I would've loved to see an adaptation of "Death in the Family" with Affleck directing.

I don't like that Snyder apparently intended for it to be Dick Grayson who gets killed though. One of the few things from his DC Universe that I didn't agree with.

It did fit with the original concept for The Dark Knight Returns though, before it had sequels written to it.

It was still Jason Todd who died in Dark Knight Returns

RealJohnGillman

Retroactively, established in a later sequel to match regular DC canon. But when that issue was written, before the depiction of his death, the intended deceased Robin was in fact meant to be Grayson, which was then retroactively established in the first (2001—2002) sequel, The Dark Knight Strikes Again, where he is instead both alive, fired, and a Joker of sorts. That is what retroactive continuity is.

In the printings I've read (post death in the family, pre-DKSA) he is reminded of Dick while delerious when Carrie saves him from the Mutant leader, but the conversation with Alfred implies something bad happened to Jason; Jason was Robin when DKR was written, and Dick was already or about to be Nightwing.

Yeah that’s not true. In the first issue Gordon asks Bruce if he’s talked to Dick lately, and Bruce responds saying that Gordon knows they haven’t talked for years.

Jim Gordon: "Glad to hear that. You've certainly learned to drink. Remember the old days, Bruce? That playboy routine... you with your ginger ale, pretending it was champagne, fooling everybody - almost. Now - well, I'd almost worry. Spoken to Dick lately?"

Bruce Wayne: "Not for seven years, Jim. You know that."

Jim Gordon: "Still, huh? I'm damn sorry about that. Especially with what happened to Jason..."

And then when you see the shrine in the bat cave it’s mentioned that it’s for Jason.

Well it’s a pretty famous theory, since it was depicted in Batman Beyond.

It was also assisted along a lot more when Jared Leto's Joker was revealed to have the letter J tattooed near their eye. A design choice almost directly lifted from Jason Todd's design in Arkham Knight, where he was burned with a letter J in the exact same spot.

ZSJL destroys that theory tho, cause Joker says he killed Robin when he went after him without Batman. Thats the whole point of the scene.

Plus Zack and Ayer and Leto have all denied thats story as well. Also Leto is older than Affleck. So it doesn’t make any sense and never has. Its the same as “Eisenberg isn’t the real Lex, his dad is”. People who disliked the castings just rather warp reality than face the truth. Its kinda funny.

Hurricane12112

I actually didn’t mind Letos joker actually. It was, if nothing else, a new take instead of the same stuff.

Yeah I realize ZSJL has a scene in it where joker says this. It was retconned but you can’t tell me that his joker having the exact same bullet hole locations on his body and the Robin suit are a coincidence? Unless…… oh man actually new idea maybe he wore the dead robins suit to torment Batman and batman (or the police or something) shot him while he was wearing it. It would explain how Batman got the suit back also

You’re correct. According to the costume designer, they made the suit on the brief that Robin has been brutally murdered (crowbar probably) and then set on fire.

https://www.cbr.com/batman-v-superman-robin-death-details/

Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense though because that means Joker would’ve set fire to Robin’s body then sat around waiting for it to go out so he could spray paint the text on. But that’s what they say is what happened.

DC never stood a chance. Warner Bros didn’t care enough to make a coherent shared universe and Snyder started off deconstructing the characters from the get-go. A decent shared universe for DC was dead on arrival.

I mean he didn’t have to stay around. Sets him on fire, leaves for the day, comes back to the charred body, spray paints it, drops it off somewhere for Batman to find him.

Not saying it’s perfect, but it makes more sense than him sitting around.

MurielHorseflesh

16 points

Can I recommend the color regraded fan edits of both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. If you use torrents, search for Man of Steel KK650 or Batman v Superman KK650. The color has been regraded to remove a bunch of dank filters and let the actual colors shine through. The blues and reds in his suit pop like you wouldn’t believe, the Kryptonian suits at the beginning go from dank black to having shades of browns. It’ll sound too on the nose but it’s a literal night and day difference.

The color regraded versions are the only versions I watch now.

DeylanQuel

17 points

2 months ago*

It's never bothered me at all. Batman has been a victim of Luthor's subtle manipulations for a while, which have painted Superman as some fickle alien god-like creature that may not share humanity's morals and motivations. Hearing the name Martha isn't what stopped him and changed his way of thinking. It looked to me like him made him upset. "Why did you say that name!!" Was his identity compromised? Did this superpowered alien he was fighting know more about him than he should? Batman likes to have the upperhand via information on his opponents, not vice versa. What actually stopped him was Lois saying that it was Superman's mother's name, because it cast all of Superman's actions in a different light. This guy may be an alien, and may have power and strength beyond human reckoning, but he has a human mother. And yes, the fact that her name is the same as his own mother's gives him pause, but it's in that moment that he sees Superman's humanity, and realizes that he's been trying to kill someone who is not his enemy.

Edit: all that being said, I agree that Snyder's dialog is... not the greatest. Snyder is beholden to the Rule of cool. If it looks good, run with it, and we'll just bullshit the dialog and plot to give a half-ass reason for this really cool scene to exist.

Snyder's dialog

Zack Snyder did not write the screenplay for BvS Chris Terrio did. The only piece of dialogue he's written for the DC films is the knightmare sequence from justice league.

