The Winter Soldier Takes Out Zack Snyder

||

winter-soldierLast week the internet was going nuts over comments by Zack Snyder where he called Ant Man a flavor of the week superhero movie. It was a knock against Marvel’s lighter style by the guy who’s currently shepherding DC’s movie universe, and it was honestly a pretty unimaginative comment.

Now The Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan, responded to Snyder with an epic execution during an interview with Collider:

“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. They’re not trying to mimic a better Christopher Nolan movie or something like that.””

Ouch. That’s a pretty awesome way to respond, seeing as how Snyder’s DC movies really are trying to mimic the Nolan Batman style of making them super dark, gritty, and realistic. Epic kill!
