On a recent episode of the Hall of Justice podcast, director Zack Snyder talked about his upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and just how big of a role everyone has, including The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg.
As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very small role. It’s really just a whisper they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her really well. But really the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters. That’s pretty much the why of the movie. But again as I said, it does begin the conversation about these guys are out there.
In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016. You’ll see more from these characters in the upcoming Justice League: Part One which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 17, 2017.
