Since the release of Justice League, Warner Bros. has come in for a lot of criticism for its “Frankenstein” cut of the DC blockbuster, with Joss Whedon having been brought in to oversee extensive reshoots after Zack Snyder was forced to leave the project due to a family tragedy.
So far, a petition for the studio to release a Zack Snyder cut has attracted over 150,000 signatures, while the call has also gained support from cinematographer Fabian Wagner, and now it seems we can also add actor Ciaran Hinds to that list.
According to photographer Jason Laboy, the Steppenwolf actor has revealed that he was unhappy with the final theatrical version of Justice League, and is hoping to see Snyder’s original vision receiving its own release.

Of course, we don’t have any direct quotes from Hinds himself, so there isn’t much to go on here, but we do know from the trailers that some of Steppenwolf’s scenes and dialogue ended up on the cutting room floor, so it’s certainly possible that the actor felt his character was a little short-changed in the final movie.
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.
