The 10th Crash the Super Bowl contest will make its final appearance during the big game and three lucky finalists have been vying for consumer votes over the past weeks to win the grand prize.

One finalist ad (based on most votes) will air during the Super Bowl and win the creator a $1 million grand prize and the opportunity to collaborate with Zack Snyder on a future DC Entertainment film.

Because Crash the Super Bowl also marks the 50th anniversary of the Doritos brand and the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, Doritos is shaking up the contest this year. The two other finalists will each win a $100,000 prize and opportunity to consult on an upcoming Doritos project.

We had the chance to talk to Zack Snyder about the fun initiative, his upcoming movie 'Batman vs. Superman', the Super Bowl and more.

Q: The Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest is always fun, but how much have you enjoyed being a part of it?

A: It's been amazing opportunity for us because I was the commercial director. They came to us and asked if I'd be interested in a mentorship with these guys and I said absolutely. When it cmmes to making spots, I was able to help with my filmmaking. It's great. I'm gonna be with them to win $1 million dollars and it's a life changing event. I'm pretty excited.

Q: Are you a big sports fan?

A: I'm a pretty big sports fan. My son plays football at UCLA and I'm a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan. So, for me, pretty much every Sunday includes football.

Q: What's your favorite thing about sports?

A: Football is my favorite thing to watch. I played soccer in high school, so I'm a big soccer fan too. Oh, and I played badminton too.

Zack Snyder through the years:



Q: The upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman' movie looks amazing. How anxious are you for it to come out?

A: You know what, I'm super proud of it. I feel like the icons you're dealing with at this level are so fun. You're going into uncharted territory with each character because nobody has ever seen them duke it out at this level. Also, not to mention the fact that once we got to the idea of Batman and Superman in same universe, it allowed a cool transition.

Q: Did you think that idea would be a success right away?

A: I'm very much of the mindset that it's real exciting. I couldn't imagine a more amazing opportunity if you love comic books and want to see if come to life, in my opinion.

Q: Was this easier to create than 'Man of Steel'?

A: I don't wanna say easier, but it was more natural. The true adversaries, the drive of the movie was really easy. It was really fun.

Q: It was cool to put a serious spin on 'Superman', much like how Christopher Nolan did with 'Batman.' Or do you not see it that way?

A: I think, for me, it was my take, my point of view. The relationship and what I wanted to achieve for Superman was to legitimize him with new a millennium. What Chris did with Batman, you feel like he exists now, what I consider, he consists in pop culture.

Q: Do you have a Super bowl prediction?

A: I don't know. I'm a fan of both teams. It's hard for me because I don't have a dog in the race. I'm a huge Peyton Manning fan, but it's hard to say how it'll go down.

Q: Which quarterback is more like Superman or Batman?

A: I think if you're going to characterize these two, Cam is definitely Superman and Peyton is definitely Batman. Definitely strong parallels. Verizon Wireless customers will able to stream Super Bowl 50 live on Go90. Download the new app now!
