It's weird, I've been a Snyder fan since 300, but when his name was in the running for MOS directors I was more against it than for it. I just thought it'd be too dark and stylised.
TBH it wasn't until that one interview with him when he talked about Superman being probably the only movie that he'd ironically like to approach in a world of reality rather than something stylised, that I started to feel he was a comfortable fit. The way he talked about it just reassured me he understood what this reboot needs to be.
And since then, seeing the footage (still beautiful, but like a watercolour rather than a pastel painting if you know what I mean), has only reinforced my faith
