Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder in his exclusive interview with Empire Magazine, for the March issue out tomorrow on newsstand, spoke on asking The Dark Knight Trilogy director Christopher Nolan for his blessing and using Batman in the content he was planning on using him in Batman v Superman.
“You tell me if you don’t want me to do it,” Snyder told Nolan. After a silence, Nolan said, “Well, we don’t own these characters. When you’re done making Batman movies, someone else will [make them].
I think he found it a little bit hard,” Snyder admits. “I would feel the same way.” But with Nolan’s blessing, Snyder has set about creating what he sees as a very intimate battle between two superheroes. “In a lot of ways Batman v Superman is a very personal concept,” he insists. “It is just two people trying to understand each other’s point of view.”
