Zack Snyder who is working on his cut of Justice League in quarantine has said that he hasn’t seen the theatrical version of his film. He has also said that he is very excited for Robert Pattinson and director Matt Reeves taking over Batman.
In a recent interview, Snyder said, “You look at what Matt’s doing with Batman. And by the way I’m super excited about that; I think he’s an amazing filmmaker and I think it’s going to be great. And Robert’s cool, I just think it’s great. I’m a fan, so I’m excited.” Snyder was forced to exit Justice League due to a family tragedy and was replaced by Joss Whedon. However, HBO Max gave Snyder a shot at finishing his cut of the film after a big hue-and-cry from the fans who demanded his return.

During the interview, he further said, “I think really the big pressure on me is just for it (Justice League) to be exactly true to itself. And I know that sounds obvious but we as storytellers and as filmmakers a lot of times there’s a lot of different powers that push and move and change what you’re doing as you’re doing it. But I think with this process and this project, it really is an amazing opportunity just to, and what I think the fans want, is just a very pure and exact version of the movie.”
He also continued and said that his three films in the DC Extended Universe exist in a vacuum. He said, “Frankly, the DC cinematic universe has branched like a tree and blossomed and grown in amazing and great ways. But for me, where (Justice League) falls, I believe that it really sort of represents its own path. It’s kind of separate now from the DC cinematic universe continuity. And I think that’s a good thing.”
Batman and Justice League are slated for a 2021 release.
