  • Batman v Superman (23:55)
    • Zack Snyder prefers Ben Affleck over Christian Bale because “Batman’s a big dude”
      • “He’s a great Batman, but he’s still 5’10”
      • Not being rude, just prefers bulkier batman
  • Rebel Moon (27:30)
    • Zack Snyder on Joe Rogan Experience: “So say right now [‘Rebel Moon’] has almost 90 million views … 90 million starts or 90 million accounts turned it on, give or take. They assume two viewers per screening,”
    •  “So you think if that movie was in the theaters as a distribution model, that’s 160 million people supposedly watching, based on that math.”
    • “More people probably saw ‘Rebel Moon’ than saw ‘Barbie’ in the theater. That’s how crazy Netflix — that’s the distribution model they set up,” Snyder concluded.
    • Big assumptions: viewers = viewed minutes divided by runtime; assuming 2 viewers per screening is a non-confirmed assumption; streaming vs theaters is apples to oranges
    • In the end, both Rogan and Snyder praised Barbie, just thinks his movie would’ve performed better
