A year after its rise to HBO Max, a new report says studio insiders regret Zack Snyder’s Justice League for the consequences it created for the studios. During the many years that Warner Bros. made DC movies, the one that got the most attention is the Justice League Snyder movie. After kicking off the DC Extended Universe in 2013 with Steel man, WB began creating its own cinematic universe to rival the Marvel Cinematic Universe which would lead to the first feature film starring DC’s iconic team. However, once the studio began interfering with Snyder’s image and resulted in Joss Whedon Justice Leaguehe launched a massive online campaign to post the original cut.
After many years of campaigning for the release of “Snyder Cut”, the fandom got its wish when the studio created the 4 hour version of Justice League on HBO Max, with a budget of $70 million for visual effects, music and some additional photography. As Snyder’s film received more critical acclaim and success, there were debates over whether WB should have released the film due to fan demand, much of which was considered toxic. After its debut on HBO Max, the studio has no plans to continue with sequels, as its Justice League the movie was later set to exist in its own continuity, which was called the Snyderverse.
Since the completed merger of Warner Bros. Discovery, the DCEU’s vision is a bit hazy, given recent developments, including bat girl‘s cancellation and several release date changes. However, it seems some parts of the studio regret ever releasing Zack Snyder’s Justice League. In a new report from Varietystudio insiders “lamented” that the Snyder Cut should never have happened, believing instead that Warner Bros. should have skipped the online campaign rather than giving Snyder’s original Justice League film a platform. At the time of writing, the studio has made no statement to this report.
The bottom line is that studio insiders don’t necessarily reflect the entirety of Warner Bros. Discovery. These opinions might simply represent the employees who work at the studio, rather than the thoughts of key executives, including new CEO David Zaslav. Whether Zaslav and the new regime agree or disagree on Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueThe HBO Max release remains to be seen. Until Zaslav and senior officials at Warner Bros. Discovery are questioned directly by the press, it is not known what the current society thinks of it.
When it comes to Zack Snyder’s Justice League getting a platform, the commentary has always been about the vocal minority who took extreme measures including harassment, death threats and toxic behavior. But that doesn’t represent an entire fanbase, as it’s worth considering that toxicity exists in many major fandoms, including game of thrones and star wars. As much emphasis is placed on the negative side in the media, but there is also the positive side of the movement, which raised $500,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in honor of Snyder’s late daughter. , Autumn, who died by suicide during the Justice League production. Audiences can celebrate the film’s first anniversary with Zack Snyder’s Justice League available to stream on HBO Max and purchase on digital, 4K Ultra-HD, Blu-ray and DVD platforms now.
