Zack Snyder says Batman’s spear in ‘Batman v Superman’ was a Jesus metaphor

Zack Snyder hasn’t been shy about comparing Henry Cavill’s Superman to Jesus in both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Some of the references and imagery have been obvious, while others not as much. Today on Vero, Snyder shared a metaphor that you may not have noticed.

“Why with all the technology at his disposal would Batman build a spear?,” Snyder asked. “Here’s why,” he said along with an image of Jesus hanging on the cross and a man about to pierce him with a spear.

Some fans have appreciated all of the comparisons Snyder has made between Superman and Jesus, while others have found it to be distasteful. Let me know where you stand in the comments below, but please, keep it respectful!
