Last Jedi's Mark Hamill Joins Fight for Snyder Cut, Names Watchmen Favorite Movie

The crusade to convince Warner Bros to release the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League has just gained a prominent ally, one who is strong in the force! That's right, Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, has expressed admiration for deposed DCEU architect Zack Snyder, naming Snyder's earliest DC movie his "favorite watch." Asked the question on Twitter, Hamill was quick to respond:

While Watchmen isn't part of the legendary trilogy that began with Man of Steel and would have ended, if not for the interference of Warner Bros and alleged fake feminist Joss Whedon, with Justice League, it did serve as a spiritual predecessor in terms of tone and style. Of course, as we all know by now, the original cut of Justice League, which contained the vaunted Zack Snyder's Vision in its pure and unaltered form, was thrown out in favor of reshoots by Whedon, producing the underperforming blockbuster that we all avoided seeing in theaters.

Warner Bros has since gone on to release a few deleted scenes showing the promise of the Snyder Cut, but they have fallen short of giving in to increasing fan demand to release the Snyder Cut in its entirety. This, despite petitions, historic marches, websites, and even the power of love all fighting for the chance to see Zack Snyder's Vision restored to its rightful place on a Justice League special edition home video release.

But though fans might be disappointed by the lack of a full Snyder Cut on the current home video release, gaining Mark Hamill as an ally in the fight is something of a consolation. Hopefully, Warner Bros is paying attention and realizes the folly of their ways soon.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it's embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn't that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the "real" news? Don't answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website TheOuthousers.com, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
