Let the Justice League insanity end.
Since the release of Justice League in 2017, fans have spent two years demanding the release of the fabled “Snyder Cut” of the film, with even Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) getting in on the action. But, according to Warner Bros. insiders, the release of this cut is simply a pipe dream.
Variety revealed that Warner Bros. have “little appetite” for “spending the millions of dollars it would require to finish visual effects and editing work on Snyder’s version.”
The report also adds that there’s little desire for them to put the Snyder Cut on HBO Max, the streaming home of DC films in the US.
“That’s a pipe dream,” a knowledgeable insider told Variety. “There’s no way it’s ever happening.”
The whole argument around the Snyder Cut is baffling, as most fans didn’t like the final cut on Man of Steel or Batman V Superman – both of which were entirely Snyder’s cut – so what is it about this mythical version of Justice League that makes fans believe that it will be any better than the cut released in cinema?
For many it seems to revolve around the question “but what if it is better?” or even “it can’t be any worse.” But, Warner Bros. aren’t likely to take the chance of another version of the film also failing just for the possibility that a few more fans might be happy with this cut – it’s just too big of a gamble.
So, we call for the cut’s release all we like, but it seems that Warner Bros. have made up their mind. It’s been two years – and two highly-successful DC films – let’s move on already.
