Zack Snyder Talks Batman's Advantage Over Superman, Plus New Synopsis For 'Dawn Of Justice' Revealed'

It’s the kind of conversation that you’d expect only to find in nerdiest corners of your local comic book store. But such are the times that the battle between Batman and Superman is now mainstream, and everyone can discuss how an ordinary man with fancy gadgets could possibly defeat an all-powerful alien being. Well, according to director Zack Snyder, the Caped Crusader does have a way to get in the head of the Man Of Steel.

“The advantage that Batman has is the goodness of Superman; the compliance to fair play that Superman has… Batman knows how to exploit Superman,” he told Total Film. So it would seem Batman will manipulate Superman to try and gain the upper hand. Hey man, whatever works.

Clark Kent doesn’t trust Gotham’s mysterious masked vigilante. Bruce Wayne doesn’t trust the alien who nearly destroyed Metropolis. And Lex Luthor, who hates Superman more than anyone, is manipulating both of them for his own twisted ends. 
Choose your side: the Man of Steel or the Dark Knight? Learn the answer to the age-old question – who would win? – in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’.

Playing two superheroes off each other for your own gain? Sounds like a perfectly villainous plan…until it doesn’t work….
