Zack Snyder Was Suprised by Fans Reacting to “Martha Scene” -” That Is Gonna Get Him, That’s Amazing”

Zack Snyder is currently promoting his latest movie, ‘The Rebel Moon – Part 2: The Scargiver,’ but he’s also weighing on his former movies, most notably movies that were part of the ill-fated DCEU.

Snyder commented a while back that Batman is boring if he is not put in a situation where he has to kill people, and most recently he also commented on the Zod’s and Superman’s fight in ‘Man of Steel’ saying that Superman is also fake if he is not able to kill Zod, as the character has to be put in situation to kill villains to further cement his humanity.

Now one of the most notable scenes and plot twists in Snyderverse actually came from ‘Batman v Superman.’ Batman and Superman are going at it when they realize their mothers have the same name. In this moment Batman realizes that Superman is more human than he thought. Fans were shocked by this, with the notable moment being turned into a meme. It’s not that the scene had an evergreen iconic feel to it, it’s that it felt incredibly cheap. Speaking with GQ Snyder explained what his rationale behind the scene was:

You know that [Batman and Superman’s] mothers have the same name. Yeah, like imagine that Batman sees Superman as an alien, as a monster, but realizes that his dead mother has the same name as this thing that he considers nonhuman. Like, that’s gonna get him. That is gonna get him, that’s amazing.

The names supported the bond between Superman and Batman that was needed to make them allies. Despite fans savagely mocking the scene, Snyder is glad that fans are still talking about it.
