‘Justice League’ Director Zack Snyder Reveals If He’d Direct ‘Star Wars’

You know the slow-motion lightsaber fights would look cool.

Justice League director Zack Snyder has discussed whether or not he’d be interesting in directing a Star Wars movie.

The entire saga surrounding the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League has pushed the director further into the limelight than ever before. And in a recent interview with The Times, Snyder opened up about the entire ordeal right up until the release of his version of the DC film. He even explained how he thought Warner Bros. might sue him for hyping up Justice League. But he also revealed his stance on diving into other big franchises, using Star Wars as an example.

The Justice League director explained that he prefers to step into a world he created rather than being a “cog in your wheel”. Given his experiences working in the DC Extended Universe, it’s an understandable perspective. Zack Snyder pointed out that he’d love to make a Star Wars movie but he doesn’t think he “would survive that.” Take a look below

“Where it gets difficult is when you take a director with a personal point of view and ask him to participate in a thing that is not asking for that. The journeyman filmmaker? There are a lot of them, and they’re good. I just happen to have a specific point of view. The lesson I’ve learnt is it’s much easier for me, as a filmmaker, to create a world and invite you into it. As opposed to me saying, ‘Let me put my cog in your wheel.’ Like, I would love to make a Star Wars movie, I know a lot about it…but I don’t think I would survive that.”

Here is the official synopsis for the Zack Snyder cut:

“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons and Ciarán Hinds.
