A film director known for an apparent love for SlowMotion shots, stylized, [[ColorWash Color Washed]] movies and for creating almost shot-for-shot adaptations of comics. Oh, and his [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome damn gorgeous cinematography]]. Before being known for that, he directed the remake of ''Film/{{Dawn of the Dead|2004}}''. TrueArtIsIncomprehensible is his thing, as are {{Unreliable Narrator}}s and he thinks [[YouBastard you're a bastard]] for watching his movies for the "[[JustHereForGodzilla obvious]]" intent (minus ''[[WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheGuardiansTheOwlsOfGaHoole Legend of the Guardians]]''). He is generally is making a point about something in regards to action movies... [[DoingItForTheArt nobody knows]] [[Film/SuckerPunch for sure though]].

His biggest directorial challenge to date undoubtedly lies in the form of [[DuelingMovies launching DC's answer to the]] Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. The endeavor began with the ''Film/{{Superman}}'' reboot, ''Film/ManOfSteel''. While response to the film was [[BrokenBase certainly divisive]], the film was a substantial box office success, and he was signed on to direct a sequel which reintroduces Batman to film and introduces Wonder Woman, among other characters. He was also signed on to direct the ''Justice League'' movie, which will be released later (it's estimated that the film will come out in 2017 or 2018, but no dates have been announced). It's likely that the characters introduced in these movies will eventually get films of their own, but Snyder is tasked with laying down the groundwork first.
