Zack Snyder has revealed that he left Justice League back in 2017 because he, as he put it, “had no energy to fight Warner Bros. Pictures” over the movie. This was revealed via a book from CinemaBlend’s Sean O’Connell called Release the Snyder Cut.

Back in 2017, it was revealed that Zack Snyder had left the Justice League movie and had been replaced by Joss Whedon. The film then came out and it was a total mess of a movie, which was a shame.

It felt like a movie that was directed by two people, which it was, and many fans of the DC Comics films just wanted to see what Snyder’s initial vision for the movie would have been. This is why we’re all so excited to see Zack Snyder’s Justice League which is coming to HBO Max pretty soon.

Here’s what Snyder had to say about why he opted to leave Justice League back in 2017:

I just was kind of done with it. I was in this place of [knowing] my family needs me more than this bullshit, and I just need to honor them and do the best I can to heal that 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 thing. I think there’s a different world where I stayed and kind of tried. And I’m sure I could have . . . because every movie is a fight, right? I was used to that. But I just did not have the [energy]. There was no fight in me. I had been beaten by what was going on in my life and I just didn’t want to, I didn’t care to . . . that was kind of where I was.
