Personal Quote:

[promoting Watchmen (2009) and before he was hired for Man of Steel (2013)] In this world, if Superman really existed, he'd grab all the world leaders together in a room and say, 'Behave or I'll kill you.' See more »


Was interested in directing X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) but later turned it down, because he was too busy working on Watchmen (2009). See more »


Often speeds-up and slows-down motion during action sequences (300 (2006), Watchmen (2009)). See more »
