Justice League is the DC extended universe’s most important movie. Wonder Woman was well received, and has given fans a ray of hope after 2016’s array of bad movies. However, if this rumor is to be believed, fans should not get their expectations too blown out of proportion.
According to Batman on Film, Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut was deemed “unwatchable”.
After reporting on a quote regarding Ray Fisher’s Cyborg character and how the reshoots affected him, here’s what the outlet had to say:
“I can confirm that everything Mr. Morton said is spot-on. The Cyborg character was altered quite a bit during the reshoots. Also, as I’ve been saying since June 2nd of this year, the JL reshoots and the resulting changes being made to the film are significant. These reshoots – which are still taking place – are not standard pick-ups/additional photography. Why? Apparently, an early cut of the film was deemed “unwatchable.” Thus, substantial changes to the film were ordered.”
The most important thing to remember when reading something like this is the likeliness that it isn’t true. While there’s a chance it could be authentic and Justice League might be atrocious, it’s more likely that Batman on Film heard something through the grapevine and decided to hesitantly report it. Take this with a massive grain of salt, Monkeys Fighting Robots readers.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
