Snyder Combines Batman v Superman & Star Wars in Epic Mashup Video

Have you ever wondered what side of the Force the DC Trinity would fall on? Well, wonder no more! “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder has combined “Batman v Superman” footage with “Star Wars” audio and lightsaber effects in a mashup video he titled “Dark Side Knight v Superjedi: Dawn of the Alliance.”

As in the original film, Batman and Superman go head-to-head, but their objective here is a little different. Batman wants Superman to “embrace the Dark Side,” but Superman — complete with a green lightsaber — isn’t having any of it. The video also includes a few other nods to the “Star Wars” canon, including a shot of the Darth Vader costume in the Batcave and a dozen or so audio clips from the original films.

Snyder initially released the video on the social media app Vero. In the app, Snyder captioned the video, describing it as a nod to “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” which is due to hit theaters this month. “In anticipation of Rogue One, I wanted to share a little Star Wars fan film I made after J.J. released his Hunka Junk mash-up,” he wrote. “Long overdue.”

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is now available for purchase. Starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn and more, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens December 16.
