‘Logan’ Director Clarifies Comments About ‘Justice League’ Zack Snyder Cut Movement

Logan director James Mangold has clarified his comments regarding the Justice League Zack Snyder Cut movement.

Late Friday night, Logan director James Mangold took to Twitter to share a scene from the film Norma Rae. In the tweet, the Logan director suggested that fans should “take ten minutes off from your picketing for the Snyder Cut and watch something where the wardrobe isn’t fiberglass or carbon fiber.” The tweet, which called out the well-storied Justice League Zack Snyder Cut movement, didn’t go well with DC fans at all.

In the morning, the Logan director stated that he woke up to an angry storm of tweets from Zack Snyder fans and that he would clarify his jab towards the Justice League movement. In a series of tweets, Mangold discussed how his comments on the Justice League movement were nothing more than a playful joke. The director continued by stating that he doubts Snyder wakes up everyday thinking about his original Justice League cut as some fans would have themselves believe. He ended the thread by discussing how he’s looking forward to whatever Snyder has in store in the future. You can check out James Mangold’s full thread on the Zack Snyder cut below.

It’s pretty clear that James Mangold meant no ill will towards Snyder, especially considering Mangold cited Snyder’s Watchmen as an influence for Logan. While the director does think that the Justice League movement is a bit overblown, he doesn’t think that people shouldn’t be allowed to joke about it. If anything, Mangold was trying to shed more light on cinematic history that doesn’t get as much love by trying to appeal to younger fans by mentioning Justice League.

Here’s the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the film 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.
