The Batman v Superman world non-apology tour continues this week as producer Deborah Snyder—Zack's wife—attempts to hype up those superhero solo films coming out over the next few years. In a new interview with Forbes (link below), Snyder promises an injection of youthful vitality in The Flash movie, which looks to heavily feature Ray Fisher's Victor Stone, aka Cyborg.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad has such an amazing, brash tone. It’s fun and it’s about the villains, and it’s super-different than Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, which is an origin story and tells her story. As you can imagine, when we get to the Flash movie, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher — who plays Cyborg — are kind of our youngest characters, and they have a really nice comradery (sic) with each other. Ezra is super funny, so the tone of that film will be very different than the rest of them.
Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves here, Deb. We already know that Suicide Squad wasn't all that much "fun" until Warner Brothers decided to pay for expensive reshoots. The most disconcerting section of the interview, however, concerns her thoughts on her husband's worst film, Sucker Punch, where she once more tries to angle the film as some sort of feminist allegory...
Sucker Punch is hilarious because, you know, there are people who report it as “the biggest flop flop that Zack has done in his career,” yet there are so many people — especially women — for whom it’s their favorite film. And, you know, someone actually did a paper at Harvard analyzing the movie. When it first came out, I think people didn’t even realize– a lot of people thought it was sexist, and we were like, “They missed the whole point! It’s the opposite of what that is!” It was analyzing where women are in society, films, and video games — it’s that culture, you know?
Should've stopped talking after the fourth word there, Deb. In fact, look how easy it is to take that quote out of context. When asked about her husband's most notorious film, Deborah Snyder had this to say, "Sucker Punch is hilarious..."
