Henry Cavill Says Snyder’s Cut Of Justice League Won’t Make Any Difference


Ever since Justice League spectacularly failed to live up to the hype upon its arrival in theaters last November, DC fans have made it their mission to campaign for the release of the fabled “Snyder Cut,” the original version of the team-up movie untampered by Warner Bros.’ meddling hands and without Joss Whedon’s tonally-mismatched new footage.

The thing is, though, that we’ve heard a lot of conflicting evidence over whether this cut actually exists in its entirety, as it’s hard to tell whether the director actually got to assemble his footage into a watchable movie before he was removed from the production. At the most, it’s possible it exists in its raw form but without the necessary special effects and finishing touches that would make it suitable for release.

To fans, getting the Snyder Cut out there is the be-all-and-end-all, but it seems that Superman star Henry Cavill believes it’s not particularly worth it. While speaking with Yahoo Movies, the actor explained the hard truth is that it won’t suddenly make Justice League a smash hit success.

“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. 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.”

The Brit then went on to clarify that, sure, it would be fun to see it, but even if the Snyder Cut was made public it wouldn’t prove to be that lucrative a move for the studio, following Justice League‘s disappointing box office haul.

“I think it might be entertaining, for sure, and go, ‘Oh look, now I’ve scratched that itch,’ but it’s not going to change anything that I can think of, it’s not going to make huge amounts of money all of a sudden for a studio.”

The reason why it wouldn’t make a ton of cash is because there’s no chance the Snyder Cut would reach the silver screen – it would most likely go straight to VOD or perhaps be dropped on the DC Universe streaming service. For Cavill, then, it would be best just to look at the future of the DCEU.

“They’re not going to release it into cinemas and so they’re not going to suddenly make an extra few hundred million. So it would be interesting to see what the difference is, but I’d rather focus on the future rather than what’s been.”

That “future” comment might be Cavill’s subtle way of prodding WB to get on and commission Man of Steel 2. The star recently said that he would love to face off against Brainiac in the touted sequel to his 2013 solo movie, so maybe fans should be directing their efforts at campaigning for that rather than a revamp of Justice League?
