CHRISTOPHER Nolan has paid glowing tribute to Zack Snyder and his work on new Superman movie Man of Steel.

Nolan, who is the mastermind behind The Dark Knight franchise, serves as a producer on Man of Steel but believes the 300 director has a much tougher task with Superman than he had with Batman.

He told The Hollywood Reporter that he believes Snyder is the best man for the job of Superman, explaining: “He is unbelievably skilled at creating a coherent, cohesive world – whether it’s a very stylized world, like 300, or something that’s more challenging, more varied, like he did with Watchmen.”

And he added: “I’m just amazed by what he is doing.”

Elaborating further, Nolan – who admits his involvement in Man of Steel is more supportive than creative – said: “In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far more difficult than creating the world of the Dark Knight.

“He has a lot of finishing to do on the movie – it has a very long postproduction schedule because, unlike Batman, Superman flies.”
