Director Zack Snyder blamed Warner Bros. in hatred of his Batman v Superman movie, SFX quotes his words.
“The studio had a hatred for Batman v Superman. They put pressure on me. They forced me to make the film separate and not related to “Batman v Superman”, which I did not want to do and which I did not, ” he said.
Snyder added that he originally envisioned this project as a trilogy that will prepare viewers for the next five films about the Darkseid invasion.
Batman v Superman was released in 2016. The film is a sequel to the Superman film “Man of Steel”. Both comic book characters appeared on the silver screen together for the first time.
Earlier, Zach Snyder refused to make films based on comics. According to the director, despite the interest in some comics, he does not want to plunge into the world of superheroes and save the universe again. “I’m not eager to do another comic book movie,” Snyder said.
