Justice League is officially out in theaters, and the response has been very polarizing. So much so, in fact, that fans are now requesting to see the original Zack Snyder-cut of the film. The fans in question feel that they weren’t given the film that was originally promised. Honestly, a call for the original cut isn’t surprising considering that the extended edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was, objectively, a much better film than what released in theaters. Also, given the common criticism of Justice League feeling tonally uneven, perhaps the original cut may prove the more cohesive film? Heck, there is even a petition with over 100,000 signatures calling for the release of Snyder’s cut (though it seems that some of those signatures have been forged).
Interestingly, it has been stated that a Snyder cut of Justice League doesn’t even exist, which would obviously render this entire cause moot. However, a new rumor is swirling around Reddit claiming that a Snyder cut of the film DOES exist, and not only that, but it is much more developed than you think. Over at r/DC_CINEMATIC, a mod named TheBatSkeptic is claiming that the cut exists in an “unfinished but notable state”, and that it’s “a rough version that had a lot of finished FX and music.”
While this isn’t confirmation that such a cut exists, r/DC_CINEMATIC is an established sub, and the claim was made by mod who then goes on to announce a revised Snyder-cut petition, free of hateful speech, forged signatures, etc. So basically: there is no proof, but the source seems legit. Only time will tell with this one. Old rumors deemed Snyder’s cut “unwatchable”, and it would be really interesting to see if that’s true, or if the cut was decent, and Warner Bros. was simply feeling the pressure to lighten the film up following the success of Wonder Woman.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League reunites Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope alongside J.K.
