The Trinity Grace the Cover of February’s Famous Monsters


Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are set to appear on the cover of Famous Monsters next month along with an exclusive interview with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder.

It’s an interesting interview where Snyder covers a few subjects regarding both Batman v Superman, the DC Extended Universe and the criticism on all that destruction at the end of Man of Steel.

Regarding the big fight between the titular characters:

“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.”

On the amount of 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.”

I, for one, am glad Synder stands by his choices. Man of Steel may be a bit dark, but I actually enjoyed it. It’s also good to see that Batman v Superman will deal with the consequences of Superman’s battle with Zod and subsequent destruction of Metropolis.
