Zack Snyder Talks Batman v Superman with WIRED Magazine

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder spoke with WIRED Magazine recently on the subject of the Destruction of Metropolis in Man of Steel, as well as Zod’s death and the consequences that will occur due to those actions in Batman v Superman. Along with all that, Snyder also talks about how they approach some of the other Justice League members and Wonder Woman’s role in Batman v Superman.


“To me, the killing of Zod is not as big a deal as the destruction of Metropolis. It’s important that these movies have consequences, that there is collateral damage. I Batman v Superman I wanted to show how Bruce Wayne feels when reduced to a sideline sitter. Batman is frightened by his impotence in the face of that.”


“We’ve been strict with our rules. What they can do – Batman, Superman, Flash, Cyborg – we really are hard on ourselves because we want all those things to have a reality, a mythological grounding.”


“Female empowerment is a thing I’ve gone after in all my films. They all have strong female representation. It’s about time Wonder Woman was represented correctly.”

Read the full interview in WIRED Magazine on April 3rd.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

Wonder Woman's Description in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    Doesn’t matter what he says, Zack will never understand these characters. Superman isn’t supposed to struggle to save the world, he’s supposed to smile while saving cats out of trees. Batman isn’t supposed to be Ben Affleck, he’s supposed to be Christian Bale. Lex Luthor isn’t supposed to be an evil scientist/businessman, he’s supposed to be a corrupt real estate agent. Wonder Woman isn’t supposed to be a twig, she’s supposed to be American. The Flash isn’t supposed to be gay, he’s supposed to have blond hair. Zack’s constant shitting on the source material is exactly why Marvel/Disney will alway be the superior company.

      Don’t “supposed to be” in every blatant argument you make. It’s what YOU want them to be!
      As for any counter-argument I could’ve made, you just lost me at the last line where you swear your allegiance to one company, but not source material in general. Have a nice day, mate!

      • Guest

        He’s being sarcastic, man. Just look at how blatantly he is trolling.

      • Henry’s Hairline

        I don’t even got eyes and can see that he got you good, brah!

      • Henry’s Hairline

        I don’t even got eyes and can see that your Jimmies have been quite rustled!

    • 1. Superman was superman for about a week so he was still extremely new to the superheroics. You would struggle to if you fought against another being with the same power advantages. Superman doesn’t develop his ‘boy scout’ nature until further in his Superman career.

      2. A new Batman needs a new Batman actor. I’m not saying I didn’t llike Bale’s performance, I thought he was great and it was a interesting intepretation of the Dark Knight by Nolan. The fact that you cannot let go or move on displays your ignorance and stubborness and it’s hard to believe your comments are even serious. Nolan’s take on DC universe was grounded,serious and realistic. And Snyder’s take will be comic book and is faithful to the source material but it can’t always be, just like marvel had some tweaks in their movies. So you just can’t compare both way, but snyder’s way also will be successful like Nolan’s. And to be honest aesthetically speaking Nolan’s Batman was lacking physically. Afflecks Batman is a hulking mass of badass who finally has some crazy ass fight sequences. I liked Bale as Batman, and I’m sure Affleck will do the dark knight justice.

      3. First off Lex Luthor is a bussiness man he’s the head of his own company Lexcorp. Second he’s a brilliant scientist and industrialist. A mad scientist is a accurate description for someone who has cloned Superman and created his own battle armor Lex suit. Corrupt real estate agent? are you just pulling shit out of your ass?

      4. You are a idiot because you stated an opinion that has no merits of importance. It is an opinion that is basically stated to insult the actress who is playing WonderWoman and insult the people that supports her.
      What is wonderwoman supposed to look like? If you are basing your delusions of what wonderwoman should look like from a comic book, then which one? There has to be hundreds of different iterations of wonderwoman in the comics, which one are you referring to?The Cinematic universe of DC comics is separate from the DC comic book universe. WB who is the in charge of DC cinematic universe can enforce their own creative liberties with the characters. That includes wonderwoman. Maybe the studio did not want her to be a hulking muscle machine. Wonderwoman’s strength is derived from the power of the Gods and therefore muscle has nothing to do with it. Do you even know anything about Wonderwoman’s origin?

      5. Flash’s sexuality is not even a valid argument here and neither is his hair color.

      The fact that you would come to this website and write this comment has shown you to be an ignorant drone marvel fanboy whose arguements are baseless and therefore demonstrably fallacious. Good Day.

      • Henry’s Hairline

        You’re a bright one, aren’t you? Way to respond to a guy clearly being sarcastic with a whole essay. Hahahaha!

        • PartialDiggerHarkness

          In his defense, I’ve seen much stupider comments that were 100% serious.

      • PartialJarrad

        You type like a younger man with nothing held back…admirable but mistaken.

      • Colonel_Neville_Wraithchild
