Batman v Superman’s Zack Snyder one of the few directors IMAX allows to use their cameras

Variety has a great article about new cameras that IMAX has developed, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder is one of the lucky few who gets to use them!

IMAX has been very selective about allowing filmmakers to use its cameras, limiting their use to a few A-list names such as Zack Snyder (“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”), Brad Bird (“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol”), Christopher Nolan (“Interstellar”) and J.J. Abrams (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”).

Snyder’s in good company there.

“The demand for our cameras has never been stronger,” said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “But we’ve had a supply/demand issue. In a very calculated way we held back the supply and that’s increased demand in a way that we haven’t been able to satisfy.”

Parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were shot in IMAX, and I think it’s safe to assume that Snyder will continue to use the large image format when he moves onto Justice League.
