Zack Snyder, 49, who is currently working on 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' addressed filmmaker Steven Spielberg's comments that the superhero genre ultimately will go the way of the Western, reported Entertainment Weekly.
"I feel like he's right. But I feel like 'Batman' and 'Superman' are transcendent of superhero movies in a way, because they're Batman and Superman.
"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'?"
Snyder said he considers both, Superman and Batman to be the "most" mythological superheroes.
"I look at it as more being mythological than, say, bubblegum. And I think that that's appropriate for Batman and Superman because they're the most mythological of our superheroes," he said.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg among others. The movie is scheduled to release on March 25, 2016.
