Another person involved in the production of Warner Bros' 2017 Justice League movie has thrown their weight behind the release of a cut of Zack Snyder's version of the film: production designer Patrick Tatopoulos.
The screenshot, which was posted on Reddit, sees Tatopoulos encouraging someone to "Keep fighting for [the Snyder Cut]," adding, "We all would love to see it." Although the context of the post isn't entirely clear, the message does appear to come from Tatopoulos' real Instagram account.
After an infamously troubled production process, Snyder left Justice League after a family tragedy. Director Joss Whedon was reportedly called in to complete reshoots that gave the film a lighter tone, and rumors of a Snyder cut of the film quickly began gaining traction online. Several people involved with the production, including Snyder himself, have also publicly discussed the Snyder cut, which is supposedly more in line with the director's original vision for the film.
Justice League ultimately earned disappointing box office totals and was met with mixed critical reviews. Snyder's aborted sequel to the film, Justice League 2, was originally supposed to release this year.
Next up for the DC Extended Universe is Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), slated for release Feb. 7, 2020; Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984, coming June 5 2020; James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, which arrives August 6, 2021; and Matt Reeves' solo Batman film, which will swing into theaters June 25, 2021.
