He offered a clarification in this regard. In an interview with Gizmodo, he said, “What I was implying was, well, there are two things. One is I was just going by the numbers that I was given by Netflix. People are like, ‘Oh, well, Snyder’s crazy’ but literally I just am doing maths with this, not anything else. If now we’re close to 100 million viewers, 100 million views times two is 200 million views… So, people are like, ‘Snyder’s delusional,’ and I am just like ‘I don’t know what to tell you.’ The cultural significance of Barbie was happening when it was in the theatres. That’s when we all took a bite of the Barbie apple, and happily. And so my only point is that I think there is a theatrical zeitgeist even though maybe more people have eyes on something, the actual sort of cultural significance is dictated still by the theatre.
