Should Warner Bros Have Waited To Ask Zack Snyder Back?

This weekend, Man Of Steel will hit theaters. Given its generally positive reviews and the usual excitement that comes with big budget superhero movies, early estimates indicate it could open to a huge weekend approaching one hundred million dollars. Given how much studio executives love sequels, it’s not surprising the studio is already considering making a second round, but it is surprising that they’ve already commissioned director Zack Snyder to start working on it immediately.
Over the years, Snyder’s style has proven to be very much an acquired taste. There are some who love the way he paces his movies and shoots action sequences, and there are others who don’t really understand what all the fuss is about. Maybe audiences will show up to the first new Superman flick in awhile this weekend and absolutely love it. Maybe they’ll be a little more reserved. Who knows? Until the studio gets that reaction, however, it’s impossible for executives to know how word of mouth will be, and therefore, impossible to know whether fans would be excited about the same team working on the next installment.
I get why Warner Bros would want to move as quickly as possible. If Man Of Steel goes over well, executives are going to want the follow-up to hit theaters sooner rather than later. That being said, I still can’t help but think it might be a foolish decision to commit to Snyder before we even know if fans like his movie.
