Batman Will Do Naughty Stuff to Superman in Dawn of Justice, Says Zack Snyder

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Who’d win in a fight between Batman and Superman? Superman, obviously. However, as there's a movie in the works, money to be made and legions of geeks to entertain, the whole world's pretending it isn't quite that simple. Director Zack Snyder knows exactly how to play the game, and has delivered a teaser that'll get juices flowing all over the world.

Asked how a beefcake armed with a costume and a bunch of weapons might go about beating a super-strong, crazy-fast alien with heat vision, the ability to fly and plenty more in his locker (including his own rather fetching outfit), Snyder said, “The advantage that Batman has is the goodness of Superman; the compliance to play fair that Superman has. Batman knows how to exploit Superman.”

Not a huge surprise. Ben Affleck’s Batman will almost certainly score a nice little baggy of Kryptonite from Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor, which will drain Henry Cavill’s Superman of his powers. After that, the film may simply descend into a brawl between two annoyingly muscular chaps in fancy dress, while an obviously-evil guy watches from the sidelines. Still sounds entertaining, actually.
