Zack Snyder, director of bad films like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (go on, fight me), has unleashed on fans who thought that his Batman was a bit too murder-y by using lots and lots of swears, as CBR.com writes.
At a three-day charity event over the weekend in California, Snyder held a Q&A and screening of the director’s cuts of his flicks, Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
It was there that he took the opportunity to wail on the crybabies who think Batman shouldn’t be portrayed as such a violent bloke, and his comments were then OFC shared to Reddit yesterday.
At the Watchmen Q&A, he said that film should influence how the rest of his work is understood: “Someone says to me: [Ben Affleck’s] Batman killed a guy. I’m like, ‘Fuck, really? Wake the fuck up.’”
Once you’ve lost your virginity to this fucking movie and then you come and say to me something about like ‘My superhero wouldn’t do that.’ I’m like ‘Are you serious?’ I’m like down the fucking road on that. It’s a cool point of view to be like ‘My heroes are still innocent. My heroes didn’t fucking lie to America. My heroes didn’t embezzle money from their corporations. My heroes didn’t commit any atrocities.’ That’s cool. But you’re living in a fucking dream world.
Question: who is fucking to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? That is a powerful image and I hate it. I think this is meant to a burn against people who thought Batman did too many murders – at least 21 by one count – by calling the whingers former ‘virgins’ or like ‘virgins’ until they saw his movie? Are they horny for Batman? Who knows?

The 21-person kill count makes Snyder’s Batman the most kill-y of all the Batmans, one-upping the titular character in Tim Burton‘s 1989 Batman, who killed 17 people, as Games Radar notes.
And Snyder seems mad, so I guess, it makes sense his Batman would be the most murder-y Batman? And also arguably the most shitty Batman? Christian Bale‘s rules, end of discussion.
