I agree. Snyder and Nolan are both a good balance to have for this. I still have yet to see 300, mainly because I dont know one person personally that has anything good to say about it, but that never stopped me before so Ill check it out...one of these days. Ive seen Dawn of the Dead and Watchman, both were very good, I particularly loved Watchman right up until that horrible ending. Infact one of the biggest reasons why Watchman was good was because, aside from the ending which I really hated, it was so close to the original source material it would have been hard to screw it up. It good to fallow the comic, but when you do it THAT much its almost like cheating. So he decided to add his own original ending, and it was quite horrible. This is where Nolan and Goyer are very important. Nolan and Goyers idea of making Batman trained by TLOS was genius. It was a very creative original twist that worked out very well. Ive never heard a person complain about it, but truth be told its nothing like Batmans real origin, it just works out. They fallowed the comics in other areas though. So with Nolan and Goyer being the creative idea men, and Snyder with his great visual story telling (with the exception of the over use of slow motion, which I hope hes learned to do in moderation), this team can create something that will blow us away.
