DC Fans Launch Petition for Release of Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ Director’s Cut

Hardcore DC movie fans have launched a change.org petition asking Warner Bros. to restore director Zack Snyder’s original “Justice League” cut, together with Tom Holkenborg’s (Junkie XL) score on home release.

As of this writing, the petition has collected over 19,000 signatures.

DC Movie fan Roberto Mata from San Juan, Puerto Rico launched the petition, condemning changes that were made to the film’s score and run-time following Snyder’s exit in May when his daughter died. Joss Whedon stepped in to finish the film, and composer Holkenborg was replaced with Danny Elfman.

“All in all, the score is generic, out of place, too whimsical and a rehash of many other scores,” Mata wrote.

The film’s run-time also concerned petitioners. “In early October cinemas confirmed that the runtime [sic] for Justice League will be 2hrs long, much to the shock of fans, who were asking themselves: ‘how will a film that has 6 main characters, their supporting players, a story that revolves around an alien invasion, the terraforming [sic] of earth and the return of a familiar face, would fit in a 2hr runtime [sic]?’” Mata asked.

The petition’s mission statement — which is over 2,400 words —  can be read in its entirety by clicking here.

“Justice League” is currently playing in theaters.

‘Deadpool’ Composer Opts Out of Sequel After Director Tim Miller Exits

The drama on the “Deadpool” sequel continues, with composer Tom Holkenborg now following in the footsteps of director Tim Miller and leaving the Ryan Reynolds superhero franchise.

“Since it was revealed that Deadpool’s brilliant creative director Tim Miller will not be involved in the project anymore, I have undertaken some soul searching,” the composer shared on his Facebook page Thursday. “Tim was the driving force behind Deadpool and me getting involved in this amazing project. Deadpool without Tim at the helm just does not sit right with me and that is why I have decided not to be involved in the second chapter.”

Fox did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s requests for comment.

Miller left the project in October, citing “creative differences” with Reynolds, though sources told TheWrap that’s in part because when Reynolds’ agents renegotiated his deal, along with a massive amount of money, the star got casting approval and other creative controls. That whole process took more time than Miller (and fans) would have liked, and it shined a spotlight on differences in vision between the two key players.

Miller, who owns a visual effects studio and did much of the polishing work on the original “Deadpool” for free, wanted more of a stylized sequel, while the actor placed his focus more on the raunchy comedy style that earned the first movie its R rating.

It was a difficult decision, as I love the project so much and I know how eagerly the next installment will be anticipated, it’s hard to walk away from something so unique, but it also has to feel right,” Holkenborg also said.

“Deadpool 2” is currently eyeing “John Wick” co-director David Leitch to replace Miller.

Leitch is best known for his stunt work, but turned in an impressive directorial debut with the 2014 Keanu Reeves action film, which he co-directed with Chad Stahelski. Leitch recently left “John Wick 2” in order to prep the Charlize Theron spy film “The Coldest City.”
