Charles Roven Discusses The More "Adult" Themes Of DC's Movies Compared To Marvel's
Saying that they have yet to choose a title for Batman Vs. Superman, Man of Steel and The Dark Knight Trilogy producer Charles Roven comments on how DC's movies explore different themes to Marvel's, ones he believes are ultimately more adult in nature. Read on for details!
b>On The Relation Between Dramas And CBM's:
"Whatever the kind of movie you do you should strive for those themes and nuances exactly. I think they make the films more meaningful. I always try, not always succeed, in doing films that examine in their own way, even if they are entertainment, the human condition and the things that are important to all of us. I am actually glad that you noticed that because it is an important aspect of the movies that I try to make."
On How Warner Bros.' DC Movie Compare To Marvel's:
"I think that ‘Man of Steel’ played younger, to a wider audience. Even though Chris’s trilogy was more successful financially, I think you should be older to appreciate the full aspect of it. In that regard I would say that ‘Man of Steel’ played younger than that. I can’t speak for the Marvel comics. I certainly believe that they have done a great job in being very successful in what they are doing so they should continue. One of the things that I like in terms of what they are doing vs. what we are doing is that the movies are different. When you see what Zack Snyder or Chris Nolan is making in this genre, one that I am producing with Emma Thomas or Deborah Snyder, we go for certain themes that are slightly more adult even though they are very universal."
On The Batman Vs. Superman Title:
"I think that when we have the title, we will announce it. [Laughs]"
