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 »

Update: It’s been revealed that the Martha Wayne/Martha Kent “twist” mentioned below was, in fact, a joke on Snyder’s part. Hats off to Mr. Snyder, because I have to admit, the joke is pretty damn funny. You can watch him say it in a video below.
One of the most infamous scenes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes near the end, when Batman and Superman have a big CGI smack-down in the rain. During the battle, Batman comes very close to murdering the Man of Steel, but stops when he learns that Supes’ mother is named Martha – which was also the name of Batman’s mother. It’s a moment that was meant to make the xenophobic Batman realize that Superman didn’t deserve his hatred, and while it might work in theory, the scene itself was met with derision.
Director Zack Snyder recently screened several of his movies for an audience, and took the time to discuss them at great length. During that discussion, the Batman v Superman Martha scene inevitably came up. Snyder also dropped some info on a huge, crazy twist that was briefly floated around the idea.

The Avengers director Joss Whedon was brought in to finish Justice League after director Zack Snyder stepped away to deal with a family tragedy. The result was a mess of a movie that tried to distance itself from Snyder’s vision that began in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and take the DC Extended Universe in a different direction. The film didn’t land very well with critics and it also didn’t deliver the box office performance Warner Bros. was hoping for.
Ever since the messy version of Justice League hit theaters, fans of director Zack Snyder have been clamoring to see the director’s cut of the movie that would have resolved the Knightmare sequence which teased a dark future for not just Superman and Batman, but the entire planet. However, Zack Snyder revealed that the original version of the Justice League script never even made it in front of cameras. Read More »
