The never-ending saga of the Snyder Cut, the rumored extended, original version of DC’s 2017 Justice League, just got a bit more interesting. Today, Zack Snyder himself took to Vero–a social media website everyone thought was dead long ago–to post an apparent confirmation.
“Is it real? Does it exist? Of course it does” written overtop of film canisters labeled “JL Director’s Cut” with a runtime of a whopping 214 minutes, which clocks in at a little over three and a half hours. For those of you playing along at home, that’s about an hour and a half longer than the theatrical cut of the movie, which was around two hours long.
Still, the confirmation of the Snyder Cut’s reality doesn’t actually mean the film will ever see the light of day. Dedicated fans have been working nonstop for two full years, even going as far as to rent out billboards and advertisements at major pop culture events like San Diego Comic-Con to beg for the movie’s release to no avail. However, with this latest development, and the recent support shown by Justice League actors like Gal Gadot on social media, it certainly seems like there might be something brewing.
Regardless of the Snyder Cut’s hypothetical potential release, DC does have a new film coming that is right around the corner. Wonder Woman 1984 is going to hit theaters on June 5, 2020. Perhaps there will be some sort of cross-promotional Justice League re-release to celebrate the release of Diana’s latest solo outing? Only time will tell.
