlon Brando wouldn't even work with Liz Taylor...

So, sure, mcqueen, brando.. they all had their problems but they definitely did a lot more for the progression of american cinema than f*cking Liz Taylor..

I could argue that there are few true Silver Screen actors that can be called legends, I would hope that most of us could agree that Paul Newman did it with total f*cking class and dignity.

Paul Newmans final acting role? Road to Perdition.

Liz Taylor... The f*cking Flintstones movie. Point made. This old hag needs absolutely none of my sympathy and I find it strange that out of the bulk of you c*nts she is getting any at all..

Word.

My vote is for James Stewart TBH. I just loved the way he carried himself and talked and Rear Wndow is one of my favorite flicks, mostly because the excellent soundstage set design.

"I would hope that most of us could agree that Paul Newman did it with total f*cking class and dignity."

Like the 1966 Corvette, they just don't make them like that any more. Hell, they don't make them like Harrison Ford anymore. Instead, we have Shia and Taters.

Ah, The Sting, one of Newman's finest and more popular flicks.

"At this point with the amount of unintelligent retarded comments on this site, putting up a comment really is like throwing food to a homeless person."

I hardly even bother. I just wait to say something sarcastic and utterly pointless, really. Mausing myself is about all my apathy can muster.

Came on here one day a way back and made like twenty rather good, solid long posts, and not one person had anything to say. None of them were critical, 'negative' or even bitching, ut it was like, oh f*ck, something substantial, well hell, let's move right along to the next Lohan/fart joke.

Pointed out something relevant on that new Jake Gyllenhaal flick...nothing.

I can only imagine what sort of response I would get if I went full-brain on here, but I can't even do 10% anymore.

You have to either make a joke funny to five year olds, or you have to get into a discussion where you trade your favorite flicks like children swapping baseball cards back in the 50's.

Genuine film discussion? Pfffftttt.

Back to the topic at hand.

Regardless of what all of you hating fools say. The team behind this gem are the same people that brought you your beloved "inception" and new "Dark Knight" series. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy the films. You f*cking idiots go into absolutely no detail as to why Snyder f*cked anything up? As far as what i've seen from Snyder, is that he lacks a certain substance, but makes up for it with sticking to his guns as far as source material and having quite the unique and individual style... this day and age thats staying power.. Look at how long it took for Ben Affleck to prove he could write a decent movie AND direct it.

Dont knock it til you've tried it.

Especially on this site. Spooky cupcakes is a prime example of total retardation associated to the members of WP.. Hypocrisy runs strong here. Its like Fox News for Movies.. Which is funny because Fox news has always reminded me of a refugee camp for dirty men.

Avatar is another perfect example. Search for avatar news feeds on WP from before the film came out. THEN check out the user reviews afterward. Every single person magically changed their mind. How about that...

The same will be said with this film. The team behind it will probably have a hard time making this anything but awesome. It may not be The Dark Knight, but I can probably almost guarantee you we're in for a treat to the eyes and possibly something we haven't seen for Superman Since Donner ALMOST got it right in the 70s.

So shut your f*cking wind flaps and until you have something constructive to say about the film keep it to your f*cking self.

AS WE ALL KNOW YOULL BE FIRST IN LINE TO SEE THIS f*ckING MOVIE AND IM SURE YOULL BE WEARING THOSE STUPID 3D GLASSES WITH ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS SO SHUT THE FRONT DOOR AND KEEP FROM PUTTING YOUR f*ckING FOOT IN YOUR MOUTH. HATING A MOVIE IN PRE PRODUCTION DOES NOT MAKE YOU COOL. NOT LIKE CHRIS NOLAN DOES NOT MAKE YOU COOLER THAN THE PEOPLE THAT LIKE HIM.

STFU STFU STFU.

I tried to read Watchman, that twelve part abortion... the guy should've done political cartoons instead, you know, the one's where Obama's head looks like an pineapple and he's using the Statue of Liberty as a suppository or something.

