Despite several conflicting reports and mixed messages as to whether it actually exists, a number of Zack Snyder fans still haven’t given up hope that Warner Bros. will give us a look at “what might have been” by releasing the ‘Snyder Cut’ of last year’s DC superhero team-up Justice League.
It’s been heavily rumoured (or rather speculated) these past few weeks that an announcement about the Snyder Cut could come at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend during Saturday’s DC Films panel. However, if that’s something on your wishlist for this year’s Comic-Con, then I’m afraid we have some bad news for you.
In a piece over at The Wall Street Journal about Snyder’s Justice League, an unnamed “senior executive” at Warner Bros. has revealed that there will be no mention of a Snyder Cut at Comic-Con, and that the studio has no plans to release any alternate versions of the movie.
The article also goes on to state that there is no evidence that a Snyder cut of the film actually exists beyond a very rough assembly cut from late 2016, which would essentially be an entire post-production away from being releasable.
So, as Superman himself Henry Cavill stated this week, it’s time to stop thinking about the Snyder Cut, and start looking forward to what the future holds for the DCEU.
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. Simmons (Whiplash) as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard (The Danish Girl) as Mera and Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Steppenwolf.
