Movie.ie, a film news site out of Ireland, conducted an interview with Zack Snyder on Sucker Punch, with the director explaining just what he intended the film to be - and that it flew over the heads of about 90% of movie critics.
Snyder said he was looking for more of a reaction from the fanboys, saying that they would get it and at the same time wouldn't, which would lead to conflict. While it seemed as if there were no consequences - there actually were.
"That was the fun of the movie, starting to draw in the consequences as the movie got further down. Just draw it in and draw it in," said Snyder.
Snyder also talked about Superman.
He said it is ironic that Superman, for him, is going to be the most realistic movie that he does. He feels that Superman in previous movies has been "apple pie and Chevrolet" - and what he is doing is going to take Superman and bring him to our world.
"I never felt like a movie should exist in the real world before, but I feel like Superman should. We've designed the movie that we shoot on location a lot, in real settings with real situations, because I feel like the most realistic movie I'll make is with Superman in it."
"All the Superman movies that have been made exist in some weird stylized world where everyone's, like, apple pie and Chevrolet and it's, like, madness. It's like the American Dream in a weird way."
Snyder went on to say what he finds interesting is, "being able to release the character from that world, where he's been stuck and shackled, and bring him to our world and see what he does."
