Zack Snyder is Not Getting Paid to Fix Justice League for HBO Max

We're all pretty happy about the Snyder Cut of Justice League coming to HBO Max next year, with Zack Snyder getting enough money to fix the film and make it his own. The director made it clear that his movie will be nothing like the garbage Joss Whedon was forced to make (though it's also hard to feel for When given recent accusations), which is what everyone wants. What's really interesting is the fact that he will be working on this movie for free.

Despite being given $30 million to fix the movie, it looks like none of that will be given to Snyder for his own personal gain. On Saturday's Justice-Con (via ComicBookMovie), Snyder told fans during a Q and A that he would do this work for his movie free and is, in fact, working on this film for zero dimes. Say what you will about the guy's work but he sure is passionate about his projects.

Seeing Snyder get the chance to fix his version of Justice League is nice after some passionate, sometimes toxic, support from his fans. This has made directors wonder if they can get their own "last-name cuts" of movies that were butchered by studios, particularly David Ayer and his original vision for Suicide Squad.

Admittedly, there are still some of us who are worried about the final product's quality since Zack Snyder hasn't always made the best movies. Sure, people like 300 and Watchmen are underrated as hell but Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice were technically "Snyder Cuts," so think of that what you will. Then again, they were all better than Whedon's Justice League.

Zack Snyder's Snyder Cut of Justice League will be coming to HBO Max sometime next year.
