Fans have been raining praises on Zack Synder’s Justice League ever since its release and now Synder says his full vision was not brought to light as the studio wouldn’t let him. One of those visions includes Wayne T. Carr as Green Lantern in his cut.
The iconic director says he even went as far as shooting a scene with Carr as Green Lantern in his driveway but later had to replace his Green Lantern cameo was replaced by an appearance from Martian Manhunter at the end of the film.
“I said, ‘Look, there’s a chance that this doesn’t make it in the movie,” Snyder said. “I’m not 100% sure he thought it was real, legit. We had made him a CG suit and because it was COVID and we couldn’t really do a real suit… The mandate was to make it look as physical as possible.”
“We shot a version of this scene with Green Lantern, but the studio really fought me and said, ‘We really don’t want you to do Green Lantern,’” Snyder said. “So I made a deal with them, and they let me do this [instead].”
The initial movie cost $300 Million. HBO MAX Spent an additional $70 Million to remake the movie as the first was an epic flop.
