Sebastian Stan is firing back at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder over comments he made dissing Marvel and its movies.
The director said that the Batman and Superman characters are “transcendent of superhero movies… They’re not just, like, the flavor of the week ‘Ant-Man’ — not to be mean, but whatever it is. What is the next Blank-Man?”
Sebastian, who stars in the Captain America movies, responded to the comments in a new interview with Collider.
“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,’” Sebastian said. “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.”
