During an interview with the The Wrapthe director – who nearly directed the sequel to ‘steel man‘ – spoke about the matter, saying that the decision was “a mistake”.
“I just thought it was a mistake to put the Batman vibe in the Superman world. I just think they’re two separate things – they’re just not identifiable in any way, in my mind. This should be fun.
