It’s fair to say that without the support of the fans, the Snyder Cut of Justice League wouldn’t have happened. Director Zack Snyder was forced to step down from the film over a family tragedy. However, Joss Whedon’s reshoots didn’t make the film into a larger blockbuster as hoped. Next year, Snyder will revisit the film and deliver his extended cut to HBO Max.
While speaking with Beyond the Trailer, Snyder alluded to the challenge of making his Justice League cut live up to fan expectations.
“I think really the big pressure on me is just for [Justice League] to be exactly true to itself,” admitted Snyder. “And I know that sounds obvious but we as storytellers and as filmmakers a lot of times there’s a lot of different powers that push and move and change what you’re doing as you’re doing it. But I think with this process and this project, it really is an amazing opportunity just to, and what I think the fans want, is just a very pure and exact version of the movie.”
Additionally, Snyder noted that his cut of Justice League won’t rewrite the continuity of the big screen DC Extended Universe. Instead, it will chart out its own path.
“Frankly, the DC cinematic universe has branched like a tree and blossomed and grown in amazing and great ways,” noted Snyder. “But for me, where [Justice League] falls, I believe that it really sort of represents its own path. It’s kind of separate now from the DC cinematic universe continuity. And I think that’s a good thing.”
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is expected to hit HBO Max in 2021.
