OK, so there’s SPOILERS in here. folks…
Ok, so remember the scene in Batman V Superman when Clark’s mum is working and gets kidnapped by Lex’s goons? Well a lot of people wondered why Superman couldn’t use his super hearing and sight to look for her.
Well, director Zack Snyder has talked about a ‘very dark scene’ that ultimately was cut from the movie, that explained it all.
Watch it below int he video or, in case you can’t watch for whatever reason, here’s what he says:
“I think all the way – to me, from Metropolis to Smallville is probably just on the edge of his range of hearing. Also the clutter of the city makes it difficult as well.”
“We had a scene that we cut from the movie where he tries to look for her when he finds out that Lex has got her,” Snyder continued. “It was a slightly dark scene that we cut out because it sort of represented this dark side. Because when he was looking for his mom he heard all the cries of all the potential crimes going on in the city, you know when you look.
“I kind of like the idea that he’s taught himself not to look because if he looks it’s just neverending, right? You have to know when, as Superman, when to intervene and when not to. Or not when not to, you can’t be everywhere at once, literally you can’t be everywhere at once, so he has to be really selective in a weird way about where he chooses to interfere.”
Good enough? Let us know…
