Zack Snyder (born 1.3.1966)
Zack Snyder is an American film producer and screenwriter
Zack Snyder: Childhood
Zack Snyder was raised in Greenwich, Connecticut, though he was originally born in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
After graduating from high school, Snyder attended Heatherley School of Fine Art in England and then later studied at the Art Centre College of Design in California. In California, Snyder counted the artists Tarsem Singh (the music video director) and Michael Bay (the director of Pearl Harbor) amongst his fellow students.
Zack Snyder: Film Career
Zack Snyder directed a number of commercials for large multinational corporations, such as Nissan, Audi, BMW, Nike and Reebok. An advert that he directed for Jeep won him a Gold Lion Award.
His debut feature film came in 2004 with the remake of George Romero's Dawn of the Dead. The film starred Ving Rhames and Sarah Polley and was highly regarded among horror movie fans and three years later, Snyder released 300, which was based on Frank Miller's graphic novel series of the same name. The film starred Gerard Butler and Rodrigo Santoro.
In 2009, Snyder's highly anticipated adaptation of Watchmen, also originally by Frank Miller, was released. On the first day of its release, the film grossed over $25 million. Among the stars of the film are Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode and Sally Jupiter. The film has been the subject of some controversy, as Miller himself refused to have any involvement in the making of the film, whereas he was the executive producer on 300. Also, Warner Brothers have attempted to market Snyder as a legendary visionary producer. It has been reported that Snyder himself finds this uncomfortable, given his relative inexperience in film-making.
After completing Watchmen, Snyder began working on a new project entitled Guardians of Ga'Hoole, which will star Amanda Seyfried and was co-written by Steve Shibuya. He has also started work on W.I.T.C.H The Movie, another graphic novel adaptation, due for release in 2010 and Sucker Punch, due for release in 2011.
Zack Snyder: Personal Life
Zack Snyder lives in Pasadena, California, where he attended art college, with his wife and six children.

'Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice' makes an adversary of everyone.
Next year is taking comic books to a new level. No longer are the lines between heroes and villains solid. Now we're seeing a new side to our favourite caped crusaders; Marvel's Captain America may be bringing about a civil war, but that's nothing compared to the battle between DC's Batman and Superman in 'Dawn Of Justice'.
Henry Cavill reprises his role as Clark Kent
The new trailer sees an evermore intensifying hostility between the two vigilantes: on the one side you've got a billionaire human being named Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) who's disillusioned with what Gotham City has become and determined to fight crime in his own way, and on the other you've got an alien journalist named Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) with supernatural powers who's rather more modest when it comes to his own crime-fighting practices.
What happens when two superheroes with vastly differing opinions come head to head? Well, not very well if Lex Luthor has anything to do with it. Superman believes Batman is a vigilante and the civil liberties of the people of Gotham are 'being trampled on' whilst Batman feels Superman's abilities are blown out of proportion by the media and is far from a fan of his superhero outfit.
Lex Luthor has enough power to manipulate this situation to his benefit and pitches both heroes against one another - Son of Krypton versus Bat of Gotham however, when his plan doesn't go exactly to plan he creates a monster to destroy both men - on the verge of destruction, Batman and Superman are joined by Wonder Woman, Aquaman and other superheroes on their quest to save their city from destruction.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder and it's a precursor to The Justice League films - which are also written and directed by Snyder.

Zack Snyder and HBO are in talks to develop a ‘Watchmen’ series.
Zack Snyder is reportedly in talks with HBO to develop a Watchmen television series. The director has previously turned his hand to adapting the comic book series, written and drawn by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, in the 2009 film of the same name. Talks have reportedly taken place between Snyder and HBO about the possibility of adapting the series but nothing has been confirmed as yet.

'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' director Zack Snyder has blasted movies like 'Ant-Man', describing them as the ''flavour of the week''.
Zack Snyder thinks 'Ant-Man' is merely the ''flavour of the week''.
The 49-year-old director - who's helming the much-hyped 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' - has claimed the superheros in his movie have a timeless quality that few other comic book characters can boast.
Asked about Steven Spielberg's suggestion that ''there will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the Western'', Zack said: ''I feel like he's right. But I feel like Batman and Superman are transcendent of superhero movies in a way, because they're Batman and Superman.

Revered Comic Book Writer Grant Morrison Is Not A Fan Of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman Creation And Fears The Superheroine's Creator Would Hate What She's About To Become On The Big Screen.
Morrison tells Nerdist.com he can understand what Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder is doing with the Amazonian goddess, but her comic book 'father' William Marston would not appreciate her violent side.
Morrison, who is currently working on the book series Wonder Woman: Earth One, says, "That's not what William Marston wanted, that's not what he wanted at all! His original concept for Wonder Woman was an answer to comics that he thought were filled with images of blood-curdling masculinity.
"You see the latest shots of Gal Gadot in costume, and it's all sword and shield and her snarling at the camera. Marston's Diana was a doctor, a healer, a scientist."
Clark Kent is a reporter for the Daily Planet in his everyday life, but a much hated alien powerhouse beneath the earthly guise. As Superman he has the power to destroy the world and, even though he would never dream of it, the world wants him gone. Even his efforts to become the ultimate hero go unappreciated, in particular by his Gotham rival Bruce Wayne; a billionaire vigilante known as Batman by night. He believes Superman is to blame for all the horror the Earth has been faced with, and vows to take him despite his limited abilities. It isn't long before the two are forced to unite, however, in order to protect the citizens of Earth from a real threat that could prove to thrust the planet into oblivion.
Grant Morrison thinks Zack Snyder's version of Wonder Woman betrays the character's roots.
Comic book writer Grant Morrison thinks Zack Snyder's version of Wonder Woman betrays the character's roots.
Grant, 55, is currently writing his graphic novel 'Wonder Woman: Earth One' and said he didn't want to do the ''warrior woman thing'' with the character, like the Snyder-directed 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' movie appears set to do.
He told Nerdist: ''I can understand why they're doing it, I get all that, but that's not what [Wonder Woman creator] William Marston wanted, that's not what he wanted at all! ...

A new full length trailer for the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice has just hit online, offering fans their best look yet at the upcoming clash between the two comic book titans. Debuting at Comic Con this weekend the trailer was well received by fans who found plenty to talk about including Jesse Eisenberg's menacing Lex Luthor.
The nearly four minute trailer showcases Ben Affleck's Batman and Henry Cavill's Superman, while also heavily featuring Eisenberg as the villainous Luther. It also offers our first real look at Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jeremy Irons as butler Alfred Pennyworth, while also including Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
Ben Affleck Received An Invaluable Tip About Playing Batman From Fellow Superhero Actor Christian Bale, Who Advised Him To Make Sure The Famous Outfit Did Not Affect His Bathroom Visits.
Affleck made his first public appearance since announcing his split from wife Jennifer Garner by attending the DC Comics panel at Comic-Con in San Diego, California on Saturday (11Jul15) to promote the highly-anticipated Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, in which he stars as the Caped Crusader.
He joined co-stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Jesse Eisenberg to debut new footage from the Man of Steel sequel, and during the chat, Affleck told fans he had bumped into Bale at a costume store in Los Angeles and the former Batman star offered up a helpful piece of advice.
Affleck said, "It was pretty empty, and I was in the aisle and I hear, 'Oi...' I turned around and it's Christian Bale. And there he and I are standing in the Batman costume (aisle). I said, 'Look man, you know, you're the best. Like, what do you think? You got any tips?' He says, 'Make sure you can p**s through that suit.'"
