With the recently released Rebel Moon: Part One – A Child of Fire making controversial rounds around the internet, it seems that Zack Snyder has something to say. In an interview with iNews, the director talked about his love for his director’s cuts.

It’s my experience that the director’s cuts of my movies are universally considered better than what I released in the movie theatre under the thumb of people that know better than me. I wasn’t fighting anyone.”

He further continued,

I guess my kneejerk aesthetic happens to be darker. If I go with my instincts it ends up being R-rated. Director’s cuts I’ve done in the past have always been motivated by a contentious relationship with the studio.”
