Henry Cavill talked with Yahoo Movies, and gave his thoughts on the negative critical reaction to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film currently has a 25% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. He said: ““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.”
Co-star Amy Adams added: “I know that Zack [Snyder] doesn’t make the movies – or none of us – are making the movies for the critics. You can’t go into it with that perspective. I know we really hope the fans like it and so far the reaction has been really positive on that front. 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].”
Meanwhile, Zack Snyder said in another interview that he was pleased with the film. He said: “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.“
Although critics have given the film a 28%, audiences have chimed in with a 72% Audience Score. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is in theaters now.
