Quentin Tarantino isn’t one to mince words, so hearing some of his comments on industry news is fascinating. When it came to fan demand for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the prolific director believed the fans’ perseverance was “groovy.”
Tarantino recently got down with the hosts of the ReelBlend podcast, where CinemaBlend’s Sean O’Connell brought up Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and while Tarantino hasn’t seen the 4-hour cut yet, he expressed his support for the project:
“I haven’t seen it, because I don’t have HBO Max, but that’s something I would like to see. I never saw the other one. I never saw (Justice League) when it was at the theaters. But I’d be kind of curious to see his four hour, you know, his original vision on that. I actually thought that was really groovy. And I actually thought the fans were really groovy, the fact that they kept persisting on it. Didn’t he do something like that with Watchmen, as well? But this one was like, the fans demanded it. I think that’s really groovy.”
For some reason, I expected Tarantino to react negatively to the fan demand for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but I’m glad to see that he did. I understand that certain fandoms are poisonous, but there’s no denying that the demand for a “true Justice League” sparked a massive movement that allowed the Snyder Cut to emerge.
What are your opinions on Tarantino’s assessment of Snyder’s Justice League cut?
