Zack Snyder is out promoting his new low-budget indie rom-com Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but he's still receiving flack for his last film, 2013's Man of Steel. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Snyder responded to the persistent criticism of his Superman flick's high death toll by comparing it to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which he argues massacred way more innocent people:

I went, really? And I said, well, what about ['Star Wars: The Force Awakens']?. In ‘Star Wars’ they destroy five planets with billions of people on them. That’s gotta be one of the highest death toll movies in history, the new ‘Star Wars’ movie, if you just do the math.
