1. Zack Snyder has changed his directorial style
When BvS failed to win over everyone, the brunt of the criticism was foisted on Zack Snyder. Some considered his dark, deconstructive style a bad fit for a film about superheroes smashing into each other. Snyder is back in the director’s chair for Justice League, but he seems to have taken the fallout of BvS on board.
“Justice League is much more inclusive,” Snyder said. “I think also you have these two very young characters, Flash and Cyborg. And you know, they’re definitely lighter. I think they’re going to appeal to a younger audience.”
“You know, when Batman v Superman first came out, I was like, ‘Wow, okay, woof.’” He continues. “It did catch me off-guard. I have had to, in my mind, make an adjustment, and maybe it’s my hardcore take on the characters as far as I love ‘em, and I love the material. I do, I take it really deep. So I think the nice thing about working on Justice League is that it is an opportunity to really blow the doors off of the scale and the bad guys and team-building and all the stuff that I think I could justify as a big, modern comic book movie, if that makes any sense.”
The big takeaway is Justice League will be a much more celebratory film than we might have expected. Whatever your feelings on Batman v Superman, that can only be a good thing.
Justice League will swoop into cinemas on 17th November 2017.
