Why the Justice League Snyder Cut Isn’t Widescreen


When the latest trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League (a.k.a. The Snyder Cut) was released, one thing some fans might not have been prepared for was how square it was… like, literally. Indeed, this entire cut of Justice League will be presented in that way. So why exactly is the Justice League Snyder Cut going full frame? And what has Snyder himself said about the move? We dig into it all here!

Sources have confirmed to IGN that Zack Snyder’s four-hour reassembling of Justice League is using the boxy 1.33:1 ratio. So the question is why? Well, the director’s love for the format stemmed from the IMAX scenes he shot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which were rendered in full frame, in the 1.43:1 aspect ratio. Ever since that movie, Snyder’s been enamored with the square composition and the idea of using it for future projects.
