The result was criticized by critics and underperformed at the box office, and Whedon has since been accused of abusive behavior on the film’s set, most notably by Cyborg actor Ray Fisher.

“It was just … it’s a weird experience,” Snyder said. “I don’t know how many people have that experience. You’ve worked on something for a long time, and then you go away, and then you see what happened. “
Zack Snyder, also interviewed for the article, continues: “They came in and said, ‘You can never see that movie.’
Deborah Snyder then adds, “Because I knew it would break her heart.”
