Zack Snyder’s JUSTICE LEAGUE Extended Cut Probably Won’t Be Released

Fans have petitioned for a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, which obviously wasn’t the one we saw in theaters this weekend. Sure, it has a lot of Snyder’s stuff in there, but it was noticeably trimmed down to meet a 2 hour run-time. Warner Bros. has done this in the past with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, but apparently was insistent on doing it yet again.

The petition over at Change.org, says:

Justice League is the culmination of the alien’s story and the beginning of a new chapter in the DC Extended Universe. Fans have been waiting for years, while others have waited decades for the film to finally arrive on the silver screen. The 2hr runtime is disrespectful towards Zack Snyder’s vision and towards the fans who have waited for more than a year to see the alien’s story come to an end. Warner Bros. has set some kind of precedent for this kind of thing, having released the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition with a significant number of scenes cut from the theatrical edition of the movie restored. However, Suicide Squad, another movie where much of the director’s original footage was excised and rearranged for the theatrical cut, received no such restored edition.

According to Screen Rant’s Rob Keyes (who also mentioned Jake Gyllenhaal as a potential Ben Affleck Batman replacement before it went public), it’s “not happening”:

While we’ve seen stranger things happen, Snyder himself has admitted he hasn’t even watched the cut currently playing in theaters:

“I will be honest, I have not seen the film since I stepped away. You know I love these characters. I wish only I could only finish it for you and the others who love MOS, BvS.”

U guys I’m not crying ?????? #zacksnyder

It’d be nice to get an extended cut of Justice League, as it made Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice a lot better. Here’s hoping we get to see it one day, as deleted scenes from the movie are already surfacing online. Snyder sadly wasn’t able to finish the movie due to the tragic death of his daughter in March.
