Believe Ride About

I believe that pop culture is just, like, so ready for 'Watchmen.' We tried so hard to ride that wave between satire and reality, and all the things that make you still care about the character, but you don't miss the commentary about them.

Alien Other About

The thing about owls is that they do sort of have this facial disc, which is unlike any other bird. They kind of have a face, more than like a dog or a giraffe. They have this weird, alien face that you can actually make expressive.

- Zack Snyder

Cross Second Symbol

I heard one time that the Superman glyph is the second or third most recognizable symbol on Earth after the Christian cross.

- Zack Snyder

Book Country Brothers

I always say, I'm certain I changed 'Watchmen' less than the Coen brothers changed 'No Country for Old Men.' I'm certain of it. But you don't hear the Cormac McCarthy fans, like, up in arms about it. They should be. It's like an amazing Pulitzer Prize-winning book.

- Zack Snyder

Love Reason Motion

I love the irony of movies. I really do. For whatever reason, I'm incredibly intrigued by the irony of reality in a motion picture.

- Zack Snyder

Song Like About

'Watchmen' is like the music you feel is written just for you. 'That's my song, no one else gets that but me.' That's why the fan base is so rabid, because they feel personal about it.

- Zack Snyder

Straightforward Pretty

I write in a pretty straightforward way. I kind of sit down at page one and start writing.

- Zack Snyder

Deep Doing Why

I understand the rules of Superman - not necessarily better than anyone else - but better than a normal filmmaker would. After doing 'Watchmen' and digging that deep into the why of superheroes, when Superman is presented to you, I felt like I was in a unique position to say 'I get this guy. I know what this is.'

- Zack Snyder

Help Think Aesthetic

I think I just have a natural operatic aesthetic. I can't help it.

- Zack Snyder

Think Aesthetic Depend

Of course it would depend on the project, but I don't think I could ever separate myself from my aesthetic.

- Zack Snyder

Focus Quick Plane

The eyes get lost in 3-D. With 3-D, your eyes are looking for the plane of focus, right? And the problem is, when you do quick cuts, your eyes can't find it.

- Zack Snyder

Process Like Movie

I'm interested in animation. I actually feel like I've learned so much about the process how to make an animated movie.

- Zack Snyder

Always Go Metal

My mom always encouraged me, it was never weird. She'd look at 'Heavy Metal' and go 'Woo-hoo!'

- Zack Snyder

Committee Hollywood Feels

It's difficult to find a movie that feels true to itself. You feel the hand of Hollywood, the moviemaking by committee, on everything.

- Zack Snyder

Process Running Very

When I make a live-action movie, it's a very physical process. It's like running a marathon.

- Zack Snyder

Work Art Hugely

You know, it's a hugely difficult thing to take any work of art or drawing and say 'make that real.'

- Zack Snyder

Suburbs Exactly The Same

It's interesting now that basically a CG set is the same cost as a real set. So like if you're going to build a CG house in the suburbs, it costs you $200,000. And if you were going to build it in a computer, it'll cost you $200,000. It's the same... the relationship is exactly the same.

- Zack Snyder

Pillars Been Movie

We tried to approach this as though there's never been a Superman movie before, but at the same time respecting the canon and mythology. There are the pillars that you have to respect, and I'm not about to break them. But it is fun for me to bend them and mess with them.

- Zack Snyder

Studio Making Movie

The problem is, when you're making an animated movie, the studio has an illusion in their minds - and it's really not true - that because it's a drawing, it can be changed at any time.

- Zack Snyder

Book Movie Got

The challenge with 'Watchmen' is making sure that the ideas that were in the book got into the movie. That was my biggest stretch. I wanted people to watch the movie and get it. It's one of those things where, over time, it has happened more.
