I don't think they're doubting Snyder as a director, more that they're doubting what they would allow him to do, what kind of movie to make. Superman *is* Snyder on a short leash- he has others writing the script, Nolan producing, a legacy to live up to, fan expectations. SP didn't have those things. I don't think WB are suddenly thinking the director they hired is another person. They know who they chose.


Precisely!
