“I never wanted this”: Zack Snyder’s wife is glad he never got to make a Star Wars movie

Since launching his career in 2004 with Dawn of the Dead, Zack Snyder has helmed multiple world-building franchises with great success. Whether it’s his time at DC through films Watchmen and Batman vs. Superman, the 300 films, or his latest project, Rebel Moon, Snyder has found continued success in the industry.

Still, Snyder has yet to create a franchise on the scale of Star Wars, even as fans will sketch the similarities between the two epic space operas. It turns out those similarities aren’t unfounded, and Rebel Moon was initially a Star Wars movie.

While it may be a feat of immense pride to be at the helm of an in-universe film, Snyder’s wife and production partner Deborah Snyder revealed last year how glad she was that Rebel Moon didn’t become a Star Wars project.
