In speaking with The Fourth Wall podcast, Zack Snyder revealed yet another brick in the wall of hate Warner Bros built to keep him away.
Speaking about a third and final film to the popular 300 franchise, Snyder said:
“I just couldn’t really get my teeth into it. Over the pandemic, I had a deal with Warner Brothers and I wrote what was essentially going to be the final chapter in 300. But when I sat down to write it I actually wrote a different movie. I was writing this thing about Alexander the Great, and it just turned into a movie about the relationship between Hephaestion and Alexander. It turned out to be a love story. So it really didn’t fit in as the third movie. It’s called Blood and Ashes, and it’s a beautiful love story, really, with warfare. I would love to do it, (Warner Bros) said no. You know, they’re not huge fans of mine. It is what it is.”
I’m not here to wax intellectually about whether that sounds like a good 300 film or not. All I can do is go off what’s known and what’s known is that Warner Bros brass is a bunch of snooty, bad decision making, grudge holding Ken Kaniff’s from Connecticut who weirdly go out of their way to shit on a guy they hand picked to run their franchises.
I also know that I just watched Snyder’s Army of the Dead and it had some of the same gnarly glory we saw in his cut of Justice League. Finally, I know that out of every single cast person and co worker reporters have spoken with over the past few years trying to dig up dirt on Zack and why he’s so polarizing? Not a single person had an unkind word to say about him as a person.
So, I’m going to assume Blood and Ashes would have been fucking awesome. If for only the fact that Warner Bros doesn’t. Because Warner Bros decision making of late has been equivalent to a flaming bag of dog shit. With every decision followed by an “It’s poop again!”
