Always thought Daredevil was underrated but the director's cut puts it into the just plain good category.Not Snyder's work, but the director's cut of the Affleck Daredevil film was also better.
I guess what makes me pessimistic about this is that, to me, the problems with the Justice League film go beyond plot or pacing. The problems with Snyder's vision of the DC universe are too deep to fix by changing or adding scenes.
They cut Peeves from the first Harry Potter film. Rik Mayall played him and IIRC they'd shot all his scenes.... how the fuck do you cut an entire CHARACTER from your movie, just like that? He must have appeared in action set pieces with the other Justice League members, right?
These people hate people power. You're supposed to consume what the powers that be give you and you're supposed to like it.Vulture is banging the same drum:
In fact, a lot of Twitter NPCs are repeating the exact same rhetoric used by those articles:

Really makes you think doesn’t it...
If I may take off my tinfoil hat for a second, it really baffles me why these people are dead set against this happening. I’m not really a Zack Snyder fan (other than 300), but I’m not going to shit on those who are just because they want to see what he originally envisioned for the movie brought to fruition. So I don’t think it’s purely motivated by a dislike of Snyder.
In addition, how is this different than any other director’s cut getting released. If you really want to blame someone for setting a “dangerous precedent”, blame the people who clamored for the director’s cuts of films like Blade Runner and Superman II. Hell, I’d go as far as to say that the latter was a proto-Snyder cut in the sense that it’s also a case of a director getting to finally truly realize his vision of a DC property after creative differences with the studio forced him off the project initially.
I also don’t get why these people’d lump the #ReleasetheSnydercut movement in with fucking GloomerGoot, Trump, and Brexit of all things.
EDIT: Screenrant’s jumping in the bandwagon too:
