A hardcore Zack Snyder fan named Fiona shared a private conversation she had with the Justice League director on Vero, where Snyder admitted he hasn’t seen the movie yet and apologized for not being able to finish it.
Fiona sent Snyder a screenshot of a letter she wrote, bashing Justice League’s writer and other director Joss Whedon. Snyder simply replied with: “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 have finished it for you and the others who love MOS [and] BvS”.
It’s been reported that when Snyder turned in his first cut of Justice League to Warner Bros. earlier this year, they weren’t completely satisfied. That’s when Joss Whedon was brought in to write new scenes. When Snyder was no long able to continue after a family tragedy, Whedon took over directing the movie as well.
Fans will probably always wonder how much different Snyder’s original cut was, but unfortunately we’ll probably never know for sure. At best, I think we’ll get some deleted scenes on the Blu-ray, but I would not count on seeing an “Ultimate Edition” or anything like that.
