Zack Snyder has spoken with Yahoo Movies about how it feels to work with theDC Extended Universe and essentially be the one pulling the strings of the whole franchise.
Snyder, who has begun the DC Extended Universe with Man of Steel and will continue to add to its great line up with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and the two parted Justice League films and will Produce the rest of the franchise starting with Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman.
There are mostly blockbusters and tiny indie films these days, and Steven Spielberg said that he thought superhero movies would go the way of the western. As the guy running the DC franchise, what’d you think of that?
He might not be wrong. I think it puts more pressure on us, the filmmakers, to not just crank out superhero movies for the sake of it. To me, the one thing I love working in the DC universe is that Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman are American mythology. It’s not about making a superhero, it’s a mythological universe that we live in. That I hope stands the test of time. They stood the test of time. That’s hopefully the sort of magic bullet. But who knows what audiences will want in the future.
You’re overseeing such a big, big universe, with Wonder Woman and Aquaman and other films. How do you handle overseeing them all?
I’m staying with Batman V Superman and Justice League and Justice League 2 — those are my main responsibilities, as well as producing the other movies. That’s the main line. Once you get Justice League, you’re pretty deep in it. But like I was saying, not to be a selfless promoter of our program, what it shows is that we have this giant berth of opportunity with the DC movies now to I think find the opportunities for even young filmmakers to even get involved because there are so many projects.
