The Dark Knight director is producing Kal-El's upcoming movie and he says director Zack Snyder is absolutely the right man for Superman's cinematic return. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Nolan says Snyder's experience proves he can handle the task at hand.
Zack was the perfect man to take this on; he is unbelievably skilled at creating a coherent, cohesive world. Whether it’s a very stylized world, like 300, or something that’s more challenging, more varied, like he did with Watchmen,
The fan favorite director also says he believes creating Superman's universe is a more demanding obstacle than creating Bruce Wayne's. Why? Simply because of the challenges that come with a superpowered character.
“In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far more difficult than creating the world of the Dark Knight. He has a lot of finishing to do on the movie -- it has a very long post-production schedule because, unlike Batman, Superman flies"
While Nolan is only producing Man of Steel, he claims it's a franchise that he wouldn't know how to handle.
I actually feel guilty talking about it because I’m sitting here having nothing to do to it. I try to be as supportive as I can, and I’m just amazed by what he is doing. It’s not something I would know how to do.
