Update: It’s been revealed that the Martha Wayne/Martha Kent “twist” mentioned below was, in fact, a joke on Snyder’s part. Hats off to Mr. Snyder, because I have to admit, the joke is pretty damn funny. You can watch him say it in a video below.
One of the most infamous scenes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes near the end, when Batman and Superman have a big CGI smack-down in the rain. During the battle, Batman comes very close to murdering the Man of Steel, but stops when he learns that Supes’ mother is named Martha – which was also the name of Batman’s mother. It’s a moment that was meant to make the xenophobic Batman realize that Superman didn’t deserve his hatred, and while it might work in theory, the scene itself was met with derision.
Director Zack Snyder recently screened several of his movies for an audience, and took the time to discuss them at great length. During that discussion, the Batman v Superman Martha scene inevitably came up. Snyder also dropped some info on a huge, crazy twist that was briefly floated around the idea.

But little did we know, we dodged the Mother (Box) of bullets with Suicide Squad, which was originally set to properly introduce Steppenwolf before Justice League.
