Now, DCEU directorial head honcho Zack Snyder has long been fond of posting Star Wars-ified takes on some of DC's most iconic heroes to social media, with he and J.J. Abrams having spent much of the past year teasing one another with gloriously geeky mash-up images featuring characters from the two mega-franchises. That fondness, though, also just so happens to betray an intriguing element of Snyder's thinking — one that might just suggest something pretty darned important about his approach to heroism...and . Y'see...

Zack Snyder Apparently Thinks That Batman Would Be A Sith Lord In The 'Star Wars' Universe

That, at least, is the most obvious implication of the above image, which Snyder recently posted to the social media site Vero. After all, while it's neat to see Batman hanging around holding a lightsaber, it's worth considering that he's quite obviously holding a variant on Darth Maul's iconic double-bladed red 'saber. Which, in turn, would seem to suggest that Snyder either a) doesn't pay much attention to visual details, which is patently untrue, b) doesn't give a crap about Star Wars, which makes it a little weird that he keeps posting stuff related to it, or c) Zack Snyder thinks that Batman would be a Sith Lord. Which is, y'know, kind of weird.

Could have a point, though? After all, as Master Yoda once so sagely warned:

"Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Angers leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."

Which, if you think about it, pretty much describes Bruce Wayne's entire life. So, folks, you heard it here first: Batman may be a good dude, but he's probably also a Sith.

Actually, come to think of it, maybe he and Kylo Ren should grab lunch sometime. That kid could really use a better mentor.
