Batman To Use Mostly Practical Effects In BATMAN V SUPERMAN

For their latest February issue, Empire Magazine talked to director Zack Snyder about his upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Snyder revealed that most of Batman's scenes were shot using practical effects and that he shot much of the film in IMAX.

In their latest February issue, Empire Magazine had a chance to catch up and speak with director Zack Snyder about his upcoming DC film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In the interview Snyder went on to talk about how incredibly different Batman is to Superman. "It has been really fun using Batman as the answer to Superman, because he's not flying around and acting crazy. He's just driving around in his Batmobile, doing his Batstuff." While a character like Superman would require quite a bit of computer generated magic, a character as human as Batman can be done practically and Zack Snyder loved it. "We were able to do a lot of this practically," says Snyder. "Batman brings that back. Figuring out how to mix Batman's practical approach with Superman has been an awesome experience..."

Snyder goes on to say that he wanted the visual aspect of the film to be better, that he wanted to "up-the-ante" even stating that he shot much of the film using an IMAX camera and how interested he was to take a different approach, "I'm not sure how long those cameras are going to be around. But I have never shot digitally." What do you think about Snyder's comments about having Ben Affleck's Batman mostly using practical effects? Are you excited to see Batman do his Batstuff?
