“I always saw it as an indictment of, in some ways, popular culture. I think at the time I was criticized for it being the opposite, like some sort of sexist like, rant, but it was fun to make and I still love it to this day. That was the first time where I really faced like a true radical restructuring of the film for it to be more commercial and there’s a director’s cut of that movie that has yet to be released. I’ll say that out loud.”
…Heh. In his position, I would, too. Say that aloud, I mean. Say what you like about the Snyder Cut*, but it demonstrated that a remarkable amount of pressure can theoretically brought to bear on a movie studio. Oh, maybe it was just a fluke. And maybe it wasn’t. So, roll those bones again. After all, what’s the downside for Zack, here? Worst-case scenario, they just say no.
*Like “When’s the DVD for it coming out?”
