Zack Snyder fans faked signatures on a petition for his original cut of Justice League to be released, and now they’re being accused of faking social media conversations with the crew about it as well.
Last week, a post went viral on social media of a conversation between a fan and Richard Cetrone, Ben Affleck’s stuntman for Justice League. In the alleged post, Cetrone can be seen saying that a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League exists.
Batman-on-Film reached out to Cetrone for confirmation on that social media conversation and Cetrone said it was fake. “I’m sorry to disappoint you, but although I will always support Zack Snyder that story of me claiming there is definitely a Snyder JL cut was fake,” Cetrone said.
Whether that’s true, or he just got a stern phone call after the post went viral and is denying it now is anyone’s guess.
Here are the facts: Zack Snyder turned in a cut of Justice League in early 2017. Warner Bros. didn’t like it, and Joss Whedon was brought in to rewrite some of the script for reshoots. Snyder’s cut was not complete, lacking many visual effects, and therefore doesn’t exist in any kind of “ready to be released to the public” form.
If fans want Warner Bros. to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, first they need to #FinishTheSnyderCut. That most likely won’t happen, as it would cost the studio millions of dollars. Justice League already lost them a lot of money, they’re not going to continue to invest any more into it.
