Zack Snyder defends much-criticized Martha moment in Batman v Superman

The DCEU has had a rocky road to travel since its inception. Perhaps the moment that best reflects the general public’s attitude towards Zack Snyder’s take on the franchise that began. Steel man is the online mockery in which the scene Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was subjected to which Batman and Superman stop fighting when the Dark Knight learns that the Man of Steel has a mother named Martha. In a recent interview, Snyder defended the scene against detractors.

“It’s clear that I’m a fan of, and I’m very interested in how ‘Martha’, that concept is at the heart of the movie. I mean, it’s 100% the linchpin that holds the whole thing together. of the movie together. I think it points to the way Batman v Superman was received that its central premise was sort of demeaned and made fun of. Personally, I think it’s like this gorgeous and incredibly symmetrical idea that he’s got it. completely ends as a concept. Everything is 100% with the intention and the intention to be all the images that you see, in terms of their inspiration and stuff like that. “

Of course, there was a lot more going on in that scene than “Batman and Superman Stop Fighting Because Their Moms Have The Same Name”. The name acts as a catalyst for Batman, forcing him to see Superman for the first time as a human rather than an alien. According to Zack Snyder, the public would do well to look beneath the surface when it comes to Batman vs. Superman, because he and his team made a conscious effort to make each scene have a deeper meaning in terms of symbolism and subtext.

“I’m sure there are a lot of cinematic references that we have, as well as classic, and Citizen Kane would definitely be among the things that we would consider and see as iconographic landmarks that people could tap into as a way to help. with a secondary storyline. That is, the images exist here, but the images they evoke run deeper. It’s like every picture that you see – and we have tried carefully – that every picture that you could dive in and find, whether it’s a cinematic reference or whether it’s mythological or historical, we really try to support the films in that way as much as possible. “

Now that Snyder has another swing at the DCEU with the upcoming director’s cut of Justice Leaguehopefully this film will prove to be less divisive.
