'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' news: Zack Snyder admits hating spoilers; promises movie is far more than what it is in the trailer


Zack Snyder is one busy man. After finishing the massive “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” movie, he is also geared up to be back on set for part one of “Justice League.” Add to that the series of pre- and post-promotions of the first movie. After talking about the superhero laden “Justice League” project, Snyder sat down with MTV to talk about “Batman v. Superman.”

When the first trailer for the film came out, it received a lot of backlash saying that it already revealed the whole movie. Snyder, however, dismissed it by saying, “I have the benefit of seeing the movie. It’s cool that they think it’s too much and I appreciate people not wanting to know, but there’s plenty that they don’t know. There’s a lot of movie that’s not in the trailer.” He even went to say that Lex’s character (Jesse Eisenberg) is far more complex in the movie than what the trailer projected him to be. 

Furthermore, the filmmaker even candidly revealed that he is someone who does not like spoilers that much, openly admitting that every time nuggets about the film leaked to the public, he couldn’t help but get a little bit frustrated.

“Of course I hate it when any spoilers come out! You design the movie as a story that evolves as you watch it, so moment-to-moment [you’re thinking], ‘Oh my god, what’s going to happen next? Are they gonna live? Are they gonna die?'”

“So you want that experience for the audience, as much as you can. If you’re, as an audience member, exploring these articles, looking for answers to questions that you have, maybe you’re okay with knowing before you go. It’s like an individual taste. But like I said, I want people to see the movie without knowing,” he further explained.

“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will hit theaters on March 25.
