Zack Synder not to get paid for ‘Snyder Cut’ of Justice League; says ‘I didn’t want to be beholden to anyone’
Zack Synder is not taking any salary for his upcoming Justice League. The director further revealed he hasn’t seen Joss Whedon’s take on the film.
With only a month left for the much-awaited release of Justice League, Zack Synder’s ‘Synder Cut’ has taken over the internet. Fans have been waiting for director’s version of the action packed movie ever since Joss Whedon’s version drew negative feedback. Synder had to opt out mid film after the unfortunate demise of his 20 year old daughter, who lost her battle by committing suicide. When it was announced Synder would be back to make the film, fans were elated to see the spirit of the director.
In a chat with Vanity Fair, an executive at Warner Bros. revealed how Whedon’s work on the film was ‘stupefying’. Recalling certain scenes in the film, which were particularly unnecessary in his eyes, the executive went on to share how some instances were ‘useless’ and ‘pointless’. Further adding how everyone knew the film was not up to par, but no one wanted to admit it. Meanwhile, Zack revealed he hadn’t even seen the Whedon’s take on the film. Zack also added, “I’m not getting paid. I didn’t want to be beholden to anyone, and it allowed me to keep my negotiating powers with these people pretty strong.”
Set after the events of the iconic movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice where Batman and Wonder Woman form a team of superheroes including Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg as the group tries to protect the world from Steppenwolf. Fans can’t wait to witness Synder’s Cut as the popular film is set to release on March 18, 2021.
