Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cast react to the negative reviews

With the official release of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE less than a day away, many fans have been fixating on the rather lackluster reviews that the blockbuster has been receiving over the past few days. Many critics took aim at the films story, pacing, and dour tone, but it wasn't entirely doom and gloom as Ben Affleck's Batman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, and the overall visual spectacle received praise. The cast of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE are finally coming to the end of their whirlwind press-tour, just in time to respond to the negative reviews that the film has been receiving. While chatting with Yahoo Movies UK, several of the actors as well as BATMAN V SUPERMAN director Zack Snyder revealed their thoughts on critics. Henry Cavill has faith that the audience for whom this film was made will make their voices heard.

The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions, 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, 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.

Ben Affleck didn't have nearly as much to say, as he merely said that he agreed with Cavill's sentiments. Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane in the film, said that she knows that “Zack [Snyder] doesn’t make the movies - or none of us - are making the movies for the critics, you can’t go into it with that perspective. I know we really hope the fans like it and so far the reaction has been really positive on that front. If you’re interested in a film you should see it and form your own opinion rather than just going on the word of somebody [else]”. My goodness, what a complete and utter display of common sense. Movie reviews are fun to read, whether you agree with what the critics have to say or not, but at the end of the day, your own opinion is the only one that matters.

Zack Snyder doesn't seem all that bothered by the reviews, as he's very happy with the film regardless of what the critics think.

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.
