Everything. He understands how to properly balance the more fantastical elements with a gritty story we can get into, he gets the characters and what they mean. The fight scenes and aesthetics of 300 are perfect for Batman, too.

Definitely. He just doesn't have a clue how to write them.
And? That's not his job. He's a director, not a writer. He tried writing and failed, there's nothing to hold against him anymore.

Seriously, what do people like about this guy? He's basically an artsy version of Michael Bay.
I hate comments like this. Just because he's not some indie pseudo-deep director doesn't mean he's a Bay clone. Snyder understands these characters and is a fan at heart, and it shows in his work. His movies are essentially big budget fan films, and I love him for that.
