A lot of DCEU fans really want a Zack Snyder Justice League cut to be released as they feel the Joss Whedon version isn’t what Snyder originally intended.
There is also the fact that the Joss Whedon Justice League cut is considered pretty average; so fans want to see the Snyder cut in the hopes that it is a lot better.
While there has been debate whether or not a Zack Snyder cut even exists (Wall St Journal tried spinning things like it didn’t, but noted storyboard artist Jay Olivia basically shot the article down), the Zack Snyder cut doesn’t appear to be in a completely finished form.
Now Henry Cavill weights in on the matter and offers that he doesn’t think the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League will make any difference and that it is time to move on.
“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,” Henry Cavill recently told Yahoo. “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.”
Henry Cavill continues with mention that while it may be fun, it might not benefit Warner Bros. and that he would rather focus on what’s to come.
“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,” Cavill said. “They’re not going to release it into cinemas and so they’re not going to suddenly make an extra few hundred million. So it would be interesting to see what the difference is, but I’d rather focus on the future rather than what’s been.”
Regarding the future, Henry Cavill is hoping to reprise as Superman in a Man of Steel 2, but there are rumors that new contract negotiations with Warner Bros. have stalled, as Cavill’s manager wants him to be paid as an A-lister. An announcement for Man of Steel 2 was rumored at this past weekend’s Comic-Con; however, no announcement came–and there were no new DC film announcements for that matter. It’s possibly WB might be wanting to see the reception to Henry Cavill’s next film, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which comes out this week, before making any decision on bringing him back as Superman for a Man of Steel 2.
