Zack Snyder (o diretor de cinema) afirmou que Batman v Superman se inspiraria nos quadrinhos de Frank Miller, The Dark Knight Returns. 1
The biggest deal was, Snyder brought out Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) to use his cool voice to read the following piece of dialogue:
"I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you."
Yup. Batman's speech from The Dark Knight Returns. Snyder said the movie won't be an adaptation of this graphic novel... but it will be inspired by it. The crowd lost their shit.
E em O Cavaleiro das Trevas retorna , Bruce Wayne tem 55 anos, enquanto Superman / Clark Kent parece estar em seus 30 anos. A armadura do Batman no trailer quando ele está enfrentando o Superman também é semelhante à sua armadura no TDKR.
Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.
