Zack Snyder Shares New Behind The Scenes Look At Batman V Superman’s Knightmare Batman
Zack Snyder’s already confirmed that the NetherRealm Studios video game, Injustice, did indeed influence the Knightmare sequence in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. And earlier today, the filmmaker hosted an online discussion with fans to clear up any confusion regarding the discarded narrative over on his favourite social media platform, Vero.
The sequence in question depicts Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) witnessing an apocalyptic future where the planet is under the control of Darkseid and his Parademons, due to an apparent partnership with Superman (Henry Cavill). Subsequently, Barry Allen/Flash (Ezra Miller) travels back in time, via the cosmic treadmill, to deliver an ominous warning to Batman. The message implores him to find Lois Lane (Amy Adams), unite the Justice League, and be wary of some tragedy that will befall the Man of Steel at some point in the future.
To accompany his dissection of the sequence, Snyder’s now shared a new, behind the scenes look at the Knightmare Batman from Dawn of Justice, featuring Ben Affleck’s stuntman Richard Cetrone in the Batsuit. You can check out the snapshot below, which came with the caption, “On lookout at Manor base (Hall of Justice)…also much love to Richard Cetrone for his work on all my live-action movies.”
As I mentioned before, the director’s already confirmed, amongst other things, that the vision ultimately leads Bruce to abandon the Batcave, believing it’s been compromised, and move operations to Wayne Manor for his war against Darkseid. Unfortunately, Snyder never got the chance to explore this disastrous future in Justice League, but his commitment to DC minutia is still admirable. Plus, his mention of the Hall of Justice is sure to get the fandom’s blood pumping once again, especially when considering the current state of the DCEU.
Speaking of which, do you think DC and Warner Bros. will be able to turn things around starting with Aquaman (December 21st) later this year? Or was Snyder the only hope for the franchise? Let us know in the comments section below!
