Justice League: A Snyder Cut Would Be…Complicated

It’s time we DC fans face facts. There will be no Snyder cut. The geekdom rallied and bellowed out a war cry, and it sounded like “reresethusnydekcut.” Geeks stood up in droves. The goddamn uber-geek, Kevin Smith himself titled an entire episode of his Fatman Beyond podcast, “Into the Snyder-verse.” I think the closest we may ever get is a string of unused concepts, and sour tears paving the way back to Apocalypse.

I mean there’s been a ton of cool concepts that appear to have been magically lifted out of the film. Apparently, there was supposed to have been a Green Lantern intro, and a cool ass Darkseid introduction. Even the color palette of blacks and silvers that has become Zack Snyder’s hallmark was given a brighter wash in the final film.

Would have been. Could have been. We may never know. We do know recently, DCEU collaborator Clay Enos was on the Comicbook Debate podcast. He was queried as to whether he thought a Justice League Snyder cut was on the horizon. At which point he damn near crushed my soul saying:

“I do not know…like that is so outside…look, just the logistics of that are really difficult just because what is it then? Is it a theatrical release and then what does that mean for royalty checks for the hundred or two hundred actors who participated in it,”

Enos went on to say:

“Like it is just a complete mess on so many fronts. Does it get a different IMDB, ya know, because each of those things, the credits become huge consequences financially and so it, my observation is that this business makes anything like that incredibly unlikely and kind of complicated. That said, if there’s a sufficient box office allure they’ll figure it out. I mean there’s probably something pretty close to ready out there that throw in another $20 or $30 million in there and you could maybe see hundreds come from it. It’s a hard one, but consider that it isn’t just like ‘ah hey, just throw it on YouTube.’ There are some massive financial consequence to doing something like that and it sours my optimism, though I do remain optimistic. Like I would love for something like that to happen or exist.”

There’s an appetite out there amongst fans to see Snyder’s pure unalerted vision. In the end, what’s it mean? Warner Bros is probably taking the old mantra about moving forward or eyes on the prize to heart. Because DC is surely focused on what’s on the horizon, and not what almost was. Oh and #releasethesnydercut!
