Zack Snyder confirmed in a new video that he does have the “Snyder Cut” of his 2011 film, Sucker Punch.

Breaking down his career with Vanity Fair, the filmmaker revealed that Sucker Punch was the first time he was forced to really restructure a film in an attempt to commercialize it. “That was the first time where I really faced like a true, radical restructuring of the film for it to be more commercial,” Snyder confirmed. “And there is a director’s cut of that movie that is yet to be released. I’ll say that out loud.”

He also explained that while he saw the film as a “protest movie,” many people at the time didn’t see it that way and criticized Sucker Punch as sexist. ”It’s a movie about genre. You know, I was asked at the time, ‘Why did you dress the girls like that?’ and I always go, ‘I didn’t dress them like that, you did,’” Snyder explained. “I always thought as an indictment in some ways, of, you know, popular culture. I think at the time, I was criticized for it being the opposite, like some sort of sexist rant. But it was fun to make and I still love it to this day.”

Sucker Punch starred Emily Browning in the lead role of Babydoll, a young woman who is sent to a mental institution and is scheduled for a lobotomy. In order to cope with environment, she envisions the mental institution as a brothel and teams up with four other women, portrayed by Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung, to complete “missions” that will help them escape the facility.
