Director Zack Snyder recently revealed that he originally had a much bigger pay off for that iconic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ending shot.
Batman v Superman was a dream come true for some fans, who loved Snyder’s new take on the characters and story. That being said, some fans seemed to have an issue with the final moments of the film, especially considering that it had no pay off in 2017’s follow-up Justice League. The ending of Batman v Superman features a shot of Kal-El’s (Henry Cavill) casket. Moments before the credits roll, as the audience thinks that they’ve lost Supes, dirt begins to rise from the casket and that’s where it ends.
Some fans questioned why the death would happen if it were just going to be solved in the final shot, but others wanted to wait to see what Snyder had planned for Justice League, which makes sense considering the storytelling of the DC Extended Universe thus far. Sadly, the post-production controversies of Justice League changed quite a bit of Snyder’s original vision and according to Snyder via the social media app Vero, part of his vision that was cut was some big plans in connection to that final shot.
Sadly, Snyder didn’t reveal what those big plans were just yet. Hopefully, at some point down the line, Snyder will be able to be less vague about subjects like this. Until then, fans will have to keep an eye out for Snyder’s Vero activity to stay up-to-date with all of the awesome DCEU questions that he answers.
