Zack Snyder changing the tone for Justice League due to Batman v Superman criticism
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was panned by critics and received mixed reactions from fans. With Zack Snyder returning to direct another DC and Warner Bros. movie, Justice League, he and the team are making some changes to how they’re making and promoting the film. They have already allowed a bunch of journalists on the Justice League set in England. Variety was one of them, and Snyder admits to them that he’s listening to the fans and critics.
“When Batman v Superman came out, I was like, ‘Wow, okay, oof,’” the filmmaker said. “It did catch me off guard. I have had to, in my mind, make an adjustment. I do think that the tone of Justice League has changed because of what the fans have said.”
Even though he’s changing the tone of the upcoming movie, he still is protective of Batman v Superman.
“You really had to dig down on the darker parts of them to make them fight each other. I really do believe that with this movie, with Justice League, they’ve been freed of the responsibility to be in a place where they would fight each other. That’s liberating for us in making the movie, because now we have a single enemy with a single objective, and it’s really about uniting the team. That, to me, is a fun activity.”
Let’s see if Snyder’s new approach will wow the naysayers when Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
