Justice League came out back in 2017, but until now, some fans can’t help but demand that WB release Zack Snyder’s original cut from the film. Besides the fans, even people who worked in the film have been talking about Snyder’s original vision, and the latest is cinematographer Fabian Wagner.
Talking to Comic Book Debate, Wagner reveals that he wasn’t brought on for the reshoots because he had become busy working on other projects. He goes on to talk about how much he didn’t like the theatrical cut for the film, and still prefers what he was working on with Snyder. Wagner says:
“It’s really hard to say because I was watching it and I think I was crying all the way through. So it’s hard for me to say exactly how much was changed, but a lot was changed. It looked very different. It’s sad for me because I loved working with Zack; I had the best time of my life. There were many other things on that movie that made it so good apart from the fact that I was working with Zack and the whole gang. I met my wife on that job. There [were] a lot of other things. It was just a great shoot, and so it was a shame to see the film the way it turned out to be.”
The latest news we got of the Snyder cut was that almost everything was done, but fans would need a “couple million dollars” to have that cut of the film completed. We don’t know if WB has been aware of the #ReleasetheSnyderCut movement, but seeing as they’re working on rebuilding the whole DCEU without Snyder, it seems that they would prefer to just put Justice League behind them and look ahead.
For now, DC is working on some experimental films, and we have Todd Phillips’ Joker coming out in October. Our official return to the main DCEU timeline comes with Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) which hits theaters Feb. 7, 2020.
