The animated movie Ramayana that released in the year 1992 has influenced Hollywood movies more than we can ever think.
Zack Snyder, director of Batman vs. Superman, is a huge fan of Ramayana. Especially the 1992 animated movie, the tales of Ram had a great influence on him, and it can be seen in his hit movie, 300. From the animation to the small elements, well, the movie says it all, and it is a bucket list movie anyway.
Just when we thought it is just Zack, we realized we were wrong enough in the first place to even assume that. Movies like Hell Boy, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and The Matrix, are all influenced greatly by Ramayana.
