Zack Snyder Says WB Tortured Him During ‘Snyder Cut’ Experience

Since the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max, numerous fans have been calling on Warner Bros. to “Restore the SnyderVerse” and allow Snyder to make the sequels he was planning.

However, the studio appears to be moving forward with their less-than-cohesive plans for the DCEU. What is more surprising is that despite all the hard work he put into finishing his four-hour cut of Justice League, Snyder sounds like he’s ready to make a clean break with WB.

Snyder has expressed his frustration with the studio clearly in recent weeks. While talking on Jake’s Takes a few days ago, he claimed that Warner Bros. was “aggressively anti-Snyder.”

Recently in a new interview with Uproxx, he even went so far as to say that WB “tortured” him,

“It was cool to do the Snyder Cut of Justice League and that was fun and everything. But Warner Bros. still tortured me the whole time for whatever reason, they can’t help it. I don’t know why I’m such a f***ing pain in their ass because I’m not trying to be, honestly.”

Snyder’s comments can not be taken lightly, as every single one of his movies since 300 has been distributed by WB. Nevertheless, he doesn’t seem to be worried about burning that bridge.

Upon being asked if he’s worried about other studios denying to work with him for fear of getting on his bad side, he argued that that’s unlikely to happen. To prove this, he cited his more positive experience with Netflix on Army of the Dead.

“Well, I just don’t know who would ever end up on the other end? If you analyze what’s happened with Warner Bros., it’s not a normal situation. It’s a once-in-a-generation bizarro situation! I just had an amazing experience with Netflix and it was awesome and we had a great partnership and an incredibly great experience. So, the only thing I would say is that it’s an unusual situation.”
