Deborah Snyder Says Zack Snyder’s Justice League Was About Closure
2021 has been the year when fans finally saw Zack Snyder’s vision for Justice League. The long-awaited Snyder Cut debuted on HBO Max on March 18. It presented what Snyder planned for his movie before he was forced to leave the project in 2017, and more. At the same time, his wife, Deborah, was producing the film. It goes without saying that she also stepped away from Justice League, following her husband. Now, she has opened up about the recently released Zack Snyder’s Justice League in an extensive interview with THR. Among the many topics, she tackled how streaming services have had an impact on creative freedom and how to measure the success of a movie.
“There is a lot of other content the streamers are getting made that wouldn’t get made if it wasn’t for them,” she said. “In my experience, the creative freedom and support along the way – not a fight, support — for the director’s vision, has been really great. In terms of the box office, yeah, it’s good to know, but you usually know if people like it or not. HBO — it’s interesting that they haven’t reported the numbers, but there have been a bunch of articles saying how massive Justice League has been. ”
She then explained that — as much successful as the movie was — Zack Snyder’s Justice League was about completing Snyder’s vision. It also gave the Snyder family closure for a project that started with 2013’s Man of Steel.
“The love from the fans for that film and for Zack’s vision and to be able to complete that vision was the why of it for us. That’s been an amazing experience to see people enjoy it and the love. We had been developing this world and Zack’s version of that world for over ten years. It was kind of a weird ending, or lack of ending. So for us, it was a nice way to get closure and also for people to see what it was meant to be.”
