The new Justice League cut from Zack Snyder is around the corner! And details are surfacing the close we get to its release on HBO Max. The latest information we are getting is from Zack Snyder himself, where recently he spoke about the first version of Justice League. Although he is addressed as the director he has not seen it. After a tragedy in his family letting him with low spirits to the point of quitting the project, Joss Whedon “came to the rescue” or at least he thought he was doing so.
The Justice League film we all know from 2017 saw the light and many were not happy about it. Executive producer Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder, the director’s wife and producing partner said to him directly ‘You can never see that movie,’ And apparently he didn't and has no plans on watching it.
“How am I supposed to introduce six characters and an alien with potential for world domination in two hours? I mean, I can do it, it can be done. Clearly, it was done, But I didn’t see it.” You didn't miss anything Zack. We can assure you. Whedon is now confronting a scandalous affair, where actress Charisma Carpenter is signaling him as abusive. You can read about this here.
The family tragedy that hit Snyder was the loss of her daughter, the director has declared that this same event and his daughter herself were the ones that brought him the strength to continue working “At the end of the movie, it says ‘For Autumn,’” Snyder said. “Without her, this absolutely would not have happened.”
Some rumors emerged, saying that an executive from the studio has revealed the feelings about the Justice League Film from Whedon. “When we got to see what Joss actually did, it was stupefying. The robber on the rooftop—so goofy and awful. The Russian family—so useless and pointless. Everyone knew it. It was so awkward because nobody wanted to admit what a piece of sh*t it was.”
Then, after such an awful film, WarnerBros spoke to Snyder and asked him to release his cuts of the movie but without special effects, nor music, nor anything else special. “I was like, ‘That’s a no, that’s a hard no…,” Snyder said. “Here’s why. Three reasons: One, you get the internet off your back, which is probably your main reason for wanting to do this. Two, you get to feel vindicated for making things right, I guess, on some level. And then three, you get a shitty version of the movie that you can point at and go, ‘See? It’s not that good anyway. So maybe I was right.’ I was like, ‘No chance. I would rather just have the Snyder cut be a mythical unicorn for all time.’”
Warner accepted but in the end, the director had to quit his salary. “I’m not getting paid,” "I didn’t want to be beholden to anyone, and it allowed me to keep my negotiating powers with these people pretty strong.”
