Director Zack Snyder of the upcoming Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice, has opened up exclusively with DC All Access on their new app to tell us about how and where Superman is when we see him again later this month.
“Over the last two years he’s basically been Superman as pop culture would know him,” says Snyder “He’s been righting wrongs, there have been floods, mines have collapsed, bridges have collapsed, churches have caught on fire. He’s basically been a hero.”
SUPERMAN! Finally given the chance to be the hero we all know and love. Saving people and making up for what happened to Meteopolis in Man of Steel. But as we’ve seen in the trailers Superman’s heroic actions just aren’t quite enough.
“When we find him, he’s been dealing with the everyday world of being a superhero, but there’s a paradigm shift happening in that the unintended consequences of some of those rescues are starting to come into fruition. He’s starting to see that every action has a reaction,” Snyder explains. “Like, if you’re just taking a cat out of a tree, you can’t touch anything or the arborists will say, ‘He damaged the tree branch when he got the cat down.’ Or, ‘The cat wasn’t neutered, so now there’s thousands of cats.’ There’s no winning anymore for Superman.”
It seems like Superman is haven’t a pretty rough time and things are only about to get harder when Batman decides to take him down.
