Ever since Warner Bros. and DC confirmed that the highly-anticipated Snyder Cut would be hitting HBO Max next year, director Zack Snyder has been on one, as he’s been dropping story revelations and firing shots at Joss Whedon at an extraordinary clip.

Over the weekend, for example, as Zack Snyder was discussing the essentially-mythologized, he dropped this earth-scorching quote about using Joss Whedon’s footage in his film.

“There would be no chance on earth that I would use a shot that was made prior, er, after I left the movie. I’d destroy the movie, I would set it on fire before I would use a single frame that I did not photograph,” Snyder when asked about the possibility during his Justice Con panel. “That is a f—ing hard fact.”

“I literally would blow that f—ing thing up if I thought for a second,” Snyder added. “Anything you see in this movie which reminds you of the other theatrical release, which again famously I have not, I literally have never seen, would be because that was a thing I had done, and he borrowed for whatever that monster [was] that you guys saw in the theater.” [via YouTube

In addition to his spicy comments about Whedon, Snyder —  who dropped a brief, albeit tantalizing clip from the Snyder Cut that featured Henry Cavill’s Superman wearing a black suit — also said that Whedon, who previously directed The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, was not his choice to take over the director’s chair for Justice League.

The Snyder Cut, which is scheduled to hit HBO Max in the first half of 2021, is set to have its first trailer released this weekend, which we’ll definitely be covering so make sure to check back on Saturday or Sunday.
