Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch"

Director Zack Snyder’s (Watchmen, 300) Sucker Punch shows off more of his signature style — but will it be the same style he brings to his Superman reboot?

Since news came out that Zack Snyder — who’s become known as that guy who makes the comic book movies — was going to tackle directing the Man of Steel, questions rose about whether he’d bring his usual flair to the reboot.

Titled Superman: Man of Steel, Snyder’s film has landed British actor Henry Cavill of TV’s “The Tudors.” This news arrives just as Snyder’s latest movie, Sucker Punch, is about to hit theaters.

I cannot help but link the two together.

Sucker Punch tells the story of Baby Doll (Emily Browning) who imagines herself in an alternate world to escape her own nightmare in a mental institution. It’s an action-adventure flick that has gorgeous women battling against an array of CGI-created baddies on a landscape of visual imagination. Much like his other works: style over substance.

It appears — at least from the trailers – that this movie might follow more in suit with the likes Snyder’s 300, focusing more on glorified action and violence. But, what about Superman? There’s a story to be told here, so one can only hope he leans more toward Watchmen which managed to explain a rather complicated backstory.

As for his animated feature, Legend of the Guardians, we can just forget about that one for argument’s sake.

What do you think? Is Zack Snyder a good pick for directing the next Superman movie? Or will his style-over-substance approach ruin a classic?

Sucker Punch hits theaters on March 25th.
