BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Director Zack Snyder Reveals Why We Got A Darker Man Of Steel

With the COVID-19 pandemic ravaging the globe, filmmakers and celebrities are getting creative. On Sunday morning, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder held a live commentary, offering insight into the Ultimate Edition of his widely loved comic book adaptation (by fans, anyway). 

We've already broken down some key reveals from Snyder, but thanks to Screen Rant, we now know why the Man of Steel was painted in an almost villainous light at one point in the film. 

As the site explains, "at one point during the beginning of the brawl, Superman is shown from Batman's perspective, hence why the Man of Steel suddenly looked more ruthless and dangerous." In other words, we were meant to be seeing Superman from the Dark Knight's point of view, and it was clear from the start he viewed Kal-El as a dangerous threat.

It now makes sense why Superman had what appeared to be a drastically different attitude during this vicious brawl, which saw Batman attempt to kill Metropolis's Kryptonian protector. The Caped Crusader was going to deliver a killing blow to his foe, but the mention of Martha and a timely intervention from Lois Lane made sure that never came to pass. 

There are clearly still a lot of secrets to decipher in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Snyder has now cleared up a lot of them, including that big Knightmare sequence set in the future!

And what about when Superman said "I'll take you in without breaking you"?

Did Batman just imagine him saying that?

@Nightwing1015 - didn't he say that to lex ?

@hazapez - Yes he did. But it's a line that we would never hear comic book Superman say. It's a line that shows this darker take on the character is real; not something Bruce simply imagined as Snyder is now suggesting.

When Batman and Superman stand nose to nose and superman says you don’t understand to watch Batman replies I understand, would like to know what was cut from after Bruce says “I understand”. What more did he stay to get Clark to send him flying.

Also woudl still like to see clark losing his mind while unable to find Martha among the millions of voices.

Oh well will probably get it in the 10th anniversary edition I mean Batman V superman like it or not our generations blade runner just as I predicted

@TheJustinHammer - not at all. Film continues to reach audiences it continues to spark Discussion and debate. And here we are four years later it’s still in the public conscious.

For Pete’s sake you are on a website talking about BVS responding to me.

@CurlyBill - Imagine comparing BvS a movie that copies every comic book trope in the book, from the bad guy mad scientist, to action figure superheros fighting each other before joining together to fight the main baddie at the end, down to sequel baiting, and comparing it to Blade Runner, that gave birth to Cyberpunk in modern cinema. How completely delusional can a person get? lol.

@Comicbookart - Based on box office the general audience really didn’t much care for blade runner either

Just us film fanatics and comic book fans I’ll do the same for BVS
