Zack Snyder Says Batman v Superman Is A Sequel, Get The Details
Sep 23 2015
Speaking with jam.Canoe.com, director Zack Snyder confirms that Man of Steel 2 is coming. With Warners delivering the second installment in its Justice League franchise next year, which it hopes will become a rival to Marvel's Avengers universe, no wonder the feud between the two is picking up steam.
Collider: I think the reason why the Marvel movies are so good - especially Winter Soldier- is that Winter Soldier's a '70s political thriller that happens to star Captain America.
Batman v Superman filmmaker Snyder recently stoked rivalry between Marvel and DC Comics by calling Ant-Man a "flavor of the week", and Stan wasn't going to take it lying down. Since then, however, we've heard many rumors about Batman movies, including one being co-written by Bruce Wayne actor Ben Affleck and DCE CCO Geoff Johns, but virtually nothing about Superman's solo cinematic future. "But I would say we're still making something very original in our own way". And I think that we have. Meanwhile, George Miller has also been rumored for the Justice League Dark movie that Guillermo del Toro was previously involved in developing. When WB claimed May 2016 as the month in which they planned to debut BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, Marvel flexed their muscles a bit and claimed the exact same release date for CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. "And I think that's compelling".
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
Snyder started his career doing commercials and zombie flicks, and little did he know that he will be bringing the Justice League onto the big screen.
Snyder also addresses Steven Spielberg's prediction that superhero films will wind down, just as the westerns did before it, saying "The pressure's on us, the filmmakers, to make the movies better ... But I don't think I would realize what it meant to pop culture the way it has struck pop culture right now".
