If something has shown Zack Snyder with his new version of League of Justice is that, beyond work, he really loves DC characters. The filmmaker took care to take care of every last detail, both in the story and the setting, offering fans a completely new perspective on Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash y compañía. And it all comes from a comic in question, which was clearly inspired to Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight.
During an interview at Justice Con, Snyder was asked what it was his all time favorite batman costume. The answer, was not surprising, since he chose the worn version of Return of the Dark Knight by Frank Miller, one of his clearest influences regarding the Bat Man both in Batman v Superman like in League of Justice.
“My favorite Batman costume is the one from The Dark Knight Returns”the director stated without hesitation.” You know, basically Frank Miller’s Bat-suit. If I had to make that movie I would do exactly that version. I recently saw a guy, who does ‘cosplay’, and he had recreated the costume to perfection. I don’t remember his name, but I saw him and he was big, and I thought he could work without a problem”he added.
Actually, Ben Affleck’s Batman suit has many similarities to the one designed by Frank Miller for his iconic story from the wide bat logo on the chest to the colors in shades more gray than black. It’s not exactly the same but it can be considered a fairly faithful adaptation, which actually works wonderfully with the actor’s demeanor and the sour character of Batman in the DCEU.
During Justice Con, the director also spoke about the fan movement that, under the hashtag #RestoreTheSnyderVerse asks Warner to give the filmmaker the opportunity to continue his particular vision of the DCEU with sequels to Justice League. This, for the moment, It seems impossible, but Snyder appreciates the unconditional support of the fans.
“I’ll just say this. It’s a concept that I think shows reverence for work,” he thanked. “I don’t know what will turn out, whatever it is. Most likely nothing. But reverence for work is something that I really appreciate and that deserves all my respect. ”
“And of course I will do my best to help (the campaign). If someone tells me, whoever they are, that they really loved the movie and want me to do another one, I will not be the one to say ‘forget it’, because it would be rude Snyder added proudly.
