Over the last couple of days, Justice League and Zack Snyder have been the talk of the movie news world. A couple days ago it was reported that Zack Snyder was actually fired from the Justice League for his “unwatchable” rough cut of the film, as opposed to stepping down for personal reasons.
Last year at Ace Comic-Con, Ciaran Hinds (Mance Rayder on Game of Thrones), who plays the film’s villain, Steppenwolf, was asked by photographer Jason Laboy what the deal was with a Snyder cut of Justice League.
Here’s what Ciaran Hinds had to say:
“That wasn’t the movie I worked so hard on. We hope the director’s cut comes out because it was better than the movie in the theaters.”
Laboy also said when he asked the rest of the cast, including Ray Fisher, who plays Cyborg, he received very coy reactions from them:
“I can say that the cast, when I asked them, ‘What’s up with the Snyder Cut?’, Ray (Cyborg) looked to me with a big smile and wide eyes and did the sign ‘my lips are sealed,’ the others smiled and said ‘Sorry we can’t talk about it.'”
The plot thickens.
Cirian Hinds made his opinion very clear, and assuming it’s true that the rest of the cast shares those feelings, it makes it difficult to understand why Snyder was fired. Perhaps the cast didn’t see the same cut as the folks who said the footage was unwatchable, or we could simply have a wide spectrum of taste. Perhaps Indiana Jones could search for the lost Snyder cut in the upcoming fifth film.
