The buzz around Zack Snyder directed Snyder Cut Of Justice League refuses to die down even after a very long time since its release. The movie that hit HBO Max in early 2021 was a result of a collective effort of infinite fans from across the globe who had been wanting the cut ever since they saw the 2017 Joss Whedon version and we’re majorly unsatisfied with it. But turns out the movie has only churned out extreme reactions.
For the unversed, Zack was directing Justice League back in 2015-16 when he had to suddenly step down due to a personal tragedy. The filmmaker was soon replaced by Joss Whedon who released his version in 2017. The movie was received with a lot of criticism and that fueled the urge of watching the Snyder Cut amidst the fans of the franchise.
Now as per a Variety report, an insider says to get Zack Snyder Cut Of Justice League should never have happened. They say it only entrenched the fanbase against the studio. The report reads, “Privately, studio insiders have lamented that Zack Snyder’s Justice League never should’ve happened. Rather than quiet the unceasing online campaigning to #ReleasetheSnyderCut, the four-hour HBO Max feature only further entrenched the vocal and extremely online “Snyderverse” fanbase in opposition to the leadership at the studio in general and at DC in particular.”
However, in the past few days, it was also said that the movement to bring back Zack Snyder Cut Of Justice League and the SnyderVerse was fueled by bots and the number of accounts backing the movement was not all real people. The claims were wild and did get reactions too.
Meanwhile, DC publisher Jim Lee during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, talking about Zack Snyder and Justice League said, “You know what’s amazing, is we spent two years in lockdown, and here we are back at a convention, celebrating the art form, feeling good. I work on projects that are in development. I think the SnyderCut was Zack’s vision realized and it was a really satisfying story told, but there are no plans for work on that material. I was happy to help contribute to the pitch for the other stuff, and it was fun to see that stuff get out there cause I did that years ago. I actually thought it had been erased, but they had kept it in storage.”
