If you complain enough, then they will make it. At least that’s what fans of #TheSnyderCut are saying after the confirmation of the highly-rumored and discussed Zack Snyder cut of 2017’s Justice League.
For those of you unfamiliar, Snyder had to step away from production of WB/DCs Justice League after suffering a tragic death in his family.
WB brought in Joss Whedon to finish the film up, which included reshoots and an overall retooling of the final film, which he brought over the finish line with mostly negative reactions.
Justice League was such a giant misstep for WB/DC that it essentially killed their plans for an extended universe and has caused WB/DC to opt for solo films with no real connective tissue.
There have been so many rumors as to how much of the film was actually Snyder’s and how much of the film was Whedon’s.
Now, HBO Max (the latest streaming service that you will have to subscribe to) has announced a 2021 release of Zack Snyder’s rumored new cut, which will include a 20-30 million dollar budget and either be a massive 4+ hour cut or split up into a mini series.
A few things to note here — this version might be different than Snyder’s original intention as he now has more money to play with and the power of time on his side — has he learned from his past Batman v Superman mistakes?
Also, this opens up a mad world of audiences begging or demanding for something and essentially getting it one way or another, which can be both great, but also very dangerous.
I think in this particular case; this is a very good thing. Snyder started the DC-U and deserves the chance to finish his portion of it properly, instead of the abrupt finish after BvS and a half-assed Justice League.
But I worry what this could mean for other properties and audiences’ failure to accept an artist’s vision (Star Wars: The Last Jedi).
Are you excited for this new cut of Justice League? I personally am, mostly because I dug Snyder’s tone and I really wanted to see his take on the league, not to mention I wanted to hear Junkie XL’s original score and see a movie without Superman’s hideous mustache.
Justice League: Snyder Cut will drop sometime in 2021, exclusively streaming on HBO Max, which debuts next week.
