He's not worried about online criticism...
Zack Snyder recently spoke with the LA Times about the upcoming Batman vs. Superman. Check out the highlights:
On the costumes: "We're getting ready to start shooting in a month or so. It's going great. I'm very excited... We were just testing the suits, right? The new Batsuit and the Superman suit. It wasn't even with the actors, right? It was just to see ‘em. I was standing there, they were standing next to each other and I was like, 'Guys, someone take a picture! This has never happened before!'"
On the continuity of the DC film universe: In Man of Steel, we had to create an origin story, a mythology. There's a lot of energy into that, which we love doing. Don't get me wrong. But when you think about how fun it is too — now that you've got these characters — to now let ‘em loose. That's fun! ...[it] literally takes the Man of Steel and Batman universes and explodes them."
On reaction to the casting news: "We know the material. Unfortunately, the fans don't know the material. So, we're casting according to what's happening in the script. And we're hoping that leads to enough originality, enough perspective on what we're doing that you get something fresh and exciting. I understand the canon. I'm not crazy. I know what these characters need from a mythological standpoint."
