Fans have been calling for a Zack Snyder director's cut of Justice League ever since it opened in theaters last week and they aren't the only ones. Now, Deadpool creator Robert Liefeld wants to see it as well.
Liefeld took to Twitter today declaring that despite being late in calling for it, he wants to see Snyder's version of the latest DC Extended Universe film. Liefeld even shared a story breaking down the Snyder scenes deleted from the final cut of the film as initially found on Reddit.
100% guilty of being late to this party, but i definitely want to see this version! https://t.co/TNRTnAQpWM— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) November 25, 2017
Liefeld is just the latest voice calling for Snyder's original cut of the film to be released. Fans started an online petition on Change.org has gathered over 130,000 signatures asking for Warner Bros. to release Snyder's original version of the film, complete with Junkie XL's original score instead of the replacement by Danny Elfman. Snyder's son, Jett Elin, has also spoken out about the issue and Snyder himself has supported the director's cut petition.
As most will recall, Snyder left Justice League in May of this year during post-production following the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was then brought on to finish the film and in July it was announced that Whedon was doing reshoots for the film that were rumored to make major adjustments to the movie's tone. When Justice League hit theaters last week, many of the film's critics have been quick to point out that many of the movie's flaws appear to stem from the conflicting visions of Snyder and Whedon as the filmmakers are known for having dramatically different styles.
The demand for a director's cut of Justice League intensified earlier this week when a VFX artist who works on DC's superhero films revealed some of scenes that were cut or changed from Snyder's version, however, despite the intense fan request to see what Snyder's vision for Justice League would have looked like, the VFX artist who goes by LDN_Film clarified on Reddit that there there is no Snyder version of the film, no additional VFX work to be done, no different version of the film.
"There is no 'Snyder cut'," LDN_Film said. "Directors constantly change the edit as they're going along, hence why some shots get half-finished then scrapped -- like some of the leaked ones."
You can decide for yourself if there needs to be a director's cut of Justice League. The movie is in theaters now.
