Not even Zack Snyder can move past his canceled Justice League film! The director revealed a scene in the Rebel Moon sequel that was meant to be used in a DC film.

Despite the critical backlash, fans have been loving Rebel Moon. The franchise is Zack Snyder’s latest project for Netflix, bringing back the cosmic stakes fans have been craving from him since Justice League. However, it seems the tone isn’t the only thing Snyder took from his DC outings.

There’s a scene in the recently released Rebel Moon sequel that shows the heroes sitting down to trade stories about the war. What fans may not have realized is that this scene was a direct nod to his DC trilogy. According to Zack Snyder, the concept for the dinner was one he originally came up with for the second Justice League film.

“There absolutely is a Last Supper in Justice League 2,” Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter. “And the scene had them telling the stories of how they got there, because Justice League 2 was going to open with us now 10 years in the future. And yes, [Rebel Moon — Part Two’s sequence] has a similar sort of structure to the Justice League 2 scene that we have.”

Rebel Moon Is Getting A Snyder Cut

Despite Zack Snyder having carte blanche over at Netflix, the director seems to be taking even more inspiration from his Justice League ventures. Later this year, Snyder plans to release extended director’s cuts of both Rebel Moon films. Yet according to him, they’re closer to alternate universes than anything else.

“The director’s cuts really are the alternate universe version of these movies.” Snyder continued. “They’re what I wrote. They’re much more mythological and much more tonally weird and much more the deconstructivist quality of the sci-fi universe that I intended…I really wanted to make a movie that was much more Heavy Metal magazine than Star Wars, and much more irreverent than reverent.”

“The PG-13 version is much more earnest. It’s weirdly earnest because you don’t have over-the-top sex and violence to set a tone. The [director’s cuts] are both three hours long with tons of scenes that you’ve never seen and just tons of other crazy stuff, as well as a very significant R rating that is not a joke.”

Many fans have come out to critique Zack Snyder’s decision to hold back a director’s cut of Rebel Moon. They claim Justice League was a once-in-a-lifetime circumstance and say he should have just released a single version. Judging by the critical scores of both Netflix films, it may have been for the best to listen to critics for once!
