Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman in the superhero film franchise, and Affleck, who was recently replaced by Robert Pattinson as Batman, today tweeted #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, a reference to director Zack Snyder's vision for the maligned film.
Released in November 2017, the film earned mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, praising the action and performances from Gadot and Miller while criticizing every other aspect of the film, namely the inconsistent tone that many fault Joss Whedon (The Avengers) for after taking over directorial duties from Snyder.
The online movement reached fever pitch on the second anniversary of the release of Justice League on Sunday (Nov 17) when its stars Gadot and Affleck expressed their support on social media.
Whether or not that version even existed was up for discussion - until, earlier this year, Zack Snyder was filmed apparently telling a fan that it does - and that Warner Bros. has it.
There is no official word from Warner Bros. It would appear those fans have one more member of the genuine Justice League to support their endeavors.
There were also reports stating that Snyder was sacked from the film after Warner Bros executives saw his cut of the movie and decided it was not good enough. With a large budget of $300 million and a break-even point of $750 million, the film is considered a box office bomb having grossed only $658 million.
We Got This Covered reported on Friday that the Snyder Cut could ultimately surface on WarnerMedia's upcoming HBO Max streaming service, with an announcement supposedly happening at the end of this year. "Using the hashtag "#ReleaseTheSnyderCut", the cast shared their thoughts on the Snyder Cut.
Insiders have told The Hollywood Reporter that there is now no plan to release a Snyder cut of the movie.
