ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE: 5 Scenes In The Film It's Hard To Believe Joss Whedon DIDN'T Shoot

ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE: 5 Scenes In The Film It's Hard To Believe Joss Whedon DIDN'T Shoot

Joss Whedon reshot Justice League in 2017, but there are some terrible moments in the Snyder Cut that it's damn near impossible to believe were originally shot by Zack Snyder and not his replacement!

Zack Snyder's Justice League was a major improvement over Joss Whedon's 2017 cut, but not everything about the filmmaker's original vision worked. 

We're not talking about those not so great moments here, though; instead, this piece focuses on the scenes that, over a month later, we still can't believe weren't shot by Whedon. Why? Well, because they're cheesy, a little out of place, or simply don't feel like something Snyder would have wanted to film. 

It's possible these moments were a result of very early studio interference (we know Snyder was prevented from having Bruce Wayne embark on a romantic relationship with Lois Lane), but they all felt more Whedon than Snyder! 

Once you're done reading this feature, make sure to go and take a look at the 10 worst scenes The Avengers director added or changed in Justice League
 

5. Bruce...Bought The Farm?

This scene works well enough, but the sort of dumb humor that encompasses this scene feels 100% Whedon.

So, in the wake of her son's death, Martha Kent lost the farm, right? Well, Bruce never bothered to step in and help her in the wake of Superman's death (weird when he bonded with the Man of Steel over her name and saved Martha's life in Batman v Superman), and instead waited until Clark was resurrected. 

It's pretty illogical, as is Bruce's decision to buy the bank rather than, you know, the farm. Not a lot of thought was put into this, and it's a scene that boiled down to a pretty dumb gag.

That feels 100% Whedon, hence why we're shocked it was a scene Snyder shot. 
 

4. "That's Rude"

It seems Snyder took note of the scenes fans didn't like and quietly removed them from his cut of Justice League. Whedon was blamed for that goofy line about Aquaman talking to fish, but it was Snyder who shot it (it's easy to forget that it in the first trailer for the film that was released during Comic-Con). 

Jim Gordon actually has a smaller role in the Snyder Cut, but the second of the two scenes he is in isn't great. 

Just like in 2017, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg all somehow mysteriously vanish after meeting with the Commissioner...because the Dark Knight told them to before he got there?

He didn't tell the Fastest Man Alive because "LOL, Barry is fast, but not fast enough to disappear with the rest of them!" It's a stupid moment, but one we have to blame Snyder for.
 

3. Upskirt Wonder Woman Shot

There are a lot of gratuitous shots of Wonder Woman in Joss Whedon's Justice League, including one we know Gal Gadot refused to film (when the Flash lands face first on her chest). 

However, we are surprised that one of the most talked-about moments is something Snyder can be credited with. Yes, this infamous upskirt shot of Diana Prince is present in the Snyder Cut, and a scene we now know the filmmaker was responsible for long before Whedon boarded the project.

Look, there's nothing too revealing or controversial here, but...well, that's one way to shoot Wonder Woman! 

We'd have placed money on Whedon adding this scene to a sequence that, overall, was vastly better in the Snyder Cut, but it thankfully doesn't overshadow the badassery that follows. 
 

2. The Hot Dogs

Novq132443

Whedon has a pretty weird sense of humor, and while it worked more often than not in the MCU, it proved to be a bad fit for Justice League

With that in mind, it's a legit shocker that the director can't be blamed for the sheer level of stupidy that ensues when Barry Allen interviews for a job to be a dog walker. The slow-motion might be 100% Zack, but the weird hot dog stuff feels like something Joss might have added in an effort to add some levity to this dramatic rescue sequence. 

Nope. 

We don't know if this was all studio mandated, but the whole hot dog thing is really daft and not exactly a quality moment in Snyder's cut of the DC Comics film. 
 

1. "Kal-El, No!"

Novq13244333

Recently, reports of what happened on the set of Justice League in 2017 surfaced and we learned that Whedon clashed with Gal Gadot on a number of occasions. 

He locked Gadot's stuntwoman in her dressing room, and threatened to make her look bad in the film. That surely explains the goofy line delivery of "Kal-El, no!" right? Wrong. This was all Whedon and all Gadot back when they were shooting the film the first time around. 

It's a cringe-worthy moment in this otherwise badass fight scene, and one we've been trying to wrap our heads around for the past four years or so. Something clearly didn't work this day on set, and there's sadly no blaming Whedon for what went wrong with this moment.

Zack? You should have left this one on the cutting room floor.
