Today at Justice Con, Justice League director Zack Snyder stated that he refuses to use even a “single frame” from Joss Whedon’s reshoots of the film for his Snyder Cut – which is headed to HBO Max in 2021.
Snyder emphatically said that he’d “literally blow that f***ing thing up” before using any of Whedon’s footage, stating too that the theatrical version of the film from 2017, which Whedon oversaw the extensive reshoots on, was “separate” from the DCEU timeline. “There would be no chance on Earth that I would use a shot from after I left the movie,” he shared.
“I would destroy the movie, I would set it on fire, before I use a single frame that I did not photograph,” Snyder explained. “That is a f***ing hard fact.”
