‘Eléktron’: Zack Snyder gives details on the hero’s abandoned film

Upon the release of the ‘Justice League’ Snyder Cut, director Zack Snyder revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he intends to develop an Eléktron movie.

Eléktron is the alter ego of microbiologist Ryan Choi (Ryan Zheng), one of the scientists who works in partnership with Silas Stone (Joe Morton) at STAR Laboratories.

Sadly, the idea was ultimately rejected after the filmmaker was removed from the “ Justice League ” after his daughter’s death in 2017.

During an interview with Beyond the Trailer, Snyder touched on the subject and gave some details about the film.

“I’ve always wanted to make a film about Ryan Choi set in China, varying between English and Chinese. I think Netflix would have the potential to do that. We are doing this “Army of Thieves”, a pre-sequence of “Army of the Dead” spoken in English, French and German. “

He continued:

“I wanted to pay tribute to the Chinese fans and I’m sure they would be drawn to the story. It would be a very inclusive movie, it wouldn’t be about a Chinese in an American movie. We would be transported to China in this film.

Finally, he praised Zheng and regretted that the audience couldn’t see more of his performance as Choi.

“Ryan is so lovely and amazing. I love this guy. Too bad we don’t see him as Eléktron, but he’s already a superhero and it was a huge joy to work with him.
