Three years on, Zack Snyder is still upset about fan reactions to Ben Affleck’s murder-happy caped crusader in Batman V. Superman. From CBR.com:
“Someone says to me: [Ben Affleck’s] Batman killed a guy. I’m like, ‘Fuck, really? Wake the fuck up.’ I guess that’s what I’m saying. Once you’ve lost your virginity to this fucking movie and then you come and say to me something about like ‘my superhero wouldn’t do that.’ I’m like ‘Are you serious?’ I’m like down the fucking road on that. It’s a cool point of view to be like ‘my heroes are still innocent. My heroes didn’t fucking lie to America. My heroes didn’t embezzle money from their corporations. My heroes didn’t commit any atrocities.’ That’s cool. But you’re living in a fucking dream world.”
This, it should be reiterated, is in reference to a movie about a billionaire who dresses up as a bat to fight criminals and alien monsters.
