Jerry Ordway Calls for Blu-ray Release of Snyder Cut of “Justice League”

Long-time Superman comic book artist Jerry Ordway has reacted to the release of a fan-made opening to the “Justice League” movie, calling for Warner Bros. Entertainment to release the infamous “Snyder Cut” of the film to be released on Blu-ray.

Posted by the DCU Movie Page YouTube channel, the 3 minute, 46 second video is a fan’s reimagining of the opening scene of “Justice League”, using some footage never included in the theatrical cut of the film.

As you’ll recall, director Zack Snyder was forced to stand down before completing the film, due to the untimely death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in to finish off the film, reshooting many scenes and making a number of changes to the script. Knowing Snyder’s version would have been much different to what we saw, the “Release the Snyder Cut” movement has gained support from various quarters, with Ordway adding his own voice to the cause via Twitter.

“I sure would like to see a Blu-ray of this cut of the film. What does [Warner Bros. Entertainment have] to lose? I certainly appreciate the re-creation of Richard Donner’s Superman 2, so why not Zach Snyder’s Justice League?”

“I’ve always supported the idea, since it was revealed Snyder had a rough cut with a score,” he continued via Twitter. “What is there to lose, now that the execs in charge have changed? AT&T wants to make money, so let [Warner Archive] release it!”

I just watched the Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks on my tv and during the fireworks, they played the John Williams Superman theme. It was SUPER!!!

Ugh. Eye rooooooolllllll… I just want to move on. Again, Snyder had 2 movies to get Superman right and he didnt. Some new version of JL isn’t going to change that. If we want to see a true Superman, then WB/DC needs to step up and hire a QUALITY and PROVEN writer and director who actually cares and understands the character, can talk Henry back into the role and quits reacting to the vocal minority of people who think Superman isn’t cool. Marvel did a better Superman arc with captain America in the last 8 years than DC. CHANGE.MY.MIND. I… Read more »

sundevil82…I’m sorry but I can’t agree with you on this. Aside from a couple of questionable scenes in MOS, I thought Zack’s Superman was updated in a very good way. And for the record I never though BvS was as unobjectionable as some have voiced. As for the JL…..I can watch what we got BUT it’s so out of context from Zack’s first two that I find that probably more distracting than anything else. The movie was so manipulated from what Zack version apparently was that for me, at this point, I would look massively forward to seeing his version… Read more »

I’ve made my thoughts quite clear on this. I didn’t hate MOS, I thought it was flawed but a solid foundation, but they moved Superman’s character in the wrong direction to accommodate Batman in bvs. I don’t think they did Henry any favors either in the last two movies and I don’t blame him for finding other projects to be a part of. WB/DC is, as Zod would say ‘a pack of fools.’ I also just read that they turned away Christopher McQuarries (an awesome and quality writer/director) pitches for both MOS and Green LAntern. He had this to say… Read more »

Well CM’s ideas were some time ago now. As for “fixing broken ones”,..that sounds like his definition not the WB”s. So moving on from that time I don’t think means anything.

As for ZS’ers cut of JL, I totally expect it to be in the same comparable context as the first two. But I’d still see it(buy it) just to see the difference in how Superman was handled without all the mustache fiasco and re-shoots.

At this point IF they were to green light another, then it would only make sense that someone else be at the helm.

Hey if they release it, of course I’ll watch it, but realistically it’s not going to happen. For me Snyder was taking too long to get Superman to wherever he was supposed to go… the problem with multiple movie story arcs is exactly what happened here… you have an incomplete story. His arc should have taken at most 2 films. I rarely feel connected to characters in Snyder’s films and that includes his entire filmography. I love watchmen and I felt so disconnected from those characters. Visually stunning, but characters left me cold. Same thing with Superman. When he died… Read more »

I agree with you regarding the death. The fact that we didn’t get a direct sequel didn’t give us much SUPERMAN to look forward to. And I for one certainly didn’t dislike BvS the way some have, but when I left the theater I was not in a good mood. But I was not in a good mood after the JL as well. They blew through his revival and I thought it was done in a cold manor. I would be happy as hell if ZS’ers version corrected that and we got to see what should have been and not… Read more »

Yes please, sign me in. I need the Snyder Cut to see what the original director had prepared for us.
