Everything you wanted to know and why Zack Snyder left Justice League In 2017. Read on…
CelebnMovies247.com reports that the DC Extended Universe screwed up big time when the studio fired Zack Snyder from completing Justice League.
Now, 4 years later and on the cusp of the “Snyder Cut” of Justice League heading to HBO Max, Zack is finally explaining why he left the film in the first place.
So why did Zach leave the production of the blockbuster movie?
The reason that Zack Snyder gave for leaving Justice League had to do with a tragedy in the Snyder family. Zack’s daughter Autumn died by suicide, and the director felt like he had to walk away from the production to be at home with his family.
No one could ever fault him for that decision.
During an exclusive interview with Zack Snyder for the Release the Snyder Cut book that took place in June 2020.
Snyder was asked if there was ever a scenario where the studio offered to delay the original film’s November 17, 2017 release date, giving Snyder proper time to grieve with his family but also having the ability to return to post-production and finish his work.
Snyder dug deeper into the real reason why he left Justice League in 2017, clarifying:
I just was kind of done with it. I was in this place of [knowing] my family needs me more than this bullshit, and I just need to honor them and do the best I can to heal that world. I had no energy to fight [the studio], and fight for [the movie]. Literally, zero energy for that. I really think that’s the main thing. I think there’s a different world where I stayed and kind of tried. And I’m sure I could have . . . because every movie is a fight, right? I was used to that. But I just did not have the [energy]. There was no fight in me. I had been beaten by what was going on in my life and I just didn’t want to, I didn’t care to . . . that was kind of where I was.
Before Departing Justice League Admitted:
Zack Snyder admits that he was fighting with the studio, and was fighting over his version of Justice League when Autumn died. And that for a moment, Snyder envisioned a world where he DID continue to fight because as he says, these creative arguments between executives and storytellers happen on every film. But the incessant fights over Justice League, and likely over Snyder’s total vision for the DCEU, had totally drained Snyder of his ability to keep scrapping. He said he had “zero energy” for it.
