“Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” director Zack Snyder said in a recent interview that he hates it when spoilers come out. He wants the audience to watch with anticipation, not knowing what happens next. The director also talked about what it was like to drive the new Batmobile.

“Of course I hate it when any spoilers come out,” Snyder told MTV. “You design the movie as a story that evolves as you watch it, so moment-to-moment [you’re thinking], ‘Oh my god, what’s going to happen next? Are they gonna live? Are they gonna die?’ So you want that experience for the audience, as much as you can,” he explained.

Snyder, however, understands that some people like to read spoilers and it depends on “individual taste.” In his personal opinion, he would like the audience to go into the theatres not knowing what happens in the movie.

The director also revealed that he took the Batmobile from “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” for a drive, when they were not filming. “I do get to get in it quite a bit, more than when we were filming which is funny,” he said.

While filming the movie, Snyder would apparently be “mad at it” and would ask the crew to move the Batmobile to a specific location for the scene. After filming the relevant scenes, however, the vehicle becomes his “best friend” and he would “love it.”

“ I love the design of it. I love the thing, it drives like crazy. You can skid it around, it’s like a frickin’ race car,” Snyder said. The director also pointed out that the car was “super practical” when it came to filming some of the scenes in the movie.

“We did a huge chase with it and it drove, which is cool,” Snyder said. The Batmobile in “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” has a Corvette engine and it is the primary vehicle of the Caped Crusader.
