While DC actors like Jason Momoa have claimed to have seen the rumored “Snyder Cut” of 2017’s Justice League, one actor has not. Henry Cavill played Superman in three DC films and was at the center of the criticism about the film. I.E. the horrible anti-mustache CGI. His former co-stars, like Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot; voiced their support for the #ReleasetheSnydercut movement, but Cavill did not weigh in at the time. Instead, he expressed doubts about the whole thing:
“I have not seen any Snyder Cut, I don’t know if there’s anything that exists that is a Snyder Cut. I’m sure there’s footage out there which has probably been pieced together over the years. I’m always interested to see how that stuff turns out but that is very much a chapter of my past, I would rather talk about what is going to happen in the future. The future of Superman, how I can express that character from the comic books, which ties in nicely to Man of Steel. Man of Steel, I really like that movie, and I’d like to be able to tell the story where it was left at that point.”
This is no different than comments that’s he’s made before:
“I don’t know if [a Snyder cut] actually exists so the only way I can look at it is as a business model, and I don’t know what difference it’s going to make,” the actor previously said. “There are stories to be told, which need to be told and adjustments that can be made, but that’s not going to make any difference.”
I’ve seen a lot of people hating on Henry for his comments here and I don’t get the hate. He still wants to play Superman, obviously things are being talked about behind the scenes so why shit on him for not saying more about stuff out of his control? pic.twitter.com/eD5mjZj6tI

Former director Zack Snyder keeps stoking the fire and releasing little crumbs of his discontinued plans for the DCEU. What do you think about Cavill’s comments about the “Snyder cut”?
