Snyder On “League,” Multiverse, Batman Theme

We’re only a month away from Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and a new interview with the director has gone up over at the Hall of Justice Podcast (via CB) in which he talked about how the film sets up the “Justice League” films. Namely, don’t expect much of Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg in this particular outing:

“As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very small role. It’s really just a whisper they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her really well. But really the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters. That’s pretty much the why of the movie. But again as I said, it does begin the conversation about these guys are out there.”

Snyder also commented on the separation of the movies and the various popular DC TV shows, calling it a good thing DC is not going the way Marvel does because they’re trying something different – namely the multiverse approach:

“As opposed to trying to shoehorn all these storylines into a single universe, we let the characters exist in a multi-universe, and it’s a lot more fun, and a lot more value for the audience. [Fans] get to see their favorite, most beloved characters on different adventures at the same time in different universes. It makes it a lot more fun, we get to go in different directions at the same time. I’m like a kid in a candy store with this incredible opportunity. It’s really fun. It couldn’t be any better.”

Meanwhile, a snippet of Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL’s score for the film is out. This music is part of Batman’s ‘suite’ of music for the film (Zimmer focused on Supes, Junkie on the Bat) and is essentially his theme from the film – a track titled “Men Are Still Good”.

Then there’s, comic book prequels to “Dawn of Justice” are out in full. Check out the issues for Batman, Lois Lane, Senator Finch, Superman, and Lex Luthor.

Finally, star Henry Cavill has posted a new photo to his Instagram account of his “minimum goal” for how bulked up he plans to get for filming on “Justice League”.
