Zack Snyder is clearly excited for the new Star Wars movie, Rogue One. Earlier this week he released a picture of Batman holding a lightsaber, and now we know why! He was cutting a Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer filled with Star Wars Easter eggs.
Snyder posted the video above on the mobile social network Vero with the caption “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”.
Update: According to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cinematographer Larry Fong, Snyder cut together the trailer above over a year ago. Hopefully the trailer he’s working on right now is that new Justice League trailer that keeps getting teased!
Saw this over a year ago. Now, finally, so can you! #BvSvStarWars @badrobot https://t.co/m1Rhl9XSwJ

The video Snyder is referencing is from his 2014 Twitter war with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams. Abrams released a video showing how the Millennium Falcon compared to a Batmobile.
