Gal Gadot is joining “Justice League” fans in their campaign for a new cut of the film.
Fans are calling for the “Snyder Cut”, which is an alternate version of the film by writer and director Zack Snyder, but a new Variety report is throwing cold water on that effort.
A “knowledgeable insider” told the trade, “That’s a pipe dream,” adding, “There’s no way it’s ever happening.”
The report comes after a number of stars of the movie have shown their support, including Gal Gadot who posted a black and white image of herself from the film with the caption “#ReleaseTheSnyderCut”.
Ben Affleck (Batman) didn’t even include a picture with the hashtag just being enough.
Other celebs to support the movement include Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and Jason Momoa (Aquaman).
“I have seen it. I’ve seen the Snyder Cut,” Momoa told MTV News‘ Josh Horowitz. “I think the public needs to see it. I’m obviously indebted to Warner and DC and I don’t know how they feel about it, but as a fan, I’m very, very happy that I got to see it.”
As of now, there is over 300,000 tweets calling for the cut to be released and the topic is trending on Twitter.
Snyder was the original director of the film but had to step down during reshoots due to a family tragedy. Joss Whedon stepped in and the entire tone of the movie ultimately changed by the time the movie was released.
