Jason Momoa claims he has seen the “Justice League” Snyder cut, but according to composer Danny Elfman whatever Momoa saw was most likely unfinished. In a new interview on “The Big Reviewski” podcast, Elfman doubts that a releasable version of the Snyder cut exists. Many comic book movie fans were left wondering whether or not the Snyder cut’s release was imminent after actors like Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot championed its release on social media November 17, the two-year anniversary of the film’s theatrical release. Elfman replaced Junkie XL as “Justice League” composer after director Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the movie following Zack Snyder’s exit.
“Well, the thing is, he never finished it,” Elfman said of Snyder. “So, I don’t know quite how they’d do [a Snyder cut]. He had a tremendous tragedy, which forced him to not finish the film. I don’t quite understand this, because it wasn’t like he was fired, and that there is a Director’s Cut that is a finished movie and that the studio fired him and then hired Joss.”
“When Joss came on the film, he stepped in with only a few days notice, to pick up the helm because of this terrible, terrible tragedy that happened,” Elfman continued. “So it is kind of a unique situation. I mean, there is definitely other movies where the director was fired, and a studio radically changed the movie because they didn’t like it. And as a fan, you go ‘I wonder what the director did, before the studio changed the movie.’ But I’m not really aware of how that dynamic would really apply here.”
Kevin Smith shared similar thoughts on the Snyder cut earlier this year when he said that the Snyder cut exists but only as a rough cut or assembly cut of the footage Snyder shot during production. Visual effects had not been completed by the time Snyder left and Whedon joined the production. Whedon oversaw post-production and directed a handful of reshoot scenes that drastically changed the tone and story of what Snyder had planned. Junkie XL revealed last month he completed his “Justice League” score before Snyder left, but it was dropped in favor of Elfman’s work.
Cyborg actor Ray Fisher confirms Snyder Cut of Justice League exists. The actor went on to say that the only people who think otherwise are 'trolls.' DC fans have been calling on Warner Bros. to release director Zack Snyder's original cut of the doomed movie for over two years now. The #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement has been all about positivity and has helped to raise money for a number of great causes, while also keeping the Snyder Cut alive in the eyes of the public.
It has been confirmed by Zack Snyder that Ray Fisher's Cyborg has a larger part in his cut of Justice League. The director has posted numerous pictures from his cut on social media over the years to prove it. However, Fisher himself has not yet had a chance to see the Snyder Cut. 'There was a point in time when I was supposed to watch it [The Snyder Cut], but the timing didn't work out,' said Fisher during a Twitch stream over the weekend.
When the Snyder Cut of Justice League first started to gain momentum online, there were many who completely dismissed the idea of it even existing. Some of those people still believe that Zack Snyder has just been trolling fans this whole time in an effort to get more attention to his other projects. Ray Fisher can confirm that the Snyder Cut is real and had this to say.
'We're at a point where we can acknowledge the Snyder Cut does exist, and if you speak to anyone that says it doesn't exist then they're trying to troll you, so do not engage with them, don't feed the trolls.'
Aquaman star Jason Momoa claims to have seen the Snyder Cut of Justice League, as have other people close to the project. By the time Zack Snyder had to leave the production, it is believed that production was far enough along that a rough cut could have been assembled. The studio brought on Joss Whedon to take over the reshoots, which ended up lasting months and costing millions of dollars. From what Snyder has said, the movie that ended up in theaters differed wildly from what he originally envisioned.
Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher Ezra Miller, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Henry Cavill have all stood behind Zack Snyder and his original cut of Justice League. Affleck has implied that the production was doomed after the director left, while Momoa has praised the Snyder Cut after watching it. DC fans are holding out hope that HBO Max will host the cut in the near future, but there has been no official talks that have been made public. For now, Ray Fisher claims that the Snyder Cut of Justice League is the real thing. If so, when can we all see it? Ray Fisher's quotes from the Twitch stream were transcribed by Samuel KentMan's Twitter account.

That’s right, New York’s hottest club is The Snyder Cut of Justice League. This place has everything. Superman with a black suit. An origin story for Darkseid. A high school football career for Cyborg, a romance for The Flash, much more somber dialogue, Spud Webb, and more.
Seriously though, the more stuff that Zack Snyder releases online about his cut of Justice League, the more I can’t see how this movie could have turned out good. Sure, it might have been more in line with what Zack Snyder did leading up to this, but more than likely it still would have been an absolute mess. But at least it’s single-handedly keeping Vero alive.
At this point, Warner Bros. Pictures might have to spend the money to finish The Snyder Cut of Justice League or else they’re not going to have anything worth a damn to entice viewers to subscribe to HBO Max this year.
