WB really did a number on Snyder when it came to Justice League... which is a story for a different time, but if you didn't know... there is a Snyder Cut that is over 3 hours long, with finished visual effects, score, a totally different storyline, new characters and actors, and so much more. Aquaman himself has confirmed this not once, but now twice. Check out the interview below:
I've got the video at 12:40 which is when the discussion about the Snyder Cut of Justice League begins, but the entire video covers a bunch of stuff. It starts off about the meaning of guitars on Momoa's life, growing up in Hawaii, working on Baywatch, Game of Thrones, his new show See, who he would play in Star Wars, Aquaman (of course), and then the big one -- the Snyder Cut of Justice League.
A year ago, MTV News's Josh Horowitz interviewed Jason Momoa for Aquaman -- throwing in a Snyder Cut of Justice League question. Momoa answered: "I'm obsessed with (the idea of the Snyder cut) too, yeah. I mean, that's one thing that sucks in our business where you can't speak your mind. Yeah! Fuck yeah, I want to see it".
In a new interview, Horowitz brings up the original conversation about Momoa gushing about the Snyder Cut of Justice League. But then something strange happens, Momoa just casually drops:
"I've seen the Snyder Cut".
Josh Horowitz is thrown back... replying with "so, what does that mean... cos the effects aren't done, like, you've seen his assemblage of footage and alternate takes, etc".
Momoa's face when questioned about the effects not being done.
Horowitz's face when he realizes the Snyder Cut is in much more finished form than anyone knows right now.
Momoa: "oh, so you think Zack couldn't finish it, you don't think he -- I mean listen man, next question".
Horowitz snapped back saying "do you think we'll ever see it (the Snyder Cut of Justice League)".
Momoa sits there for a few seconds thinking, then the One True King responds: "I think the public needs to see it, ya know, I'm obviously indebted to Warners and DC and you know, I don't know how they feel about it. But as a fan, I'm very, very happy that I got to see it".
This is the face of a man who has seen the Snyder Cut of Justice League, and is "very, very happy" he got to see it. I'd post my face of jealousy, but no one needs to see me all puffy-eyed because I'm crying from tears of joy and sadness both at the same time.
Horowitz had one final question regarding the Snyder Cut of Justice League, adding: "Does it feel like a totally different movie than the Justice League that was released?"
Momoa quickly, and confidently replies "Yep, yep".
I'm one of the biggest supporters of Snyder's original vision for the DCEU you'll ever meet, having seen Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice many, many times (each) in cinema -- and I pledge I will support the hell out of whatever Warner Bros. and DC need to do, to get the Snyder Cut of Justice League in front of my eyeballs.
HBO Max exclusive? I hope.
