I like that Snyder mentioned exploring the choices Superman has to make and his moral compass. That sounds pretty interesting to me. I've always thought that one of the most interesting ways to explore Superman as a character is to examine how he handles being the most powerful superhero and what impact he can have on the world. The responsibility of his power. If Snyder does that well, I'll be a happy reader.
I love that he calls him Clark. That's his name! He wasn't raised getting called Kal-el or Superman. His name is Clark.
The run sounds good, and looks like it really gets into one of my favourite things about Supetman - he can do ANYTHING and always does the right thing. That must really be the most difficult thing in the world. Batman, Wolverine, they can lose control and get angry and get personal and that's easy. Keeping it calm, doing what's right instead of what you immediately want, that's hard. That's Interesting.

Okay, I admit it. Snyder loving Superman IV is worrisome to me.

As for the interview itself.....meh, these guys who are like "we're going to do the Superman gig like you never saw it before" pretty much always say the same thing. Shaking the character morally and physically. Making him confront the consequences of his choices. Finding his core.
We've heard all this already by others before him. Most of the time it was disapointing. And considering my appreciation of his work on Batman, I'm not especially confident (I will get his run on Detective for Christmas, so maybe my opinion will change).
If that said, if the story is about Superman doing something as politically ballsy as forcing countries to surrend him all nuclear weapons, it would at least have my curiousity.

Okay, don't take me being worried about someone liking a film I can't even get through without strong medication as being a downer on what's to come. That's not me.
And isn't Nuclear Man actually Superboy?
