Mel Gibson, who is popular for "The Passion of the Christ," "The Beaver," among other blockbusters, is not a fan of the 2016 "Batman vs Superman."

“It’s a piece of s–t,” Gibson said to Deadline at the Venice Film Festival. “I’m not interested in the stuff. Do you know what the difference between real superheroes and comic-book superheroes is? Real superheroes didn’t wear spandex. So I don’t know. Spandex must cost a lot.”

Gibson who doesn't believe a good movie has to be expensive, also spoke on movies that cost $200+ million to produce.

“I look at them and scratch my head. I’m really baffled by it. I think there’s a lot of waste, but maybe if I did one of those things with the green screens I’d find out different,” Gibson said.

“It seems to me that you could do it for less… You’re spending outrageous amounts of money, $180 million or more, I don’t know how you make it back after the tax man gets you, and after you give half to the exhibitors.”

In the 2016 "Batman vs Superman," Clark Kent doesn't trust Gotham's mysterious masked vigilante. Bruce Wayne doesn't trust the alien who nearly destroyed Metropolis. And Lex Luthor, who hates Superman more than anyone, is manipulating both of them for his own twisted ends.

The movie received negative reviews from critics.
