The new version of Justice League, dubbed by fans as The Snyder Cut, carries a very lengthy four-hour runtime. Director Zack Snyder himself has now explained why he wanted to make the movie so very long and why it wasn’t split into four parts as he originally talked about.
Speaking to Deadline, he said telling the stories of six main characters, and making sure they are “fully realized,” required a super-sized runtime.
“I mean, literally, I think it has a lot to do with what the ask is. The ask is to unite these characters characters or six characters into a team. If you want them all to be fully realized, you’re asking for a lot of movie, and it just, it wasn’t my intention to create a four-hour movie,” he said.
