There are few blockbuster filmmakers with such a divided audience as Zack Snyder. From man of Steel to Batman versus SupermanSnyder’s films have severely divided audiences and critics. In a recent interview, Snyder weighed the division in his work and admitted that he ignored criticism because, in his opinion, none of the criticisms are valid.
“I honestly, I don’t watch it that often. I mean, look, I’ve watched this and kind of analyzed the kind of negative criticism of the films – like anyone would … in the past. I just don’t know … Me Didn’t find anything in the review to believe me and / or change what I’m doing. That way it doesn’t really affect me like there was a problem or some type of something that was missing in the work and I had to look at the review and then re-evaluate my approach, that would be a different scenario. But I wouldn’t change the framework of everything I’ve done, so … the review is just the review. “
The nature of the divided reaction to Snyder’s films has resulted in a rare occurrence in Hollywood where Snyder was first removed from director’s position for 2017 Justice League Halfway through filming and completed three years later by Warner Bros. at the behest of fans Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
But even though Warner Bros. now appears to be in his corner, Snyder remains skeptical of their intentions. In a separate interview with VanityFair, the filmmaker revealed that the studio wanted him to release an unfinished cut of the Snyder Cut, which he declined for three main reasons.
“I’m going, ‘Here’s why [I don’t want to release an unfinished version of Justice League]. Three reasons: First, you get the internet off your back, which is probably your main reason for wanting to do this. Second, doing things right on a certain level makes you feel validated. And then three, you get a crappy version of the movie that you can point to and go, “See? It’s not that good anyway. Maybe I was right. ‘I thought no chance. I’d rather the Snyder cut be a mythical unicorn forever. “
Now that the film is set to be released in less than a month, audiences will finally get to see what the three-year fuss was about.
