You can click the story here, but here are the photos from the magazine (I will update it when HQ photos surface):
“Zack Snyder recalls the first time he pitched the idea, in a meeting with franchise co-captains Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer, it was only meant as an Easter egg. I said, ‘What about at the end of the movie we do a scene where there’s a crate full of kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor,’ says Snyder. Everyone was like…‘Okaay.’ Once you say it out loud it’s a problem because you can’t unsay it.
“Ben Affleck plays an older, wearier Caped Crusader, one drawn at least in part from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. He’s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it, says Affleck. But this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical. Worried that Superman’s unequaled power makes him more of a potential fascistic overlord than the hero we need, he makes it his duty to take him out of the sky for good.”
“And building a franchise into a potential behemoth is no easy work. It’s a marathon. No, it’s a marathon within a marathon, says Snyder. Do you know that race from Death Valley to the top of Mount Whitney? It’s, like, 100 miles and it’s from the lowest point in the continental United States to the highest. It’s crazy. Anyway, it’s like that.”
