Director Snyder, in an interview with The Daily Beast, took the opportunity to speak directly to those fans who were generally disappointed with the most recent ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ trailer. Most thought it was too soon for the reveal of the big bad Doomsday. Feeling that BvS had basically spoiled the big reveal of the main antagonist of the film. But have they….?
Snyder who is obviously in the know as far as what BvS consists of, had this to say to The Daily Beast:
“I know what’s in the movie, so I know there’s other stuff. We had a long conversation about just taking ownership of that, of giving it to the audience in a controlled way that I felt was consistent with the escalation of the campaign.”
Snyder wants audiences to understand that there is a mythology behind Doomsday and that he wasn’t just tossing Doomsday into the final act.
“Well, you have Doomsday, right? He doesn’t just crawl out of the ground. He has his own mythology, right? So that has to be explored. To us it really made sense to give him to the audience now. I really wanted to make the audience a promise that… though I’m super excited and happy and fulfilled by the conflict of Batman and Superman, there’s also a bigger world to start to think about.”
It would appear that Director Snyder is teasing a bigger threat than Doomsday to come, he goes on to say that the studio is still learning as they go.
“It is constantly evolving, but we’re starting to get a handle on where we’re going with the world. That’s fun because it allows us now to be driving toward a goal that we don’t have to make up as much. The rules can be the rules, and the movie can exist in a closed universe… it allows us to tie things together. If there’s a movie over here doing this, and we’re over here doing this, now we’re all on the same page. It allows for a coherent universe, which is important. I think that makes the experience a little more satisfying because we know where we’re going, so the misdirects can be stronger and the reveals can be bigger.”
It sounds as though the Batman v Superman will be much deeper than what we have seen from trailers. Snyder appears to be setting up a much deeper universe, connecting all the films that will be rolling out in the DCEU for years to come.
