DC fans might love Henry Cavill's look as the DC Extended Universe's version of the Man of Steel, but it looks like fans aren't quite sure whether Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder totally understands superman.

Taking to Twitter, a fan decided to put up a hefty declaration saying that she believed that the DCEU director "understood Superman 100%" and from there fans all over decided to argue around to debate whether the filmmaker really understood the character.

Sure, Cavill might look great as the Man of Tomorrow, but there were a whole lot of fans who didn't like how Snyder wrote the character in Man of Steel. The narrative in Batman v Superman divided the fanbase as well, with many fans expressing their outrage over how Snyder had written Supes in the movie.

Man of Steel had a very different approach when it came to Superman. The film had a rather serious take on the Son of Krypton, and DC's boyscout was also given a rather serius demeanor.

"It's really this whole concept of branding criminals. The idea was that [Batman] had lost his own moral compass and he had become what he beheld. The whole idea of this movie is to create this arc where [Batman] confronts Superman's humanity, that he finds himself again," Snyder explained, "That's what the thesis of this thing is, that we're all humans and that we all connect on a level. Our mothers have the same name. That is really sort of this fundamental, ‘we both have a mother, so we are both human.' Even though Superman is from another planet, his connection to humanity is so clean that Batman is able to re-energize himself."
