Though director Zack Snyder has yet to see Justice League himself, his son Jett has and he posted his thoughts on Vero. According to his post, he liked the film, though he had a few gripes with Warner Bros.
“On a more serious note I did enjoy the movie, although it is clearly not what it could have been due to the meddling of Warner Brothers and the forced comedy,” he wrote. Here, Snyder is likely referring to Joss Whedon taking over as director after his father stepped away from the film to due to a family tragedy; among the other reshoots, Whedon punched up the script to add in more comedic moments, which can primarily be seen in the Flash scenes.
“The run time was my biggest gripe with the movie, with events that should take a long time over in a flash;$ [sic] but still definitely a fun movie to watch, and would recommend it,” he added.
The inclusion of Whedon did not go over well for Zack Snyder fans in particular, who have since created a petition demanding WB release Snyder’s cut of the film. Said petition has recently crossed 100,000 signatures, though WB has yet to respond. Reports have surfaced regarding multiple deleted scenes.
Justice League has only been out for a week, but its box office may force Warner Bros. to write the film off as a loss. The film has earned mixed reviews, sitting at 41% on RottenTomatoes at the time of writing.
Now in theaters, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Ciaran Hinds, and Diane Lane.
