Justice League fan-art features the team contemplating about what to do about the Snyder Cut. Named after the film's original director, Zack Snyder, the supposed cut only includes footage that the filmmaker directed before he stepped down from the project and was replaced by Joss Whedon, who reportedly extensively reshot the film.
Calls for the release of the Snyder Cut started immediately after Justice League's release back in November. The online petition which quickly garnered attention from fans demands that Warner Bros. release the original cut of the movie with Junkie XL's (the original composer before Danny Elfman stepped in) intended musical score. Unfortunately, over the course of the last few months, its existence and the chances of it seeing the light of day have increasingly become a sore topic, especially after fans of Snyder denounced the original creator of the campaign last month.
The artwork comes courtesy of digital artist Jean Sinclair, and features Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman all huddled up looking at what looks like a hard drive that's clearly labeled "Snyder Cut." The illustration looks amazing, but what makes the fan-art more interesting is the conversation among the heroes with regard to the item in front of them. While Bruce seems to insinuate that they need to release it, Clark contemplates on it as Diana points out that "people are begging for this." A less enthused Arthur, on the other hand, doesn't appear to care whatever his teammates decide to do with it. The artist provided Screen Rant with an HD version of the aforementioned illustration which you can check out below:
Noticeably, The Flash and Cyborg weren't included in the artwork - an interesting thing considering that they are probably the most suitable to tackle this situation. Cyborg would've easily checked what's in the mysterious Snyder Cut given his technological capabilities. Once they realize what's inside (and how much commotion it has caused the last few months), Barry can quickly release it before any other team member have second thoughts about it.
On a serious note, Justice League's Snyder Cut and its supposed existence has been a sore topic for DC fans, specifically loyal Zack Snyder followers. So it's nice to see an artwork like this one put a humorous spin to the topic (without being disrespectful) and lighten things up even just for a bit. While it obviously won't further the ongoing campaign to release the much-clamored footage, people can take a step back, look at such a fun fan-art and not be constantly riled up online.
