Even as someone who has tracked every step of the Snyder Cut journey, it caught me off guard to hear Zack Snyder admit that he was fighting with the studio, and was fighting over his version of Justice League, when Autumn died. And that for a moment, Snyder envisioned a world where he DID continue to fight, because as he says, these creative arguments between executives and storytellers happen on every film. But the incessant fights over Justice League, and likely over Snyder’s total vision for the DCEU, had totally drained Snyder of his ability to keep scrapping. He said he had “zero energy” for it. They wore him down, and all he could do was walk away.
