Movies, Snyder said noticeable concern about superhero movie fatigue further motivates him to work on a movie because he believes it’s a story that is worth telling – and not just because big name heroes are involved. Snyder explained that, to him, it’s not about creating a superhero film, but it’s instead about creating a whole new cinematic mythos for fans to enjoy, regardless of when they watch it:

“He [Steven Spielberg] might not be wrong about the oversaturation and fatigue of the superhero genre. I think it puts more pressure on us, the filmmakers, to not just crank out superhero movies for the sake of it. To me, the one thing I love working in the DC universe is that Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman are American mythology. It’s not about making a superhero, it’s a mythological universe that we live in. That I hope stands the test of time. They stood the test of time. That’s hopefully the sort of magic bullet. But who knows what audiences will want in the future.”Batman-V-Superman-false-God-statue

He even shot down one relatively recent rumor – one which claims his son was cast as Robin:

“ It’s funny because every now and then someone will touch on something that’s kind of true, but the next thing they say makes me realize that they took a wild guess. They’ll say something and I’ll say ‘Oh snap, they must have seen the script.’ And then they’ll say, ‘And this happens!’ And then I’ll go, They have no idea what they’re talking about. It’s fun for everyone to speculate and take shots and think of things and try to sell it. There’s an industry in selling your guess. [People think], ‘I’m going to make a fake script and look like I read the real one.’ What length are you willing to go?”batman-v-superman-dawn-of-justice-done-filming-570x294

“I’m staying with Batman V Superman and Justice League and Justice League 2 — those are my main responsibilities, as well as producing the other movies. That’s the main line. Once you get Justice League, you’re pretty deep in it. But like I was saying, not to be a selfless promoter of our program, what it shows is that we have this giant berth of opportunity with the DC movies now to I think find the opportunities for even young filmmakers to even get involved because there are so many projects.”
