Warner Bros. Justice League film has been through quite the roller coaster. It had a lot of pressure from Warner Bros. to be successful. That way they could compete with the highly successful Marvel Studios’ MCU franchise. But we know that it has had a lot of hurdles including a change in director and a lot of meddling from executives. When it finally came out we were greeted to a horrifying CGI Henry Cavil, that set the tone to the rest of the film.
When the original director Zack Snyder was forced to step down due to personal issues, Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the film. But he did a lot more than just finish Snyder’s film, he completely changed it. When it was finally released it was a disappointment. To the point where for years a “release the Snyder Cut” demanded that Warner Bros. released Justice League the way that Snyder has envisioned it.

Well in the strange year that has been 2020, their wish has come true. A few months ago it was announced that Snyder’s Cut of Justice League would be released on HBO Max. Next month we will finally get to see our first teaser trailer for it during DC Fandome. But this past weekend at the same time as [email protected], The Nerd Queens hosted Justice Con. This was a weekend event bringing fans, cast, and crew together to celebrate Justice League. Also, raise some money for some charitable organizations.
One of the questions that have been often brought up is how much of what Whedon shot would be included in the film. During one of the virtual panels, we got a clear answer to that question. Via The Hollywood Reporter, we learned that Snyder has never even seen the Whedon version of the film. Also that his film would contain nothing shot by Whedon. Saying that, “I would set the movie on fire, I’d destroy it before I used a single frame that I did not photograph.”
I am already excited about the Snyder Cut as it includes Darkseid and a different version Steppenwolf. Now knowing that a lot of what I didn’t like of Justice League is going to be removed, it is going to make the experience that much better.
