'Star Wars' & Batman Mash-Up: Bad Robot Keeps the Game Going
Director Zack Snyder has been having fun on the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (which just moved up its release to March 25th, 2016), by mashing up his comic book film with the world of Star Wars. First he posted a picture of Henry Cavill wearing the Superman suit, but shrouded in a cloak and wielding a red lightsaber. Then last weekend he used action figures to create a scene on Tatooine with Batman and C-3PO. Well, the folks at Bad Robot decided to keep the game going by throwing up a pretty bad ass image of a familiar golden droid looking like The Caped Crusader, but with a different bat signal.
Here's the image that Bad Robot posted through their official Twitter account:

Again, this is either some awesome, innocent fun, or some brilliant viral marketing to keep two of the biggest films of the next two years in the limelight. Either way, as fans of Star Wars, Batman and Superman, we win by seeing these cool mash-ups of two universes that we'll never see combined on the big screen.
