The cornerstone of the modern DCEU is the movies created by Zack Snyder, starting with Iron Man. Then came Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, possibly the franchise’s most controversial entry so far. In a recent interview, Debroah Snyder, who produced the film, weighed in on sharply divided reactions to Batman v. Supermanand the way a section of the press lashed out at the film for not being what they expected.
“We’ve had our bit of unkind press. However, part of it … It’s interesting because I think … [Batman v Superman] is the perfect example. ‘It’s very dark.’ Too dark compared to what? I think some of the reactions were ‘It’s not funny enough. It’s not the movie I expected it to be. ‘ And you are [saying], ‘Is it the movie’s fault or is it your fault for having a preconceived notion of what it should be?’ It was kind of interesting to read things like that. “
When Batman v. Superman It came out for the first time, it was met with a number of negative reviews. Everything from the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, to the plot where the Man of Steel went head-to-head with the Dark Knight, to Superman’s death, was the subject of a great deal of vitriol online. .
Possibly the most criticized and mocked scene in the entire film was what is known as the “Martha” moment. That was the scene where Batman, about to stab Superman with a kryptonite spear, stops in his tracks upon learning that Superman has a mother named Martha. Recently, Zack Snyder also got into the debate around the scene and the negative way the press reacted.
“I’m clearly a fan and very interested in how ‘Martha’ that concept is central to the movie. I mean, it’s 100% the lynchpin that holds the whole movie together. I think it’s indicative of the way Batman v Superman was. received that their central tenant was belittled and mocked. Personally, I think it’s like this beautiful and incredibly symmetrical idea that ends entirely as a concept. Everything is 100% with the intention and intention of being all the images you see, as to his inspiration and things like that. “
Hopefully, Snyder’s legacy in the DCEU will look better when the “Snyder Cut” from League of Justice finally launches on HBO Max.
