The studio behind the DC films “Justice League” will be releasing the original director Zack Snyder’s cut of the film. This cut saw superheroes like Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg sharing the same screen.
Zack had to quit the production halfway due to a family tragedy.
Director Zack Snyder himself announced the news on a live Q & A on Wednesday. Following a virtual screening of his Henry Cavil lead Superman movie “Man of Steel”. Zack had already completed the majority of the work on the “Justice League” in 2016.
But has to step away from the post-production and editing due to a family tragedy. After which Warner Bros brought in Avengers Helmer Joss Whedon to complete the job. And the varying styles led fans to believe that Zack Snyder might have a much darker take on the project.
Justice League was not received by critics very well
At a $300 million budget the film grossed over $650 million worldwide. But it just could not resonate with the critics earning only a 40% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. The DC’s answer to Marvel Studio’s massive Avengers was largely perceived as a failure.
As it missed to lead to a creative pivot among the tightly connected cinematic universe. Which brought more benefit to the loosely connected collections of comic book adaptation movies. Giving Todd Philips’s global smash Joker, which earned Joaquin Phoenix Oscar for best actor. And grossed over a billion-dollar at the global box office.
