With Dorito’s annual “Crash The Superbowl” campaign coming to an end, director Zack Snyder is teaming up with the Frito-Lay to find a talented aspiring filmmaker, who will get the change to work with him on the set of one of the upcoming DC Extended Universe films, as well as a win a one million dollar prize.
While speaking with Yahoo about the contest, the director also talked about a number of things, including the DC Extended Universe. When he was asked about his opinion on Steven Spielberg’s comments about how superhero movies would eventually “go the way of the western” in the future, Snyder had to say this:
When asked about the difficulty of overseeing such a large universe with many films including the likes of Aquaman, Wonder Woman and the two-part Justice League coming up in the next few years, Snyder reassured that his main responsibility is working on the ones he’s directing and producing.
Snyder also addressed the number of rumors regarding the DC Extended Universe that have been making the rounds on the internet, stating that his son isn’t playing Robin in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as previously reported.
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
