Before it aired, there were apparently a lot of interesting facts related to this movie. And here, Okezone tries to sum it up in 4 cool facts from Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
- It was released in 2017
Justice League is known to have been released in 2017 under the direction of Joss Whedon. At that point, Zack Snyder decided to leave this movie in the middle of his work.
This suddenly caused the Justice League of 2017 to receive negative reviews and ratings from the public. In fact, not a few film critics say that Justice League is a failed movie.
This failure caused Snyder to return to work on Justice League, which will air this afternoon on HBO Max. In fact, he dedicated this film to his late son, Autumn Snyder, who committed suicide while Snyder was working on Justice League.
- The director is not paid
Zack Snyder, as a director, reportedly did not want to be paid to produce the Justice League movie. However, he will continue to receive royalties for working on this film.
Regarding his decision not to get paid, Snyder said he didn’t want to lose his creativity after receiving a salary for working on this movie.
“I don’t get paid. I don’t want to be tied down with anyone, and that can keep my bargaining power high with these people (Warner Bros),” Zack Snyder said.
- Posted due to the insistence of fans
Bad reviews related to Justice League 2017 prompted fans to petition via the hashtag #ReleaseTheSynderCut. In this campaign, fans seemed to attack Warner Bros as the production house.
Until early 2020, Warner Bros. finally decided to replay Justice League, with Zack Snyder sitting in the director’s chair. In fact, it takes around $ 70 million or a trillion rupees for this movie.
- Snyder’s last DC movie
Snyder admitted that he wanted to take a break from the superhero genre after working on various films such as Watchmen, Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman, even Army of the Dead. He even said that he had no plans to go back to working on superhero-themed movies after Justice League.
“But will I continue? I don’t even have a plan for that. But like I said, I don’t think I’m here, so who knows?” He explained quoted by Collider.***
