Zach Snyder Talks Superman Movie & Batman vs. Superman Possibility
Here are the main excerpts from The Daily Telegraph interview:
You’re directing the next Superman movie: that’s quite a gig. How do you feel about taking on the superhero that everyone loves?
It’s very exciting. Do I feel responsible? Look, as a fan, I want to make it awesome, so in that way I feel responsible. There’s an amazing film in there to be had, and I’m excited to get at it.
You’re working with Christopher Nolan, director of the last two Batman films. Is there a conflict of interest there? Batman v Superman?
He is a generous and amazing talent and as a producer super-supportive even in just the few weeks we’ve been talking about it.
What can you say about it at this stage?
Nothing. It’s very early in the process and it’s going to be famously guarded. So there’s very little to be said other than I’m a huge fan and I’m excited to get started on this.
It’s going to be a reboot of the franchise...
In the sense that it doesn’t really owe anything to what’s happened before cinematically.
And apparently you’re getting $175 million to play with...
I have no idea. Nobody has said anything to me about that, but I’ll quote that at them. It’s a good place to start in the negotiations.
I doubt Superman and Batman ever share the same screen because of the guidelines set by DC and Warner Brothers, but I would be lying if I told you I wasn't excited that Synder said, "we’ve been talking about it."
What do you think? Is there any realm of possibility Superman and Batman will be in the same movie.
