Shortly after Justice League released, a petition was created by fans to ask Warner Bros. to release a Zack Snyder director’s cut, and now it seems as if the movie’s cinematographer Fabian Wagner has joined the call. Wagner is famous for his work on Game of Thrones and has been a huge fan of Zack Snyder’s cuts for earlier films such as Watchmen, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Wagner appreciated Snyder and his story-telling ability.
“This one was even shorter than I expected,” Wagner shared. “So there are scenes that aren’t in there. I really hope we get to see a director’s cut, which will give us everything that we shot that didn’t make it in. What I love about his [Snyder’s] director’s cuts is they are long, but he takes his time to tell the story. I’ve never watched any of his directors cut and thought ‘This is long.’ Whether they are three hours long, or three hours and ten minutes, they always seemed to go quick.”
Wagner didn’t participate in Joss Whedon’s reshoots due to scheduling issues, but, he was glad that second unit photographer Jean-Philippe Gossart stepped in to cover his absence. “He and I had been talking about what we’ve been doing, and he knew some of the style we’ve been going for. It was great to have someone I know and who knew the film beforehand and could come in and give it continuity,” Wagner explained.
Wagner had a great time working on Justice League, and he would be keen to get another opportunity to work on future DCEU films. “I really loved the characters,” he said. “And I loved the tone of it.”
It is reported that Joss Whedon reshot almost 15-20% of the movie.
