Batman V Superman Star Wars crossover wins the internet

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice director Zack Snyder reveals Henry Cavill in Sith mode


“Super Jedi,” tweets Zack Snyder, but going by the red lightsaber – that’s no Jedi.

Is this just a fun knockabout on the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice set or a cynical attempt to steal some headlines from Marvel as they clean up San Diego Comic-Con with posters and announcements?

If so, well played. Maybe JJ Abrams will retaliate and show us John Boyega breaking Mark Hamill’s neck.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be released on 6 May 2016 – read our defence of Ben Affleck’s casting here and Gal Gadot’s casting here. Find out more about the comics that inspired the film with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics.
