Earlier this week, Zack Snyder released an image of an armored Batman from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice brandishing a red lightsaber, which we originally thought was a small gesture of excitement for the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now we know that Snyder was not just editing one Star Wars-themed image, but was editing an entire trailer! Today, Snyder released a full-length edit of the original Batman v. Superman trailer, this time chock-full of Star Wars easter eggs and effects. Check it out here:
When he posted the clip on the video sharing app Vero, Snyder captioned the video as follows:
“Dark Side Knight v Superjedi. In anticipation of Rogue One, I wanted to share a little Star Wars fan film I made after JJ released his Hunka Junk mash-up… long overdue.”
The “Hunka Junk” quote is a reference to this video:
Personally, I thought the mashup trailer was fantastic, and as a result I am even more excited for both Rogue One and Justice League. What do you think about the edit? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
