He told The New York Times that he knew earlier than BvS, ‘once we made Man of Steel’, that the common audiences hadn’t taken to his imaginative and prescient for superheroes with the identical enthusiasm that they’d for Marvel motion pictures. He mentioned, “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.”
