Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck join list of fans and Hollywood stars calling for release of Zack Snyder's cut of 'Justice League'
Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot have jumped on the bandwagon of stars and fans calling for the release of director Zack Snyder's cut of 'Justice League'. The actors who played Batman and Wonder Woman in the ensemble DC Superhero film joined the movement on Twitter on Sunday using the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.
Gadot, in her tweet, included an image of her character, Diana Prince, while Affleck tweeted just the hashtag. Snyder retweeted both actors, along with the comments: "This ancient Amazonian can’t be wrong" and "Neither can Batman." The cut refers to Snyder's original edit of the film which was shelved when he and his wife, Deborah Snyder stepped away from the project following a family tragedy. Joss Whedon, the 'Avengers' writer-director was roped in to wrap up reshoots and production. The film though was a damp squib and left fans unhappy with the final version of the film.
Ardent DC fans still believe the original version exists and are hopeful of seeing it while some went on to diss the movie and make fun of the rumored cut on social media. As reported by Deadline, director Kevin Smith, in an interview with Cinemablend confirmed that there indeed was a Snyder cut.
"I’ve not seen it firsthand. And also to be clear, I know Zack, but it’s not like ‘we’re f**king tight son!'” Smith explained. "That being said, I’ve spoken now to enough people at various levels in that production. There is a Snyder cut. For sure. That’s not a mythical beast. It exists. Now, it’s not a finished movie by any stretch of the imagination."