Caricatures. Something like that, because Watchmen was a poorply drawn far-left commentary superfically painted over with a water thin patina of bullsh*t comic clothing (mixing and mangling metaphors here).

And the film, Snyder's chef-d'oeuvre, was a callow, hollow heap of unwatchable horsesh*t.

Trig -

Paul Newman is The Greatest movie star on and off screen of all time IMO the guy was a class act and i doubt anyone who met him and worked with would have a bad word to say about the him.

He was a rare star indeed staying married for over 50 years to Joanne Woodward no real scandal did so much for charity and kept making good films right up until his death, only Eastwood can compare to Newman in my opinion and it's a shame they never worked together.

On Liz i just like old school Hollywood and she was a big part of that good or bad.

Richard Burton (who did work with eastwood) is one of my favorite actors which is one of the reasons i watched some of her films in the first place years ago.

As a person i don't know that much about her really i just liked some of her movies, But Burton did go back for seconds didn't he.

And I said 1977 just from memory i thought the Comedians was mid 70's but it was earlier than that.

Can't argue with the Flintstones, passing gallstones would be more fun than watching that movie.

@minkowski

You've got a point.

But these days, the attention span has shortened and even I'm guilty for throwing the Lovag or Tanning Chatum joke out there because I can't stand some of the movies I have been subjugated to with constant lambasting of schlocky ads.

Case in point : I finally saw MicMacs recently. It didn't have TV ad after TV ad, like some bad Will Ferrell piece. And I liked it. Liked an older movie too called My Name Is Nobody.

Then recently I rented Knight & Day and Salt. Both of them ? Pretty f*cking forgettable and interchangable.

I mean, with Salt, what the f*ck ? They immediately go after Evelyn and try to track her down after one f*cking interview of some Russian guy, who goes into this building and knows for a fact it's a CIA locale, even though the outside shows a cover business ?

It f*cking lost me there and it was so bad, I didn't even bother with the " Making Of ... "

Speaking of Paul Newman, I like Cool Hand Luke, which is a given. But I also like The Verdict. It has some of the best dialogue pre Tarantino that the 80's had to offer.

See ? I can bring up a conversation with deep aspects, but with this place it's too easy to dismiss the work of anyone because of the personal flaws they have outside of their careers that make for easy fodder.

Anyway, there's my two cents.

The problem with Superman is that he doesn't have anything that can correlate with modern social aspects.

He may be one of the first superheroes created to deal with issues outside the world of comics, but his relevance really is
outdated.

That is why they always try to bring up the whole Batman Begins thought to bringing a darker spin to Clark Kent/Kal El ... because his background is almost archaic to even Bruce Wayne, which remains relevant even today.

I have to disagree Triggax with yuor appraisal of the new Superman.

To be honest, the guy is pretty much a bore, even in his best graphic novels, and even though I'm a fan of the comics, he's only stellar, no pun intended, when he plays off of Batman in those annual publications in which they team up. Only then.

I just finished War of the Supermen, and it was terrible. Just terrible. General Lane blows up New Krypton, which was created from the Bottle City of Kandor, which was stolen by Brainiac. General Zod invades earth, people die, things explode and the entire time, Superman is essentially picking his super nose. Hell, Lois Lane does more than him.

And let's face it, what made Donner's original film was the actors therein played by Reeves and Kidder, who brought heart and humanity to a screenplay that was in touch with the finer and better aspects of what makes us all human, but man, those days are passed, and most films nowadays lack the charm and grace of films long ago, instead substituting anti-social tendencies, cynicism and anger for what makes us decent good people.

Look, even in the first Donner film, Kidder's Lois was a bit bitchy, but she was till human underneath and vulnerable, but in Singer's version of Lane, played by Bosworth, the character is all steel and hate and she's angry and absolutely unlikeable.

Vastly different take on the character IMO, even if she resembles Kidder's take superficially, and that alone alienated me from the film immediately.

