MEL GIBSON CALLS BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN A “PIECE OF S–T”
In a discussion with Deadline, Gibson said he disliked when studios create massively expensive blockbusters. “Do you know what the difference between real superheroes and comic-book superheroes is?” he asked the reported. “Real superheroes didn’t wear spandex. So I don’t know. Spandex must cost a lot.”
