Zack Snyder Explains Why Batman is in "Man of Steel" Sequel

Zack Snyder Explains Why Batman is in "Man of Steel" SequelSubmit Comment
In a new interview with Forbes magazine, director Zack Snyder spoke about how the decision to include Batman in his "Man of Steel" sequel happened.

"After 'Man of Steel' finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman," said Snyder. "In the first meeting, it was like, 'Maybe Batman?' Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne's house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that's the first time we see him."

He continued: "You're in a story meeting talking about who should [Superman] fight if he fought this giant alien threat Zod who was basically his equal physically, from his planet, fighting on our turf... Who to fight next? The problem is, once you say 'What about Batman?' then you realize, "Okay, that's a cool idea.'"

Even though Snyder loves Batman, the idea to include the character only came to him when discussing "Man of Steel 2." He explained: "I'm not gonna say that when I took the job to do 'Man of Steel' that I did it in a subversive way to get to Batman. I really believe that only after contemplating who could face [Superman], did Batman come into the picture."

Stop lying, *sshole. You put Batman into Man of Steel the way a coprophage puts sugar into his sh*t souffle.

You know goddamned well Nolan's Batman is all DC has to offer, and you know damned well Man of Steel is mediocre at best, so you're trying to make people care about Superman by doping turds with diamonds. You know you're not Nolan and never will be, and you know DC couldn't find their *sshole with Google Maps and GPS.

So be honest. You put Batman into Superman because people aren't going to eat a turd sandwich without a sweetener.

DC should stick to the one medium they have marvel beat at: Animation.

Yeah..right. Whatever you're saying, zack. Bottom line, this movie will either be the greatest media event to ever hit the world, or the greatest f*ck-up disaster to ever burn a couple hundred million dollars.

"DC should stick to the one medium they have marvel beat at: Animation."

That was very true right up until the moment they made JLA: War, one of the absolute WORST animated anything I've ever seen, including that Beavis and Butthead movie and Evil Toons.

Zack Snyder Explains Why Batman is in "Man of Steel" Sequel .... Because "Man of Steel" was sh*te.

Still waiting for this f*ckhole to explain "Sucker Punch" ... either that, or we hire Uwe Boll to take him on in a steel octagon in a fight to the death.
