Aquaman Jason Momoa star could not hold back when asked about Zack Snyder's cut Justice League, making it clear that he really wants to see him released. After the theatrical performance below the expected Justice League, The DCEU clearly needed a break, and that's exactly what happened. By the time Aquaman in the US, more than a year has passed since the Justice League united six of DC's most famous heroes on the big screen for the first time.
While it is odd to consider a film that has grossed $ 657 million worldwide a failure, it is necessary to consider the fact that, due to much of the Justice League being re-filmed by replacement director Joss Whedon after Snyder's departure from the project, the DCEU's attempt to combine The Avengers ended up costing much more than the other entries in the franchise. Combine this with the dubious distinction of being the lowest-grossing DCEU film, and Justice League Flop status becomes undeniable no matter how many individual viewers might like it. There's no real excuse for a movie starring "holy trinity" from Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from DC not to exceed Suicide squad at the box office.

For months, many DC fans have been waging a crusade with one goal: to convince Warner Bros. and DC Films releasing the original cut of Zack Snyder. Justice League. Although it is unclear if there is a complete view of Snyder's vision, the filmmaker did nothing but add fuel to the fire, regularly releasing material from his cut that did not make the theatrical version, and until recently recognized the Snyder Cut movement. directly for the first time. Now when asked about the Snyder Cut by MTV News during an interview promoting Aquaman, Momoa added her voice to the chorus. The actor first recognized how studio politics usually forbade people in their position to talk about these things, and then did just that, enthusiastically expressing their desire to see Snyder Cut, complete with the launch of a bomb. Check out the tenderly sincere moment below.
Another factor in Momoa being so outspoken is probably his known respect and admiration for Snyder, who personally cast the actor as Aquaman, and helped develop the character's DCEU identity. Momoa addressed some of the differences between Aquaman's story in Snyder's cut and Whedon's cut before, and although he never disrespected Whedon or insulted the theatrical cut, he never tried to hide the fact that he preferred Snyder's vision to the project as a whole and Arthur Curry in particular. Here's hoping fans will eventually see Aquaman Justice League trip for you.
