“I’ve seen the Snyder Cut.” Said Jason Momoa to MTV News.
The Elusive ‘Snyder Cut’
In 2013, DCEU (DC Extended Universe) saw the release of ‘Man of Steel’ directed by Zack Snyder. The initial five-film plan got rejected due to bad reception. By then, Snyder’s ‘Suicide Squad’ had finished filming & Justice league was a month away from filming. Owing much to the negative reaction from many critics and fans alike, ‘Suicide Squad’ had to go a lot of screenwriting changes.
After finishing his cut & showing it to WB (Warner Brothers) executives, Snyder was taken down as the director for the film. Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron) re-wrote the script & extensively re-shot the film. It got mixed reviews and was described as Frankenstein. An amalgamation of different body parts like the mixture of the works of two directors.
Aquaman comes in picture
Much to the previous assumption that Snyder’s Cut was a Frankenstein of a film, Momoa’s statement came as a surprise to even the interviewer.
According to the statement, Snyder’s Cut was more complete than what most fans ought to believe (A combination of incomplete VFX & partial audio mixes, added with the dilemma of Henry Cavill’s mustache).
“I think the public needs to see it,” he said. “I’m obviously indebted to Warner and DC. I don’t know how they feel about it, but as a fan, I’m very, very happy that I got to see it.”
Momoa was reluctant to speak further, but the interviewer had another question.
Was the Cut an entirely different movie?
To which Momoa just said, “Yes.”
Future of DCEU
Momoa returns for the sequel of his standalone film, “Aquaman.” The sequel is said to be in works, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick on the script & James Wan to returning in the director’s chair.
Any hopes for the release against #ReleasetheSnyderCut are in vain. For now, Warner Brothers have scrapped any plans for the initial vision of a trilogy of the Justice League.
