Until Zack Snyder’s departure from the production of “Justice League” earlier this year due to a family tragedy, the project remained very much his. Even as Joss Whedon was brought on to pen the reshoots, it was still a Snyder film until he stepped way.
From that point the studio and those involved have been careful to say it has remained Snyder’s baby, even as more and more it looks as though Whedon’s reshoots were incredibly extensive and clashed with some elements of Snyder’s original vision.
“On a more serious note I did enjoy the movie, although it is clearly not what it could have been due to the meddling of Warner Brothers and the forced comedy. The run time was my biggest gripe with the movie, with events that should take a long time over in a flash; but still definitely a fun movie to watch, and would recommend it.”
Fans of course are pushing for a Snyder cut of the film via a petition which has just passed the 100,000 signature mark, but it seems increasingly clear that such a cut doesn’t exist beyond only a rough early (and decidedly longer) version. Snyder’s take was incomplete so it’s unlikely an alternate cut will appear – that said more deleted scenes of Snyder’s may pop up on home video or online in coming months.
