Deborah Snyder, producer of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice spoke with Empire Magazine about the difference in tone with the DC Extended Universe in comparison to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and what is good about it.
“Right from the beginning it is different tonally from where those movies are. You know, DC is an ancient world in a lot of ways. I can see how people would want to make it this big, intense rivalry. Listen, they are so great. I loved Guardians of the Galaxy…our films are a bit more serious. They deal with things that are a little darker. Things that place them in our world.”
