Zack Snyder And The Cast Of BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Respond To The Movie's Negative Reviews

Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, and Jesse Eisenberg talk about the reviews which have been doing the rounds, and the Superman actor's response in particular is very well said.


It's hard to remember the last comic book movie where critics took such delight in spitefully tearing it to shreds in the same way they have with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It doesn't deserve that, and in the video above, each of the main cast members provide some insightful thoughts into why. It's Henry Cavill who delivers the choice quote though, stating: "The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions. And the thing about personal opinions is that they always come from a place. And there’s a preconceived idea which you have to get past a critic before you start writing your article or your review, and that affects everything. What is really going to matter, I believe, is what the audience says. Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story or not and so the audience’s voice is loudest and after this weekend the audience, at least partly, will have spoken."
 
Ben Affleck didn't have anything to add to that and generally looks quite uncomfortable, something which is understandable when you consider the fact that some might perceive this as another Daredevil despite him being hailed by many as the best big screen Batman to date.

A somewhat dejected Zack Snyder meanwhile added: "I’m a comic book guy and I made the movie based as much as I could on that aesthetic. And so I don’t know how else to do it 100%, so it is what it is." What it is, is a comic book movie made by a comic book fan FOR comic book fans.

Regardless, Amy Adams perhaps says it best: "If you’re interested in a film you should see it and form your own opinion rather than just going on the word of somebody [else]."

So, don't take my word or anyone else's for it; just go watch Batman v Superman this weekend and let us know your thoughts when you do.