But the thing is here, really, that I just don't know how well a Superman film will look and feel going on visuals alone, Snyder's one and only strength, and unless the film has copious amounts of likeable characters and plenty of stand-out action, I just can't see it joining my all-time favorite film list.

Sorry.

I wont lay claim to being nearly as big of a comic geek as I am a film geek. I will tell you though, that I personally enjoyed the Watchmen film far more than the Graphic Novel. I sat down to read Watchmen for the first time nearly 20 years ago.. Possibly even longer...

Guess what? I still havent finished it. I do not agree with that commy bastard is probably the most specific reason I can give for not reading Watchmen.

Which is odd, you being a black dude, and all the flack coming from these gutless white kids you don't know sh*t about history or the origin of civil liberties.

They just blindly repeat the sh*t they've hear someone else say and they think it makes them 'morally superior' people. Like some FOXnews talking head.

But no, I ddon't agree with segregation, here or abroad, but I try t understand where things like that come from without deomnizing all involved. Same thing goes with the Holocaust, which I hardly 'approve' of either.

I'd rather live in a perfect happy world where we all get along, but like the response Blade gave the little girl when she asked him "why can't you just be nice": because the world isn't nice.

Although I do agree that Superman is a boring Character to a certain degree, he is after all still Superman and I will always hold out hope for him being adapted for a new generation of film makers and goers...

As far as Donners version. You are correct, but when did I ever lay claim to the fact that Henry Cavill would even make a decent superman? As well as not knowing who is playing Lois Lane? if anyone? Ive heard rumors of actors like Daniel Day Lewis.. which if true might bring quite a bit to the table.

Loook all Im saying is im not going to sh*t on this until I see a finished product.
Im not going to end up like every f*cking member of this board and end up sounding like a moron.

I do believe in a solid story being created by the writing and production team behind this picture. If Snyder can pull it off, IMO is up to interpretation upon its release.

Donners version, for me, is at the moment the best Superman out there, I would actually argue the Superman 2 donners cut. Was far better than the first superman film. But thats me.. I dont need everything to be the godfather, sometimes the more explosions there are the happier I am..

Im as smart as I can be until the stupidity comes out. Kind of a thing.. im sure you understand.

As much as I'd like to take a dig at Zach, the reason I don't care much for this is because with Donner's Superman, it was at the time when storytelling and scriptwriters really took storytelling very seriously, due to the lack of special effects that couldn't be done without practical effects.

Now that we have this incredible CGI, and with Snyder's wavy track record, I don't want this to be a special effects, constant slo-mo, crappy Kim Kardashian-style of movie.

Yeah, that didn't track with me either. I think the screenwriter was counting on the audience being as ignorant of CIA protocol as he was.

"The problem with Superman is that he doesn't have anything that can correlate with modern social aspects."

True, true, because he was invented long before Marvel and others went the socially relevant route, tieing in minority rights and whatnot to comic themes and characters, long before this was a comic trend

(today the trend is almost unbearably stifling...some times they spend three pages smacking lips on why Batman cannot kill someone, or why even the thought is the highest crime...)

Superman is a man-god, and he's all strength and all ability and he's fairly shallow and basically a plot vehicle. What Superman can do and not why, things like that, and that's where a film should go. We don't need or care to see him doing the X-men routine. Just get up and show s why you are super, more super than all the rest because if you cannot, you're forgettable and worthless. Find your humanity and play love triangle with Lois some other day.

"Guess what? I still havent finished it. I do not agree with that commy bastard is probably the most specific reason I can give for not reading Watchmen."

Same here. But the story was just beyond me, not that it was complex, but that he just made the series more about his personal beliefs and less about what superheroes could and would do under those circ*mstances.

That and he's a dreary writer.

This is a large enough reasons as to why I don't post here anymore. I'll come here and check to see what's new and see who commented and stuff. But that's it, reading the posts here now is just so incredibly stupid and unintelligent. I'd feel its a waste of time to even post or argue anything anymore.

