Many Zack Snyder Cut VFX Shots Are Complete
The visual effects crew who worked on the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League confirm that while several shots have finished visual effects, some are incomplete.
Justice League VFX supervisors John Desjardin and Bryan Hirota were asked for a comment in reply to what Jason Momoa recently said about the unreleased Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. Jason Momoa noted that many VFX scenes were completed, yet it was still implied that chunks of the film weren’t finished. John Desjardin explained that both things were true: there were finished scenes that didn’t make it into the theatrical release, and several scenes that were incomplete to various degrees.
Check out what he had to say below:
Many VFX shots are complete, some percentage were various stages of completion, from early postvis to almost done (but not quite).

Fellow Justice League VFX supervisor Bryan Hirota also chipped in, explaining that this assessment is accurate:

Warner Bros. seems to have absolutely no interest in revisiting Justice League or the Zack Snyder cut of the film after the movie lost millions of dollars for the studio, instead resting on the modest success of Shazam! and the boffo success of Aquaman and Joker. The film would still cost millions to finish, and since Justice League has already been out for a while, there’s a limited amount of space to get a return on investing more in a Zack Snyder Cut. Zack Snyder has also moved on from Warner Bros., instead opting to direct non-franchise movies like Army of the Dead for Netflix, although he has supported fan support for the Zack Snyder Cut.
Here’s the official synopsis for Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD.
