In the wake of the box office disaster that was Justice League, the future of movies from DC Comics has been unclear. Despite the success of Wonder Woman and Aquaman at the box office, Warner Bros. Pictures has been trying to distance themselves from the interconnected universe of superheroes created by director Zack Snyder. The success of Joker will only bolster that initiative, and it appears the future of DC Comics on screen will include the return of The Flash, a new movie for Green Lantern, potentially the involvement of J.J. Abrams, and development of projects at HBO Max. Here’s what we know. Read More »
Will we ever see The Snyder Cut, the fabled alternate version of Justice League? I really don’t know. But a lot of people want it to see the light of day – not just fans, but the folks associated with the film as well. Last night, director Zack Snyder and a large chunk of the Justice League cast took to social media to petition Warner Bros. to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. The comments looked so coordinated that many assumed it was all a build-up towards an official announcement that the cut was coming – perhaps to HBO Max. But that’s not the case. According to Warner Bros., there are no immediate plans to release the Snyder Cut. Unless they’re lying and this is all part of a very elaborate campaign.

Over the past two years, something has become undeniably clear: director Zack Snyder‘s “Snyder Cut” of Justice League actually does exist. It’s not a finished version of the movie that could have been released in theaters, and whether the DC fans who have been loudly clamoring for it will ever get to see it themselves remains an open question. But a Snyder version of the movie does exist, and Aquaman star Jason Momoa is the latest to see it – and to give it a one-word review.

It’s been awhile since we last discussed the prospect of Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League. But since there’s a contingent of fans out there who just can’t stop demanding that Warner Bros. Pictures release the director’s original vision for the DC Comics superhero ensemble movie, it’s still a (somewhat) relevant topic of discussion.
Director Kevin Smith is the latest to offer up details on the existence of the Snyder Cut of Justice League. While he didn’t work on the DC Comics film at all, he does have a number of ties to the comic book world in its various forms of media. And in his discussions with people at different levels of production on the movie itself, he has confirmed that there is a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League that exists, but it’s not in any form that fans would probably want to see released.

Director Zack Snyder has a presence at San Diego Comic-Con this year, even though the filmmaker himself isn’t attending the convention. Some of his fans have organized an effort to convince Warner Bros. to release the Snyder Cut of Justice League, going as far as to hire a plane to fly over the convention center with that messaging on it yesterday.
Snyder himself isn’t there to see this support in person – instead, he’s off shooting his next movie, a zombie thriller called Army of the Dead. And now he’s released the first look at his cast – including Avengers: Endgame‘s Dave Bautista – all suited up to kick some zombie ass.

It’s been about a year and a half since Justice League hit theaters, and there are still fans who are clamoring for Zack Snyder‘s original cut of the DC Comics superhero movie that never made it to theaters. In fact, there’s a GoFundMe campaign that raised $20,000 to pay for a small campaign at Comic-Con to promote the mere desire of some fans to see the director’s cut of Justice League.
In the meantime, Zack Snyder continued to add fuel to the fire and keep the social media outlet Vero in business with a Father’s Day post that tantalized fans about what they didn’t see happen in Justice League. The filmmaker posted a piece of concept art with the villain Darkseid laying waste to a planet by enacting the Anti-Life Equation, which is meant to illustrate how hope, love, and freedom are all meaningless. Darkseid uses the mathematical formula and an entire army to spread despair and destruction. Read More »
