At this point, we all know about Zack Snyder’s ‘Snyder Cut’. Now he will get the opportunity to complete his vision for a director’s cut of 2017’s Justice League. Out of the many things that Snyder plans/planned for his version of the DCEU, Superman struggling with his moral compass is one of them.

Recently, Snyder spoke with Grace Randolph about the idea of an “Evil Superman.” He was asked why seeing a bad version of the Man of Steel appeals to fans, Snyder explained:

“Do I love the evil Superman? I’m not 100 percent that that’s true other than I love the idea of Superman going on a journey with his character. I love the idea of Superman having to reconcile his morality, reconcile his place on Earth, reconcile his love affair with Lois and how that affects, y’know, the way he relates to humanity […] as we all do with the normal relationships we all have in our daily lives.”

He continued:

“When we see Superman grapple with those things, he becomes a lot more relatable. When I see Superman having to figure out, like, what to do, I now can go ‘Wow, if I was Superman, I can see’. Because, y’know, Superman is such an abstract character. In his powers and what he’s able to do, any time you can bring him back down to earth, he becomes a lot more relatable. I think for that reason, a lot more interesting.”

Snyder confirmed that he respects Superman’s moral code and says that:

“In the end, he has to achieve that pinnacle.”
