Zack Snyder, the director of Batman V Superman needs serious directing advice from Stephen Dalton. Dalton, a film critic, offers some advice to the award-winning director to prevent making any further mistakes.
1) Try having characters which are actually like a woman
Dalton has an advice for Snyder on making female characters less vulnerable as in Batman v Superman, helpless victims or pretty widow dressing. How many times does Lois Lane (Amy Adams) need to be rescued by Superman? Take movies such as Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens as examples as both featured fantastic female leads.
2) Try be out of Christopher Nolan’s territory
His message to Snyder? Let Christopher Nolan handle his own movies; do not mess with him. Dalton writes Batman v Superman feels like a shallow copy of the Dark Knight aesthetic: the somber look, the self-serious tone, the thuddingly humorless script, not to mention Batman’s ridiculous sub-bass growl.
3) Make clear-cut political messages
The opening scene evokes the 9/11 attacks on New York. There is an attack on “race-baiting bigotry, especially given that extraterrestrial Superman is branded a potentially hostile enemy agent by cynical politicians.” Recycling 9/11 is thing of a past. He futher adds “evil villains in your movie are the son of an East German immigrant and a monstrous CGI alien who resembles a giant Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, maybe you have not fully worked out your glib message.” Maybe we expect to see more of a religiously super charged movies and all that kind which make ” Batman v Superman sound like a bunch of stoned college kids trying to impress each other.” Why not make your kind of movie rather than playing with mythology, religious symbols.
