While the version of Justice League that is currently playing in theaters was fun, fans understandably are very passionate about seeing the release of Zack Snyder’s Director’s Cut, which would essentially end his three film trilogy that began with 2013’s Man of Steel, followed by 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
There’s a petition that has almost 100,000 signatures demanding that Warner Bros. release Zack Snyder’s cut of the film.
Now, someone out there has taken it a step even further, and leaked the film’s ending with Hans Zimmer’s popular Superman theme!
Definitely makes things different when you add in that music. Leaked deleted scenes from Snyder’s version have also made their way online.
The petition, that we mentioned earlier, states:
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.
Some have said it probably won’t happen, but here’s hoping it does. Fans of Snyder’s deserve to see the director’s cut, and not what Warner Bros. put together quickly and desperately.
Snyder has revealed he hasn’t seen the version currently 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.”
Justice League’s synopsis: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
