In a recent interview with Collider, The Winter Soldier, AKA Sebastian Stan dropped a bomb on Batman v Superman director, Zack Snyder. Last week Snyder stated that his superhero movie, being released March 2016, was a much more serious movie than Marvel's "flavour of the week Ant-man," dismissing any value the movies have.
So he hated on the highest grossing movie series in history. Nice move.
However, Sebastian Stan has made his move:
Yeah, I’m sitting here and I’m listening to you and I’m thinking, “Do I want to fire some shots at DC right now, at Zack Snyder?” I read some of those comments where he said something about Batman and Superman, I can’t remember where I read that, somewhere… Something about, “It’s not going to be your flavor-of-the-week Ant-Man.” And I was like, “Oh thanks, Zack. That’s great. Way to do something original.” But I would say we’re still making something very original in our own way. I mean, the Russos are coming in and taking something people are used to and they’re shaping it up and changing it in a very different way.
But that wasn't all. The best part of all of that and the comment which, in this respondents opinion, should cut Snyder up, Stan stated,
They’re [Marvel] not trying to mimic a better Christopher Nolan movie or something like that.
Yes he said it. Something many fans have been saying in a long time.
Don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to this Man of Steel 'sequel.' But as far as dismissive Marvel comments go, this come-back, hits the nail on the head.
