A New “Making The Snyder Cut” Video Reveals How This Epic Came to Be

By now you’ve seen Zack Snyder’s Justice League—if not, you’re going to want to step away from this Mother Box (JL joke!). If you did take in the Snyder Cut, you’re probably still parsing all the implications the film raised for the DCEU, and all the new stuff Snyder included in the film. The Anti-Life equation! The Martian Manhunter! Steppenwolf’s fealty, and fear, of Darkseid! And of course, that Joker cameo. Also, the fact that Snyder’s wacky aspect ratio turned out to be, at least for this viewer, pretty intriguing and not distracting at all!

The four-hour epic, which premiered on March 19 on HBO Max, was the culmination of one of the wildest creation stories in modern moviemaking. Snyder’s vision for the film turned out to be, just as he promised, wholly different from the theatrical cut of the film, released in 2017 and shepherded by director Joss Whedon after Snyder had to leave the production due to the death of his daughter, Autumn. Now, HBO Max has released a new 6-minute video that goes behind-the-scenes of Snyder’s return to his passion project.

Snyder, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller, Gal Gadot, and Jason Momoa talk about their deep dives into their characters, and re-teaming for the long-awaited Snyder Cut. The film’s release on HBO Max is the happy ending that Snyder himself probably doubted would ever come. Now that it has, we’re wondering if a Justice League 2 might actually come about, and what Snyder’s future within the DCEU is.

Those questions will be answered at a later date. For now, check out the new video here:
