Jon Schnepp Talks on Reading the Batman v Superman Script

Shares

Jon Schnepp director of The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened? and the host of AMC Heroes, while talking about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer on the latest episode of AMC Heroes, spoke on the script he read for the film after mentioning how he felt before reading it that the film had way too many characters in it.

Schnepp stated he thought the way the characters were introduced in the script was ‘smart’ and that each character got the right amount of screen time.

“I might have read the script, who knows. A lot people online keep saying I didn’t read the script, I appreciate your opinion of what I did or did not experience in real life. Anyways, what I read, I thought was really good and it made sense to me. I was like ‘Wow, they actually introduced all these characters smart’ and in the right way. Everyone has just the right amount of screen time. Batman, Superman have the most screen time, it’s Batman v Superman.”

    I love Schnepp, I think he’s great. That being said, I don’t believe that he read it and I think he’s referring to that fake script. Why would someone let him read the real script? That makes no sense to me.

    • Memorian

      Yea I remember him stating that he read the the script when that leaked one came out. So we’ll just have to see when the final film comes out if he’s right or not.

    • This is why I included the whole quote of him saying: “I might have read the script, who knows. A lot people online keep saying I didn’t read the script, I appreciate your opinion of what I did or did not experience in real life.”

      As for fake scripts, do studios pay people to write them, to then leak them to throw the media off?
