‘Rebel Moon’: Zack Snyder Responds To Negative Reviews For His Movies

Why so negative?

Was Rebel Moon really as bad as people think? Zack Snyder responded to why his movies get negative reviews.

Rebel Moon was Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated take on Star Wars over at Netflix. However, when the first part of his duology dropped on the streamer last year, it was met with a wave of negative reviews, ultimately landing at a dismal 21% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Zack Snyder has a history of negative reviews spanning long before Rebel Moon. While he’s had some hits like Watchmen, many of his movies like Batman v Superman and Sucker Punch are certified rotten. When asked about these negative reviews, Snyder admitted that they don’t really get to him, even if he doesn’t particularly understand them.

“I don’t really have a rebuttal to the reviews,” Snyder told Empire in a recent interview. “For whatever reason, the reaction to my movies is very polarising, and it always has been. The movie, it doesn’t seem like there’s that much in it that would warrant such visceral responses.”

It’s good that Zack Snyder is keeping his chin high when it comes to the negative reviews that his projects receive. Especially for Rebel Moon, criticisms of the director weren’t just limited to review sites like Rotten Tomatoes, with many people on social media calling out the poor script and Netflix’s decision not to release the director’s cut of the film immediately.

The Future Of Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon

Rebel Moon is still set to get a sequel in the coming months. Rebel Moon: Part 2 — The Scargiver is set to hit the streaming service in April, with a director’s cut for both films set to drop simultaneously sometime in the summer. It’s unclear if Zack Snyder’s flagship sci-fi series will continue beyond the two-parter Netflix has already ordered and filmed.

Zack Snyder has previously expressed interest in continuing Rebel Moon beyond the films Netflix has already produced. Last year he revealed a script for a third film is already being worked on, with hopes to make an additional trilogy following the release of The Scargiver.

Last year, it was also announced that a narrative podcast, an animated comic book, and an animated series would all be developed for the Rebel Moon universe following the events of Zack Snyder’s films. It’s currently unclear if those projects are still in production.
