HBO Max may be getting all of Warner Bros. Pictures’ theatrical releases day and date this year, but its most anticipated project remains Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The director recently summoned several cast members to shoot additional scenes for the film. However, the new scenes may not be as extensive as originally thought. Via Comic Book Movie, Snyder told Comic Book Debate that only two of those scenes are new.
“A very small portion of the movie is the new stuff that I shot,” said Snyder. “Like 80-something percent of the movie has never been seen by anyone, visual effects wise, and that’s not even including the scenes that you guys have never seen that don’t have visual effects. That part’s really exciting, and I can’t wait for everyone to experience this giant scale adventure the way I intended.”
Synder also indicated that one of the two scenes involved Jared Leto’s Joker.
“First of all, let’s just clarify, there’s like two bits that I added,” continued Snyder. “One bit that I had really sort of hoped to shoot in post but never got the chance to, and then one scene with Jared. This whole little piece with Jared. The truth is, the rest of the four hours of the movie are really just what I shot.”
“The truth is I was in a struggle with the studio, you know, and famously we had a lot of stuff we had to do, and make it funny, and all that stuff,” added Snyder. “I just kind of, in a slightly subversive way, just kept also doing my thing at the same time so I would have, what I believed would be closer to what I wanted to do without any influence.”
Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut will hit HBO Max in March 2021. Additionally, it will be released in four episodes that will run one hour each.
