Fast becoming something of Hollywood myth and legelnd, some people still ask if the fabled Snyder Cut of Justice League actually even exists.
More people claim to have seen it, even though it is unfinished. Now another person involved in the movie claims it exists and can be watched.
Eunice Huthart was a winner of the UK version of American Gladiators back in the 1990s. She went on to be one of Hollywood’s most in demand stunt women and rose through the ranks of her trade to become a stunt co-ordinator.
Her credits include GoldenEye, Justice League and Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. While she was out doing press for the VOD and home release of the latest Star Wars movie she was asked for some details by Screen Rant.
She confirmed she was due to start work on The Flash in late April and Early May. She said work on that movie is now paused and due to the pandemic.
She was then asked about the legend that is the Snyder Cut and had this to say:
“There’s a few questions about that, and I’m sure that I’m okay to say I officially know people who’ve seen the Snyder cut and said it’s absolutely amazing. And I do believe that that’s the movie we were making, Zack Snyder’s version of the film. You know, with the heartache of what happened with his daughter, we pulled out [and did] the reshoots of it. So, the movie took a slightly different turn.”
Huthart also confirmed she has plans to watch the cut at some point in the future:
“I watched the cinema release of the film, and I texted Zack to say, ‘What’s this I’m hearing about this Snyder cut? I need to see it,’. And he did promise me next time I’m in LA, that I’ll go watch it. So I will at some point, definitely go and watch the Snyder cut. And I have spoken to people who actually said it’s brilliant. They said it’s absolutely golden.”
Pressure continues to build on Warner Bros. to release this version. They are understandably reluctant to either release a completely unfinished movie or to invest the (likely) millions of dollars required to finish the FX and get it in front of an audience. Getting any stars back should any reshoots be required is also highly unlikely.
For now it seems destined to remain a Hollywood curio firmly in the “What if…” category.
