Ezra Miller Makes A Jab At Batman v Superman’s Martha Sequence

It looks like the Martha joke has carried over to the Justice League.

Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and Ezra Miller (Flash) all just recently gathered around for a group interview with Heroic Gateway.

During the discussion, the cast of the DC Extended Universe's most recent installment was asked about which other Justice League member they'd like to play if they had the chance and Miller made a jab at Batman v Superman saying that he'd like to be half the Dark Knight and half Superman.

"I'd probably go as Batman and Superman," the actor said, laughing. Miller went on pretending to fight himself, slapping his face this way and that, only to give up after one side of himself yells out "Martha! Martha!"

It's a pretty funny answer that fires shots at Batman v Superman. Zack Snyder's superhero movie ended up being an extremely divisive DCEU installment, and one of the scenes that fans found fault in was one where Batman stopped beating up Superman after the Kryptonian called out the name of his mother, Martha. A lot of fans felt like it was a pretty convenient and trite coincidence that the mothers of both superheroes shared the same name and the whole scene gave birth to a lot of memes online. Seems like the joke's managed to make its way to the Justice League too.

Justice League is currently screening in cinemas.
