Zack Snyder’s Son Calls Out Warner Bros. For Meddling With Justice League


Zack Snyder’s son, Jett Elin, has some pointed words for Warner Bros. following his viewing of Justice LeagueAs fans will know, his father had to pull out of completing the project after a family tragedy, leaving Joss Whedon to helm the extensive reshoots and provide the final cut. The result has split the fandom, and Jett is one of those who, while he enjoyed the film, would have liked to have seen less “meddling” with his dad’s vision.

Here’s what he said on Vero:

“On a more serious note I did enjoy the movie, although it is clearly not what it could have been due to the meddling of Warner Brothers and the forced comedy. The run time was my biggest gripe with the movie, with events that should take a long time over in a flash; $ but still definitely a fun movie to watch, and would recommend it.”

As point out, the content of the post isn’t even the most interesting part, as Jett’s review has been liked on the site by his father Zack Snyder – understandable – and also exec producer Wesley Coller and set photographer Clay Enos. It’s clear then that some key figures behind the scenes disagree with the changes made to Justice League by WB brass.

Snyder himself has yet to make a public statement about the final cut of the pic, but there’s a very good reason for that – he hasn’t even seen the movie. While speaking with a fan on social media, the director revealed how little he’s had to do with the film since he passed the baton over to Whedon for the reshoots and hinted at much regret that he didn’t get to complete his work on the project.

“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, BvS.”

Right now, a petition calling for the studio to release a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League has amassed an impressive 100,000 signatures. If WB takes notice of this outcry, then it’s possible that we could still get an extended edition released on DVD/Blu-ray at some point. We already know that one such cut exists, so all we need to do now is hope that the studio listens to the fans and gives them what they want.
