“Someone says to me, ‘Batman killed a guy.’ I’m like, ‘fck, really? Wake the fck up,’” explained Snyder. “I guess that’s what I’m saying. Once you’ve lost your virginity to this fcking movie and then you come and say to me something about like, ‘My superhero wouldn’t do that.’ I’m like, ‘Are you serious?’ I’m like down the fcking road on that.”
He continued, “It’s a cool point of view to be like, ‘My heroes are still innocent. My heroes didn’t fucking lie to America. My heroes didn’t embezzle money from their corporations. My heroes didn’t fucking commit any atrocities.’ That’s cool. But you’re living in a fucking dream world.”(Uproxx)
Batman V. Superman is one of the most disappointing movies ever made. For comic book fans who waited their entire lives to finally see Batman and Superman on the big screen together, Zack Snyder decided to ruin both iconic heroes in a garbage movie that didn’t make any sense and betrayed the defining characteristics of the main protagonists.
Batman is a character that has been developed for decades upon decades of writing and after all these years, he has two clear rules: he doesn’t use a gun (ya know, because of the whole thing with his parents) and he doesn’t kill people.
Zack Snyder’s decision to turn Batman into a brutal bloodthirsty killing machine completely erases years of character development. If you don’t like or respect the source material then why the fuck are you making the movie?
You don’t need to make this some sort of attack on comic book nerds. Again, YOU chose to direct a comic book movie. No one is making you do this. Don’t shit all over Batman fans because they don’t want all of Batman’s actions and motives changed by you because it’s like ‘cool’ to you.
It’s not a matter of fans living in a ‘dream world’. It’s about your complete dismissal over the fact that it’s a fucking SUPERHERO MOVIE WHICH INEVITABLY TAKES PLACE IN A DREAM WORLD. THAT’S LITERALLY THE POINT.
You want to make a gritty ‘realistic’ superhero movie that takes place in the modern day that isn’t for snowflakes or owns the libs or whatever then create your own superhero.
But don’t take a beloved character, change the most important aspects of that character and then put a middle finger up to everyone who is mad at you for ruining something they care about.
You are not cool, Zack. I cannot stress this enough. It’s insane that someone who consistently puts out trash films has this level of cockiness. Did
Get Zack Snyder OUUUT of here. He ruined DC movies and he’s mad at US about it.
