While promoting his latest movie The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Case, actor Patrick Wilson sat down with Badtaste.it. During this interview, Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman came up and Wilson, who has starred in 2009’s Watchmen (which was also directed by Snyder) adressed the criticism that BvS has been receiving.
“I mean, I would love to be in a DC movie if it works out. I was going to do another, do a Marvel movie and that didn’t work out, and I was really close to that, so uh, yeah, look I love comic book movies and I have dug BVS, so, as far as reviews that’s not really my business, and I certainly, I remember going through that with Watchmen where you were so faithful to it that the, real, that some people thought it was too faithful for its own good, so its like you can’t, you make movies for audiences, and a movie that makes 900 million dollars, I don’t think you can sit here with a straight face and say “yeah, it really did poorly”. That’s kind of crazy you know? That’s a lot of people enjoyed it really thoroughly as did I, so, only positive for me.”
While the movie might not have been perfect, calling something that grossed $871 million a complete failure is just not justified. Did you like Batman V Superman? Let us know in the comments and on social media!
