‘Man of Steel’ director Zack Snyder set for Film Festival to talk Superman and zombies

The Hero Complex Film Festival takes place May 18 thru 21 at the Regal Cinemas at Los Angeles. The Festival has just announced that director Zack Snyder (“300,” “Watchman,”) and Robert Kirkman, the creator of “The Walking Dead” will be headlining the event.

Snyder directed the 2004 “Dawn of the Dead” remake and will be alongside Kirkman to “discuss, celebrate and debate zombies and a horror subgenre that seems to possess an undying appeal” on May 18th according to the HeroComplex website, and will “share tidbits” about their upcoming projects.


The “Dead” film will kick-off the event at 7pm, followed by a “Walking Dead” highlight reel from Season two and end with a Q&A session with both creators.

Superman Man of Steel poster Henry Cavill handcuffs“Shaun of the Dead” will close out the “Zombie Summit” program afterwards, with an interview with its director and co-writer Edgar Wright.

Snyder is directing the Superman reboot and can expect questions regarding the trailer (which is due to arrive with “The Dark Knight Rises” in July) as well as working with the ensemble cast which includes Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Michael Shannon (Zod), Kevin Costner (Pa Kent), Diane Lane (Ma Kent), Russell Crowe (Jor-El) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White).
