There has been a lot of talk of the Zack Snyder cut of the disastrous Justice League. Many people who were involved in the project have stated that there is not enough footage or progress for the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. However, there are reports that the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League is a lot more complete than may be realized. After all, there was news for reshoots. At the same time, Zack Snyder has taken time off of the editing process which suggests that every bit of footage needed for a complete film has been shot.
Joss Wheden has added tons of shots and the studio has cut tons of the shots that have been featured in trailers. While it is common for trailers to have at least one shot not end up in the final film, it is actually negligible in cases. They tend to be different takes of a similar scene. Sometimes, the same scene is shown in the film, but edited in a different way. However, the trailers for Justice League show a much different film given that there have been tons of scenes in the trailer that have not wound up in the final film.
This isn’t the first time that the DC movies have been chopped up to the point of being a mess. Batman V Superman is known for having a choppy release. However, a director’s cut has been released with more scenes and edited in a way that makes the film a lot better. Suicide Squad did not fare as well. While there has been roomers of deleted scenes and more than 5 different versions of the film, the only version other than the theatrical version that has been released is just a slightly extended version of the theatrical version.
