THE ALIENS FROM V WERE ALMOST IN BATMAN V SUPERMAN SAYS ZACH SNYDER
HOLLYWOOD – Zach Snyder today revealed that the aliens from the popular TV show V almost featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Talking at the premier of his new film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zach Snyder dropped the bombshell that aliens from the popular TV show V almost featured in the new movie. Speaking EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec red carpet reporter, the 300 director said that the concept of using the aliens had been in the script from an early stage:
I think it was kind of a joke at the first. The idea would be that the aliens from V would be there because we had the letter V in the title of the film, so if anyone complained we could say, ‘look, it was in the title all along’, but after we cast Ben Affleck we thought if we put too many jokes in it, we’d be pushing the audience beyond the limits, so we decided to cut them, as we did all references to the novel by Thomas Pynchon.
What role would the aliens have played?
They were going to be the second string villains. You would have them as the heavies and then Lex Luthor would be revealed to be behind everything. And you have them guzzling rats and tearing their faces accidentally and what have you. I’m a huge fan of the original show, not so much of the remake.
Is there a chance they might appear in a future episode in the franchise?
Funny you should mention that. After all the research I did and all the fun I had writing for the aliens I did start a treatment for the next movie and brought them back to play a fundamental role.
