Kevin Smith Shares His Thoughts On Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Kevin Smith is a long-time comic fan and has been avidly tracking the progress of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice to the screen. Plus, he has worked with and is still close with one of the stars (Ben Affleck), and also has a working relationship with Warner Bros./DC Entertainment.

Smith was refreshingly honest and forthright when outlining his many issues with the follow up to Man of Steel while discussing it on his podcast. He said “The movie, I felt like, didn’t really have a heart. It was certainly fucking humorless. There was nothing funny going on in that world whatsoever, but it had lots of spectacle. Like you can’t take that away from Snyder. Boy, he knows how to compose a frame and how to setup a shot. Beautiful visual stylist. But you need more than just pictures. You need the characterization and these characters seemed off character, particularly Superman”. There seems to be a fundamental lack of understanding of what those characters are about. It’s almost like Zack Snyder didn’t read a bunch of comics, he read one comic once, and it was Dark Knight Returns, and his favorite part was the last part where Batman and Superman fight. But … you get to do that in that book because you’ve got three books prior to that and 50 years at that point of comic-book history to build on”.
