Jon Hamm may not be ready to suit up as the Man of Steel, but the behind-the-scenes players are falling into place.

Zack Snyder, the acclaimed director of 300, Watchmen and that new owl movie, has been tagged to direct the upcoming Superman reboot. The competition for the spot in the director's chair was rumored to be intense, with producer Christopher Nolan meeting with such high-profile directors as Tony Scott and Darren Aronofsky.

Bringing Snyder into the fold will definitely infuse the film with compelling visuals. Whether or not you're a fan of his previous movies, Snyder has a distinct, deep visual style—such as from his upcoming Sucker Punch, due out this spring—and that may be exactly the tone needed to keep this superhero installment memorable.

Tell us what you think? Was Zack the right choice?
