Zack Snyder Explains BATMAN v SUPERMAN's Ending And The [SPOILER] Of [SPOILER]

Zack Snyder talks here in detail about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's shocking ending, revealing why it happened and what exactly it means for Justice League next year. Check it out...

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ends with the funeral of Superman, and in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Zack Snyder explained why he decided to kill off the Man of Steel and what that means for Justice League. "I felt like we had to kill Superman in this movie in order for us to have been serious with the entire premise of the film," the filmmaker explains in regards to having Doomsday end the hero's life just as he did in the comic books. "And that’s not to say that he clearly is gone forever." That was of course pretty obvious when the movie ended with the dirt of Superman's coffin rising, a clear indication that his story is not yet over. However, it doesn't sound like Superman will make his return that quickly when the Justice League assemble next year. 
 
"I wanted Bruce Wayne to build the Justice League," Snyder continues. "I felt like with Superman around, it’s a different conversation when you create the Justice League, right?  It’s like, ‘Me and Superman, we want to make a Justice League.’ [Other heroes would be] like, ‘Okay, yeah, I’ll join!’ I just feel like Bruce Wayne having to go out and find these seven samurai by himself, that’s a lot more interesting of a premise. I also I felt like, without Superman, there is definitely a vulnerability to the team that they’re gonna need to figure something out, you know?  Superman does represent the powerful. He’s the Michael Jordan of heroes, he’s gonna score."
 
It remains to be seen how Superman will be brought back of course, but Snyder did at least drop some hints as to the method of his resurrection. Will the team be forced to turn to someone like Lex Luthor or even an otherworldly threat like Darkseid? "He comes very close to death in space and the reason why we did that is because I wanted to show — and keep the idea in the viewer’s mind — that he can come pretty close to death and the sun can revive him, or he can be revived. I think something more is gonna need to be done." Pretty intriguing, eh? How do you guys think the League will bring back Superman? Let us know your thoughts below.
