"It Will Be an Entirely New Thing": Zack Snyder's $20M-Plus 'Justice League' Cut Plans Revealed

MAY 20, 2020 11:06AM by Borys Kit

HBO Max will debut the project in 2021 — possibly in a four-hour director's cut or in six TV-style "chapters" — as the helmer gets the gang back together with the original postproduction crew to score, cut and finish visual effects.

It was very early on a Monday morning in November when director Zack Snyder and his wife and producing partner, Deborah Snyder, received a call from their agent. Let’s be a bit more precise. It was 7 a.m. But more importantly, it was the day after the second anniversary of the release of Justice League, the DC superhero movie that Snyder was forced to exit due to a family emergency, which was then substantially reshot and retooled by replacement director Joss Whedon.

In the time since its release, something unusual happened: A growing movement of fans, rallied by the hashtag #ReleasetheSnyderCut, had called, agitated, petitioned — even bought a Times Square billboard and chartered a plane to fly a banner over Comic-Con — for Snyder’s version to be released. And on the film's second anniversary, the hashtag had its biggest day ever — with even the movie's stars Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck adding their voices on Twitter.

I'm pretty confident that it will still be terrible



This has been a recurring meme for so long its actually funny they are releasing it.
That said, that movie was all kinds of terrible, I cant imagine this cut making it any better. It was plain bad, not even "so bad its good" material.



Fuck yeah!



Still, be a turd. Just a different take on the same turd. Snyder makes visually interesting terrible films. What would be different thsi time?

No stupid looking CGI Superman face... Hans Zimmer/Junkie XL themes (thank god, because Danny Elfman's soundtrack was generic and unmemorable)

It will at least be consistent and not a jarring tonal difference from the previous films.


the soundtrack alone will make it a much better film. Not saying it will be great, but it will be better than what we got. And hey, a lot of fans are happy and will support this, so what is the harm exactly?

Back when he got taken off of justice league the rumour going around was that it was borderline unwatchable.

300 and Sucker Punch had a great look to them. Batman Dream Sequence looked cool. Sucker Punch had a lot of great imagery but it was a bad film, it looked like a live action anime. Batman's dream looked nice but added nothing. It was nothing. So yes he does.

C'mon now.  As underwhelmed as I've been with each of his films (that I've seen), it's not that hard to see he's got some visual chops.
