Spoilers is something that is difficult to deal with these days both in the TV and movie world where no matter how much you try to protect the information, it sometimes gets out there anyway and can ruin a personal experience before you even get to see said product. There is always the debate of what is considered “too much spoilers” when you see a new trailer or TV spot for something, which has been something that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has had to deal with since its recent trailer.
Recently the director of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder, spoke with MTV where he was asked about his views on the concept of spoilers, what is considered “too much” and whether or not trailers really do give away everything from a film. Does the recent trailer with the big reveal of a certain monster spoil the whole plot of the movie? In his opinion, it doesn’t.
“I have the benefit of seeing the movie. It’s cool that they think it’s too much and I appreciate people not wanting to know, but there’s plenty that they don’t know. There’s a lot of movie that’s not in the trailer.”
When asked whether or not he hates when spoilers or information gets leaked, Snyder gave the following response and what type of experience he personally prefers for the audience when going into a film.
“Of course I hate it when any spoilers come out! You design the movie as a story that evolves as you watch it, so moment-to-moment [you’re thinking], ‘Oh my god, what’s going to happen next? Are they gonna live? Are they gonna die?’ So you want that experience for the audience, as much as you can. If you’re, as an audience member, exploring these articles, looking for answers to questions that you have, maybe you’re okay with knowing before you go. It’s like an individual taste. But like I said, I want people to see the movie without knowing.”
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice comes out on March 25.
