An online petition has been launched calling for Warner Bros. to release a Joss Whedon cut of Justice League.
The petition, which is aiming for just 100 signatures, appears to be a tongue-in-cheek response to the one started that asked for a release of Snyder's full cut. It was started by a user called Thomas Martha (an amalgamation of the names of Bruce Wayne's parents), who apparently hails from Atlantis, Florida, clearly poking fun at Aquaman's home.
It begs for a cut with more humor and Whedon's overall style of superhero storytelling, though that's near-impossible given that he only came in for post-production and reshoots, accounting for 15-20 percent of the final product. The movie continues to draw polarized opinions, with Snyder supporters countering that Whedon's campy style strayed too far from what the DCEU did initially through its dark, gritty narrative.
While the film is underperforming in terms of critical and box office reception, its lighter tone has been pointed to as a potential turning point for the studio. Many fans believe the film's tonal shift is due to Whedon coming on board to finish the film after Zack Snyder stepped away, leaning into the direction Patty Jenkins' highly-praised Wonder Woman took.
Now in theaters, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
