A film director (born 1 March 1966) known for an apparent love for SlowMotion shots, stylized, {{Color Wash}}ed 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 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 launching the Creator/WarnerBros[=/=]Creator/DCComics [[DuelingMovies answer to the]] Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse - a setting called the Film/DCExtendedUniverse (which is also referred to as the ''Justice League Universe'' in some promotional avenues, or the "Snyderverse" by people within Warner Brothers). The endeavor began with a ContinuityReboot of Franchise/{{Superman}}, ''Film/ManOfSteel'', followed by a sequel reintroducing Franchise/{{Batman}} (itself a continuity reboot following ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy'') into the setting, ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. A ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' film will follow. He and his wife, Deborah, are producing the vast majority of DC's current films. Following ''Justice League'', Creator/GeoffJohns will help handle creative control of the franchise as Zack Snyder plans work on other projects.
