'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' director Zack Snyder has blasted movies like 'Ant-Man', describing them as the "flavour of the week"

Zack Snyder thinks 'Ant-Man' is merely the "flavour of the week".

The 49-year-old director - who's helming the much-hyped 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' - has claimed the superheros in his movie have a timeless quality that few other comic book characters can boast.

Asked about Steven Spielberg's suggestion that "there will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the Western", Zack said: "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 flavour of the week 'Ant-Man' - not to be mean, but whatever it is. What is the next Blank-Man?"

Meanwhile, Zack also admitted his movie will features more scenes with Batman than Superman.

He told The Daily Beast: "Only in that because it's a different Batman than the Batman that was in the Chris Nolan movies, so we have a little bit more explaining to do and you just had a whole Superman movie.

"But I think only in that way, because you need to understand where Batman is with everything. And that's more toward the beginning, but it evens back out as it goes on."
