During a recent sit down with MTV, Zack Snyder discussed the recent controversy with the trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and complaints from those who thought it gave away too much of the film.
On the new Batmobile: “I do get to get in it quite a bit, more than when we were filming which is funny. When I’m filming, I’m like, ‘Move that thing over there!’ I’m like, mad at it. But after we’re done shooting I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s my best friend! Yaay! Get in it! Love it!’ I love the design of it. I love the thing, it drives like crazy. You can skid it around, it’s like a frickin’ race car. And in that way it’s super practical. We did a huge chase with it and it drove, which is cool. It’s got a big Corvette engine in it and it can just run.”
On the trailer giving away too much: “I have the benefit of seeing the movie. It’s cool that they think it’s too much and I appreciate people not wanting to know, but there’s plenty that they don’t know. There’s a lot of movie that’s not in the trailer.”
On Lex Luthor: “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.”
