What will differentiate the "work-in-progress" DC Cinematic Universe from the already established and super successful Marvel Cinematic Universe?
While many die-hard fans might know the answer to this question, latest statements by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder and actor Ben Affleck seem to confirm the differences and give an idea on what fans can expect from WB's upcoming superhero films.
"It is mоrе mythiс, it is mоrе grаnd in thаt wаy, аnd it is а littlе mоrе rеаlistiс," Affleck said of this approach to the DC Cinematic Universe. "Just by thеir nаturе, thеsе films саn't bе аs funny оr аs quiсk аnd аs glib аs Mаrvеl mоviеs." (via Entertainment Weekly)
The actor continued by explaining the mass destruction that played out in the Man of Steel climax (a sequence that was heavily criticised by fans and viewers).
"One of the things I liked was Zack's [director Zack Snyder] idea of showing accountability and the consequences of violence and seeing that there are real people in those buildings," he said. Affleck also revealed an interesting BvS tie-in, from that scene: "...And in fact, one of those buildings was Bruce Wayne's building so he knew people who died in that Black Zero event."
Meanwhile, Snyder shared an interesting piece of information about Wonder Woman's role in the film - and it's safe to say that her presence in the movie may be a lot more than just a glorified cameo.
"She plays a super-important part," Snyder told EW. "In a lot of ways, she's the gateway drug to the rest of the Justice League."
