Since the release of Justice League last November, the internet has been at constant odds over the existence of the Synder Cut. Whether it exists or not, you can count one star as being in the corner of his director as to the quality of his cut over the theatrical release of the film. Aquaman star Jason Momoa has reportedly revealed that he prefers Zack Snyder’s original take on Justice League.
A fan on Reddit claims that during a photo-op at a recent convention, Momoa told him that Snyder’s version of the film was superior:
Director Zack Snyder was let go during the production of Justice League which led to Joss Whedon being brought in to finish the movie. The final product can only be described as a Frankenstein’s monster version of the film. The end result led fans to call for Snyder’s version of the film to be released, much like the Batman V Superman Ultimate Edition was. The only issue is that there is no concrete evidence that the Snyder Cut actually exists.
This reported statement by Momoa is one that could be taken out of context. In no way is Momoa confirming that a physical copy of the Snyder Cut exists but is stating his opinion on which of the two different versions he prefers. So don’t expect Momoa to join the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement anytime soon.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
