Although fans have campaigned for the Justice League’s “Snyder Cut” to be released for more than three years, few industry insiders believed it would ever happen. Last year Warner Bros. stunned everyone when it announced that the film would actually be released as a four-hour feature on HBO Max. But loud Zack Snyder’s Justice League Producer Deborah Snyder, the original plan was to take the unfinished version of the project and put it online.
“As they approached us, we had to get an idea of what it was originally [the studio was] like ‘you can just put the cut [out] the way it is … Zack says: “No.” It’s like a mishmash. We can’t use the music. If I do this, I’ll do it right or it won’t be right. ”
Snyder’s statement confirms what fans had long suspected: Warner’s intention with the release of the Snyder Cut was not to honor the filmmaker’s fully realized vision, as the studio claimed in a public statement, but simply the public’s interest in the project to get more eyeballs turned on HBO Max.Deborah Snyder went on to explain how they finally managed to convince the studio to go all out in order to properly complete Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
“But figuring out in secret because we didn’t know if it was going to be real. But just to find out the cost of the visual effects, and we did this kind of ourselves so we could put together a presentation that we could go to the studio with, and a big part of the presentation was the fans and what that represented to them. I wish they had less time because then we wouldn’t be so under the gun to do it. They still took months to do it to find out. ”
Judging by the movie’s online buzz, Warner’s investment in completing Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which is reportedly worth $ 70 million, appears to have paid off. There are even rumors that Warner will allow Zack Snyder to complete the remaining two films in his planned Justice League trilogy if the first film is deemed successful enough.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League stars as Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ray Porter as Darkseid, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
