Zac Snyder can’t put a Stormtrooper in his movie “Batman v Superman” but he was able to put one of the “Star Wars” soldiers in a tweet he posted earlier this month.
“I think it was started because J.J. and Colin Anderson sent me a picture of the two of them wearing cheap Batman masks,” Affleck said in an interview with Yahoo! Movies. “I showed it to Zack and said ‘this is bullshit! We have to do something.'”
It didn’t take long for Abrams to mock up a shot of C-3PO doing his best caped-crusader impression, crouched high above Gotham City. He posted the photo on social media in August.
“I think it’s cool,” Affleck said. “The meta-awareness of these movies and the two directors going back and forth. I like it.”
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is set to be released in Spring 2016. “Star Wars: Episode VII” is due out Dec. 2015.
