Patrician director Zach Snyder responds to the backlash against Lex Luthor in the trailer and confirms what we all already knew.
>"In the trailer, of course he comes across in a very specific way. In the movie, he’s like a million times more sophisticated than what you get in 30 seconds. But that’s also the fun of it. That’s why you go to the movies, so you can actually see the context and understand the depth."
He does. Idk I think it's his style. He gives it to you right in your face and makes it go over your head at the same time. Just in MoS he makes a lot of blatant symbolism in some scenes and in others he's so subtle people miss it
but the trailer literally showed you a storyboard of beginning to end.
other trailers show moments at the end, middle, start etc but it's all muddled up so you don't really process it like that.
but the BVS trailer literally showed you the movie start to end, then blew it's load revealing a money shot of Wonder Woman and Doomsday.
>Videogame-tier high speed action scenes
>Everything looks gray to give the impression that there are indeed going through tough times but there is light at the end of the tunnel
Truly a visionary
It was admittedly a mistake to show Batman and Superman working together at the end. That seriously fucks the tone of the rest of the trailer.
But i dont buy that we know the story beat for beat though.
It's a fantasy all inside the head of a silly edge girl it can be nonsensical and shit but there's literally nothing long with the direction
It is probably his weakest movie though
And you're right, there is a ton of depth and sophistication in that scene. It presents Superman, and Superman's, in a conflicted way. Superman wants to save people from Zod; but at the same time he wants to save Zod because of his kinship and due to his optimistic upbringing.
Zod says he was made for war, and that's all he knows, whereas Superman had the benefit of being raised as Clark Kent, in a loving and American household where values not learned on Krypton were instilled to him.
When he is trying to stop Zod, he is doing so because he believes he can be helped in the end and redeemed. The truly tragic realization is that Zod *can't* be saved and this devastates Superman and everything he knows about the world. Thus he is faced with one ultimate choice to test him both physically and mentally. Either he tries to continue to subdue Zod at the cost of human lives lost, or he finishes Zod off to protect the world from destruction.
It's a fascinating dichotomy at play that can only be done by Snyder in the super hero film genre.
you can't stop me motherfucker
>being twig skinny
>literally nothing long with the direction
I will direct the whole movie like some fucking music video
There is everything wrong with the direction of Sucker Punch, if there was a literal example of style over substance this film would be it
sure, but this movie would be at a Time were Superman is already well know, thus meaning he would have already lost his fucking hair. This isn't a Lex origin movie fellas.
>there are people so gullible that they believe any shit filmmakers say about their own movies before release
>there are people who still believe in Hack Znyder
I really can't tell if Snyder-apologists are trolling epicly or 100% serious about their delusions anymore
Yes exactly, there is plenty that could be done with that material to give it some kind of thematic substance.
Instead he decided he wanted to direct an hour and a half My Chemical Romance video, which would be fine(if anyone wanted to see that shit) if it even attempted to have some depth and the visuals themselves didn't look like garbage.
BvS is looking much more like Sucker Punch than MoS. It's disgusting to see 70% of the outdoor scenes in the trailers being CGI/green screen.
MoS had a problem with the quality of CGI but overall it was used when it was needed. I think Nolan had something to do with that. But now Snyder is on the loose.
I agree. That final shot in the trailer where Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman are all standing together looks fucking awful.
Why couldn't they use some non-CGI fire in the background? Nolan had real fire during the plane scene and that one scene was greater than all of MoS.
>TFW they are trying to use this as a Justice League set up
>TFW CGI madness
He has already lost his hair. It's a wig.
I don't know why people can't figure this out. He appears with that shit in the trailer in scenes far advanced in the movie, after dealing with Kryptonite.
I may be back tracking, but how am I wrong? I am not. Why would they introduce Lex as he "was" in the middle of Superman's story.
this makes more sense. I still have no intentions of seeing that shit movie though.
>movie about whores
>Juno Temple isn't in it
