Aquaman director James Wan and Patrick Wilson who played Nite Owl in Watchmen, as well as POTUS in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, during an interview for their film The Conjuring 2 with Badtast.it, were asked on the backlash that Batman v Superman unfairly received.
“I think it’s a world that is so difficult to control, and always expectations of fans are out of this world, right? No pun intended. I know how hard it is, from making Conjuring 2, how much anticipation there is just from the first movie. I think you do the best you can, and tell the best story you can.”
“I mean, I would love to be in a DC movie if it works out. I was going to do another, do a Marvel movie and that didn’t work out, and I was really close to that, so uh, yeah, look I love comic book movies and I have dug BVS, so, as far as reviews that’s not really my business, and I certainly, I remember going through that with Watchmen where you were so faithful to it that the, real, that some people thought it was too faithful for its own good, so its like you can’t, you make movies for audiences, and a movie that makes 900 million dollars, I don’t think you can sit here with a straight face and say “yeah, it really did poorly”. That’s kind of crazy you know? That’s a lot of people enjoyed it really thoroughly as did I, so, only positive for me.”
