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 "obvious" intent (minus ''[[WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheGuardiansTheOwlsOfGaHoole Legend of the Guardians]]'').

Generally is making a point about something...[[DoingItForTheArt nobody knows]] [[Film/SuckerPunch for sure though]].

His biggest directorial challenge to date undoubtedly lies in the form of the ''Film/{{Superman}}'' reboot, ''Film/ManOfSteel''.
