Zack Snyder Says His 'Justice League' Cut Includes Over 2.5 Hours of New Footage

Zack Snyder has some exciting news.

The director revealed that his highly anticipated mini-series cut of 2017′s Justice League coming to HBO Max in 2021 is going to be very big – more than 2 hours of previously unreleased footage.

“I am looking at the actual visual effects shots because the cut is locked, so I’m just looking at these shots everyday as they come in. It’s really exciting and I’m excited for you guys to see the giant amount of movie that you have coming your way…it is probably a solid 2 and 1/2 hours of unseen footage in this movie. I would imagine, something like that. So yeah, that’s gonna be fun for everyone to experience this for the first time,” he confirmed on Vero.

He also provided an update about Ezra Miller‘s the Flash character, saying he won’t be able to just move people around while in hyper speed.

“I know a lot of people love that aspect of it; I just don’t…I think it goes against physics. You [can] say they’re protected by the Speed Force, but that’s open to interpretation. I feel like if you grab someone at the speed he’s moving at, you could literally tear their arm out of its socket. He’s moving so fast, it would literally peel the flesh off of somebody’s body, so he’s gotta be super careful with humans inside of the Speed Force,” he went on to say.

This character is also getting a bigger role in the cut.

“Not shooting anything additional. No. It’s all stuff that has been already done. Obviously I don’t know how things are going to evolve and change and adapt depending on now a different length of movie and whatever may happen in post-production.

Zack Snyder Speaks Out About Joss Whedon Taking Over 'Justice League' & Revealed Joss Wasn't His Choice

Zack Snyder is opening up about how Joss Whedon was brought in by Warner Bros. Pictures to take over the director’s chair for Justice League.

At the time, the 54-year-old director had bowed out of the film because of a personal family tragedy. The film, as stated by many fans, wasn’t the same movie they were looking forward to after Joss took over.

During JusticeCon over the weekend, Zack revealed that Joss wasn’t his own pick to take over the movie either.

Instead, that decision was made by a committee, he shared via ScreenRant.

During the same panel, Zack also said that he would never use any of Joss‘ frames from the finished movie.

Instead, he says, he would “destroy the movie.”

“I would set it on fire before I use a single frame that I did not photograph. That is a f***ing hard fact…I would literally blow that f***ing thing up,” he added.

Recently, Joss has been under fire for his behavior on the set of the film, and Kevin Smith even shared a story about Joss slamming Zack‘s vision for the movie.
