There were quite a few scenes from Justice League trailers that weren’t in the theatrical version, making fans wonder just why that was. While it hasn’t been revealed why certain scenes were cut, it probably has something to do with the fact that Warner Bros. were (stupidly) demanding that the film come in at 2 hours or less.
It’s pretty interesting considering some of the scenes were a big part of the film’s marketing. DC Comics fans have launched a petition for a Director’s Cut of the film from Zack Snyder, but a VFX artist from the film recently revealed that it doesn’t exist:
“The film is found in the edit process, rarely does a director start shooting with the entire film plotted out. Some things work, some things don’t. There is no Snyder cut – obviously he had a rough edit in process when he left in February, but the reshoots were done 6 months after that, and he had no final version of the film.
Sure, Zack would’ve probably done things differently to how the movie turned out, but that’s it. There isn’t a secret Zack version hidden somewhere. It just doesn’t exist. There is no cut. People who spread the rumor are the worst, perpetuating rumors of processes they don’t understand.”
If we’re going to get a Director’s Cut from Snyder, it apparently doesn’t exist at this moment in time. An Extended Cut of the current film is more likely at this point but with Warner Bros. – you never know.
