It’s been over two years since the release of Justice League, but time has not dissipated fans’ belief that there is a Snyder Cut of the movie somewhere. A version of the movie that is original director Zack Snyder’s full vision and true sequel to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Up until now, that was thought to only have been a far-fetched idea, but Snyder just threw gasoline on the idea by confirming it does exist.
In a post on the social site Vero, Snyder posted an image of a reel for Justice League: Director’s Cut. The image is overlaid with the text: “Is it real? Does it exist? Of course it does.”
This is Snyder’s strongest confirmation that the Snyder Cut does exist. It will, undoubtedly, fuel fans’ fervor in seeking the release of this version of the movie. However, the details don’t stop there. The reels also comes with a running time. The Snyder Cut apparently comes in at 214 minutes long, or three hours and 34 minutes. And you thought The Irishman was long.
The run time shouldn’t be surprising. Snyder has a propensity for longer movies. Watchmen and Batman v. Superman were particularly long each running over 150 minutes. Throw in the liberties he took since it is the Director’s Cut, and you should count yourselves lucky it’s not four hours long.
It still doesn’t look likely that Warner Bros. will release the Snyder Cut to the public. That being said, given Snyder is being open about its existence, things could be changing behind the scenes.
