Justice League dropped this past week, and while fans are split on the movie, one thing is clear. A lot of the film was cut due to Warner Brothers making a mandate stating that the movie had to be under 2 hours. As of the time of this article, there is no word on if we will get a director’s cut of the movie. Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa had some things to say about all the scene that were cut from the film. Momoa goes on to say:
“The challenging part is [the Justice League story] is only about a weekend in Author Curry’s life,” he says. “[Fans] might be like, ‘Why is he that grumpy? Why’s he hiding up there?’ We had it all planned out. A lot of things got cut. But it’s not my movie. It’s a huge movie introducing three new characters, and for myself and The Flash and Cyborg, there was a lot that was there we just couldn’t get in. It could have been two movies. We had some stuff with William Dafoe. The whole Atlantean part, about me being this reluctant king. There was no need for it because you’re going to see it in Aquaman. It’s not an Aquaman movie; it’s a Justice League movie.”
While this leaves a lot of room to speculate, it is clear that critical developmental points for each of the characters went missing during all the scenes that they had to cut. Hopefully, we can get directors cut with all the scenes so we can compare and contrast both realize to see which one was better. Let us know what you think about Justice League! For all things geek, you are in the right place.
