December 1, 2010: Snyder Given Free Reign Over Superman?

Superman Movie News HitFix.com attended the Warner Bros. celebration for the DVD and Blu-ray release of "Inception" on Tuesday evening in Hollywood, and managed to grab some time with Christopher Nolan's wife and collaborator Emma Thomas to ask her a few questions.

    Thomas said Nolan is so single minded when making a picture it's hard to get him to work on anything else. And she made it clear that in the case of "Superman," Nolan and David Goyer just had an idea they couldn't believe wasn't being explored by Warner Bros. And with Zack Snyder now on board as director, Nolan will be busy making "The Dark Knight Rises" and "we are handing it off to him." So, take note anyone out there thinking this will be a strange Nolan/Snyder partnership. Thomas reiterated that they brought it to an appropriate screenplay and it's now Snyder's picture.

So it appears that Nolan will not have any further creative input into "Superman" beyond the script he and David Goyer now leave in Zack Snyder's hands.
