Default Re: "Joyless" ?

This is my bugbear with Snyder as a director in that he can perfectly replicate, on the surface, the tone of the material he's adapted for all but 2 of his movies to date but somehow they all lack that extra quality that made the originals stand out.

WATCHMEN, DAWN OF THE DEAD and to a lesser extent 300 were all satirical stories something you never get a sense of when redone by Zack. Making a 'darker' Superman story isn't a problem the problem is in the end when people walk away without the sense of hope a Superman story, irrespective of tone, should give.
