Rumors are spreading fast that director Zack Snyder has visited Avatar's special effects HQ, as he is prepping his version of Superman to be fully CG. Movienewz is reporting that the director "has plans to rely heavily on CGI for the Man of Steel."
Would this mean Superman [also rumored to be Watchmen's Matthew Goode] would be made in the same vein as 300 with complete CG environments?. IGN state:"We at IGN have been hearing talk of a CG-enhanced Superman as well. In fact, our sources claim that Snyder stopped by to meet with the effects folks behind Avatar recently to check out their techniques, which kind of/sort of suggests that he's interested in Avatar-izing his Man of Steel." Seeing as how everyone is complaining about Hal Jordan/ Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern CG suit we're not sure how the public or fan-base are going to react to this story which may not even be true. Snyder's latest film, Sucker Punch is almost all entirely green-screened and he's known for applying the latest technology to all of this films. So while the rumor is odd, it's not unbelievable. People were initially sceptical with the announcement that 300 would be created using only digital environments, but that withstood the critics.
