In an exciting turn of events, Zack Snyder has named his version of the Justice League. The movie, which was expected to be a star of the DCEU, did not quite make it to the hearts of the ardent DC fans. The film was also expected to clash against The Avengers, but thanks to lousy cinematography and even worse CGI, it failed to do so. What was intriguing about the movie was the discussions that started to gain pace after the release of the film. Zack Snyder, the acclaimed filmmaker, was in talks of releasing his version of the Justice League. It took less than a day for #RelaseTheSnyderCut to trend on social media. The audience had given its decision. The new version was to be named as the Snyder Cut. But, reportedly, Zack Snyder has come up with a title of his own, and it has its charm. The Snyder Cut has been renamed as Zack Snyder’s Justice League with Snyder’s name coming at the top of the film’s original title. This comes in light of the fact that the title makes it easier for Warner Bros. to promote the movie.
How did the news go around?
The news hit the internet when Snyder released the official merchandise of his new movie via Ink to the People. The merchandise had the label of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Moreover, along with the six core members of the team, it also featured the symbols of Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter. So, why did Zack Snyder go to such an extent? Was the already trending title Snyder Cut a little problematic? Here are a few reasons why the title change may be beneficial to Snyder:
The title of the movie differentiates the movie from the DCEU. Warner Bros. faced the issue of the DCEU not being able to cooperate with Snyder in fulfilling his vision. Extending this fact was that Snyder wanted an elaborate five-part sequence featuring the heroes of the DC Universe. This simulation would have included the Death of Batman too! But what DCEU currently represents is not a part of the elaborate vision that Snyder presented. So, a thin line had to be drawn.
Snyder’s Justice League will be having specific sequences which were not present in the previous version. These sequences would prove to be the reason why Snyder’s cut is awaited for so long. But, according to Jason Momoa, aka Aquaman, the detailing of the Snyder’s Cut is such that it is a movie in itself. So, Zack Snyder’s Justice League gives the film a sense of superiority.
The original Justice League faced a lot of criticism. This made it tough for the studios to market another version of the same movie. The problem is synonymous with the issues mentioned above. So, renaming the film has his own, is a brilliant move played by Zack Snyder, which would also help Warner Bros. promote the movie.
In conclusion, the renaming of the movie is a wise decision. Zack Snyder’s Justice League swims in a pool of benefits, which includes high revenue and easy advertising. The hype has been there for far too long, and ardent DC fans are now on their toes to watch the version of Snyder! So, it is all up to him. Snyder beholds the power to make or break Justice League’s reputation!
