The super amazing series ‘Justice League’ is coming back with a director’s cut of the movie. Zack Snyder was to direct the upcoming this movie. But he had to leave the production midway due to a family tragedy. Joss Whedon, the screenwriter then, took over from him as the director. However, when the film released, it did not look anything like what Snyder had envisioned it to be.
That’s the reason why fans believe that Snyder had enough material for the movie. So much so, that it could turn into a complete film. Hence, fans are in for a treat as ‘Justice League’ will be shown from Snyder’s eyes. Hence, the name, ‘The Snyder Cut’.
Director of ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v/s Superman’:
Zack Snyder is known for movies like ‘Man of Steel’, which starred Henry Cavill as Superman and ‘Batman v/s Superman’ which had Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as Batman and Superman, respectively.
The director had such a huge fan-base that fans began a petition to bring back the Snyder version of ‘Justice League’! The matter went out of control when fans installed a huge billboard at Times Square!
Warner Bros. had to heed to their fans’ requests and hence brought in the Snyder version.
‘The Snyder Cut’ Explained:
After Zack Snyder stepped down as director to tend to a personal emergency, ‘Avengers’ director Joss Whedon, who was then the screenwriter for Snyder’s movie, took over as the director. However, things didn’t go as planned and the film opened to poor reviews from the fans. So, they believed that a Snyder version of the movie still existed and started trending the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.
Overwhelmed by the responses, Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter (THR) that this was an “unprecedented and a brave move”.
