Zack Snyder helmed the Man of Steel that laid the foundation for the DCEU. The movie was then followed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. The latter film begins with the result of the fight in Man of Steel, and Snyder would actually like to see a supercut of these two films.

Amidst the coronavirus outbreak, Snyder makes self-quarantine more bearable and enjoyable by doing a live stream viewing party of Batman v Superman on Vero. The director shared his thoughts along the way as well as some other information about the film. At one point, he also mentioned that he wanted to see a five-hour cut of his two films.

"I wonder if anyone's ever done a five-hour cut, which would basically just be editing these two parts of the movie together, carefully," Snyder said. "I've never seen that. I'm sure it exists online somewhere, where they match up all of these moments so that they're happening simultaneously."

The director says he isn't sure if someone has already done that, so he'd have to look. That said, Snyder thinks it's "a cool thing to do" because the cut would "match up pretty well." "Because they're right below -- they're fighting right below," he said. It could be kind of cool."

It seems like the supercut wouldn't have to require the majority of the movie to be touched, but editing the shots from the films would have to be meticulously done to make it look seamless. This is only one of the alternate cuts that fans would like to see from Snyder's movies and it would be an interesting experiment as well as a way to be occupied during the quarantine if you'd like to give it a try.
