Asked about his thoughts on director Zack Snyder’s original vision for the movie, Momoa admitted in an interview with MTV News that he was “obsessed with it too." He went on to say that it “sucks” that he can’t speak his mind openly, before stating “fuck yeah” he’d like to see the "Snyder Cut."

This was not the first time the actor has lamented changes made to the film after Snyder’s exit.
Snyder exited Justice League in May of last year, following a family tragedy. Joss Whedon stepped into complete the film, overseeing extensive reshoots that some argue fundamentally changed the film. That turmoil, along with a critically-panned finished film and numerous behind-the-scenes photos shared by Snyder, have resulted in a large number of fans lobbying for the release of a “Snyder Cut” of the movie.
Warner Bros., however, has stated that they have no interest in releasing an alternate version of the film.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus and Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna. The film opens December 21.
