Justice League is a film that’s gone through a troubled production. In addition to the rumored reshoots that have supposedly resulted in the film essentially getting made and remade during principal photography, it seemed to face endless meddling from Warner Bros. (who threw down a mandate that the film shouldn’t be longer than two hours). What’s more, earlier this year, Snyder had to step away after his daughter committed suicide.
Taking his place was none other than Avengers director Joss Whedon, who helped realize the rest of his vision. Throughout the past several months, one point that’s been driven home again and again by Snyder, the studio, and the actors, is that the vision did not change, even though the directors did. Justice League has opened, Snyder may not have seen the film yet.
One Vero user revealed her personal conversations with Snyder on the social media platform, and on it, he revealed that he hadn’t seen the film, saying:
“I will be honest, I have not seen the film since I stepped away. You know I love these characters. I wish only I could only finish it for you and the others who love MOS [and] BvS.”
Now, we can’t say for sure if that was him. It’s always possible for someone to have faked the exchange. However, even assuming it is true, it’s impossible to assign a reason to his not seeing the film. Could it be because he doesn’t want to see all the changes made? Maybe. It can also be because he’s busy, or that working on it reminds him too much of memories he’d like to forget.
Regardless, it is a bit of a shame that this film will forever be marked with a big asterisk.
