Zack Snyder Shares Batman Wielding Lightsaber In Honor Of ‘Rogue One’

Zack Snyder combines his fandom for both DC Comics and 'Star Wars' once again with this new image he shared in honor of the release of 'Rogue One'.

Zack Snyder, who is hard at work directing the upcoming Justice League movie for DC is also a big Star Wars fan. During the production of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Snyder engaged in a friendly rivalry with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams by creating photos mashing both DC Comics and Star Wars together. My personal favorite was Abrams’ video featuring the full-scale Millennium Falcon with the Tumbler from The Dark Knight trilogy hidden underneath the ship.

Well, with Rogue One just a little over a week away, Zack Snyder is back at it again expressing his excitement for the latest entry in the franchise. This time, Zack Snyder put together a mock-up photo depicting Ben Affleck’s Batman as seen from Batman v Superman wielding a double-sided red lightsaber – similar to Darth Maul.

It seems that Zack Snyder’s lightsaber preference leans towards the Dark Side. Previously, he shared an image featuring Henry Cavill’s Superman wearing a Sith-like robe and wielding a red lightsaber. I’m curious to see if he continues this trend once again when Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII hits theaters next December – just one month after the release of Justice League. 

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters on December 16. Justice League opens in theaters on November 17, 2017.
