The Joker and Riddler Came Close to Appearing in Batman v Superman

Director Zack Snyder at the press junket for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, when asked by Collider on how close did the film get from having The Joker in it, Snyder confirmed he came close to putting The Joker along with The Riddler into the film.

The Joker and The Riddler both came close to being in this movie. We talked about the possibility of putting them in. [Screenwriter] Chris Terrio and I talked about it a lot and felt that their mythological presence is felt in the movie and that’s cool, but I didn’t want to get my eye too far off the ball because I needed to spend the time, frankly, with Batman and Superman to understand the conflict.
