Whether Zack Snyder was fired as director of Justice League or he left the production of his own accord following a family tragedy really doesn’t matter anymore. The much-reviled film, a “Frankenstein’s Monster” of a movie made up of Snyder’s footage and new footage, shot by Joss Whedon, is all but forgotten in the wake of the surge in interest in the “Snyder Cut” of the film debuting on HBO Max next year.
During Saturday’s Justice Con 2020 panel discussion about the movie, Snyder promised that the movie would be 100% his vision, with none of Whedon’s footage.
I would set the movie on fire, I’d destroy it before I used a single frame that I did not photograph.
And, while the teaser trailer for Justice League won’t be revealed until DC Fandome on August 22nd, Snyder did share the much-talked-about black suited Superman, an homage to the suit worn by the Man of Steel when he returned from the dead in the comic books after falling to Doomsday.
