Writer Denounces Interview Of DC Comics President Having Any Ill Will Towards Zack Snyder

Man of Steel Henry Cavill Superman Justice League DC UPDATE: Previously, a story was published incorrectly attributing comments from DC Entertainment about Zack Snyder which turned out to be inaccurate. Heroic Hollywood has retracted the original story and regrets the error.  Since this story was published, Abraham also tweeted an update on the original quote:

It’s been argued for a while now about whether or not DC’s apparent course correction in tone was mapped out or a reaction to recent films.

Speaking on the Batman on Film Podcast, Abraham Riesman — who conducted interviews for a big story on the future of DC films for last month’s edition of Vulture — recalled a quote that didn’t make it into the story.

“It was to the effect of ‘we are a director driven place and Zack [Snyder] had a vision that didn’t necessarily sync up with what our vision of these characters is, but we respect that he wanted to go for that and that’s part of our philosophy’.”

It should be noted that a source in the Vulture piece said Geoff Johns was concerned about the tone Synder implemented in Man of Steel. Here’s the full quote:

“Geoff Johns and Diane were reading scripts, and Geoff Johns, to his credit, was concerned that there was not enough lightness or humor, given who the character is,” recalls one person with knowledge of the making of Man of Steel. “Geoff definitely raised that point, but that current administration didn’t care that much about what Geoff Johns thought.”

If they didn’t care then, they certainly do now. Johns was made head of DC’s film division and what he says carries much more weight than it did in 2013. With Snyder  having left the DCEU’s next installation in Justice League due to family tragedy and Joss Whedon on board, a direction more ‘in sync’ with the higher ups moving forward is inevitable.

    They are trying to save Geoff Johns from the backlash. He must be the most likable guy in the world, because he has been in front of every DC train-wreck and every subsequent course correction.
