Zack Snyder discussed Batman shooting thugs with the Batmobile in Batman v Superman during his recent live stream event.
Although Batman v Superman is divisive among fans and critics, Zack Snyder recently hosted a live stream of the DC film to reveal his insight into making the project and discussed the choices he made directing it. Fans have constantly debated the guns on the Batmobile considering Batman’s supposedly unbreakable rule about not killing his enemies so that he doesn’t sink to their level. But in Zack Snyder’s live stream, the director joked that the goons Batman shoots are “100% fine” and it was only done to show off the Batmobile’s weapons.
“This is an example of the Batmobile’s armaments and its weapons. I’m sure these guys are fine. They’re going to be 100 percent okay, they’re not going to be dead. Those guys in the car there, they’re 100% fine. We should have done like an A-Team shot of them by the road getting up like, ‘Ugh, that hurt.’ But they’re fine. Just for the PG-13 of it all.”
Zack Snyder went on to reveal an interesting fact about the Batman v Superman stunt, explaining that on the first take, the car landed perfectly on top of the container and they had to redo the scene because it looked too crazy. The crew re-shot the scene after weakening the container so the car would would cause more damage.
“What was cool about that shot is when we did the first take, that car getting hit, it went on top of that container or that construction office and landed directly on top. It was like this crazy coincidence, it just stayed up on top of the container. We were like, ‘That looks crazy.’ So, we had to take it down and do it again. Only this time we weakened the containers so that it would crush it. it was one of those hilarious coincidences where a giant car landed perfectly on top of a container.”
