BATMAN V SUPERMAN Director Zack Snyder Says That Bruce Wayne Uses Sex As A Drug To Forget Pain

Zack Snyder continues to offer insights into the decisions he made as director of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, revealing today the deeper meaning of some artwork used in a scene with Bruce Wayne.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder has been using Vero as a means to offer fans a bit of insight into some of the decisions he made while in the director’s chair for the controversial film. In a post today, Snyder shared some deeper thoughts regarding his version of Bruce Wayne (played by Ben Affleck) in the movie.

Snyder posted a photo of the scene where Bruce Wayne wakes up from a nightmare with a seemingly random woman in bed next to him. The hero then pops some pain killers which he downs with wine.

If that wasn't a clear enough indication that he’s a pretty broken figure, Snyder revealed that there’s some artwork above the bed to further the point. You’ll notice there’s a painting by Robert Mapplethorpe, which, according to Snyder, represents sex as a type of drug for the character.



Snyder wrote: "Here's an easy one: The Mapplethorpe above his bed I chose to represent the erotic as a drug that Bruce uses sex to momentarily forget his pain.”

Snyder has certainly received his fair share of criticism for the Batman v Superman, but the director seems to remain passionate about his work. Yesterday, he revealed why Batman used a spear against Superman during their battle. Hopefully he continues to share the deeper meanings behind his directorial decisions for the movie.
