Earlier this year, and after a heated fan campaign, Zack Snyder's Justice League finally released. Fans were given what they'd been after all along: a chance to see the director's original vision for the DC superhero movie.
The result was a four-hour long descent into the deepest reaches of Snyder's mind. Bizarre music choices. Epic action. Big beefy CG aliens. Slow-motion. Oh God, so much slow motion. It wasn't my cup of tea, as you can probably tell, but I'm honestly thrilled for the people that finally got what they wished for and loved every second of it. Only a knob would want to take that joy away from the fans.
Remind yourself of Zack Snyder's Justice League by having a peek at the action-packed trailer below:
Predictably, the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League has steered the conversation to other Snyder projects that may or not benefit from an extended cut that allows the director to do everything the way he always wanted to. He's already confirmed that there are no plans for a Snyder Cut of the upcoming Army Of The Dead, because it's apparently already awesome. He has, however, hinted that there may be work to be done on his 2011 cult hit, Sucker Punch.
"That is a movie I wrote with my friend Steve Shibuya and Steve and I had been talking about the movie for a long time actually because the movie to me is, you know, people don't acknowledge it, but it's a protest movie in a lot of ways," Snyder said in a new interview with Vanity Fair.
"It's a movie about genre like I was asked at the time, why did you dress the girls like that and I always go 'I didn't dress them like that, you did.' I always saw it as an indictment of, in some ways, popular culture. I think at the time I was criticized for it being the opposite, like some sort of sexist like, rant, but it was fun to make and I still love it to this day. That was the first time where I really faced like a true radical restructuring of the film for it to be more commercial and there's a director's cut of that movie that has yet to be released. I'll say that out loud."
With a critic and user score of 22% and 47% respectively on Rotten Tomatoes, it's clear the theatrical cut of Sucker Punch is not Snyder's most celebrated work. All the more reason for a new cut then? We'll have to wait and see.
