Bottom line Warner Bros.’ Justice League can’t catch a break. Read on about fans demanding Zack Snyder Justice League director’s cut…
Despite reports that Justice League is under-performing at the box office, arriving as the lowest domestic debut in the brief history of the DCEU. Some are suggesting that its suffering because of Joss Whedon’s changes and cuts to Snyder’s original cut.
If you put Justice League next to Wonder Woman, then yes, the numbers are low. Justice League has pulled in an estimated $96 million. Though the superhero movie managed to top the weekend, but fell short of the low end of expectations. Wonder Woman hauled in from preview screenings ahead of a $103.2 million, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.
Hardcore DCEU and Zack Snyder fans have launched a change.org petition asking Warner Bros. to restore Snyder’s original 170 min Justice League cut!
So far, the petition has collected over 46,537 signatures. Warner Bros. better listen, because fans are PISSED and they’re the ones that make or break a movie.
Marvel Movies continue to bring it to each and every one of their films. The MCU knows how to keep fans engaged and satisfied with the character developement in their films. The DCEU has yet to figure that out. Instead, WB added more Wonder Woman to the film because the movie was a mega hit, but was that the right choice?
Yes and no, Wonder Woman kept things interesting, but we personally wanted to see more character development of Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash. Those characters seemed to be pushed to the side for Wonder Woman.
DC Movie fan Roberto Mata from San Juan, Puerto Rico launched the petition, condemning changes that were made to the movie’s score and runtime following Snyder’s exit in May
Mata asks, “how will a film that has 6 main characters, their supporting players, a story that revolves around an alien invasion, the terraforming of earth and the return of a familiar face, would fit in a 2hr runtime?”
His Change.org petition explains all the wrongs and missing character development that was apparently cut from Zack Snyder’s original vision of Justice League that had a runtime of 170 minutes. It was originally on IMDB, but since Wheldon took over the movie was cut down to 2 hours, which means that there is 50 minutes missing, like character background and developement that would have made the movie great, but once again Warner Bros. cut the film down when they promised NOT to cut down or touch Zack’s vision. It was said that they beefed up Aquaman and Cyborg, but we didn’t anything more. Instead they were cut and changed from the original vision.
The studio doesn’t seem to get it, there are too many character to be smashed into 2 hours. With the change of director to Joss Whedon who stepped in to finish the project, composer Holkenborg ended up being replaced with Danny Elfman.
The 2,400-word petition declaration explains all the problems with Justice League and more. He holds NOTHING BACK even claiming that they have a huge problem with Danny Elfman’s score. The feel that the former Oingo Boingo lead singers score is “lazy, uninspiring, and unprofessional.”

Batman vs Superman: Rise of the Justice League is better on Blu-Ray/DVD. It sucked at the theater.
