Zack Snyder says League of Justice It was supposed to be the first of a trilogy, as the director had hoped at the time that the film would launch a new franchise similar to The Lord of the rings. This month, the four-hour cut dubbed Zack Snyder’s Justice League will premiere on HBO Max. It’s the end result of a popular Warner Bros. fan campaign for #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.
Speaking about the new movie in the latest issue of Total Film, Zack Snyder addressed how his League of Justice ties in with the other DCEU movies. The filmmaker clarifies that he sees the four-hour cut as a story that stands on its own, not necessarily sharing the same universe as Wonder Woman Y Aquaman, despite featuring some of the same characters.
“In many ways, I see this movie on its own. I love it. [Wonder Woman director] Patty [Jenkins] and I think you’ve done an amazing job, and [Aquaman director] James [Wan] They have done a great job: they have made their own films. But I just thought, ‘I’m going to stay the course that I thought was cool.’ There are a lot of things that I do differently than they do, but I only think about League of Justice as my own right now. It exists a little by itself. “
While elaborating on the continuity of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Snyder also divulges how the original film was supposed to launch a new blockbuster trilogy like Peter Jackson had done with The Lord of the Rings. Still, fans shouldn’t hold their breath when seeing Justice League 2 and 3 it will happen soon, as Snyder does not foresee that happening.
“For me, there is a trilogy of films that I rely on. Iron Man, Batman v superman, Y League of Justice they’re a continuity, and within that three-movie arc there’s a consistent tone. Frankly, [Justice League] It was meant to be the basis for two other movies, not that those movies are ever going to be photographed, I don’t see that happening, and it stays true to that concept. It was meant to be like Lord of the Rings and not just once. That’s the way I think about it. “
It’s easy to see why Warner Bros. is in no rush to develop more Justice League movies. The new four-hour cut cost around $ 70 million to complete, and most of the footage used had already been shot. As it was, the original League of Justice was one of the most expensive movies ever made with a budget in excess of $ 300 million, so it stands to reason that developing a follow-up of Zack Snyder’s Justice League it would cost a pretty penny.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League It will premiere on HBO Max on March 18. Snyder’s next movie, the zombie feature Army of the dead, will also launch on Netflix on Mary 21. The new issue of Total Film featuring Snyder’s interview will be released on Friday, March 5. This news comes to us from Radar Games.
