NYT: Do you see the DC heroes on a grand level, like characters from Wagner or "Lord of the Rings"?
Zack Snyder: It's obvious I take these characters and their mythology really seriously. I want them to be fully realized as characters, existing in that world. I don't think that it's cool to have fun at their expense. And there was a vision that we had, a complete universe, fully fleshed out, that we really wanted to take all the way.
NYT: Was that to draw an intentional contrast with what Marvel is doing in its movies?
Snyder: I knew it before "BvS," when we made "Man of Steel." Marvel is doing something else. They're doing, at the highest level, this popular action-comedy with a heart. And they have that nailed. An effort to duplicate that is insanity because they're so good at it. What DC had was mythology at an epic level, and we were going to take them on this amazing journey. Frankly, I was the only one saying that.
