For being released nearly three years ago, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is apparently the gift that keeps on giving. Director Zack Snyder let fans know earlier today that he was, in fact, actually in the movie.
As Snyder confirmed on Vero, he read some lines that were dubbed over one of the henchmen in Bruce Wayne’s Knightmare sequence. After a fan shared an image of the henchman in question, saying he was “95% sure” it was Snyder’s voice, Snyder himself left a comment confirming the voice was his.
The scene comes in the surreal and much-discussed Knightmare sequence, in which the Caped Crusader dreams of a dystopian nightmare future in which the earth has been invaded by Apokalyptian forces, there’s a huge Darkseid omega symbol carved into the ground and Superman’s apparently gone full Injustice. It doesn’t look like much fun, to say the least.
Snyder’s cameo occurs when a truck arrives containing a very special object Batman’s ordered to be delivered, a fragment of Superman-killing Kryptonite. The Dark Knight walks to the truck and asks if he has it and the man in the vehicle replies, “Yeah, we got it.” Even in such a short clip, fans recognized those familiar tones and said on Vero to the director that they were “95% sure he read these lines,” to which Snyder responded, “Got me.”
Considering that the film’s now two and a half years old, there’s still a steady stream of trivia and hidden information trickling out about it, while its reputation has slightly improved after the disastrous mess that Justice League transpired to be.
