A recent post on social media showing Zack Snyder confused about the brunch joke from Justice League reveals that the director never saw the theatrical cut of the movie.
After Snyder left the production of Justice League in order to deal with a personal tragedy, Warner Bros. took the reigns as they added Joss Whedon to the project. The end result was a cluttered movie which, while having enjoyable moments, truly ended up disappointing most fans. While fingers have been pointed in all directions, from Whedon to Warner Bros. to Snyder, Snyder has never truly released a statement about his opinion on the Justice League movie. Recently, he commented on a social media named Vero to reveal that he didn’t understand a jab at the brunch joke in Justice League:
For those unaware, the brunch joke was a running joke about the Flash (Ezra Miller) in Justice League it started with him complaining to Batman (Ben Affleck) about it when first being recruited. However, it came back later in the film during the post-credits scene when Superman (Henry Cavil) said that, if he won, Barry should take everyone to brunch.
The revelation that Snyder himself hasn’t seen the theatrical cut of Justice League is shocking news to many fans. The reason, of course, has not been revealed, so we shouldn’t jump to any conclusions as to his thoughts on the final movie. However, this along with the news that Snyder shot the recently surfaced image of Batman perched on a gargoyle have led to more fans than ever wanting a Snyder Cut of the film.

10 Great Potential Directors For DC’s ‘Green Lantern Corps’
Green Lantern Corps has been on the DC Films slate for quite some time, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything solid about the project. The film’s original release date was slated for 2020 yet no director, casting announcement or any real progress has been made so far. Warner Bros. and DC failed to lay the groundwork for the film by introducing a Green Lantern as a member of the Justice League (except for a small cameo in a flashback). It is safe to assume Warner Bros. wants to have a good amount of time to distance the general audience from the disastrous 2011 Green Lantern film starring Ryan Reynolds. Yet now approaching seven years one has to wonder when this film will get off the ground? The success of Guardians of the Galaxy has proven no concept is too far out there for the general movie going audience and DC could have its own intergalactic saga to compete with Marvel by making this movie.
Warner Bros. and DC even have an interesting hook to separate Green Lantern Corps from not only Guardians of the Galaxy but also every other major superhero film. The DC project is supposedly a “buddy cop film set in space.” Basically Lethal Weapon meets Star Trek. Or even for a more modern reference, The Nice Guys meets Mass Effect. That’s a great pitch for any movie. Green Lantern Corps needs to be a higher priority for the studio than Lobo, Nightwing or that Joker origin movie.
The first step is finding the right director for the project. David S. Goyer, who has written a draft of the script, was rumored to be in talks to helm the project, but Warner Bros. and DC are paving a new path forward so they may want to try getting a better director. Hundreds of directors make interesting films every year and given the recent success of Black Panther, Wonder Woman and Thor: Ragnarok, it’s clear that some of the best choices come from unconventional places.
These are the ten directors that should be on Warner Bros. and DC’s radar to help bring the Green Lantern Corps to the big screen. Click Next to get started!
