Filmmaker Zack Snyder, alongside a slew of other guests, is confirmed to attend the upcoming fan-organized Justice League conference this July.
Zack Snyder will attend the upcoming fan-organized Justice League convention next month. The filmmaker finally gets the chance to finish his original vision for the 2017 Warner Bros. and DC Films ensemble movie after he had to step away from it in the middle of production due to a personal tragedy. This led to director Joss Whedon taking over extensive reshoots and post-production resulting in a significantly different theatrical cut from what Snyder had planned.
Not long after Justice League hit theaters, fans immediately knew that it wasn’t Snyder’s intended story. Whedon’s reshoots reportedly had 80 script pages – which is a lot – resulting in only 10% of Snyder’s work making into the big screen. Hence, the Release the Snyder Cut movement was born demanding Warner Bros. to roll out the original filmmaker’s work complete with Junkie XL’s (the original composer before Danny Elfman stepped in) intended musical score. After more than two years of relentless campaigning, supporters of the petition are finally getting what they want with Snyder’s Justice League is coming via HBO Max some time next year.
As everyone waits for the release of Snyder’s Justice League, some fans are keeping themselves busy by organizing their own convention called Justice Con. The virtual event is set to take place from July 25-26, with guest appearances from Darkseid actor, Ray Porter and storyboard artist Jay Oliva. Snyder is also confirmed to attend the said gathering, which is exciting a lot of his supporters. Watch the announcement video below shared by YouTube channel The Nerd Queens:
Snyder has always thanked fans for their dedication to the Release the Snyder Cut movement and admits that without them, the chance to actually finish his version of the movie wouldn’t have been given to him. Aside from keeping the conversation going with regard to their cause, Release the Snyder Cut movement members have also raised money for charity, particularly suicide prevention which is close to Snyder’s heart. For his part, the director continued to interact with his fans on social media, generally staying engaged via releasing pieces of concept art and other details from his Justice League. Snyder taking the time to attend this fan-organized event is a great way for him to express his gratitude toward those who have continued to support him throughout this whole debacle.
Aside from checking in on the attendees, this will be Snyder’s first public appearance after it’s announced that his Justice League is releasing via HBO Max. A lot of the specifics regarding the project are still unclear, specifically what format it will be in. Reports say that it can either be a 4-hour movie or a TV mini-series, with the filmmaker personally pitching the project with episodes and cliffhangers. Perhaps, Snyder can shed a light on this, as well as tease the public regarding what to expect from his upcoming project. Other than that, it would also be great for him to tell how his conversations with Warner Bros. and HBO Max went down – something that a lot of people would love to know more about.
