After the critical thrashing “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” received earlier this year, many fans and critics alike have been curious about how the backlash has affected the people intimately involved with bringing the DC Extended Universe to life and how it has affected the morale on set of the forthcoming Justice League. Lois Lane actress Amy Adams talked at length about the now famous backlash and how it affected the production on the ‘Justice League’ also from director, Zack Snyder. In the interview with Variety’s Kris Tapley she confirms that while morale remains unabashed on set, she was sad to see director Zack Snyder take the kind of critical beating he did back in March.
When Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice was released in March, critics and fans were split in the middle and to this day, has avid detractors and defenders online who keep the discussion and debate on the film alive in the online film community with one editorial or another published each day in regards to the film. Most people praised Ben Affleck’s new iteration of Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman while deriding Zack Snyder and everything else about the film.
“I just felt for Zack,” Adams says. “Zack’s like the nicest person ever, and to see him kind of talked about like that was really hard for me, because he’s really such a respectful director.”
Also adding that “I would love for people to see how special he is“.
Zack Snyder as a director seems to be a hit among his actors as earlier this week, JK Simons also shared some praise for the filmmaker. It remains to be seen how critics and the general audience at large will respond to his forthcoming ‘Justice League’.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
