While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is only a day away from being released nationwide, Zack Snyder still has a few things to say about Man of Steel and the controversial destruction and death count that took place during the Superman story.
During an interview with The Wall Street Journal Snyder was asked if he could remember someone recently telling him that they couldn’t think of another film that had so much destruction and damage.
“I went, really? And I said, well, what about [‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’]? In ‘Star Wars’ they destroy five planets with billions of people on them. That’s gotta be one of the highest death toll movies in history, the new ‘Star Wars’ movie, if you just do the math.”
The Batman v Superman director admits that he was surprised by the reaction of how he portrayed Superman.
“I was surprised with the fervency of the defense of the concept of Superman. I feel like they were taking it personally that I was trying to grow up their character.”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is Directed by Zack Snyder and will star Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice will hit theaters this Friday March 25th, 2016!
