Zack Snyder's most fervent supporters have lobbied Warner Bros. for months to release a "Snyder Cut" of Justice League, but Superman actor Henry Cavill said he doesn't believe it should happen.
"I don't know if [a Snyder Cut] actually exists," he told Yahoo! Movies while promoting Mission: Impossible -- Fallout, "so the only way I can look at it is as a business model, and I don't know what difference it's going to make."
Following Snyder's departure from Justice League in the wake of a family tragedy, Joss Whedon stepped in to oversee extensive reshoots, which required less-than-stellar CGI to conceal the mustache Cavill had grown for Fallout. What became referred to as "MustacheGate" was mocked on a few occasions by Cavill and the film's cast.
While the ultimate edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice topped home release sales charts, Cavill said he believes a Snyder Cut of Justice League wouldn't be profitable for Warner Bros.
"I think it might be entertaining, for sure, and go, 'Oh look, now I've scratched that itch,' but it's not going to change anything that I can think of, it's not going to make huge amounts of money all of a sudden for a studio," he said. Cavill furthered his point by adding, "They're not going to release it into cinemas and so they're not going to suddenly make a few hundred million."
Based on Justice League's trailers and some of its more obvious reshoots, it's clear the theatrical cut made significant changes to what turned out to by Snyder's final DCEU film. Cavill agrees with Snyder fans that "it would be interesting to see what the difference is," but thinks it would be best to "focus on the future rather than what's been."
As for Cavill's Superman, there's no official word on Man of Steel 2, but it's long been rumored the Last Son of Krypton will make an appearance in Shazam!.
