Zack Snyder Reveals More Details On His Original Plan For Justice League
Some fans still can’t get over that “what would have been” with the Justice League movie. To add more fuel to the fire, Snyder reveals some new details about his original plan for Justice League during a live Q&A (via ComicBook).
“The original Justice League that Chris [Terrio] and I wrote, we didn’t even shoot,” Snyder said. “The actual idea, the hard, hard idea, the scary idea, we never filmed because the studio was like ‘That’s crazy,’”
The director offered even more details on his original vision for the film before Joss Whedon joined the project, explaining how the villain Darkseid factored into his story. According to Snyder, the studio generally approved his Darkseid story, but they disliked the idea of the Justice League splitting up, especially after Batman v Superman‘s not-so-good reception.
“It’s a long story. The truth is that, the Knightmare sequence in this movie was always my idea that all of that would eventually be explained … and that we would end up in the distance future, where Darkseid has taken over Earth and where Superman has succumbed to the Anti-Life (Equation) … There was a few members of the Justice League that had survived in that world, that they were fighting. Batman broke a pact with Cyborg because something happened… They were working on an equation to jump Flash back to tell Bruce…”
