Incredibly, even though San Diego Comic-Con 2018 came and went without so much as a whisper of an alternative version of the much-maligned superhero feature being presented – despite a report to the contrary – the Snyder Cut of Justice League simply will not die. And I sincerely thought the absence of it from the “largest convention of its kind in the world” would’ve put an end to all this nonsense.
Granted, I concede a director’s cut could’ve delivered Zack Snyder and his vision for the DCEU vindication. After all, it did work wonders for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but surely, a day shall come when it’ll be time to move on, right? Well, apparently, that day is not today.
Having confirmed that everything changed when DC and WB bent to the will of critics and bloggers, who demanded that the DCEU be more like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, storyboard artist Jay Oliva – who’s been a veritable treasure trove of DCEU minutia lately – once again took to his favorite social media platform to adamantly confirm that the Snyder Cut of Justice League does indeed exist.
In response to an outspoken denier on Twitter, Oliva leapt to defend a fellow keyboard warrior, who was merely urging DC and WB to release the Snyder Cut when an adversary intervened and attempted to deny the very existence of a director’s cut.
Here’s what Oliva had to say:
“Yep it does. If it doesn’t then what did Zack screen to execs prior to Whedon? If you don’t care for it then step aside because your just parroting what the bloggers are saying without any real knowledge or insight.”
For those of you who don’t know – and if you don’t know, where the hell have you been? – Justice League hauled in a measly $657 million on a production budget of $300 million and earned a pathetic 40% on RT, which is why so many are calling for the original edit. Whether it’ll ever see the light of day or not remains unknown at this stage, but even despite Oliva’s words here, we wouldn’t hold our breath for it to surface. At least, not in our lifetime.
