Now that the world can finally compare Zack Snyder’s Justice League to the theatrical version of Justice League Released in 2017, directed by Joss Whedon, it is clear how much of the film’s style and tone has changed due to executive interference between the two parts of the film. Chris Terrio, who wrote the original script for the film while Snyder was still in charge of the project, bluntly told VanityFair that what Warner Bros. did Snyder’s movie with Whedon’s re-shootings was nothing short of vandalism.
“The 2017 theatrical cut was an act of vandalism. Zack may be too big of a gentleman to say that, but I’m not.”

According to Terrio, the changes to the film during his absence were intended as a methodical dismantling of Snyder’s entire vision.
“I only occasionally heard reports about the re-shoot. I didn’t realize how much of the film was going to be changed or destroyed, in my opinion. When I spoke with several actors, it became clear that it was a massive dismantling of the film. what had happened before. I haven’t heard from anyone who said it was a pleasant experience … I’ve never met Joss. I don’t know him. I did contact him at the beginning of the process, through the executives, but I did not hear back, which is not uncommon. “
Which Zack Snyder’s Justice League it came out, Chris Terrio is happy that fans can finally see the film as he always intended to see it. While admitting that the “Snyder Cut” won’t appeal to everyone, Terrio is happy that the “soul” of Justice League is restored.
“When those personal details were removed from the film in the 2017 version, I fell silent because I couldn’t really say anything, but of course it hurt. All that was left was a dinosaur skeleton of what had been a large, unwieldy beast. may have been a big unruly beast, and obviously it’s four hours and the movie is maximalistic and it’s opera and, sure, it’s a little crazy, but I think the movie is crazy in the best way . “
