“Justice League” Snyder Cut 40 Minute Online Video

Snyder

YouTube channel Flashback FilmMaking has put together a 40 minute video showcasing all the known footage, behind-the-scenes material and other details known about the infamous “Snyder Cut” of the “Justice League” movie.

As you’ll recall, director Zack Snyder was forced to stand down before completing the film, due to the untimely death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in to finish off the film, reshooting many scenes and making a number of changes to the script. Knowing Snyder’s version would have been much different to what we saw, the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut hashtag has been used over the past two years with fans and cast members calling for Warner Bros. to release Snyder’s version in some capacity.

That is just stupid and that movie still sux lol. Dont mean to be a debbie downer and if someone likes it be my guest but I can’t even look at superman in this movie cause of his lip. That’s why I still haven’t bought Justice Leaugue the movie nor will I ever own it. Superman,Henry and us fans deserve better then that Frankenstein of a movie that made no sense what so ever.

I haven’t seen this 40 min documentary presentation yet, but I’m reminded of the death of Superman Lives documentary.

Well the majority of the mustache fiasco was more so apparent at the very beginning. I thought even with it’s unanswered ending it was at least watchable. But I would have preferred the continuation of where Zack was headed.

WOW..WOW and WOW!!!! After seeing that all I can say it was a travesty to what they did to Zack’s cut. One of the biggest if not the biggest bone headed moves we will probably ever witness. A totally different movie. I for one, WANT ZACK’S CUT even more so!!!

IMO just because what the WB tried to Frankenstein and rush out was so bad does not make Snyders vision good by default. A change in direction was needed but WB rarely ever seems to learn the right lessons from their mis-steps.

Very well said. I mean it would have at least been consistent if they would have just stuck with Snyder’s vision but imho it still would have sucked but it would have been at the very least consistent. I mean JL didn’t even feel like a continuation of BvS. It was just so odd. I really hope however that the WB will do extended universe movies in the future.I hope they dont totally abandon extended universe movies. I think now that they are on the right track. But we will know for sure if they are after these DC movies… Read more »

Well you know Snyder has a particular “style” of movie making. And he was hired to apply it to the DC characters. As far as I’m concerned the miss-steps you mention aren’t from the beginning with MoS or BvS but not continuing with his planned JL. If you look at the 40 minute video you can plainly see a ton of effort when into it. And to think all that effort was shelved just to re-call all the cast and basicialy undo everything Zack had done only to have JossW piece together a movie that was far removed from Zack’s… Read more »

“style” is one word for it.

Warner Brothers made a huge mistake by no letting Zach Synder finish the completion of JL. Warner Brother need to do the right thing by releasing the Synder Cut of JL. I want to see Darkseid. I want to see Superman wearing the Black suit. Earth calling Warner Brothers.

I’m no fan of Snyder. He’s was the absolute wrong guy for the job, and never should have been allowed anywhere near Superman, Batman or anyone for that matter, really. Superman especially, though. Having said that, I will say his cut of JL probably would have been slightly better then Whedon’s in that it wouldn’t have been the chopped up mess the film turned into, and would have fit better thematically with the first two movies. Make no mistake, though, it’s still like choosing between a whole turd sandwich, or only half of one.

Yea..then we could have gotten from some one else the same old thing. The object was to bring a more realistic and new take to these characters. His Batman WAS the perfect example. As for his version being “slightly” better. Talk about hateful under rating. And your final sentence in about as nonsensical as they come. “Thematically” no relevance at all.

Nothing wrong with a more realistic approach. Bastardizing the characters, though, as Snyder did, is the main issue. I’ve said it before, but when Nolan and Goyer came on board for MOS one of the prevailing concerns that most people seemed to have was they hoped they weren’t going to make it too dark/serious and turn Superman into Batman. Well, that’s pretty much exactly what they did. Although, that’s probably doing Batman a disservice because while he might be dark and brooding, he does have strong convictions and can be hopeful at times. I mean, Nolan’s Batman films had more… Read more »

Nolan’s Batman films had more hope and joy in them then Snyder’s morose Superman ever did along with turning Superman into Batman?? I’m laughing at that. And trying a different approach doesn’t mean bastardizing. Snyder’s approach actually brought Superman’s character into a more modern realistic time. Yea they can put together some cheery cheese-o-la story (think Super Friends) and there’s probably some audience that would like that drivel(you). I makes total sense that you probably loved the chopped up un-Snyder like version of the JL we got.

I literally said Snyder’s probably would have been better because Whedon’s is actually that BAD. Not much better because it’s still Snyder, but better none the less… Read more »

Why does it have to be a choice between two supid extremes? DKR or Adam West. Watchmen or Super Friends. Grimdark misery or high camp?

As for “realism” there’s more to reality than darkness.

You’re right about reality. BUT, we are talking about a comic book movie aren’t we? In this case we’ve had plenty of past features presented in a basic way. The fact that Zack presented things in a different way outside of the past, I don’t think that alone qualifies for a negative bashing. I mean the over all structures of his movies look great and yes the story line(s) have been on the darker side if you want to use than description but I don’t think they’re out side of the times we’re in.

There’s some conflicting information in there, but it’s nice to see someone once had a vision for that movie, instead of just throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks.

Snyder likes the big epic stuff, not just in terms of visuals, but also storytelling. I appreciate that.
