Wonder Woman, Batman And Superman On The Cover Of Famous Monsters

Famous Monsters magazine returns in February with a cover that features DC’s trinity of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman along with an interview with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder. There is also a Rick Baker variant cover that celebrates the 35th anniversary of An American Werewolf in London.

Here is some excerpts from the interview with Snyder done by FM Editor David Weiner:

From dealing with intense fan scrutiny to the challenges of expanding the big-screen DC Extended Universe, BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE director Zack Snyder pulls the curtain back on his thought process and how it all connects to the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE movie in our Official FM Interview.

CREATING A BELIEVABLE TITLE-CHARACTER MATCH-UP: “The discovery of the story is that Batman fights Superman. Now move your superhero chess pieces so that can happen. And it can happen in a credible and interesting way. … It’s just incredibly satisfying and fun to dig into these two mythological characters and find a through line that allows them to come into conflict in a way that not only is philosophically satisfying, but also physically real.”

REGARDING BEN AFFLECK’S OLDER, WISER BATMAN: “He’s not yet tired of his place in the world. He’s definitely still tooth-and-nailing it.”

REACTING TO CRITICISM OF EXCESSIVE DESTRUCTION IN MAN OF STEEL: “I stand by it, because for me, I’ve always said when I was working on WATCHMEN — and maybe it’s sort of left over from a WATCHMEN philosophical sort of thing — that there should be consequences to superheroes’ interaction with the earth. And that was kind of the way that we approached MAN OF STEEL. I wanted a big consequence to Superman’s arrival on earth. Certainly, BATMAN v SUPERMAN sort of cashes in all its chips on the ‘why’ of that destruction.”
