I might love to speak concerning the mid-credits scene as a result of that was so large. After which it is irritating to see it leak, as a result of I would like folks to be as stunned as I used to be. 

Oh my God, it’s so irritating. You’re employed so arduous, however look, we perceive that this ending and this dream, this household dream that we needed to carry to life, we knew that it was going to impact the followers that have been similar to, “Oh my God!” We heard them begging for it for therefore lengthy. We have been wanting it for therefore lengthy. It is disappointing that it leaks. You hope that the followers which are so captivated with it actually do their finest to dam it out in order that they’ll go and get the film and revel in it. 

You do what you may to attempt to shield these conditions. However the fan base is so passionate and so captivated with the whole lot that offers with this world, they usually’re simply so dedicated to it that they discover methods of getting this data out. And sadly, there’s all the time a couple of folks that can attempt to spoil it for the remainder of the world. However hopefully, the followers bond collectively, know that they need to see the film, know that they actually need to go in and have a good time and be stunned as they watch it, and can do their finest to dam that stuff out. We have been working with Warner Bros. to attempt to get a few of these issues below management, however actually, it spreads like wildfire. It is one thing you all the time know it’s a must to take care of once you begin testing the film. And with an ending like that, that’s as massive as any coda second, I believe, that there is ever been in comedian guide film lore, it was all the time going to be arduous to maintain that factor locked out.

Do you assume perhaps even realizing that as a result of it is one thing that followers have wished for therefore lengthy that it truly would possibly drive extra folks to go see it? To see that second realizing it is coming?

You hope so. We poured our coronary heart and soul into this film from high to backside, and we actually wished to make a film that the followers could be thrilled with. DJ all the time has his finger on the heart beat. I all the time imagine the inspiration of why he has over 500 million social media followers, it is not simply due to who he’s, nevertheless it’s as a result of he is an individual that listens to the followers. And his total profession, his success has all the time been based in — he is an entity that loves the viewers, loves his interplay with the viewers, and loves listening to them.

So for us, we have been listening to them scream for this for ages, and we’re like, “What’s going on?” And we’re followers, too, so their sentiment matches ours. We wished the identical factor. So if we had the chance to make a DC character movie, which we did have the chance, one among our important targets was, “We have to maintain the followers. We have to maintain our bosses who’re the followers, and we all know what they need. We will do the whole lot we have now to do to make it come to life,” and we’re simply actually lucky that we have been capable of.
