This weekend marks the second anniversary of the release of Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s “Justice League” film, the famously compromised DC superhero team-up film from Warner Bros. Pictures.
Snyder stepped down as director on May 2017 after the death of his daughter, Autumn Snyder, so he could be with his family Whedon boarded the film to write new scenes and to complete the project through reshoots.
The theatrical release was a mess, scoring poor reviews and earning a disappointing $657.9 million globally. In the two years since, a movement has surged demanding the release of the ‘Snyder Cut’, a rough assembly cut version of the film. Snyder himself and some of the film’s co-stars Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher have also pushed for this with the release of material from the original version of the film on social media.
Earlier today the story took another twist as the film’s most two high-profile lead actors aside from Momoa – Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck – have both tweeted “#ReleasetheSnyderCut” through their official accounts with Snyder himself retweeting Gadot’s tweet.
The talk has seen that hashtag trending today, with the campaign pushing for nearly a quarter of a million posts about itself, but despite the very vocal push Heat Vision reports that no announcement is imminent about the film or a potential HBO Max streaming service release.