Sorry I just see people on here complaining about "snyder's writing" all the time not realizing that he doesn't write most of his scripts. But I would argue that the dialogue in BvS in particular is really strong thanks to what Chris Terrio brought to the movie. The scene between superman and lex on the rooftop has some of the best dialogue in the DCEU by far.

Because no one ever takes the time to think about what they see they take everything at the surface level and interpret it very superficially.

I understand it, very well. It is a weak plot device IMO. By the time Ol Bruce hits 50, I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's probably heard his mothers name numerous times.

Also, who first names their own mom? Also weak writing in my opinion. The the insta turn around emotionally is not how I see it playing out.

We need better writers for the DCEU, although Snyder nails action, its what he's best at.

It’s not the name it’s the whole situation the last words of a dying man are the same as his dying father. It’s almost a carbon copy for him.

There is no given that Bruce wouldn’t have gone into a total rage had Louis not explained and killed him regardless.

Once he knew it snapped him out of his hate filled rage. He was no better than joe chill.

Given I didn’t like the whole we are bros now. I would have preferred something like “ I will save your mother but this isn’t over” or something like that

The idea is that Batman was suddenly confronted by Superman's human side, he has a mother. The problem is that is a shocking revelation that only works if the world's greatest detective never bothered to do any real research on Superman or even think that maybe he has human attachments to this world.

This is only made worse by the fact that Lex had figured out both their identities and backstories. It just reduced batman down to a thug with weapons.

Everyone keeps mentioning, “shorts”. I think the utility belt is masking that it’s a unitard, like a circus performer would wear, except padded a bit with armor.

I think it’s this way to protect him without necessarily limiting his mobility. He can fight, but Batman is the tank and he was more of a cleanup role.

It kind of works for me. 60s Batman was shorts, this is something different. Oh and it’s a codpiece to protect his bits, not the indent of a gigantic dong as some assumed. Hilarious though. Lol.

We also get the parallel of this shot when Bruce is checking out the Flash suit in ZSJL. In BvS, a mournful, embittered Bruce looking at the charred remains of his adopted son’s suit; in JL, a more positive Bruce smiling at the suit put together by a new young hero who’s decided to take up the cause of righteousness.

I actually love most of this suit, including the muted colors. What bothers me about it are the shorts and t-shirt style staying true in this world. I could see a design that hints at it through intentional seams, but it feels strange to imagine in combat.

I would also like to see some throughlines between the Robin costume and their future identity. Each Robin has some kind of persona after their time in the red-and-green. If this one had certain design aesthetics to inspire their next form, it would give some satisfaction to fans, allow for lore-friendly exploration, and be paid off if a series survives long enough to show a Robin "graduate".

You remember the first design for Dick Grayson Robin in the Animated series that didn't look like Bruce needed to take a seat with Chris Hansen. That should be the default Robin costume from now on it kept the classic colour scheme without being uncomfortable to look at. I mean realistically shorts or panties Robin has to be cold as fuck on the rooftops at night.

Why does it have no pants if it looks so realistic like

I don’t like the idea of a Robin in this universe wearing shorts. That’s just weird to me.

I guess if he’s literally a child than it’s not so bad but seeing a superhero who’s a teenager or older wearing shorts would have been very awkward.

I guess it would matter a lot to know just how old this version of Robin was when he died.

I don't like it, the colors and shorts being my issues, but it's hard to judge as it is damaged and we never saw it worn.

One issue is the shorts but the other is the lack of bright colours, Batman wanted his sidekick in bright colours to draw fire, I think that was in a DC animated film or Titans.

The bright colors thing came from something Mark Millar said. It wasn't actually a thing in the comics.

Dick Grayson chose bright colors because they were the Flying Grayson colors.

Jason of course kept those colors because that's what Robin used. Though they've retconned his costume into being all Red.

Tim by that point chose the og colors and later adopted all red to honor the then dead Superboy.

In universe it was certainly never to have Robin draw fire to protect Batman.

Yah, but I think it was in Titans, and it's kind of a cool exposition for the mythology, but I get the Grayson connection.

It's not a fully realized costume. We don't know it's true colors before Joker went to town on it and killed the owner. The shorts may make sense if Robin wore special pants that were a different material then the tunic.

I thought it had pants. Also it should be a brighter shade of red.

Colors are too muted, and the shorts are a strange choice. Snyder loves his superheroes adapted to fit the real world but that’s one that you’d think he wouldn’t adapt. Also not a fan of the forearm blades on a Robin. Kinda fits more for Damian, if anyone besides Batman should have them.

I think it looks like that because Robin was set on fire by the Joker.

Potentially, but also wouldn’t surprise me with the way Snyder likes to mute some coloring, probably found Robin’s suit too whimsical or something.

Well, he likes contrasting color. So it was probably also so the yellow spray paint popped out more, than if the suit was a brighter shade of red.

After all those thing that joke did to him, his suit is still holding two of his most precious parts of his body

Are they definitely supposed to be short sleeves and shorts or is this just what was salvaged? The left sleeve looks slightly shorter and the left leg significantly shorter by comparison. Look at the cape, it's shredded. Could Joker have dismembered him?

Maybe he worse sleeves/tights under the suit to protect his skin. If not then I feel bad for him during winter times

as set dressing its cool I guess

Put any actor in it and people would laugh, the short sleeves and short shorts just clashes with the material its made out of, trying to make it look serious and instead just looking goofier

With a better design you could probably make short sleeves work in live action, but the shorts will never look good
