The Force Is Strong With Zack Snyder’s Star WarsBatman v Superman Mashup

Will Superman resist the Dark Side?

If you’ve ever wondered what side of the Force your favorite superheroes would be on, Zach Snyder has your answer. Well, at least about Batman and Superman. In a new mashup trailer released Thursday, the director gives fans a glimpse of what a Star Wars-inspired Dawn of Justice movie would look like.

Beginning with a voiceover of Emperor Palpatine’s iconic, “There is a great disturbance in the Force,” line, the video — titled Dark Side Knight Vs. SuperJedi: Dawn Of The Alliance — shows a Sith Lord Batman attempting to convert a Jedi Superman to the Dark Side.

“In anticipation of Rogue One, I wanted to share a little Star Wars fan film I made after J.J. [Abrams] released his Hunka Junk mash-up,” Snyder wrote, referencing a 2014 Abrams-created Force Awakens clip that included a nod to Batman v Superman.

Watch the full trailer below.
