Former Daredevil Showrunner Wants To See Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut
The Justice League fallout has been fast, furious and, at times, difficult to examine from afar.
But if there’s one thing we do know, it’s that Zack Snyder stepped aside midway through production to allow Joss Whedon (Avengers, Batgirl) to shepherd Warner’s big-name blockbuster over the finish line. Back then, it was reported that Snyder was taking time off to deal with a family tragedy, leaving the Powers That Be with little choice but to hire a replacement in the midst of filming.
Whedon’s sudden appointment led to a series of extensive reshoots, according to multiple sources, and ever since the tentpole hit theaters, fans have been crying out for the studio to release Zack Snyder’s cut of the movie. Whether such a thing even exists has been the subject of much debate over the past few months, but some people just won’t let it die and now, former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight has voiced his desire to one day see the director’s original vision for the pic as well – showing his support for Snyder by Tweeting out “I’m with Zack” in reply to a fan question.
Unfortunately it doesn’t look like DeKnight, or anyone else for that matter, will get their wish here. Snyder got fired from the production pretty early on from what we understand, and while we know that something of his was definitely screened for WB execs, it’s widely assumed that it was nothing more than an extremely rough cut that would take a fair bit of money to complete – which, given how much the studio’s lost on the film already, we don’t imagine they’d be willing to do.
Nevertheless, Justice League is currently available across Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, and DVD (you can grab it off Amazon, here). Looking further afield, the DCEU is expected to continue through the release of Aquaman this December, when Jason Momoa’s King of the Seven will square off against King Nereus, who is seemingly the estranged father of Queen Mera, not a potential love interest.
