Zack Snyder says Bruce Wayne uses sex as a drug in ‘Batman v Superman’

Last night Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder shared a Jesus metaphor he put in the movie, and today he’s continuing to share some deeper meanings about certain scenes.

In Batman v Superman we see Bruce Wayne wake up from a nightmare. He has a woman in bed with him and he pops some pain killers with some wine. There’s artwork by Robert Mapplethorpe hanging above his bed, and according to Zack Snyder, this was to symbolize that sex is a drug that Bruce Wayne uses to momentarily forget about his pain.

I have a feeling Snyder will continue to share deeper meanings like this on Vero, so stay tuned for more.
