    Zack Snyder on Male Moviegoers and His Subversive Sucker Punch: 'We Are the People in the Brothel' | Movieline

    That brings up another gender-specific question: Is Sucker Punch an empowering movie for women or is it intended more for men?

    In a weird way… I took out “Love is a Drug” and put it in the credit sequence. If you get the DVD it’s in the movie, you’ll see it in the film where it was intended. The reason I liked it, but was afraid that teenage boys wouldn’t get it, was because it sets up this super fun world where they’re singing and dancing — and yeah, you feel like there’s prostitution going on but it also feels kind of fun and cool. And then at the very end of the sequence you see Babydoll crying. These girls are upset, and you’re like, “What?” I love the idea that it’s this beautiful world of titillation and it’s fun and has musical numbers, but in the end people suffer for that.

    It’s a gilded cage for the women.

    Exactly, and it’s not without consequence. It felt like the fun of it was so fun that people would miss that, that it would just seem fun. And I couldn’t do that.

    And the viewers who’d miss the point the most would primarily be the male audience?

    Yeah, they’d be like, “Why are they so upset? It’s awesome to be a whore!” And I’m like, no, that’s not the point. So that’s why I moved it to the very end.

    The point being that these young women are taking back the submissive, fetishized female archetypes.

    Well in the end, I hope that’s what happens. In the end, you put them in those costumes and now they’re using them against you — that’s basically what Baby does to Blue in a lot of ways. The metaphor there is he puts her in that role and she starts knocking the dominoes over that lead to his destruction.
