SNYDER CUT FAQ

WHAT IS THE SNYDER CUT?

Zack Snyder shot 100% of his Justice League script and assembled a director's cut. He directed post-production until May 2017 when he stepped down following a family tragedy. The studio wanted a lighter tone with more humor, so they took the opportunity to hire Joss Whedon, who wrote 80 new script pages and conduct several months of reshoots.

Snyder's Assembly Cut was 5-hours, which he cut to 3 1/2 hours for his director's cut, but Whedon's final product was only 2-hours long and ultimately only used 30-45 minutes of Snyder's original footage. Composer Junkie XL, completed score was also replaced with a new score by Danny Elfman.

The Snyder Cut is Zack Snyder's original vision for the movie, which, at the time of his departure, was shot and edited with significant post-production completed.

WHY IS THE SNYDER CUT GETTING RELEASED?

After the critical and commercial failure of Joss Whedon's theatrical cut of Justice League, the studio denied the existence of the "Snyder Cut."

Demand for the Snyder Cut persisted for 2 years until the launch of HBO Max finally created a distribution model that could justify the completion of the movie.

Zack Snyder's Justice League received $70 million in additional funding to complete VFX and other post production on a 4-hour version of the movie, along with additional photography to add 4-5 minutes of footage on top of that.

HOW IS THE SNYDER CUT DIFFERENT?

  • A totally new visual aesthetic, including a different aspect ratio, coloring, and contrast.

  • Junkie XL's epic score will return to replace the whimsical Danny Elfman music.

  • Superman will wear his iconic black suit.

  • Steppenwolf is returning to his original appearance.

  • Darkseid plays a significant role.

  • The post-apocalyptic Knightmare from Batman v Superman will return.

  • Jared Leto's Joker will appear along with an expanded part for Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke.

  • Additional villains like DeSaad and Lex Luthor will be present.

  • Cut characters like Elinore Stone, Iris West, Ryan Choi, Martian Manhunter, and more will be restored.

  • Henry Cavill's upper lip will not be CGI.

  • Removal of cheap humor and excessive quippy one-liners in favor of Oscar Winner Chris Terrio's original dialogue.

  • And more! A 4 -hour runtime can hide a lot of secrets.
