New 'Justice League' behind-scene photo has surfaced and it allegedly shows Star Labs
There was a serious rumor about a Snyder's cut with many DC fans petitioning online to release the version of the movie allegedly shot under the original 'Justice League' director.
'Justice Lague' a movie marred by controversies since the very beginning, even before it released in the theaters back in 2017. DC's ambitious ensemble set-up, featuring an all-star cast of Gal Gadot (as Wonder Woman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ezra Miller (The Flash) and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) the film was originally helmed by Zack Snyder the director responsible for movies like 'Man of Steel' and 'Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice'.
Amongst the many issues one prominent bone of contention was Snyder's involvement with the ensemble movie, especially after the lackluster response to 'Dawn of Justice'. As it turned out, the DC director-producer had to pull out of the project due to some family emergency and to finish the remaining work on 'Justice League' none other than Avengers director Joss Whedon was brought on board.
A mix of two creatives, and allegedly conflicting ideas as far as the plot was concerned ultimately 'Justice League' delivered a moderate success at the box-office urging many DC loyalists to question what the movie would have looked like under Snyder's direction. There were even serious rumors about a Snyder's cut with many petitioning online to release the version of the movie allegedly shot under the original 'Justice League' director.
Almost a year since the release of the DC movie the chatter is still going strong and the recent surfacing of what appears to be a behind the scenes photo from a deleted footage has done little to suppress the speculations. The BTS picture shared online by a Twitter user called Kevin Miranda shows three of the Justice League members — the Amazon princess, King of Atlantis, and DC's speedster — all geared up for action and ready to attack their target in a duel happening in none other than the star labs. Of course, the scene never made its way to the theaters and one can only imagine what appeal such a fight scene would have had on the movie-goers, who were not quite pleased with the final product.
Perhaps if fans get a little too lucky Synder's cut might see the daylight during a certain SDCC event (but that could be a long shot). If storyboard artist Jay Oliva's words are any indication anything is possible.
The artist with clearly some knowledge of what went down behind the scenes earlier clarified rumors that a so-called Snyder's cut ready for theatrical release does not exist but at the same time he didn't rule out chances of a possible screening version. "Well, I wouldn't discount Zack having a trailer ready. He's really good at cutting trailers, but I don't think he's been working on Justice League since I'm sure he has a cut he's happy with that he screened to execs way back in the editing of Justice League prior to Whedon," he said.
"Whether or not anything will be announced for SDCC that's up in the air. I'd love to hear something like everyone else and I'm sure Zack will talk about it at some point in the near future," Olivia said adding, "What do you think will happen when enough of the public outcry reaches them? I'm not an exec at WB nor am I still an employee, but stranger things have happened."
