Zack Snyder revealed the dark side of working with Warner Bros. for Justice League: Snyder Cut.
Zack Snyder outed the details about how he went through worst while filming the Justice League: Snyder Cut.
On March 18, Warner Bros. released the most awaited Justice League by the original director Snyder. The film arrived simultaneously on HBO max and selected theaters worldwide.
With a budget of $70 million, the film immediately reached over half a billion box office sales. It gave justice to the first theatrical cut of Justice League in 2017 by Joss Whedon.
Despite the success, Snyder, reportedly, suffered while working on the flick.
How Warner Bros. reportedly tortured Snyder
Snyder proclaimed that Justice League: Snyder Cut would be his last film with Warner Bros. A few months after the movie arrived, he finally spoke the reason why it was never easy for him to make the cut.
In an interview with Uproxx, the 55-year-old filmmaker said that he did not regret making the film. However, creating it was not an easy journey at all.
“It was cool to do the Snyder Cut of Justice League and that was fun and everything. But Warner Bros. still tortured me the whole time for whatever reason, they can’t help it. I don’t know why I’m such a f*cking pain in their ass because I’m not trying to be, honestly,” he said.
He added that there were people who became aggressive to him although he was not doing anything. Snyder added that these people, who he refused to name, did some “passive-aggressive” almost every day.
The events made him think that what happened with Warner Bros. is not a normal situation at all.
Warner Bros. always contradicted what Snyder wants
What he claimed was not surprising at all, especially since the production company has been inviting criticisms due to Justice League.
For what it’s worth, Warner Bros. insisted on removing Green Lantern John Stewart from the franchise.
Whedon, who overtook Snyder’s position when he left, also faced ordeals due to the alleged abuse scandal on the Justice League set. Ray Fisher first spoke up about it and how Whedon removed Cyborg from The Flash.
Charisma Carpenter supported #IStandWithRayFisher and confirmed that Whedon truly abused his power outside Warner Bros. projects.
“Joss Whedon abused his power on numerous occasions while working together on the sets of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel,” she tweeted. “While he found his misconduct amusing, it only served to intensify my performance anxiety, disempower me, and alienate me from my peers.”
