No one would have blamed Zack snyder If he had decided to leave the post-production of ‘Justice League’ after the suicide of his daughter Autumn in March 2017, but the truth is that it took a couple of months until the filmmaker decided that he did not give more of himself , being subsequently replaced by Joss Whedon, whose version of the movie was not to the liking of many DC fans
Finally, Snyder will be able to premiere his montage of ‘Justice League’ this 2021 on HBO Max with a 4-hour film, but before seeing it we have discovered what was the real reason that led him to leave the film at the time thanks to an interview featured in the forthcoming book ‘Release the Snyder Cut’:
I was tired. It was clear to me that my family needed me more than all this shit. He needed to honor them and do what he could to heal the world. I had no energy to fight the studio and fight for the movie. Literally zero energy for that. I really think that’s the main reason.
