Zach Snyder Justifies 'Man Of Steel' Ending: Sequel Will Be Different From Christopher Nolan's Batman Universe

By Staff Reporter | August 30, 2013 04:14 AM EDT


The director of the latest Superman reboot, "Man of Steel" has been criticized for the overly destructive ending. Zach Snyder addresses that issue, while explaining that apart from having a different actor play Batman, the sequel will not be set in the Batman Universe in used in the Dark Knight trilogy.

Snyder had an interview with The Japan Times, and he has this to say about the climax:

  "I wanted the movie to have a mythological feeling. In ancient mythology, mass deaths are used to symbolize disasters. In other countries like Greece and Japan, myths were recounted through the generations, partly to answer unanswerable questions about death and violence. In America, we don't have that legacy of ancient mythology. Superman is probably the closest we get. It's a way of recounting the myth."

Snyder, who also directed the hits '300' and 'Sucker Punch' is no stranger to the impact of violence and destruction, as he has used them effectively in the past. However, critics have cited that the "Man of Steel" went overboard.

Snyder also noted Christopher Nolan's involvement in the film, who served as Executive Producer on Man of Steel. Snyder clarifies that the Batman trilogy director will not be involved with the sequel, even with the Dark Knight in the cast.

Nolan has given Snyder a free hand to construct his own Batman universe. Thus it is speculated that villains from the series, specifically the Joker, could be used in future films.
