Filmmaker Zack Snyder is afraid to see co-director Joss Whedon’s shot would appear in his Justice Leauge cut.
Man of Steel and Batman v Superman director, Zack Snyder, had to quit the post-projection of Justice League due to his step-daughter Autumn Snyder passed away at the age of eight.
After quitting, Joss Whedon, who made 2012’s Avengers and its 2015 sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, was hired to complete the movie, and fans blamed Whedon for the cause of the movie’s failure.
During an online conversation of the director’s panel, Snyder admitted that he still hasn’t seen the theatrical cut of Justice League and won’t, because he is afraid to see any of the material Whedon shot would appear in his cut.
Snyder never used Whedon’s name directly, and he said that his decision based on a family tragedy. However, he added that the process of the committee stepped down as a director of Justice Leauge after his step daughter’s death.
Here’s what Zack Snyder said:
“I would set the movie on fire; I’d destroy it before I used a single frame that I did not photograph.”
About a month ago, during a special online meeting with respected actor Patrick Stewart, Superman actor Henry Cavill shared his thoughts about the re-edited movie of Justice Leauge, and he said that he is looking forward to seeing the Snyder cut. He said:
“Oh the Snyder Cut, the famous-slash-infamous-slash-all-sorts-of-things Snyder Cut. I can’t really tell you anything aside from the fact that all I know is that HBO Max will be releasing it, I believe, and it’ll be Zack’s final vision for the movie, and I don’t know anything more than that.”
“I’m just really happy that Zack got to realize his vision. I think it’s important for a filmmaker and a storyteller to have their intended vision released and shown to the world, and I’m looking forward to seeing it myself. It’s been quite the ordeal.”
