Superman comic book writer Jerry Ordway recently revealed that he wants to see Warner Bros. release the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League.
Late last month, a creative fan released a video imagining what the opening credits to Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League would have looked like with a similar style to those of 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The video prompted Jerry Ordway, who wrote Superman titles from 1986 to 1993 and inked the game-changing Crisis on Infinite Earths for DC Comics, to express his desire to see Warner Bros. release the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League on Blu-Ray.
In a post on his Twitter account, Jerry Ordway questioned whether or not Warner Bros. had anything to lose by releasing the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League to the public. The revered comic book artist and writer also likened the Snyder Cut situation to the Richard Donner cut of Superman II starring Christopher Reeve.

That’s powerful! I sure would like to see a Blu-ray of this cut of the film. What does @WBHomeEnt got to lose? I certainly appreciate the re-creation of Richard Donner’s Superman 2, so why not Zach Snyder’s Justice League?

For those who are unaware, Superman and its sequel were shot simultaneously with Richard Donner as the director of both projects. However, with 75% of Superman II already complete, producers opted to cease filming the sequel in order to focus on the first film. Donner was later removed from Superman II and replaced by Richard Lester, who significantly retooled the superhero film and reshot most material in order to be credited as director. In 2006, the Richard Donner cut of Superman II was released using lost footage originally shot by Donner, deleted scenes, and screen test material.
Here is the official synopsis for Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Zack Snyder and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
