An exhibit celebrating “Zack’s Snyder’s Justice League,” the highly anticipated directors cut of the 2017 theatrical flop set to be released on HBO Max March 18, was set to open its doors to fans at the AT&T Discovery District in Dallas, Texas early Friday morning.
According to some claims, the exhibition was presumably asked by Warner Bros. to remain closed due to supposed leaks. Later clarification suggests Warner simply wasn’t ready to open the display yet. Much of this was centered around storyboards drafted in 2015 for a Justice League franchise.
“When [the story boards were] written, there’s dates all over it, and I think the important thing is it was constantly evolving,” Snyder said during a live stream with Film Junkee yesterday. “That was a ‘snapshot’ of where the story was. In the broad streaks that was a very good idea of what I had planned. What it actually evolved into was very different. It’s not really up to date with what ‘Justice League’ became.”
According to Snyder, the actual storyboards were lettered by Geoff Johns, the then Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics. They were put together by Zack Snyder, Chris Terrio and featured art by Jim Lee.
The aforementioned storyboards laid out a complex plan for the League that compares to the “Lord of The Rings” franchise. It depicted what would happen if the team lost against the villainous god being Darkseid and sparked controversy due to a romantic triangle between Lois Lane, Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent. The concept was later scrapped soon after 2016’s “Batman vs Superman” and a new script was composed for what is now known as “Zack Snyder’s Justice League.”
Officials have stated that photographs are strictly prohibited in the exhibit but this ordinance is subject to change. This exhibit will include special memorabilia from the Snyder Cut and will allow fans the chance to dive deeper into the mind of Director Zack Snyder. The showcase will be open daily from 12-8pm CST.
Because of the pandemic, capacity is limited to 20 persons during operating hours. The exhibit is set to be open for the next few months. The Daily Planet speculates that pictures will be allowed after “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” premieres in March.
