What does it take to make a movie? In the past, audiences were fairly limited in their sneak peaks behind the curtain. On DVDs and other home media, many directors and other filmmakers included extras that documented what went into their projects, such as deleted scenes, outtakes, and commentary tracks. And, sometimes the production of a movie featured enough material to create its own movie, as was the case with the legendarily so-bad-it's-good film The Room and its making-of documentary The Disaster Artist. But thanks to the advent of streaming, the chance to glimpse the magic and work that filmmakers put into their projects is available at the touch of a button. Case in point, Zack Snyder's Justice League.

Recently, HBO Max's YouTube channel released a look into all the passion, effort, and green screens Snyder put into the movie. The video, which lasts approximately six minutes, gives audiences an idea why many viewers wanted and anticipated the Snyder Cut and why critics are praising it.

A story of Zack Snyder's vision, family, and face masks

Since the Justice League Snyder Cut is Zack Snyder's unadulterated vision, it is only fitting he hosts the behind-the-scenes look. By doing so, he also provides a glimpse into the passion he holds for his job. The video chronicles all the secrets of Justice League's production, such as how Snyder accentuated his directions with live demonstrations and how much green screen he used. Some scenes, such as Jason Momoa stepping out of the ocean, were filmed on location with nary a green sheet in sight, while others used so much green that the only things not bathed in the color were the actors.

According to Snyder, he created this director's cut because he owes it to viewers. In his eyes, audiences have been with him since Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and they deserve to see the culmination of his story. Moreover, in the "making of" video, the movie's stars praise Snyder for his passion and planning, and he returns the favor by stating they made one big happy family.

If you pay close attention to the video, you can tell which scenes were shot during initial filming and which were shot for the Snyder Cut, since the latter feature crew members wearing face masks. Snyder wanted to bring his vision of Justice League to life and he wanted to do it safely.
