"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" producer Charles Roven revealed more footage from the film is on the way during a recent interview with Collider. He also offered some insight into how the film creates character who are both aspirational and inspirational, addressed the concern that the film will be too overcrowded and more.
"Honestly, you're going be seeing something very soon," he shared. "I don't know how you define soon but certainly before the end of the year, how about that?"
Roven also addressed the idea of superhero fatigue by explaining how the characters and inter-connectivity will keep viewers engaged. "I think like any genre, the movies have to be good and you have to keep the audience engaged. One of the things that we're doing when we're bringing together the DC Justice League Universe is we're creating not only stories that work for the individual film but they have some resonance to the other films that we're doing. And I'm hoping that what's also gonna keep the interest very keen is we're telling hopefully compelling stories."
"I mean, one of the great things about dealing with superheroes in general, at least from our standpoint, is they're both inspirational and aspirational characters," he continued, "So you're hoping that the audience is gonna want to be like some of them but you're also hoping that the audience can relate to some of them, that if we make their stories compelling and relatable, interesting and emotional, that you're going to really want to spend more time with them. So you talk about Man of Steel and I felt that Clark's relationship with both of his fathers was pretty emotional and you can relate; certainly people who lost a loved one can relate, and we all have at some point in our lives lost loved ones. So I think, even with 'Batman v Superman,' we wanna have characters that touch us, and if we can continue to make films like that, the I think they're sort of 'genre proof.'"
"We tried [to make it all feel real] when we brought it here, when Zod came here, we wanted to make sure that we followed that. We actually talked about what would that technology translate to here. And I think you'll see in 'Batman v Superman' we stayed true to that, we were attempting to stay true to that, how are things affecting Superman here. Batman is still human, he's not Meta, he's just a human. Wonder Woman is Meta, if you will, although some might think that she's a God," he added.
As to the growing concern that the film will be overstuffed with characters, he said, "I don't think that's an issue for this film at all... I think that the film is called 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,' so there's a reason it's called 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and not 'Dawn of Justice: Batman v Superman.' So you're gonna invest mostly in 'Batman v Superman' and I think that you'll find other characters in there that you hopefully will want to see more of."
