Zack Snyder’s reason to use “v” in “Batman v Superman” is dumb

So we all know that the upcoming Zack Snyder follow up to Man of Steel, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” has the most awkward title for a superhero film ever. His use of the legal “v” instead of the traditional “vs.” abbreviation for “versus” has been the subject of a lot of ridicule. Now you maybe asking yourself “Maybe Snyder has a good reason for this odd choice?”

Well you’re both right and wrong. Because Zack Snyder sure thinks he does.

But he doesn’t.

Snyder talked to USA Today, and attempted to explain:

The director can’t say exactly how the relationship between the two superheroes evolves, “but suffice it to say there is a ‘v’ in between their names” in the movie title, Snyder says. He explains that having the “v” instead of “vs.” is a way “to keep it from being a straight ‘versus’ movie, even in the most subtle way.”

This, of course, is stupid. Either abbreviation means “versus,” so no matter what the title still implies a straight versus moving. Snyders attempt to differentiate it as such makes me question his intelligence.

And that makes me question his ability to direct ANY film, let alone another one in the DC Carnival of Sadness.

Just kidding. I was questioning that a long time ago.

Like when Suckerpunch came out.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
