Snyder will be releasing his four-hour cut of Justice League on HBO Max next month.
The filmmaker was originally on board to direct the superhero film before stepping away over creative differences, with Joss Whedon stepping in to finish and edit.
“I didn’t want to be beholden to anyone, and it allowed me to keep my negotiating powers with these people pretty strong,” he explained in a new interview.
Meanwhile, Dave Bautista, who will be starring in Army of the Dead, recently said he had expressed interest in playing a zombie in The Walking Dead and was told he was “too big”.
“I’m a zombie fan,” Bautista began. “I tried to get on Walking Dead for years, I said I would come and play a zombie for free, but they said, ‘You’re too big!’”
Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead will be released worldwide on Netflix on May 21.
