Over two years after it first debuted, Justice League has had a bit of a resurgence in the pop culture world, thanks to conversation about whether or not there is a "Snyder Cut". The elusive alternate cut would showcase Snyder's original vision for the film before he had to step down due to a family tragedy, and has captivated fans of the director for quite some time. Whether or not the cut exists still remains a mystery, and recent comments by one of the film's co-writers, Chris Terrio, certainly adds to that ambiguity. In a recent interview with Uproxx, Terrio was asked about whether or not the Snyder Cut truly exists, and is being privately shown to people.
"The thing is, I can’t really speak to that at this moment," Terrio revealed. "But I promise that I will talk to you about that very thing at some point after [the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker]."
When the interviewer mentioned that they have "a lot to talk about" in the future, Terrio responded, "Yes, we do. We seriously do."
The conversation around a "Snyder Cut" has been around almost since Justice League debuted in theaters, culminating in a movement has resulted in petitions, guerilla marketing, and quite a lot of social media chatter. When it comes to whether or not a cut should be released - or if the DC Extended Universe should just focus its efforts elsewhere - the cast of the film have drastically different points of view.
"I think the public needs to see it. I'm obviously indebted to Warner and DC and I don't know how they feel about it, but as a fan, I'm very, very happy I got to see it," Jason Momoa, who played Arthur Curry/Aquaman in the film, told MTV News.
"I don’t know if [a Snyder cut] actually exists so the only way I can look at it is as a business model, and I don’t know what difference it’s going to make," Henry Cavill, who played Clark Kent/Superman, said in a previous interview. "There are stories to be told, which need to be told and adjustments that can be made, but that’s not going to make any difference."
