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.
CONSEQUENCES OF MAN OF STEEL
“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.”
ON APPROACHING THE JUSTICE LEAGUE CHARACTERS
“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.”
WONDER WOMAN’S ROLE ON THE FILM
“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.”
