When it comes to deciding on the better superhero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder doesn't have a favorite. According to the man, who also directed Man of Steel, bringing new characters such as Batman and Wonder Woman and Cyborg into the movie makes for a 'thicker, denser and more epic' movie, and it is also a building block towards setting up Justice League, tentatively scheduled for 2018.
Zack Snyder claims that going to work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a thrill every single day.
New story details are revealed, including the fact that we'll see Clark Kent working at the Daily Planet, alongside Lois Lane and Perry White. Superman will also travel to Gotham City and be introduced to new threats, one of which is Lex Luthor. Zack Snyder talked about evolving the character for new audiences in 2016.
The director also talked about collaborating more with star Henry Cavill this time around.
Zack Snyder goes onto say that Superman will be affected by the new heroes he meets on earth, and that his perspective on humanity will be changed by them. He goes onto discuss the fact that he wasn't looking to bring Batman into the Man of Steel sequel, but it was Christopher Nolan's trilogy that proved to be the deciding factor.
The director didn't want to introduce Ben Affleck's Batman with an origin story, instead relying on the vast 75-year mythology for a different take, bringing a road weary Bruce Wayne to the screen for the first time.
While Zack Snyder wouldn't exactly explain how the pair meet, he did explain why he chose the v in the titles instead of Vs.
So far, the director has only done a handful of scenes with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck on set together.
It was speculated yesterday that Gal Gadot may be done shooting her scenes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Zack Snyder says that's not the case. They haven't filmed the actress in her costume yet.
About all the fan anticipation, the director had this to say,
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters May 6th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.
