Zack Snyder fired back at a critic who shared his thoughts on the trailer for the director’s highly-anticipated Justice League cut.
While many fans and critics are excited to see Zack Snyder’s original version of Justice League, the filmmaker recently shot back at one journalist who heavily criticized the film’s new trailer shortly after it leaked online. The recent DC FanDome panel for the Snyder Cut offered new details about the film, including the specific plan to air it on HBO Max. But while some are excited for the film’s release, others aren’t quite sold on seeing another version of Justice League.
Forbes film critic Scott Mendelson took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on the Justice League trailer, pointing out that some of the footage still looks similar to the theatrical cut. Zack Snyder clearly wasn’t impressed with his opinion, even insulting Mendelson by insinuating he’s a child because Justice League is “made for grownups” and the critic isn’t “in the demographic.” Clearly, Snyder feels a little protective over the new cut. He also pointed out that Mendelson probably shouldn’t have commented on a leaked version of the trailer. Take a look below.
You said you enjoyed the theatrical cut of Justice League like you enjoy your Saturday morning cartoons… Well this is made for grownups, so you’re not in the demographic. Also, cool of you to comment on a leaked teaser. @ScottMendelson https://t.co/Zsu2O2oixb

Here is 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, 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.
