Sorry ‘Justice League‘ fans who have been wanting DC Films and Warner Bros. to release a “Snyder Cut” of the film but Superman doesn’t have your back. Henry Cavill has long been a proponent of part of the Superman story arc which was changed when ‘Justice League’ changed hands to Joss Whedon but the actor doesn’t care if the release happens.
According to Cavill, he stated that: “I don’t know if [a Snyder cut] actually exists so the only way I can look at it is as a business model, and I don’t know what difference it’s going to make. There are stories to be told, which need to be told and adjustments that can be made, but that’s not going to make any difference.”
In other words, Cavill feels that since the DC movies are moving forward based off Whedon’s cut of ‘Justice League,’ seeing what Snyder had in mind wouldn’t change the direction of this cinematic universe.
Now, Cavill isn’t against the release actually happening if a “Snyder Cut” does exist. “I think it might be entertaining, for sure, and go, ‘Oh look, now I’ve scratched that itch,’” he explains, “but it’s not going to change anything that I can think of, it’s not going to make huge amounts of money all of a sudden for a studio.”
So yes, even if this did end up being available as a digital release or on DC Universe, it wouldn’t change the direction of future films. If the effects of the film aren’t complete, that is another reason why we’d likely not see the cut:
“They’re not going to release it into cinemas, and so they’re not going to suddenly make an extra few hundred million. So it would be interesting to see what the difference is, but I’d rather focus on the future rather than what’s been.”
While we have gotten an extended director’s cut of almost every DC Films movie so far, it is true that they don’t tend to make it to the big screen and with the original version not being canon, it would be a stretch to see that much money invested into it.
Do you agree with Henry Cavill that a “Snyder Cut” of ‘Justice League’ is “not going to change anything” or do you still want to see it? With the DC Films cinematic universe moving forward based off the theatrical release that we did see is there any reason to check this one out too outside of curiosity? Share your thoughts below!
