It’s no secret, the critics don’t like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It’s currently sitting at 32% on Rotten Tomatoes. The cast is in the UK promoting the movie, and Yahoo asked for their thoughts on the negative reviews of the movie.
“The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions,” Henry Cavill said, “And the thing about personal opinions is that they always come from a place. And there’s a preconceived idea which you have to get past a critic before you start writing your article or your review, and that affects everything.”
“What is really going to matter, I believe, is what the audience says,” Cavill continued, “Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story or not and so the audience’s voice is loudest and after this weekend the audience, at least partly, will have spoken.”
I agree with Cavill 100%. I enjoyed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and thought that it was a big improvement over Man of Steel. The future of the Justice League universe will not be affected by reviews, it’s the audience’s opinion that matters most. It all comes down to how much money Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice makes at the box office.
Zack Snyder seemed genuinely hurt to talk about the bad reviews, and said “I’m a comic book guy and I made the movie based as much as I could on that aesthetic. And so I don’t know how else to do it 100%, so it is what it is.”
