There are plenty of talking points in regard to the “Barbie” film that have come up in the cultural conversation surrounding the movie’s impactful release.
One of those was a one-liner – a joke about “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” film recut, or more specifically one made at the expense of the infamous Snyderbros fandom which helped get that recut film made.
In “Barbie,” Alexandra Shipp’s freshly broken out of hypnosis Barbie says: “It’s like I’ve been in a dream where I was really invested in the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League.”
This week, Snyder himself has now finally broken his silence on the matter and shared his take on the gag when asked about it during a recent Men’s Health interview. He says it’s more a joke about the fandom than anything else, and he thought it was a good one:
“I thought [Barbie] was great, and I think the joke is pretty good.
The thing that I said to Debbie [Snyder] is – the thing that you need to take a second and think about is that your name is so seamlessly sewed together with a pop culture phenomenon so big it can exist as a joke in a movie about Barbie.
That’s pretty insane. You just need to step back for a second and go like, ‘Whoa, what did we do? What happened? How is that a thing?’”
The comments come as Snyder is promoting the release of the first of his two-part sci-fi saga “Rebel Moon”. That film hits cinmeas next week ahead of a December 22nd Netflix release.
