Well, in Man of Steel, yes to an extent. But:
A) As the director, Snyder does have the power to ask Goyer to give a line a polish if he thinks needs it.
B) Good direction, both in terms of cinematography and pacing and good direction of actors, can sometimes help at least a little bit to mitigate the problem of bad dialogue. Depending on what else he has to work with and just how bad the line is, a director can sometimes get something good out of a bad line on the day. Snyder didn't really help things in this regard either.
Also, Snyder is co-writing the World's Finest movie, and he's a pretty bad writer.
