ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE TRAILERS
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 was hired to write 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 his time of his departure, was shot and edited with significant post-production completed.
WHY IS THE SNYDER CUT GETTING RELEASED?
