‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ was almost teased with a credits scene at the end of 'Man of Steel’. director Zack Snyder has revealed.
The problem was that plans for Superman and Batman to clash were yet to be set in stone, and the scene in question would have forced Warner Bros to make the film happen.
“I said, ‘What about at the end of the movie we do a scene where there’s a crate full of kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor,’ Snyder told Entertainment Weekly in their cover feature about the movie.
“Everyone was like…‘Okaaay.’ Once you say it out loud it’s a problem because you can’t unsay it.”
Fair enough. Another concern might have been that it would appear Warner Bros were imitating Marvel Studios’ love of putting teasers at the end of its film. 'Man of Steel’ was already the beginning of the DC Comics film universe which will attempt to rival Marvel’s Avengers universe.
Ben Affleck stars as Batman, alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in the film.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ is set for release on 25 March 2016 and will feature heavily at this month’s San Diego Comic Con.
