There's an uncut version of 'Justice League' by Zack Snyder and fans are demanding Warner Bros. to release it.

Back in 2017, during the filming of 'Justice League', director Zach Snyder had to step down from the film due to a family tragedy. Snyder had received the news that his daughter, Autumn, had committed suicide, but the news of her death was kept private. Despite Snyder wanting to return to filming, he ultimately made the decision to step away from the film to deal with his loss.

Joss Whedon, know for directing Marvels 'Avengers' films, stepped in to take the role of Snyder. Some fans were surmised that Whedon agreed to step in for Snyder.

"He was already working with us on some of the scenes for that additional photography that we're going to be doing shortly. It was fortunate that Zack convinced him, and he agreed to step in and finish the movie -- to help Zack finish his vision. We're excited about that," said DCEU producer Charles Roven during the 'Wonder Women' premiere.

When the film was released, fans could tell it was Whedon's direction and they weren't;t happy with the end result. It was later released that Whedon had rearranged and cut pieces of Snyder's original storyline scenes to fit his vision. Warner Bros. also wanted the film to be lighter and have more comical scenes in the film. This caused many rewrites and scene changes. It was also known that Whedon was in charge of cutting down the films run time of 120 minutes.

Even before it was known if Snyder's cut of the film existed before his departure, fans were already rallying to have it released.

The demand still goes on as Snyder admitted at his recent Director's Cut Fundraiser that his cut of the film really does exist. A fan recorded the video with Snyder saying "all I can say is... sure there's a cut... it's done. I have a cut. I have a bunch of them. So, it's not like... that's up to them [Warner Bros.]."

Snyder also signed the fans poster with the number '214'. Fans of the film who followed the buzz of 'Snyder Cut' would know that his version of the film runs for 214 minutes. It's almost twice as long as the original film.

The hashtag #releasethesnydercut started trending on Twitter with fans demanding Warner Bros. to release it. 'Justice League' actors took to Twitter to show their support and desire to have 'Snyder Cut' released.

Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Women and Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher tweeted the tending hashtag. Batman himself, Ben Affleck also joined by tweeting the hashtag, but forgot to add a photo of him in character.

With fans demanding the cut since the films release in 2018 and now its main actors supporting the movement, Warner Bros. has to make the final decision.
