It looks like Warner Bros. may have budged into fans request for a Justice League limited edition version. A product listing on Amazon Germany has revealed a format which suggests that the studio will be releasing a version longer than the theatrical cut.
Since the release of Justice League in last November, fans have been signing petitions in an attempt to get Zack Snyder’s version of the movie released for home edition. Although the release of its Digital HD is expected this month, it hasn’t stopped the DCEU community from protesting to get the director’s cut out as well.
According to the product listing, this version of the extended cut has run time of 135 minutes. This means that Warner Bros. could be releasing 15 minutes of extra footage for the home edition.
While it isn’t what fans expected, it looks like some of the scenes that were left in the editor’s room will make be included in the limited edition. Perhaps, scenes involving Vulko (played by Willem Dafoe), Superman, Aquaman etc would be added in.
Still, it is unlikely to expect scenes such as the incomplete CGI sequence involving Barry Allen and Iris West. It looks like the studio does not plan on releasing the director’s cut. However, that hasn’t the campaign for #ReleaseTheSnyderCut to stop.
Earlier yesterday, a popular Youtuber also came forward to organize a rally to request the release of Snyder’s cut. Fans can check it in video out below.
Justice League is officially a box office failure. Although the film barely broke even, it ended its run with an earning of $652 million worldwide.
While the protest continues, Warner Bros. has slowly shifted its main focus towards Shazam!. The project is finally in production and several of the main castings have also been completed. Stay tuned with Pursue News for updates.
