It would appear that despite the best efforts of fans a director’s cut of Zack Snyder’s Justice League is off the table, but an extended version of the DC superhero team-up may be on it’s way for home-media release.
According to a pre-order listing on Amazon Germany the film has a listed runtime of 135 minutes, which makes it 15 minutes longer than the original theatrical edition that was released in November. Of course this could possibly be a typo on Amazon’s end of things, particularly since the UK version of the site has the film’s runtime listed as 120 minutes.
However, it is not impossible. It is to be noted that Warner Bros. did produce and release extended cuts of both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad for their home-media releases, and it’s likely that plenty of footage was left behind on the cutting room floor during post-production for a 15 additional minutes to be added to Justice League.
Reports have suggested that Justice League will hit Blu-ray and DVD in March, so hopefully we’ll get some official news from Warner Bros. in the very near future.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
