Zack Snyder has given an update on how things are progressing with
Batman vs. Superman
, revealing his excitement at seeing his titular heroes together for the first time.
"Even just Batman and Superman standing next to each other… " marvels Snyder. "It’s kind of epic. You do sort of sense the weight of the pop culture iconography jumping out of its skin when you’re standing there looking at the two of them and Wonder Woman."
"It’s crazy, but it’s fun. I mean, I have the first photo, I’ve got it in my archive because I was like, 'Okay, I better keep this, it’s gonna be worth something!'"
And with that level of excitement building, Snyder admits that the level of secrecy he needs to maintain can occasionally be a drag…
"I’m like, 'God, I want to send this to the Internet immediately,'" says Snyder, when talking about the new Batsuit. "But I know I’m not allowed to! I do value the sort of excitement of the way the film is revealed."
Co-starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, Batman vs. Superman will open in the UK on 6 May 2016.
