The Zack Snyder-directed original cut “Justice League” remains something of a holy grail amongst fanboys, despite no released proof of a cut actually existing. What is certain is that if there is a completed earlier version of the film, there are zero plans for it to see the light of day over at Warner Bros. Pictures.
With the announcement this week of the AT&T and Time Warner merger being cleared to go forward, the Snyder fans who have been doing everything in their power to encourage Warners to release the ‘Snyder cut’ have now turned their attention towards AT&T to get them to do it with fan postings on social media requesting the earlier cut release.
That group have been bolstered by recent comments by “Justice League” storyboard artist Jay Oliva who responded to a fan comment on Twitter (via CBM) with:
“I think they are responding to people saying that the Snydercut (prior to Whedon’s involvement) does not exist and is not a cohesive story because Zack left. It may not be 100% polished but all of the planned scenes were shot and edited into a full timeline… What I meant with 99% is that all of the scenes Zack envisioned was shot and exists in one form or another. Of course there are still vfx that is unfinished but I never inferred that the film was 99% done. Rather that Zack’s vision was all shot except for a few reshoots planned.”
Snyder famously left due to a family tragedy and before additional photography began, leaving Joss Whedon to ultimately complete the reshoots and film with his own cut.
