Gadot & Affleck join the Justice League Snyder Cut movement
As if social media wasn’t already flooded with fans attempting to convince Warner Bros. to release the Synder Cut of Justice League, Ben Affleck (Triple Frontier) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman 1984) have taken to Twitter to join the calls for the release of the fabled version of the superhero blockbuster.
The two join Ray Fisher and Jason Momoa in the stars of the film who are seemingly confirming the cut’s existence, and based on the pace of these posts alongside the black-and-white studio headshots of Gadot and Fisher, this might be building to something exciting for those crying out for its release. Should Warner Bros. release the Snyder Cut on HBO Max? Let us know in the comments below!
While no word has been heard from Ezra Miller due to a lack of social media from the star and Henry Cavill remaining far away from the project following the film’s disastrous release, it would make sense he and Fisher would like to see Snyder’s cut brought to life as key scenes surrounding their persona lives landed on the cutting room floor. Everything from Iris West (Kiersey Clemons) to Cyborg’s life as a football star before his car accident has been teased as never released footage that was teased in trailers for the film.
Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League, which features a screenplay from Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio, stars Affleck as Batman, Cavill as Superman, Gadot as Wonder Woman, Momoa as Aquaman, Miller as The Flash, Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
Released in November 2017, the film earned mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, praising the action and performances from Gadot and Miller while criticizing every other aspect of the film, namely the inconsistent tone that many fault Joss Whedon (The Avengers) for after taking over directorial duties from Snyder. With a large budget of $300 million and a break-even point of $750 million, the film is considered a box office bomb having grossed only $658 million.
The next film set in the DC movie universe is the Suicide Squad spin-off sequel Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn), which is set to hit theaters this February.[Gallery not found]
