Zack Snyder | Zack Snyder hits back at Man of Steel critics

Pictures United Kingdom has released the first official stills from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.


Two of the fans’ biggest gripes with Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”, the Superman reboot that came out in 2013, related to its violent ending, which showed Supes doing things he would have never done in the comics or the films and TV shows inspired by him.

They said that Batman should prepare wisely – and he will. The reinforced mech-suit is equipped not only with strength-augmenting armor but also with kryptonite.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Snyder said that the backlash was unexpected.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, and Jesse Eisenberg in addition to Ben Affleck’s Batman. “I’ve heard some scuttlebutt about how Superman is not supposed to kill anybody and he broke his rule”, he told us, “but Zod very clearly states in the movie that it’s “either me or you””. And in order to help set up that full-on smorgasbord of muscles and nobility, one of their teammates in that superhero syndicate, Wonder Woman, is also going to appear in BvS. “In a lot of ways, she’s the gateway drug to the rest of the Justice League“, he was quoted as saying by

Early rumors suggested that there was little to nothing personal about Batman’s problem with Superman; rather, reports claimed that Batman just felt it was a unsafe, slippery slope for a almost omnipotent being to lord his power over normal citizens, which fit into the “false gods” theme we’ve heard so much about.

Last winter we found out that those complaints would be addressed in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the level of destruction would actually be a major element in how the rest of the world views Superman, and more specifically, how Bruce Wayne views the new godlike hero. As Batman and Superman confront one another, a new threat arrives to put mankind in greater danger than it has previously known. Quite how that fits with the jaded Dark Knight teased for Batman v Superman isn’t exactly clear, but if the solo movie turns out to be an origin story…


Other members of the cast with unconfirmed roles in the film include Holly Hunter from “The Piano”, Jena Malone of “Sucker Punch”, Tao Okamoto from “The Wolverine” Callan Mulvey of “300: Rise of an Empire“, and Scoot McNairy of “Argo“.
