AceShowbiz - There was a moment when Bruce Wayne's hand in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" wasn't Ben Affleck's hand at all, but director Zack Snyder's instead. The director's hand was featured in the scene in which Bruce Wayne (played by Ben Affleck) visited an underground fight club to track some information about Superman.
At that time, the camera shows a hand picking up a cellphone. Viewers thought it was Ben Affleck's hand, but it turned out that Snyder made a cameo for the shot. Or rather, a part of Snyder.
The movie's cinematographer Larry Fong has shared the fun fact in his Twitter.
When Fong is asked why Affleck didn't do the shot himself, Fong explains that either the actor doesn't want to or because the director loves to replace him.
The thing is, actors prefer use their time for the scenes in which they can be seen. They leave tiny shots to someone else, and directors sometimes like to take that part. Snyder is seemingly one of the directors who actually likes making such small cameo.
It is also revealed that Snyder was the one holding Batmobile headlights shining on Superman's face.
Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" was released in March 2016. The movie featured Ben Affleck as Caped Crusader Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Despite poor reviews from critics, the movie has grossed $873,3 million worldwide. Snyder's upcoming project for DC Extended Universe is "Justice League" in which Ben Affleck and co-stars will reprise their roles. "Justice League" is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on November 17, 2017.
