Barbie’ Director Greta Gerwig Addresses Controversial Joke About Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’

With ‘Barbie’ finally hitting theaters after an extensive marketing campaign, fans are eagerly diving into the film, and with that comes the risk of spoilers emerging. Among the milder spoilers lies a throwaway joke that has the potential to ignite a storm of reactions across social media. Director Greta Gerwig addressed this particular joke in a recent interview with ComicBook, shedding light on its origins and the unintended impact it might have on fans.

In the film, during a crucial moment in Barbieworld, the Barbies must snap out of a trance to team up with Stereotypical Barbie (played by Margot Robbie) and resolve a dangerous situation. Alexandra Shipp (known for her role in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’) portrays one of these Barbies who emerges from the trance and attempts to describe her experience by saying, “it’s like I’ve been in a dream where I was really invested in the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League.” This passing remark caught the attention of fans, leading to questions directed at Gerwig about its significance.

Gerwig confessed that she hadn’t fully grasped the appeal of the Snyderverse, and in the interview, she acknowledged the passionate Zack Snyder fans and their fervent movement. The filmmaker revealed that her lack of familiarity with the movement inadvertently birthed the joke. In the scene, Shipp’s Barbie goes from being vaguely aware of the movie to becoming obsessed with it, only to suddenly lose interest once she snaps out of the trance.

Zack Snyder fans have gained a reputation across social media, especially on Twitter, for wholeheartedly supporting the director and reacting strongly to opposing views. This movement successfully pushed Warner Bros. to release the Snyder cut of ‘Justice League,’ after significant changes were made to Snyder’s original vision for the 2017 blockbuster. The four-hour cut, eventually released on Max, further solidified fans’ admiration for the director’s work.

As more people watch ‘Barbie,’ the impact of the joke on Zack Snyder fans remains to be seen. Gerwig clarified that the joke wasn’t intended to criticize the 4-hour ‘Justice League’ movie itself but rather to shed light on the potential toxic behavior that can emerge on the internet.

‘Barbie’ is now showing in theaters, and fans can experience the film firsthand.
