The DCEU has had a difficult road to travel since its inception. Perhaps the one moment that most perfectly captures the general public’s attitude toward Zack Snyder’s version of the franchise that began with Iron Man is the online tease that the scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice He was subdued in which Batman and Superman stop fighting when the Dark Knight learns that the Man of Steel has a mother named Martha. In a recent interview, Snyder defended the scene against naysayers.
“I’m clearly a fan and very interested in how ‘Martha’ that concept is central to the movie. I mean, it’s 100% the lynchpin that holds the whole movie together. I think it’s indicative of the way Batman v Superman was. received that its core principle was belittled and mocked. Personally, I think it’s like this beautiful and incredibly symmetrical idea that completely ends it as a concept. Everything is 100% with the intention and intention of being all the images you see, as far as to his inspiration and things like that. “
Of course, in that scene much more happened than “Batman and Superman stop fighting because their mothers have the same name.” The name acts as a catalyst for Batman, forcing him to see Superman for the first time as a human rather than an alien. According to Zack snyder, the public would do well to look beyond the surface when it comes to Batman v. Superman, because he and his team made a conscious effort to make each scene have a deeper meaning in terms of symbolism and subtext.
“I’m sure we have a lot of cinematic references, as well as classics, and Citizen Kane would certainly be among the things that we would see and look at as iconographic landmarks that people could link to as a way to help with a secondary story. images exist here, but the images they evoke are deeper. It’s like every image you see, and we strive carefully, that every image that you can dive into and find, be it a cinematic or mythological or historical reference, we really try to support the movies in that way as much as possible. “
Now that Snyder is getting another swing in the DCEU with the upcoming director of League of Justicehopefully that movie will be less divisive. Zack Snyder’s Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
