Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal reporter Ben Fritz reached out to some DC fans on Twitter about a story that he is working on. What did all of these DC fans have in common? They were all hardcore supports of the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement.
Ever since Justice League hit theaters, some fans have been campaigning for Warner Bros. to release director Zack Snyder’s original cut of the movie. Part of WB’s hesitation, besides the millions of dollars they’d have to put in to finish it (it was just a rough cut), is the fact that they didn’t like Snyder’s cut. It was The Wall Street Journal that reported that Snyder showed Warner Bros. his rough cut in early 2017 and they weren’t satisfied with it. That’s what lead to Joss Whedon being hired, as well as the extensive reshoots.
But now it appears that fans cries have been heard. The Wall Street Journal is a huge and very respected publication. A reporter like Frtiz wouldn’t just get one side of the story, and it’s very likely that Warner Bros. will comment for the first time about the Snyder Cut in his article. Fritz will probably even try to get a comment from Snyder himself.
One of the fans who Fritz interviewed said that the article will be published around San Diego Comic-Con, which is just a couple of weeks away. Good or bad, fans should have an answer about the future of the Snyder Cut of Justice League soon.
