It all began when San Diego Comic-Con Eve, Zack Snyder started the public “battle” with this first image
It was two weeks ago that J.J. Abrams didn’t let go of any chance to up the ante on his rival Zack Snyder, director of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In this pursuit, he debuted a new video showing off the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars: Episode VII with a model of the Batmobile on its underbelly. This isn’t the first time we are seeing the pair act like this and it isn’t unusual for them to go back and forth with these comic tags. However, if you want to know how this all started then you wouldn’t have wanted to miss Ben Affleck’s interview with Yahoo in which he explained the background of this.
Affleck says, “I think it was started because J.J. [Abrams] and Colin Anderson, who is a great [camera] operator who always works on my movies, and J.J. is always trying to steal, and I’m trying to steal back, sent me a picture of the two of them wearing cheap Batman masks. I showed it to Zack [Snyder], and said ‘this is bulls***, we have to do something.’ And Zack had the means at his disposal to retaliate with appropriately art-directed stuff….I think it’s cool. The sort of meta-awareness of these movies, and the two directors going back and forth… I like it, it’s cool.”
Now that we have a little insight to the history, we really wanted to go back and check up on the tags which the two have been posting on the internet. The public battle apparently started on September 23rd with San Diego Comic-Con Eve, Zack Snyder posting the first image captioned as “#SuperJedi”. The picture depicted Henry Cavill in black robes with a light saber. And within two days of this, Abrams struck back with his own creation – Star Wars: Episode VII star John Boyega in a Batman cowl and with a blaster captioned “#BOYEGAMAN.” And so it all began into a series of funny tags.
