very few fan choices for CBM directors ever hold my attention, but Joseph Kosinski directing an extremely earnest Superman movie would be perhaps the most fitting decision out there

The tone for maverick is exactly the tone that supposedly would work for a classic superman. Then when you take into account his experience in filming flight scenes, and baring in mind he’s a strong visualist… This is quite clearly the best option after Zack Snyder
