Zack Snyder Feels That Marvel Movies Are Popular Action Comedies At Best

In the recent weeks Zack Snyder has been very open about the fact that he wanted to create a very different DC Cinematic Universe, the distinction of which can be seen from his version of Justice League being something the Warner Bros executives would have ever allowed. The original Justice League release in 2017 was the Joss Whedon cut of the same movie where the Avengers director was roped in for Justice League reshoots much to the dismal of DC fans and bad box office reception. Even though comic book movies bank high on the star value and popularity of characters, Zack Snyder admits that the bad critical reception of Man Of Steel and Batman V Superman had “eroded” his image.

In an interview with the New York Times, the director had revealed that the audience that loves superhero genre of films did not exactly had the same enthusiasm for his vision as they do for the Marvel movies. He further added “Marvel is doing something else. They’re doing, at the highest level, this popular action-comedy with a heart. And they have that nailed. An effort to duplicate that is insanity because they’re so good at it. What DC had was mythology at an epic level, and we were going to take them on this amazing journey. Frankly, I was the only one saying that.”

Even though there have been many fans who have time and again demanded a Snyder Cut of the Justice League and have stuck to the due hard DC fandom, the studio was not very keen to release the Snyder cut as now it is brought to HBO Max. Most DC and comic book fans are hoping that DC embracing it’s own uniqueness going a different direction than Marvel should infact be a good thing.
