Zack Snyder’s latest comment makes us wonder just how different HIS Justice League really was! UPDATED

May 29th, 2018 by Marc Comments

While there’s no doubt last year’s Justice League movie was, at best, a mess, we’re still holding out hope that the full Snyder Cut of the movie will eventually see light of day.

We’ve followed the whole development of the movie fairly closely, most recently with it focusing on the director’s cut all the fans are hoping to eventual see (here) but now just to fuel the ‘how different can it be?’ debate, Snyder himself has confirmed via Vero (below) that a large part of the movie was added in without his knowledge.

When asked about the Russian Family subplot of the movies, Snyder replied ‘What Russian family?’.


Fans – or anyone who watched the movie – will know that the Parademons working with Steppenwolf have a Russina family held hostage thoughout the movie, with the Justice League eventually rescuing them and a load of other who we didn’t even know existed prior to the end. It takes up a big chunk of the movie and surely means that the original cut of the movie was very, very different?

Zack Snyder has revealed yet another detail from his unreleased version of Justice League. Snyder’s cut didn’t have any subplot about a Russian family living in what would become the scene of Justice League’s final battle.

It has long been suspected the family were an addition of second director Joss Whedon and it looks like we know it is now.

Oh, before we forget, #ReleaseTheSnyderCut!.


You may also recall some time ago that it was rumoured that Barry Allen’s Flash costume in the movie was to be replaced by the end of  Justice League by a new suit build by Bruce Wayne’s Waynetech… and guess what? True story:

However, it was agreed that this idea would be scrapped so that The Flash movie director would have free reign on creating a new Flash costume for THAT movie.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
