During a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, talking about his recent film Gone Girl, Ben Affleck shot some answers behind the friction between Batman v Superman and Star Wars that has been happening these past few months. He states the rivalry actually started in private, and in a good sport from both sides, Snyder and Abrams began promoting each other’s films online.

“I think it was started because JJ [Abrams] and Colin Anderson, who is a great [camera] operator who always works on my movies, and JJ is always trying to steal, and I’m trying to steal back, sent me a picture of the two of them wearing cheap Batman masks”

“I showed it to Zack [Snyder], and said ‘this is bulls***, we have to do something’.”

The first image released by Snyder as an answer to Abrams’ photo was of Henry Cavill as Superman with a Sith cloak and a red light saber.

Below we give a look back at the crossover promotional images released throughout all the media.


It is exactly what you see it is.

Apparently, both the rivalry and the crossover pictures have concluded with a last piece: Nolan’s Batman Tumbler attached to the Millennium Falcon. Say that again! I dare you.
