DC-loving Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia has been a vocal component of the Snyder Cut of Justice League, a mythical version of the beleaguered film which embodies Zack Snyder's Vision. Snyder, the original director of Justice League and architect of the DCEU, left the movie before filming was done due a personal tragedy and was replaced by alleged fake feminist Joss Whedon, who executed Warner Bros' directive to remove all traces of Snyder's vision from the movie and replace them with scenes of Cyborg saying "booyah."
Recent rumors circling the bowl of entertainment news sites now claim that Snyder was actually "fired" from the DCEU months before he left, as a result of a rough cut of Justice League being dubbed "unwatchable" by studio execs. But clearly those execs simply didn't understand what they had on their hands. Sure, the rough cut may have been unwatchable, but that's only because Zack Snyder's vision was so pure and strong, like uncut Peruvian cocaine, and attempting to watch it directly could burn out one's retinas unless viewed through a pinhole in a cereal box or using special eclipse glasses.
Even still, there can be little doubt that the Warner Bros/Joss Whedon cut of Justice League failed to capture the hearts of moviegoers, as the movie ultimately underperformed and probably didn't even make a profit. Now, with the home video release of Justice League on the horizon, two separate deleted Superman scenes from the Snyder Cut have made their way onto versions of the release, and Mayor Robert Garcia has finally gotten a chance to see them. Here's what he had to say.
A damn shame indeed. But it isn't too late. Like Superman, the Snyder Cut could rise once more if only Warner Bros would agree to release it. We're still waiting.
