Zack Snyder Continues Trolling the Internet with New Batman STAR WARS Image

While director Zack Snyder is no doubt extremely busy while he’s in the midst of production on the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it appears that he still has time to toy with the internet.  A couple of weeks ago during Comic-Con, Snyder put together an image of Henry Cavill dressed like a Jedi and shared it on Twitter with the caption “SuperJedi”.  The pic was presumably just Snyder having some fun, as all of the Batman v Superman actors have to wear those robes to set to avoid being snapped by onlookers; Snyder apparently thought Cavill looked a bit like a Jedi.  It appears that Snyder’s Star Wars fascination isn’t over yet, though, as today he went ahead and put up a Batman Star Wars image captioned “Batman & R2bin”.

Hit the jump to check out the cheeky image, and for real BvS news, check out the first Wonder Woman image and our full Comic-Con panel recapBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.

The question remains whether Snyder is just having some fun or if there’s a larger wink at work with these Star Wars mash-ups.  Snyder was previously linked to a potential Star Wars spinoff movie a few years ago, but he’s tied up in the DC Universe for some time as he’s poised to shoot Justice League directly after Batman v Superman.  What’s most likely is that Snyder is just a big Star Wars fan and understands that the internet is paying close attention to anything and everything SW-related.  I say again, well played Mr. Snyder.

This particular image at first looks to be an elaborately staged set piece, but a subsequent image from the BvS set photographer reveals how Synder actually put the photo together.

    Well at least the action figure can turn its head…

    • GunzOfNavarone

      People forget that one of the better Batmans i.e. Tim Burton’s first featured a Batman that couldn’t turn his head. In fact there is a scene in which he is flying the batwing and has to turn his shoulders to give a thumbs up. In all honesty, I can’t say I had a problem with it.

      • brNdon

        Nobody forgot.

        Sure they didn’t LOL! Why are people saying it?? “LOGIC OF FANBOYS I SEE.”

      • Oliver Queen

        That’s not something people forgot, which is why people keep making the jokes, Batman should be able to turn his head.

        That was Tim Burton making the best of a bad situation. Michael Keaton’s Batsuit was badly designed in some ways. Batman in Burton’s film SHOULD have been able to turn his head.

        Because, let’s be honest, if Batman can’t turn his head it makes a somewhat silly idea even more so (because he would be dead. No ands, ifs or buts about it).

        I kinda liked it

    Is this Snyder’s way of warming us up to him directing a Star Wars spin-off? I remembered a few years ago there were rumors of him directing a The Mangificent 7 version w jedi’s instead of cowboys.

      I don’t know why people keep thinking there’s some deeper meaning to this. It’s Zack Snyder trying to tap into the fandom for Star Wars because there’s not much to be found for his own movie. If he can gain their attention, maybe they’ll see his movie because they remember these Star Wars nods.

        You don’t get it yet? Snyder tried to explain a few weeks ago: It’s called Batman v Superman, not Batman vs. Superman because “it’s not a straight ‘versus’ movie.” The “v” obviously stands for Star Wars. Duh.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        I am ashamed of myself for not catching on earlier. It’s so obvious now. As penance I will go through every court decision ever and change the ‘v’ to ‘vs’ because those are straight versus cases and should be labeled as such.

    Darkseid confirmed?

    i follow both Snyder and Bad Robot on twitter. this appears to just be a fun little game of back and forth. Snyder shared the Cavill as Jedi picture. Bad Robot responded (yet it somehow didn’t make the waves that Snyder’s pictures did) with a picture of John Boyega in the Batman cowl with the hashtag #Boyegaman. this just looks to be some good fun between two productions that people are very excited about

    If only he would keep the cast from being political. I keep getting annoying updates on this movie that arent actually about the movie but of the cast sharing political crap and it just mentions them starring in this movie.

    I really resent it when actors pull this. Keep the trolling stuff Zack but seriously reign in the political crap.

    It definitely occurred to me during Dawn of Planet of Talking Monkeys that all of Gary Oldman ‘ s problems ‘ d be solved if he just called the Batman.

    It dosen’t matter I think it’s funny how people react to the pics LMAO! People want nothing but boring and strait laced loosen up for this. It’s fucking Batman and Superman!!! Why do you hate that?? Your so hooked on the old movies,you actually believe this will suck LMMFAO @ FANBOY LOGIC!! Be lucky you have a director that wants to breath new life into DC films. After all the bitching you still don’t get it,but I’ll be seeing nothing but praise after this comes out just like GOTG that was also going to flop. Be happy that you have directors like Synder and Gunn who love making these movies and not just somebody trying to get paid.
