DC Universe’s Justice League received mixed reviews when it released back in 2017. The film featured Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Aquaman (Jason Mamoa). But, soon after the release, fans began to demand to release director Zack Snyder’s cut. While Zack did receive sole credit for the film, it was Joss Whedon who had the last say on a theatrical cut when he came on board and did extensive reshoots. But, the fans have continued to talk about #ReleaseTheSnyderCut on social media since the film was simplified and received a lot of flak.
The filmmaker has been sharing photos on the social media app Vero teasing how his film was quite different from the theatrical cut. On Tuesday, May 19, fans began to trend #ReleaseTheSnyderCut on Twitter ahead HBO Max launch. Why? Because rumours are rife that the “Snyder Cut” might actually get premiered on the new OTT platform. Since the launch is on May 27, the teaser of his cut will also get unveiled, as per speculations.
Another reason fans thought the announcement was on its way was that on May 18 Man of Steel director Zack Snyder announced that will be hosting a watch party of the 2013 film. “Many of us are struggling during this difficult time. Felt it could be cathartic to come together now for a Man of Steel Watch Party and celebrate the ultimate symbol of hope. Submit some questions, I’ll answer a few after,” he wrote on Twitter.
Recently, it was reported that Zack Snyder held a screening of his cut of Justice League for Warner Bros. where it’s said AT&T executives loved it and reportedly approved to fund it so that the filmmaker can complete the movie. While none of the parties have confirmed it, it remains to be seen whether the “Snyder Cut” will ever be released or not.
Here’s what fans are saying:
