BATMAN V SUPERMAN Director Zack Snyder Marks "Ultimate Edition" Debut On HBO Max With Awesome New Poster

Zack Snyder's Justice League will be released on HBO Max next year, and it appears as if the streaming service is gearing up for that by sharing the "Ultimate Edition" of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on the platform. That's around 30 minutes longer than the theatrical cut, and an arguably superior version of the DC Comics movie. 

In that, Clark Kent's hunt for Batman is expanded on, we spend more time with Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen in Africa, and that scene with Lex Luthor and Steppenwolf is added to the film. 

Now, director Zack Snyder has celebrated the launch of Batman v Superman on HBO Max by sharing an awesome new poster depicting the "Knightmare" version of Ben Affleck's Caped Crusader. That entire sequence is expected to be elaborated on in the "Snyder Cut," though it remains to be seen whether the meaning behind it will actually be explained in any way. 

Either way, Snyder is clearly back on good terms with Warner Bros., and for many fans, that will lead to them hoping the filmmaker could make some sort of return to the DC Extended Universe.

Ehh, I like it. I always like that Batman had to adjust and evolve to Darkseid taking over the world so he started using guns. Throwing batarangs at Parademons just wasn’t going to cut it.

Well...he primarily was using guns on Superman's cronies not Darkseid or Parademons. Those were just regular humans. He never needs to adjust to fighting mobs of humans by indiscriminately killing them with guns.



I don't get Zack's desire to force Batman to kill and use guns. He even claimed those who don't like it are living in a dream world. Well yeah, Batman isn't real-life or a documentary.

@WruceBayne - agree, although that doesnt help the parts of the movie where he has machine guns mounted on his batmobile and for sure killing people

@Humperdink - You know what...I came out of hiding just to comment on this shit.

THAT FIGHT SCENE IS TERRIBLE!!!! THERE ARE SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR THEM TO KILL HIM! I MEAN, JUST LOOK AT THE GIF!! AWFUL AND STUPID

@JohnnyAssCheeks - why fire a gun that is in your hand when you can hold onto it as you run towards someone??

@JohnnyAssCheeks - lol it's obvious than, they weren't trying to kill him at the same time trying not to get killed themselves, so they could deliver him to superman

@WruceBayne - He was over the whole gun thing well before the "Knightmare"

@Humperdink - Exactly. batman is cool because he hasn't let himself go down that dark hole. He is circling it but fights the darkness to kill.

"But but but...HE KILLED IN HIS EARLY ISSUES AND USED A GUN"

@inkniron - I guess... in your opinion what should he have done while in the Batplane?
WruceBayne
WruceBayne - 7/5/2020, 2:45 PM
@dracula - it evens the playing with bloodthirsty murders. Every single iteration of the batmobile had machine guns on it so Snyder’s take on it is pretty accurate in my opinion.
WruceBayne
WruceBayne - 7/5/2020, 2:48 PM
@Humperdink - well that particular scene he was ambushed in the back of that truck, outnumbered and fairly certain that he’s desperate at this point. Guns were at his disposal and pretty much the only logical choice. He didn’t have the shadows or the element of surprise that he’s used to.

@WruceBayne - that whole scene is just 'splosion porn. maybe master of stealth doesn't go blowing shit up so everyone miles away knows you're coming.
dracula
dracula - 7/5/2020, 3:33 PM
@WruceBayne - yes in the movie they tend to have guns on them, but he doesnt use them against people, and if he does in the comics its always non lethal rounds

@WruceBayne - Come on, mate. That's the writers fault for putting Bats in a killing spree situation. But I will play along...lets see.... rubber bullets? It could be tranquilizers? foam bombs? Maybe a decoy and tackle those guys from below? Electrified batarangs? Grapple gun all of them? Remote control the Batmobile as well? Smoke bombs?....literally dozens of ways of handling it, that doesnt not end up leaving those guys like charcoal swiss cheese.

WruceBayne - 7/5/2020, 3:46 PM
@inkniron - I absolutely agree with you that it was ‘splosion porn(I like that terminology by the way). I guess the scene called for it because they were shooting anti-aircraft guns that were strapped down to the bed of Dodge Rams(typing that makes it seem so ridiculous LOL)
WruceBayne
WruceBayne - 7/5/2020, 3:53 PM
@Elbarto63 - I get what your saying but aside from rubber bullets the rest of those don’t fit with the style of that particular movie. When we get into the realm of foam bombs and electrified batarangs it gets kind of cartoony. I do agree with you that the writers should have come up with an alternative way of dispatching the bad guys instead of blowing up a neighborhood in Gotham.
WruceBayne
WruceBayne - 7/5/2020, 3:54 PM
@dracula - I can agree with you on that.
inkniron
inkniron - 7/5/2020, 4:30 PM
@WruceBayne - The question is really....why did they have anti air defenses to begin with?
WruceBayne
WruceBayne - 7/5/2020, 5:24 PM
@inkniron - and that my friend is the million dollar question

@Humperdink - I mean in a scenario where the entire world is lost and he clearly has given up on saving that reality in favor going back in time and stopping Superman ever turning to be the underling of Darkseid in the first place why would he not kill them? At that point Batman was trying to keep that reality from existing at all so nothing he’d do would matter to him other than resetting things which we’ve got confirmation was the whole plan for him, Cyborg, and Flash at that point.

@dracula - That was my only issue with Batman’s portrayal was the Batwing and Batmobile turret stuff. Letting gonna die do to their own fault, smashing into cars and stuff, and even killing directly to save a life is fine for me but using machine guns from the safety of your bullet proof cockpit is just murder for no real reason.
Knightstar

@JohnnyAssCheeks - maybe those weren't their orders

Why is he in a trench coat again? And if you're going to wear a trench coat, what exactly is the cape for? What's the costume for actually?

@Nightwing1015 - I’m so glad that bothers someone else haha
JohnnyAssCheeks
JohnnyAssCheeks - 7/5/2020, 12:50 PM
@Nightwing1015 -

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I SAID!!!!!!!!!!!!







First of all, why is he even wearing a mask? Does it even matter people know he's Bruce Wayne at this point? Just wear a normal bulletproof helmet. His mask looks heavy af, which brings me to the second question.

He's in the desert. Isn't he hot under there? Does he really need to don an entire batsuit with a F**KING TRENCH COAT?!!!! Just wear normal armor! He doesn't need the batsuit to be agile in this environment, in fact, it's cumbersome. He trained with the League of Shadows. He would be better in this environment with lighter armor!

Adapt, Batman! Adapt!
