Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder called the infamous ‘Martha’ scene in the film “beautiful” in a recent interview.
There’s a lot to be said about Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman and how it effectively changed the direction of the DC Extended Universe, just not in the way Warner Bros. intended. After a poor response from some fans and the majority of critics the studio decided to pivot the direction of the DCEU. That’s not to say it isn’t still popular, many are looking forward to the director’s remastered version of the film. One of the most infamous scenes which has since become the source of an endless amount of memes online is the ‘Martha’ moment – where Batman stops fighting Superman because of his mother’s name.
Zack Snyder has obviously made plenty of headlines in the past few weeks ahead of Justice League‘s release on HBO Max next month. But when speaking to I Minutemen on YouTube, the director revealed his thoughts on the infamous ‘Martha’ scene, explaining that he thinks it’s the lynchpin holding Batman v Superman together. Take a look below.
“Clearly I am a fan of, and are very interested in how ‘Martha’, that concept – it’s central to the film. It’s 100% the lynchpin that holds the entire movie together. I think it’s indicative of the way that Batman v Superman was received that its central tenet was sort of belittled and made fun of. I personally think it is like this beautiful and incredibly symmetrical idea that completely finishes it as a concept.”
