Following a report from Variety, it seemed as though any potential for a release of the Snyder Cut was completely lost. However, the director himself has told fans not to lose hope.
On November 17 2017, Justice League was released theatrically in the United States, and it wasn’t the movie that fans were hoping it would be. After the tragic loss of his daughter, Zack Snyder had to step away after production wrapped. Joss Whedon stepped in for the remainder of post-production and reshoots, thus making the theatrical cut of Justice League the “Wedon Cut”. It’s been just over two years now, and the fabled “Snyder Cut” is still being discussed by fans across the globe.
Two years later, in 2019, multiple celebrities (including Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck) took to Twitter with the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, keeping the campaign going strong. Even Zack Snyder himself jumped in with tweets of his own supporting those asking for his cut of the film. While this seems like great news, there has been no official statement or news from Warner Bros. if the Snyder Cut will ever be released, but Snyder is telling fans not to lose hope.
A Twitter user tweeted directly to Snyder and said, “Say something, I am losing hope”. Snyder replied with one word, “Don’t”. While WB has stayed silent on the matter, the lengths Snyder is going to for his project speaks volumes. It appears to be out there and it could be released in some form someday. While a theatrical release of the Snyder Cut will probably never happen, it’s not too much of a stretch to believe it could show up on HBO Max or possibly a home media release.
While fans are still left in the dark if they’ll ever see the directors original vision for the DC team-up movie, they can rest easy knowing the director is saying not to give up. Keeping the hashtag going on social media is all fans can do for now, as Warner Bros. are the ones who will have to make the final decision regarding any form of release. But with a large fan base out there and all the support from multiple celebrities, anything is possible.
