Zack Snyder's creative issues with Warner Bros. are well-documented and a lot of us have been aware for years that the Justice League director didn't always get his way with things. Now, one would assume that since he asked for full creative control over the Snyder Cut, he would now be able to call all the shots during production but apparently, that still wasn't the case.
Last week, we reported that Snyder himself revealed that Warner Bros. actually turned down his plans of using the John Stewart version of Green Lantern in his cut due to the studio's future plans for the character who is set to get his own HBO Max series along with other members of the Green Lantern Corps. Now, Zack is opening up anew about another scene that almost didn't make it to his version of the film.
In a recent interview with Yahoo!, Snyder claims that WB originally didn't allow him to give Flash his epic and heroic Speed Force scene during the climactic final battle with Steppenwolf where the Scarlet Speedster turned back time. "That was always a bone of contention with the studio: They didn't want him running back through time there," he explains.
Warner Bros.' true motivation behind wanting to have that specific scene removed from the film still remains unclear but thankfully, cooler heads prevailed and Snyder ultimately got what he wanted. And let's be real here, the Snyder Cut pretty much redeemed Ezra Miller's Flash with just one scene alone which is night and day compared to what Joss Whedon came up with and it was very rewarding to see Barry Allen get his own moment.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is now available for streaming on HBO Max.
