We’ve seen Zack Snyder’s friends come out in support of Warner Bros. releasing his original cut of Justice League, but Yahoo caught up with Superman actor Henry Cavill to get his stance, and he just doesn’t see the point and would rather focus on the future.
“I don’t know if [a Snyder cut] actually exists so the only way I can look at it is as a business model, and I don’t know what difference it’s going to make,” Cavill told Yahoo during the press tour for Mission: Impossible – Fallout. “There are stories to be told, which need to be told and adjustments that can be made, but that’s not going to make any difference.
“I think it might be entertaining, for sure, and go, ‘Oh look, now I’ve scratched that itch,’ but it’s not going to change anything that I can think of, it’s not going to make huge amounts of money all of a sudden for a studio.
“They’re not going to release it into cinemas and so they’re not going to suddenly make an extra few hundred million,” Cavill added. “So it would be interesting to see what the difference is, but I’d rather focus on the future rather than what’s been.”
Update: Shortly after I published this interview, Warner Bros. gave their first official comment about the Snyder Cut. They have no plans to release “any alternate versions” of Justice League.
What do you make of Cavill’s comments about the Snyder Cut of Justice League? Let me know below.
