Any “Batman vs Superman” fans there expecting the film to be action-packed? Well, movie director Zack Snyder dished that the film would be “much more a drama” than an action film. Yay or nay?
In an interview with Obsev, Snyder talked about what moviegoers can expect from the upcoming DC film. Without giving away details on “Batman vs Superman,” the director talked about the tone of the film.
“I think the fun of the movie is, in the end, it’s a drama. They have to figure out each other, to figure out how to fight each other. So it’s really about what … makes them tick, and sort of, how that’s going to work out in a conflict. And we’ll see what happens.”
According to Cinema Blend, the conflict between the two superheroes is interesting to note. It’s because Superman sees “promise in humanity” while Batman looks at darkness. And when they fight, the site mentioned that the way they see each other will become a key element.
Recently, a Reddit user claimed to have witnessed an early screening of “Batman vs Superman.” Although the post dropped major spoilers on the film, it didn’t mention any dramatic scene. In fact, the post commended the actors’ great performances, including a stand out performance of Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne.
So what could Snyder be referring to? Cinema Blend noted that fans wouldn’t want to witness more drama. “Man of Steel” wasn’t able to please fans because it “focused much more on the drama,” contrary to what fans are expecting from superhero action films.
Den of Geek noted that the upcoming DC film won’t likely fix those issues. Actor Henry Cavill revealed that “Batman vs Superman” will continue the storyline and introduce new characters. However, Cavill admitted what’s in store for Superman.
“There’s so far you can go with it; if you really, really delve deep into the character, there’s so much you can do. It’s just about exploring it within the vehicles and finding what you want to do. He’s going to have some very interesting character development in this one.”
