For fans of Zack Snyder who wanted to see what he had in mind for ‘Justice League,‘ there is a legendary “Snyder Cut” that is said to exist to show the story he had meant to tell. We’ve heard rumors about this cut ever since Joss Whedon took over and redid much of the film in 2017 after the tragic suicide of Snyder’s daughter.
While these reports have all been rumors, Kevin Smith has added his name to the list of those who will share that this cut exists. Only, it isn’t what fans have been hoping for.
According to Smith on the “Snyder Cut” of ‘Justice League’ existing:
“I’ve not seen it firsthand. I’ve spoken now to enough people at various levels in that production. There IS a Snyder cut. For sure. That’s not a mythical beast. It exists. Now, it’s not a finished movie by any stretch of the imagination. There were things that went away from the story that they shot that didn’t wind up going into (visual) effects or anything like that.”
What does that means for fans have been crying out for the cut for years?
“So I would assume, based on what I’ve been told, that large sections of that Snyder Cut are, you know, pre-viz (with) a lot of green screen. We’re not talking a finished movie…the one I’ve heard everyone speak of was never a finished film. It was a movie that people in production could watch and fill in the blanks. It was certainly not meant for mass consumption.”
That means if the “Snyder Cut” were ever to be released in its current form, there is still a lot missing from the film both in terms of the plot and the visuals.
Would you still want a “Snyder Cut” if ‘Justice League’ released even if it doesn’t have the full film shot and was missing many of the special effects? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
