Robbie Collin on Zack Snyder, the director who turned superheroes into gods

If you’ve ever wondered what the current superhero movie boom owes to Adolf Hitler, today at last your questions will be answered. That’s the aim, at least, of this first episode of Robbie Collin On..., a new series of video essays on film that I’m making for the Telegraph.

The idea is to get under cinema’s skin in ways the written word can’t quite manage: to unpick trends, to decode images, to prise open directors’ toolboxes and rummage through their spanners.

First up is Zack Snyder, the director who - love him or loathe him - has left his unmistakable stylistic mark on every comic book movie made today.
