Zack Snyder Says His Justice League Will Feature Zero Studio Compromises

Over the weekend, Zack Snyder responded to several questions on Vero in regard to the upcoming release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and dropped several interesting tidbits. You can check out the full posts below, but we’ll break them down here as well.

What Snyder revealed about Justice League in his posts (per DR Movie News on Twitter):

1. The original Steppenwolf design will return

2. He is already deep in VFX work on the film

3. The upcoming release of Justice League will be 100% his vision with absolutely no compromises

4. We will likely get a new teaser before the upcoming DC FanDome on August 22

5. Junkie XL will return to score the film

6. Justice League will include more Knightmare sequences with Darkseid and Superman

7. Kevin Costner will likely return as Jonathon Kent for a brief cameo

The most interesting of all of this information is the bit about compromise. After Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice failed to match Marvel’s The Avengers in terms of box office revenue, Warner Bros. insisted that Snyder lighten the tone of Justice League. As such, Snyder made compromises in order to appease studio heads. So, even if Snyder had released his film in 2017, it likely still would not have been his intended vision.

Now, with the freedom given to him by HBO Max, Snyder has full reign to release the Justice League he wanted to release all along. Whether it paves the way for future sequels and includes the darker bits he has teased about for years, or merely serves as a conclusion to a 3-part story remains anyone’s guess.

Snyder also replied to a lot of questions with winky emojis. He’s obviously teasing fans, or maybe there will indeed be a Green Lantern appearance; and a sequence of Superman destroying the world under Darkseid’s authority.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League will reportedly cost around $20-30 million in order to properly finish the editing and visual effects of the director’s original vision. The original post-production crew is also expected to return along with the cast members to record additional dialogue for the cut. No new footage will be shot, however.

Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League, which features a screenplay from Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio, stars Affleck as Batman, Cavill as Superman, Gadot as Wonder Woman, Momoa as Aquaman, Miller as The Flash, Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.

Released in November 2017, the film earned mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, praising the action and performances from Gadot and Miller while criticizing every other aspect of the film, namely the inconsistent tone that many fault Joss Whedon (The Avengers) for after taking over directorial duties from Snyder. With a large budget of $300 million and a break-even point of $750 million, the film is considered a box office bomb having grossed only $658 million.
