While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is released nationwide today and tomorrow, early screenings and critical reviews have already been surfacing for the D.C. film.
Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill (Superman) opened up about why they believe the film is so decisive. Cavill noted that all opinions come from a place and what matters in his opinion, is how audiences will respond all around the world.
“The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions. And the thing about personal opinions is that they always come from a place. And there’s a preconceived idea which you have to get past a critic before you start writing your article or your review, and that affects everything. What is really going to matter, I believe, is what the audience says. Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story or not and so the audience’s voice is loudest and after this weekend the audience, at least partly, will have spoken.”
Zack Snyder, who is no stranger to criticism and polarizing reviews, weighed in on the early reactions to Batman v Superman.
“I’m a comic book guy and I made the movie based as much as I could on that aesthetic. And so I don’t know how else to do it 100%, so it is what it is.”
The movie is already projected to be a hit with fans at the box office. Deadline is reporting that online chatter is boosting this projected opening to 160+ domestically.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
