In the days following the release of Justice League, a fan-made petition was created for Warner Bros. to release a Zack Snyder director’s cut, and it sounds like the film’s cinematographer Fabian Wagner is on board. Wagner, known mainly for his cinematography work on Game of Thrones, has been a big fan of Zack Snyder’s director’s cuts for his previous films, Watchmen and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Wagner praised Snyder and his ability to tell a story.
“This one was even shorter than I expected,” Wagner shared. “So there are scenes that aren’t in there. I really hope we get to see a director’s cut, which will give us everything that we shot that didn’t make it in. What I love about his [Snyder’s] director’s cuts is they are long, but he takes his time to tell the story. I’ve never watched any of his directors cut and thought ‘This is long.’ Whether they are three hours long, or three hours and ten minutes, they always seemed to go quick.”
Wagner wasn’t able to take part in Joss Whedon’s reshoots due to scheduling conflicts. However, he was pleased that second unit photographer Jean-Philippe Gossart was able to step in in his stead. “He and I had been talking about what we’ve been doing, and he knew some of the style we’ve been going for. It was great to have someone I know and who knew the film beforehand and could come in and give it continuity,” Wagner explained.
Wagner had a blast working on Justice League and would welcome the opportunity to work on another film in the DC Extended Universe. “I really loved the characters,” he said. “And I loved the tone of it.”
Joss Whedon’s cut of the movie reportedly reshot 15-20% of the film.
In theaters now, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
