Journalists at The Hollywood Reporter note that the directorial version of the superhero blockbuster can be released in a four-hour format. Also from the tape can make a mini-series, dividing it into six episodes.
The director reassembles the team to complete the post-production of the footage. It is also possible that the actors will return and record new cues for the picture.
According to sources, Warner Bros. allocated from 20 to 30 million dollars to complete the project – the data vary.
During the production of Justice League, Zack Snyder was forced to step back from work in connection with the tragedy in the family. Therefore, the film was completed by Joss Whedon, whose vision was significantly different from the original idea.
Kinokomiks raised 658 million dollars worldwide, which is a good result. But along with this, he was criticized both by journalists and ordinary viewers. And soon, fans began to demand the release of a directorial version of the film. As it turned out, it was not in vain.
