Zack Snyder Discusses Batman vs. Superman

While information about Zack Snyder’s upcoming sequel to Man of Steel have been trickling at a steady rate, Snyder himself has been tight lipped about what we can expect from the film (tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman). The tides seem to have turned, as Snyder has recently broken his silence during an interview with the LA Times:

“We’re getting ready to start shooting in a month or so,” says Snyder. “It’s very fun to get into this world with different heroes coexisting in the same universe, but a lot of balls are in the air. As a fan, it’s an amazing opportunity.”

“We know the material,” he continues, in response to fan criticism over the casting choices so far. “Unfortunately, the fans don’t know the material. So, we’re casting according to what’s happening in the script.”

“We’re hoping that leads to enough originality, enough perspective on what we’re doing that you get something fresh and exciting. I understand the canon. I’m not crazy. I know what these characters need from a mythological standpoint.”

“I think Jesse [Eisenberg] is going to be an amazing Lex [Luthor]. Let’s not forget he was nominated for an Academy Award. It’s not like I just grabbed my friend to play the guy! This guy’s the real deal.”

And as to what we can expect from the film itself? Well apparently it won’t be too much in thrall to the source material…

“[The movie] literally takes the Man of Steeland Batman universes and explodes them. You’re not as tied to the mythology. In Man of Steel, we had to create an origin story, a mythology… but now that you’ve got these characters… to now let ‘em loose, that’s fun!”
