They’ve got me — those bastards have got me right where they want me. I am all the way in on The Snyder Cut. Beyond in. Galactically in. Well, I’ve been all the way in on The Snyder Cut ever since the abominable ocular and auditory assault that was Joss Whedon’s version of Justice League, but the mere tone of this 30-second teaser already lets me know just how much different, and darker, Zack Snyder’s version is going to be.
The trailer was posted to Instagram by Aquaman star Jason Momoa, who has been one of the most vocal celebrity proponents of The Snyder Cut since Day 1, and you can just tell how genuinely hyped he is that the film will finally see the light of day.
Announced in late May, the sudden resurrection of The Snyder Cut has been nothing short of astounding, as the previously mythical online fan movement pushed Warner Bros. to give Snyder an extra $30 million — which is essentially the budget for Ben Affleck’s recent basketball drama The Way Back — to complete his vision. It’s historic and it speaks to the power of fans’ passion.
