It’s fair to say that the recent DC movies have been divisive, to say the least – and none more so than 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice from director Zack Snyder. While the movie has a vocal fanbase that will defend it to the hilt, it remains a controversial movie – with a central scene involving a dream of Bruce Wayne’s being one of the most complained about.
The scene – dubbed ‘Knightmare’ – seemingly takes place in an apocalyptic future, where Batman is a resistance leader fighting against a murderous evil Superman. This mirrors the plotline from the Injustice games by Mortal Kombat developer Netherrealm. Now director Zack Snyder has seemingly confirmed that he was actually inspired, when filming that scene, by Injustice: Gods Among Us.
A fan on Vero (via ScreenRant) pointed out to Snyder the “Injustice vibe” they got from the Knightmare sequence, to which the director simply replied “oh yes”. He also seems to confirm that there was meant to be more of an arc for Resistance Batman and Evil Superman in Justice League, but was cut when Snyder left the film.
