Ben Affleck Explains Batman's Motive For Brawling With Superman


Batman vs Superman

When Batman V Superman was first announced, one of the earliest questions asked was, "Why are Batman and Superman fighting, they are both good guys?" According to Entertainment Weekly our super hero from Krypton may have inadvertently pissed off Bruce Wayne/Batman while trying to save the world in Man of Steel. The massive rumble between Superman and Zod may have led to some collateral damage affecting Wayne Industries.

One of the things I liked was Zack’s idea of showing accountability and the consequences of violence and seeing that there are real people in those buildings. And in fact, one of those buildings was Bruce Wayne’s building so he knew people who died in that Black Zero event.

In the same interview with EW, the Zack Snyder revealed he  approaches comicbook movies in a different way from "other superhero movies". He stated that he intended to count the dead of the Battle of Metropolis in Batman V Superman, while the victims of that catastrophe are a major factor in Batman's animosity towards Superman. He added: 

There are other superhero movies where they joke about how basically no one’s getting hurt,. That’s not us. What is that message? That’s it’s okay that there’s this massive destruction with zero consequence for anyone? That’s what Watchmen was about in a lot of ways too. There was a scene, that scene where Dan and Laurie get mugged. They beat up the criminals. I was like the first guy, I want to show his arm get broken. I want a compound fracture. I don’t want it to be clean. I want you to go, ‘Oh my God, I guess you’re right. If you just beat up a guy in an alley he’s not going to just be lying on the ground. It’s going to be messy.
