There are few blockbuster filmmakers with as divided an audience as Zack Snyder. From Man of Steel to Batman v. Superman, Snyder’s films have sharply divided audiences and critics. In a recent interview, Snyder weighed in on the divisive nature of his work and admitted he does not pay any heed to criticisms because, in his mind, none of the criticisms are valid.
The nature of the divided reaction to Snyder’s movies has resulted in a rare occurrence in Hollywood, where Snyder was first removed from the directorial position for 2017’s Justice League mid-way through filming, and then brought back three years later by Warner Bros. at the behest of fans to finish Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
But even though Warner Bros. appears to be in his corner now, Snyder remains skeptical of their intentions. In a separate interview with VanityFair, the filmmaker revealed that the studio wanted him to release an unfinished cut of the Snyder Cut, which he refused to do for three major reasons.
Now that the movie is set to release in less than a month, audiences will finally get to see what all the three-year-long fuss was about. Zack Snyder’s Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ray Porter as Darkseid, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. The film arrives on HBO Max on March 18.
