So just curious, did anyone find this mysterious 135min cut scheduled for last Aug 23???

I asked at my local Best Buy, they didn't know anything about it.

It seems highly unlikely to me any sort of new cut would be released without any hype from the WB.

Nope. On Amazon, all formats of the movie I can find say 135 minutes (which is obviously incorrect), but we are getting new rereleases in October to promote Aquaman, so I guess there is a chance?

I don't know how much of Snyder's initial workprint was finished. Some sources say 90% (probably not true), but other sources say half finished. My best bet is, if they release anything at all, it'll be cut character moments with little VFX work, or best case scenario, extended fight scenes.

But I don't think they'll release anything ground-breaking, if at all.

^ True.

Also, Whedon stated he had to cut around 30 minutes too.  So if there is new material, it could be Whedon shot stuff.

Interesting thing about the Amazon listing, while the format says 135 minutes, the posted back cover art says 120.

This could be something as simple as an Amazon typo regarding a general re-release.  Or it could be a Machiavellian plot by Warner executives... Bwah ha ha ha!  Tongue

Yeah, that's the oddest part, surely a typo would have been fixed by now. WB, if they're aware of the typo, know how it would look. They want to move on from Snyder, so you'd think they'd correct it.

But honestly, I'd take the Whedon stuff too. Anything is better than nothing.

Hey, if they announced they were releasing extra Captain Boomerang, Katana, and Batman scenes, I'd take them. But nothing else, I've had enough Margot Robbie and Will Smith for a lifetime.

Keep in mind what happened regarding the 2017 Blu-ray re-release of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. Early information gleaned from Sony's Japanese website showed that it supposedly contained an alternate cut of "Spider-Man 3" called "Spider-Man 3.1". Fans hoped that this was a release of the long-anticipated extended cut of the movie that had been shown prior to its theatrical release, but many were skeptical that it was really included on the disc. For months, no new information came out. Sony refused to release much new information regarding what was and wasn't on the new set. 

Information that there was allegedly a version of the movie called "Spider-Man 3: Editor's Cut", which was apparently two minutes shorter than the theatrical cut, came out without any comment by Sony, but with no information about it beyond that. Contacting Sony by email was fruitless, resulting in no new information. Fans anxiously awaited Sony's official announcement about what was included in the set, but that announcement never came. When the Blu-ray set was released in stores, fans finally found out that "Spider-Man 3: Editor's Cut" was indeed real, was included on the set, and did feature some new footage, but was not the long-awaited extended "Spider-Man 3.1" cut.

Now, Warner Brothers is not Sony. But there is precedent for a new cut of a movie being released on Blu-ray and the studio releasing it refusing to release any meaningful information about said new cut.

It's really amazing that Captain Boomerang was one of the only performances that actually worked :/
