Robert Zemeckis Said No to Directing "Superman?" Sour Grapes? 

We all know by now that Zack Snyder is going to direct the brand new "Superman" movie from producer Christopher Nolan.

We also knew about the array of directors being talked about to helm the Man of Steel film such as Darren Aronofsky (my personal choice), Tony Scott, Matt Reeves, Jonathan Liebesman, and Duncan Jones (See Who Wants to be the Next "Superman" director? Darren Aronofsky Maybe?).

But what we didn't know was that Robert Zemeckis was also once upon a time listed as one of the hopefuls. So when MTV News asked the "Back of the Future" director, he downplayed his rumor involvement. Of course!

His answer? "I passed on that faster than a speeding bullet." But obviously, he wasn't more powerful than a locomotive, er, Snyder to get the director part.

Zemeckis further elaborated, "When they asked if I wanted to make the, what is it, seventeenth version of 'Superman,' I said, 'No, I don't think so."
