'Batman v Superman' Director Zack Snyder Outlines Man of Steel's New Challenges
Apparently, it's not easy being Superman.
Talking about what Henry Cavill's last son of Krypton has been doing in the time between 2013's Man of Steel and this month's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, director Zack Snyder told DC All Access that he's been exactly what fans would expect of him.
"He's been righting wrongs," the director explained. "There have been floods, mines have collapsed, bridges have collapsed, churches have caught on fire. He's basically been a hero." But that's not been easy in the modern world, apparently.
"He's starting to see that every action has a reaction," Snyder revealed. "Like, if you're just taking a cat out of a tree, you can't touch anything or the arborists will say, 'He damaged the tree branch when he got the cat down.' Or, 'The cat wasn't neutered, so now there's thousands of cats.' There's no winning anymore for Superman."
No winning? That doesn't sound like a good sign for the Man of Steel as he heads into his head-to-head bout with the Dark Knight, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just weeks away from its March 25 release. On the other hand, if anyone can bounce back from depression, it's someone who can leap tall buildings in a single bound.
