Zack Snyder Tells Warner Bros. to ‘Suck It’ While Directing the Late Show

If one director has had a pretty great year, it’s Zack Snyder. From seeing his vision for “Justice League” finally fulfilled, to releasing his new movie “Army of the Dead,” Snyder is all the rage right now. But how would he fare with his biggest challenge: directing an episode of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert?”

In a sketch for the show to promote “Army of the Dead,” Zack Snyder playfully made fun of himself, indulging in all the Snyder-isms to redesign Colbert’s show. He, of course, created a “dark, gritty” atmosphere, like most of his movies. Then, he recreated his entire office with green screen and CGI, despite the fact the CGI was just the exact same rendering as his actual office. 

Snyder also made sure to get in one his iconic slow-motion with lightning scenes, by throwing a knife at Colbert. From darkness, unnecessary CGI, and slow-mo, Snyder checked all the boxes in this cheeky, lighthearted parody of himself. But what really caught fans attention—and likely their cheers—was when he delivered a pointed, if somewhat coy, message to Warner Bros.

After Stephen Colbert said that this 16-hour late show episode was the beginning of the Late Show Snyderverse, he turned to the camera to say “Suck it Warner Bros. Suck it!” Snyder then, for a second, played politics saying, “Wow! His words, not mine,” before turning to the camera to deliver, “But, yeah, suck it Warner Bros.”

While it was all part of the sketch, we can’t help but think there was some cathartic joy in his statement. Things haven’t been smooth sailing between Snyder and his longtime studio partner Warner Bros. 

Despite the studio finishing his “Justice League” movie, they have indicated that they are not interested in pursuing his vision further. Snyder has also publicly supported Ray Fischer, who has heavily criticized Warner Bros. Moreover, his wife Deborah indicated that Netflix, who took over “Army of the Dead” from Warner Bros., has been a much better fit. 

Take a look at the clip above to see it for yourself. If you are a Snyder fan, you will likely get a kick out of seeing his committed indulgence in this late night bit.
