Christopher Nolan thought Justice League was so bad that he warned Zack Snyder to never watch it.

Snyder was originally set to direct the DC superhero movie before dropping out to deal with a family tragedy.

Buffy creator Joss Whedon, who directed the first two Avengers films for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, replaced him, but the result is considered a mess.

Ahead of Snyder’s new four-hour recut version, the director revealed he never watched Whedon’s film after being instructed not to.

Two such people to issue the warning were his wife Deborah and Dark Knight trilogy director Nolan, who was hired as an executive producer on the film when Snyder was in charge.

“They came and they just said, ‘You can never see that movie,” he revealed in a new interview with Vanity Fair.

Speaking about her initial reaction to the film, Deborah added: “It was just… it’s a weird experience. I don’t know how many people have that experience. You’ve worked on something for a long time, and then you leave, and then you see what happened to it.”

Snyder also said that she “knew” Whedon’s version of the film would “break [her husband’s] heart”.

Charisma Carpenter (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fame) is the latest, and her claims about Whedon are particularly dark. Fisher, who played android Cyborg in the 2017 blockbuster, made waves by launching an active social media campaign against Whedon, Warner Bros., and DC Comics.
