Zack Snyder says his son isn’t Robin, talks ‘Batman v Superman’, DCEU, and more

Today Zack Snyder and Doritos announced that they’re teaming up for a Super Bowl commercial contest in 2016. For the last several years Doritos has held contests where filmmakers could submit Doritos commercials to be played during the big game. Next year in addition to having their work shown in front of millions of people around the world, the Doritos Super Bowl commercial winner will also get to work along side Snyder on an upcoming Justice League movie.

Snyder spoke to Yahoo about the contest, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the DCEU, and more. Here are some of the highlights:

There are so many rumors about the DC Universe. What are the craziest you’ve heard?
There are so many, it’s insanity. It’s funny because every now and then someone will touch on something that’s kind of true, but the next thing they say makes me realize that they took a wild guess. They’ll say something and I’ll say “Oh snap, they must have seen the script.” And then they’ll say, “And this happens!” And then I’ll go,They have no idea what they’re talking about. It’s fun for everyone to speculate and take shots and think of things and try to sell it. There’s an industry in selling your guess. [People think], “I’m going to make a fake script and look like I read the real one.” What length are you willing to go?

There’s a rumor that my son is [playing] Robin. It’s not true. Now there are all these images of him that people have made where he’s dressed like Robin. It’s fun to hear and see them.

You’re overseeing such a big, big universe, with Wonder Woman and Aquaman and other films. How do you handle overseeing them all?
I’m staying with Batman V Superman and Justice League and Justice League 2 — those are my main responsibilities, as well as producing the other movies. That’s the main line. Once you get Justice League, you’re pretty deep in it. But like I was saying, not to be a selfless promoter of our program, what it shows is that we have this giant berth of opportunity with the DC movies now to I think find the opportunities for even young filmmakers to even get involved because there are so many projects.
