Zack Snyder’s Wife
Zack Snyder is currently married to Deborah Snyder (née Johnson). She graduated from Ithaca College in 1991. The couple met in 1996, although they have only been together since 2004. They were married on October 25, 2004, at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Manhattan, New York. The couple currently lives in Pasadena, California.
Like her husband, Deborah is an American producer of feature films and television commercials. They have often worked together as his production partner on films such as Watchmen and 300. After producing the film 300, she has produced all of Snyder’s films since then.
Family and Children
Zack Snyder has eight children. He had four; Olivia, Willow, Autumn, and Eli from his first marriage to Denise Weber. He had two more; Ezekiel and Jett Elin from his relationship with producer Kirsten Elin. He also adopted two children with his current wife Deborah Snyder. His children were partly responsible for his animation debut Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. In an interview with Chicago Parent, he explained that he was inspired by his son’s love for the book series The Owls of Ga’Hoole.
Snyder’s Daughter’s Death
The tragedy struck Snyder’s family in March 2017, when Zack’s daughter Autumn took her own life. The daughter of director Autumn was only 20 years old when she died. The details of Autumn’s death have been kept under wraps. She attended Sarah Lawrence College and worked on a science fiction novel she hoped to publish.
Although Autumn had no intention of becoming an actress, Snyder had put her in a short cameo in his Superman remake, Man of Steel. Autumn loved writing and helping others. In 2014, she founded the Write-A-Thon Charity to end the homelessness of mothers and their children. She wanted to provide a roof over the heads of children who were not as privileged as she was. Snyder had the fall with his first wife, Denise Weber.
Zack and Deborah Snyder were both working on the superhero movie “Justice League” when their daughter died. He had tried to bury himself in work to get through the pain. However, Zack and his wife Deborah decided to resign from finishing the film “Justice League” to spend time with their family.
Joss Whedon, the Avengers’ filmmaker, was hired by Warner Bros. to accompany the film through post-production and the shooting of some additional scenes. There was a rumor that the new director would end up reshooting much of the film. However, the “Justice League” didn’t play at the worldwide box offices as expected. The superhero team-up film opened on November 17, 2017, with a disappointing $94 million, with several fans guessing what went wrong and who to blame.
Eager Snyder fans believe that Snyder’s original cut of the film would have been better, and this has caused many to see the original cut before Snyder leaves the film. On January 6, a small group of fans gathered outside Warner Bros. headquarters to demand the release of Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League.
