All of the DCEU films are packed to the brim with Easter eggs, but Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is particularly stuffed. In fact, fans continue to uncover new secrets about the film, with director Zack Snyder reliably using his social platforms to confirm or deny certain elements. With that in mind, one fan just sniffed out a Snyder cameo in the Knightmare sequence, and the director has officially confirmed that he did, in fact, lend his voice to the character who presents the fake Kryptonite to Batman. Check out the confirmation, below!
So, Zack Snyder was in the Knightmare scene all along. According to Vero user James RB25, the militia member who talks to Batman when the shipment of fake Kryptonite arrives sounds an awful lot like Zack Snyder. Taking to Vero to ask the director about the possible cameo, Snyder responded to admit that he did lend his vocal chops to the character in during the post-production process. The line in question? The simple utterance of "Yeah, we got it," when Batman asks, "Did you get it?"
Of course, if you want to hear it straight from Zack Snyder's mouth, then you can check out the full Knightmare sequence, below!
As mentioned earlier, this is not the first time that Zack Snyder has cameoed in one of his movies. He has a long history of injecting himself into his own films, particularly as gun-toting badasses in movies like Watchmen and Dawn of the Dead. However, it's also not the only Snyder cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as the filmmaker actually also included a shot of his own hands during the scene in which Bruce Wayne steals data off of Anatoli Knyazev's phone.
This reveal only adds to the long list of cameos that Zack Snyder has had in his DC movies over the years. We already knew about the aforementioned hand cameo, but he has also appeared in Wonder Woman as a World War I soldier and directed that pivotal Flash sequence in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. The guy has most certainly put his fingerprints on the DCEU, and this latest development continues to solidify that fact.
CinemaBlend will bring you any and all relevant updates about the future of the DCEU as new details are made available to us. With that in mind, make sure to watch out for the franchise's next major outing when James Wan's Aquaman takes DC fans to Atlantis later this year on December 21.
