I Heard Decay

As the heavens will fall, we will be together soon. If we will be anything at all.

When did optimism become a bad thing? Modern filmmakers are bent on taking popular, existing properties and bringing out the darkest and grittiest aspects they can find and making that their story. When directors look at a character like Superman, they’re not saying, “Hey, I’d like to tell a story about this guy in blue and red spandex who loves America and punches bad guys and smiles and is handsome!” They’re saying, “Sure, Superman, but what makes him angry? I want to focus on the stuff that depresses him, I want to see Superman as a badass. What if Superman was a dick? That’s the movie I want to make, because even though I’m making a Superman movie, I don’t actually care for the character. My name is Zack Snyder.”
