It's no secret that "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" received mixed reactions from critics and fans alike upon its release earlier this year. Those critical of the film knocked it as a long, convoluted, mirthless slog. Many placed the blame for the movie's failings squarely on director Zack Snyder. The filmmaker received a hearty dose of derision, and now, cast member Amy Adams, who reprised her role as Lois Lane, has spoken out about the movie's bad press.
During an interview on Variety's "Playback" podcast, the actress discussed her thoughts on acting and working with the industry's biggest names. She then went into her opinion on the "BvS" controversy, and the state of the DC Films universe. She was optimistic that they would bounce back from the harsh critiques, and said that cast on the set of "Justice League" was "really excited."
The criticsim, she felt, "hit a soft spot," and when it came the attacks on Snyder, she expressed some heartfelt sympathy. "I just felt for Zack," Adams said. "Zack's like the nicest person ever, and to see him kind of talked about like that was really hard for me, because he’s really such a respectful director."
Amy Adams will next appear as Lois Lane in "Justice League," currently slated for release on November 17, 2017. The film, also directed by Zack Snyder, stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher.
