The reviews for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice have been a mixed bunch. Some loved, some thought it was okay, and some hated it. Many reviewers are taking the gloves off and taking what seems like extra swings at the movie for whatever reason.

All of those reviews do make their way to cast members of the film and in this case have warranted a response when prompted.

“The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions,” Henry Cavill tells Yahoo!, “And the thing about personal opinions is that they always come from a place. And there’s a preconceived idea which you have to get past a critic before you start writing your article or your review, and that affects everything.”

“What is really going to matter, I believe, is what the audience says,” the Superman actor goes on, “Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story or not and so the audience’s voice is loudest and after this weekend the audience, at least partly, will have spoken.”

While Ben Affleck was brief, only saying he agrees with Cavill's comments, Cavill's movie-love Amy Adams offered up some opinion on the matter.

“I know that Zack [Snyder] doesn’t make the movies - or none of us - are making the movies for the critics,” Adams says. “You can’t go into it with that perspective. I know we really hope the fans like it and so far the reaction has been really positive on that front.”

Dawn of Justice's director, Zack Snyder, also weighed in on the issue.

"I'm a comic book guy and I made the movie as much as I can on that aesthetic," he says.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters tonight.

    I feel so unbelievably sorry for these fine folks to have to answer these questions. We can all thank Snyder for making their great efforts to portray legendary icons turn into flavor of the week TV movie action heroes.

  1. so true. PREACH cavil. dumb critics know nothing

  2. You shouldn't have to play damage control before your flm even opens to wide audiences. This is sad. You have your vast telling fans to form their own opinion on a film this monumental?? What?! I don't blame the actors, I blame Snyder. New captain for the ship please

    Agreed.  Snyder has successfully done what no other director, writer, or producer has even dared to accomplish.
