Aquaman actor Jason Momoa has revealed that he has seen the Zack Snyder cut of the Justice League movie. While he initially tried out for the role of Batman – a gig that eventually landed in Ben Affleck’s lap – the American actor still boarded the DC Universe when Snyder decided to cast him as Arthur Curry instead. Because of this, Momoa has always said that he’s indebted to the director. So although Snyder is no longer a part of the Warner Bros. superhero franchise, the two remain friends, as evidenced by a new social media post.
Last night, Jason Momoa took to Instagram to share a video featuring himself and Justice League director Zack Snyder. In it, Jason Momoa thanks Zack Snyder for casting him as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a role that earned him his first billion-dollar blockbuster. The Aquaman actor then gifts Snyder a Leica Q2.
In the description of the post, Jason Momoa mentions that Zack Snyder allowed him to watch his cut of Justice League, describing it as “ssssiiicccckkkkkk.”
Based on Momoa’s recent social media upload, it appears that Snyder has a copy of the Snyder Cut. And although he wants to heed to fan demands about its release, he’s unable to considering that its technically Warner Bros. property. While the actor didn’t give pertinent details about said iteration of Justice League, the fact that he was able to view it means that it might be suitable for public release – just as long as expectations are set with regard to what’s in it. And since it doesn’t seem likely that the movement for the roll-out of the Snyder Cut will die anytime soon, perhaps it’s best just to give people what they want.
