Last week at an event promoting the directors’ cuts of all of Zack Snyder’s movies save one very important one, we learned about Snyder’s thoughts on superheroes killing, specifically that people who don’t think superheroes kill and commit atrocities should “wake the f**k up.” It’s a sentiment with which it’s veritably impossible for any sane, rational person to disagree. And yet, here we are, in 2019, and the Snyder Cut of Justice League, the holy grail of all director’s cuts, remains locked inside Warner Bros’ vaults, depriving the world of a Justice League which truly and purely executes Zack Snyder’s Vision.
Some have argued that the Snyder Cut can’t be released because it doesn’t exist, but at that same event where Snyder issued a wake-up call to lily-livered panty-waists who think wanton murder is beneath their precious superheroes, Zack Snyder himself has finally confirmed that the Snyder does, in fact, exist. Multiple Snyder Cuts, in fact. Straight from the horse’s mouth:
It's done. It's up to them.

Snyder Cut friendly clickbait entertainment site ScreenRant performed the heroic act of transcribing the murky audio, revealing Snyder’s True Words:
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.].
So there you have it. The site also reports that the inclusion of the number 214 on promotional materials for the event reveals the length of the Snyder Cut to be 214 minutes, or nearly three and a half hours!
This will be music to the ears of Snyderbronies, the colloquial term for hardcore fans of Snyder and his Vision. They’ve been campaigning for the release of the cut ever since the theatrical version of Justice League, which had all its badass Superman scenes edited out by alleged fake feminist Joss Whedon, flopped at the box office. But though Snyderbronies had faith that the cut existed, this is the first time Snyder himself has directly confirmed it in no uncertain terms. Now, as Snyder says, the ball lies in Warner Bros’ court to do the right thing and release the cut in theaters so it can make a billion dollars and restore the lost honor and glory of the DCEU.
