Ever since the release of Justice League, fans have been asking to see the Snyder Cut, the original version of the movie as director Zack Snyder envisioned it. Those fans include Jason Momoa, who played Aquaman in the film and is reprising the role in his solo film this month. Momoa really wants to see that Snyder Cut, and he doesn’t have a problem letting people know.
Justice League had a bit of a rough production. The DCEU went through some course correction following the reception of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which involved several changes to Justice League, which was already in production. Due to a personal tragedy, Zack Snyder was unable to finish work on the movie, and Joss Whedon stepped in to escort it to the finish line.
Several scenes and bits of footage that were filmed for Justice League were ultimately left out of the film, such as the introduction of Kiersey Clemons as Iris West or more overt references to the supervillain Darkseid. This has led a portion of fans to cry out for Warner Bros. to release the Snyder Cut so they can see what they believe will be a better version of the movie.
It’s been up to debate whether such a cut of Justice League exists, but if there is one lying around in the Warner Bros. archives, Jason Momoa wants to see it. The actor told MTV News that he’s “obsessed” with the Snyder Cut. Being an actor in the movie, Momoa has inside information on what was originally supposed to happen with his character, so it makes sense that he’d want to see the version that he was presumably pitched.
This isn’t the first time that Momoa has discussed the Snyder Cut. The actor recently brought up how Aquaman’s story was originally going to end and how it would have lead directly into his solo movie.
It’s anyone’s guess as to if the Snyder Cut (if it exists) will see the light of day, but it’s certainly fascinating to consider. There aren’t many movies that have gone through this experience, if at all. Snyder has been opening up more about the movie in recent months, sharing new information of cut ideas or concept art, and it’s been very interesting to follow.
Well, I can’t speak with any authority on if you will see the Snyder Cut, but I can say for sure that there are plenty of opportunities to see Aquaman. The solo movie for DC’s undersea hero hits theaters on December 21. To find out more about the film, here’s everything we know so far. Here are more releases in 2018, and what’s already on the film schedule for 2019.
