Zack Snyder Doesn’t Get Why Fans Hate Him

Of course Zack Snyder recognizes that not every audience would enjoy his films, he recently acknowledged his confusion over how to deal with the reality that some opponents appear to despise him personally, in addition to their distaste for his films.

Snyder, who has created so many films in the superhero genre, theorized that one of the reasons moviegoers may dislike him is because of how passionate they are about superheroes.

So, handling any project in which he deviates from expectations may result in audience displeasure that extends beyond the picture itself. In this way, he showed his complete understanding of that desire for the superhero genre, as he shares the same excitement.

Snyder recently did an interview with Joe Rogan and this interview has gone viral as you might expect. People all over the internet have their opinions about it:

From comicbook.com:

“I remember the last article said, ‘Zack Snyder: Love him or hate him.’ And I’m like, ‘Hate him?!’ I don’t understand. What? It’s a movie,” Snyder recently recalled on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. “I have no issue with you not liking the movie. That’s not the question. Who cares? The thing is, you’d hate me? I don’t understand that.”

He continued, “That’s a lifestyle choice for a lot of people. It’s not a movie … If I made a romantic comedy, you’d be like, ‘OK, that was fun.’ I love that [fans] feel this passionately. In no way would I criticize that, because I live the same life. For me, it’s morning, noon, and night. For those guys, it’s not just a movie. So you have to, on some level, you have to acknowledge that this is their religion. And they feel strongly about it. The truth is — it’s my religion, too.”