This site isn't what it used to be. Alex will delete any post randomly. He went on a censorship trend and that just pissed me off even more because it just ruined freedom of speech around here and it made me posting here.

I think that's why a lot of the original members of Worstpreviews like myself, Ranger, Minkowski, Spooky, Triggax, etc. Just sort of went off the deep end. People just became stupid on here and news became almost worthless.

Bottom line is Worstpreviews is not Worstpreviews as it was when it first started....

As for the article itself? I could give a sh*t less about what Zack think of Thor. I just think he should be focusing on not screwing up the Superman Reboot.

Remember Zack....Nolan's watching you...Wherever you go!

@ Mink I miss the good old days where there were lengthy uncensored posts on here about what we think and feel about a certain film project and actually had a heated but intelligent conversation.

Besides I still talk to Spooky sometimes. He's still around, I got him on Facebook & Windows Live. We'll have a decent conversation. He left because of the same reasons any of us stopped posting here. Was because things just started getting incredibly stupid and dull around here.

@ Trig, though I think I have to agree with Mink on this one though, I think it would be the same chain of event if it were reverse. If you look at today's society and look back on History. We repeat the same mistakes over and over again on a lot of things. There's some things that we may never learn to resolve or stop doing. There's so many laws and regulations these days and MONEY is the huge important issue among society that we're forgetting the things that are important. It's only a matter of time when what goes up, goes down. Same thing happens to an erection!

@ minkowski:

I appreciate the recognition.

Honestly, I wish I did post more often on here. The truth of the matter, though, is that I've found it increasingly difficult in the last year or so to contribute any sentiment of real substance (like I once could), what with the unshakable responsibilities of my work and my family. Though I so often derive enjoyment from the threads developed by WP users, such as yourself or Max or Ranger or NMM or a few others I'm forgetting, and would love to join in more discussions more often, what complicates my involvement on this site is that I enjoy leaving long posts (as you can clearly see by this and numerous past examples). Furthermore, I am prone to extensive ranting online and, worse yet, I am an incredibly slow writer, which, consequently, inhibits me from being my most, for lack of a better word, productive self during the vital daytime hours, as would please the members of my aforementioned workplace and household. I can't exactly shirk my obligations to them, so I have been forced to limit the length of my expression on this entertaining online outlet. It bums me out big time, but when the opportunity emerges for me to post something of value on WP (as it has tonight), I seize it.

Additionally, as you and Triggax have expressed numerous times already on this and other threads, there has been no shortage of pinheads to join this site in the last couple years and muck things up for the rest of us. Now, I'm not naming names (though I would be remiss, Triggax, if I didn't admit that I laughed hard in affirmation at your mention of that pusillanimous stooge, Spooky Cupcakes), but I don't believe this site really lives up to the standards that it once did before I joined and shortly thereafter (if there ever were standards then, I mean). There used to be more thought-provoking discussions back then, conversations that vigorously stimulated my mind and, at times, inspired me to look at certain films in a whole new light. Why, I can even remember a time when you and I didn't see eye to eye on a number of subjects here at WP (arguments over "X-Men 3" still linger in my memory). We had quite a few tiffs, I remember, but to be frank, I'm thankful for them as you have proven yourself time and time again to be a good debater and kept me on my toes. Such challenges are awfully hard to come by, you know. Even if I don't agree with the point you're making, I still have to marvel at the biting witticisms you make and the level of detailed research you apply to expressing yourself. And your insults, no matter how astringent they may be (not that I'm complaining), are composed with a level of class rarely witnessed on most social media domains. I'm not kissing your ass here, your comments are hugely fun to read (yours too, Trig, if you're reading this - comment on this site more). Keep leaving them, as they are some of the high notes of WP (both then and now.)

Again, I thank you for the recognition. If at all possible, I will try my best in the coming months to log on here more and leave more posts.

(And by the way, your disparaging comments on the "Atlas Shrugged" article a few weeks back literally brought me to tears. Too hysterical. Keep churning out the funny.)
