I am immediately reminded of the scenery and colors of Ozmandias's Antarctic lair. Definitely Snyder's.

But didn't Snyder say this would be his most realistic looking movie or something like that? So I can't base the entire movie off that one picture, but what we see is clearly very stylized. Not a single background in Nolan's, or say, Bryan Singer's comic book movies look anything like the background in our first official pic.
Actually to me this pic strangely reminds me of the machine gun sequence in SR...In fact if you were to photoshop Routh's face in Cavill's body, I'd say you could be looking at a promotional pic from "The Man of Steel" by Bryan Singer, 'cept they changed the outfit.

Snyder did say this is the first film he is going to shoot in the real world. As long as his visual flare is there. It will be beautiful.

So, it would look like the old movie if it had the old actor and the old suit?

Well, I dig the vibe I'm getting from Snyder's Superman, stylized or not.

Wasn't really much of a story. It was just a visual feast. And I was all for that...I don't believe a film needs to have a good story in order to be interesting...if it's done in a certain way. And the way Sucker Punch worked as a semi-music video really worked in that way.

Has it been officially stated if this film is going to be shot in 3D or if this is going to be a standard 2D film? All I am asking for is a simple yes or no, I don't want to start a whole pro-3D vs anti-3D war, because that can get pretty ugly.

So glad I was not disappointed with Supe's cape... I figured from the start we'd be getting an awesome cape this time, looking at how flowing the Spartans' capes were told me that.

Zack Snyder I think is one of the better directors. He knows how to make movies that look beautiful. "I don't connect with the characters" and all those other complains have to do with the material he is given. He is not writing the movie, so he does the best he can with the material that he has. Visually, I don't think there is a director today that can present images that are so stunning. His movies are beautiful. They look like a living breathing painting.

Clearly you haven't seen a Michael Mann, Spielberg, or a Terrence Malick film if you think he is the best visual artist working today. And that is just Hollywood.

I agree with both.

My only concern is, even he has a great script, will he be able to capture the emotions? I think the movie to succeed should be very emotional (not in a cheesy way).

I agree that my main problems with Zack as a director in general (the soundstage-y visuals, the flat storytelling) don't sound like they'll be problems with this film, since it's being written by the Batman Begins team and Snyder has said it's gonna be shot in the real world more than his more recent efforts. My only lingering concern is that I think he's been lacking as a director of actors, so hopefully he'll improve in that regard.

As I've said, I've loved everything I've seen and heard from this film thus far, so hopefully that will continue.

I agree, he did attempt a little of this with babydoll in suckerpunch. I do hope he does capture just that. And with this cast it shouldn't be difficult.

Maybe kevin costner gave some tips.

The thing is, Zack put so many great actors in this movie that they'll give a good performance no doubt. But a good director should be able to get great performances out of actors.

Maybe this time he will. If he doesn't well at least it will look good.

I felt a lot of emotion from 300. Especially between Butler and Headey.

Watchmen felt a bit detatched, but I always felt that was intentional.

Even though this is an opinion, I still find it absurd. If we are to limit the candidates down to "mainstream Hollywood", then sure, Zack is up there. But every director out today? Wow. I don't even think he's a likely top 20 for anyone that watches film on a regular basis and broadens their horizons past Hollywood. Zack's visuals are quite pedestrian compared to what is out there.

Oh god I suck. How could I forget 300. You're quite right. I also saw some with the disfigured guy.
