Zack Snyder had a yr of redemption this yr after the optimistic reception of each Zack Snyder’s Justice League and Army of the Dead. The former was a very long time coming and after its launch on HBO Max, it was met with enthusiastic responses from followers and it was reportedly profitable for the streamer. You would assume some sort of congratulations can be so as from Warner Bros. however Zack Snyder says he has heard nothing from the studio for the reason that movie was launched.
Zack Snyder mentioned the state of affairs throughout a latest interview with Tyrone Magnus on YouTube. The director was requested if he’d heard anything from Warner Bros. concerning the Snyder Cut, particularly any extra alternatives to do extra work for them, and never essentially simply persevering with his DC universe. Here is what Snyder needed to say:
“Well, um…no. I have not heard from them in any respect! After I launched the film, I have not gotten a telephone name. It’s been radio silence. I do not…the one communication was [Warner Bros. CEO] Ann [Sarnoff]’s article after the film was launched, however that wasn’t on to me, that was to the folks. So I do not know. As far as I’m involved, let’s examine what occurs with Discovery, and that is cool. Who is aware of? All I do know is that as of yesterday, Justice League was #1 within the UK once more, so…”
Ann Sarnoff did deal with the release of the Snyder Cut throughout a March 2021 interview. She expressed that the studio was “glad” that that they had HBO Max as a platform to permit Snyder the chance to “full his imaginative and prescient in a four-hour film, which is inconceivable to do in theaters.” Despite saying she was glad that the director may full his imaginative and prescient, she was fast to say there have been no plans for Snyder to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse as a result of the studio needed to give attention to the long run and increasing the DCEU. At the time Sarnoff mentioned “I recognize that they love Zack’s work and we’re very grateful for his many contributions to DC. We’re simply so glad that he may carry his reduce of the Justice League to life as a result of that wasn’t within the plan till a few yr in the past. With that comes the completion of his trilogy. We’re very glad we have carried out this, however we’re very excited concerning the plans we’ve got for all of the multi-dimensional DC characters which are being developed proper now.”
I assume the dearth of communication from Warner Bros. reveals there’s nonetheless some sort of pressure between the studio and Zack Snyder. The director hasn’t been shy about discussing his points with the studio, notably when it got here to Justice League, and it looks as if Warner Bros. simply needed to get the Snyder Cut out to calm down the fan strain and appease Zack Snyder on some stage. After that, it seems their determination is to merely distance themselves from it.
What are YOUR ideas on Warner Bros. not contacting Zack Snyder after the release of the Snyder Cut?
