Zack Snyder gets fandom in a tizzy after liking a post about his cut of Justice League

May 23rd, 2018 by Marc Comments

We’ve admitted it already, as much as we are in the DC Camp when it comes to their movies, even we have to admit Justice League was pretty dire.

And we’re holding out for the Snyder cut of the movie. For those not in the know, director Zack Snyder left the Justice League movie a considerable amount of time before it was filmed (the announcement was one year ago tonight) and it was revealed that he had left due to the tragic death of his daughter a few weeks earlier, however many have since speculated that Warners got rid of Snyder as they no longer loved his vision for the universe.

Then Avengers and Serenity director Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the movie and make it lighter that Snyder’s vision for the movie…

But, sadly, despite some wonderful moments, the movie turned out to be a massive disappointment.

However, not long after the theatrical release of JL, rumours started circulating that Zack Snyder’s cut of the movie was fairly close to being finished and many involved, including Aquaman actor Jason Momoa, have said they saw his cut of the movie… anyone who watched this trailer will notice that almost all of it is either missing or altered in the cinematic release:

But while many have believed that a director’s cut doesn’t exist, Snyder himself has thrown fuel on the fire tonight but liking a post on Vero [pointed out by good ol’ Reddit] about a supposed screening of a director’s cut of the movie:

We know that Batman V Superman benefited massively from having Snyder’s cut re-instated and we also know of many, many scenes cut from the Snyder version of Justice League so we’re 100% behind this happening.

What say you? Is Snyder playing Devil’s Advocate? Let us know your thoughts…

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.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.

Justice League is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, and DVD.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
