The Justice League (Snyder Cut) has been debuting on theaters for three years, and most of its fans are undermined by its disjunct plot, forgettable villain, and tonal inconsistency. Fans asked Zack Snyder, who started the project and had to quit and give up influence, for a Director’s Cut long time.
WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar wrote in a recent up-to-date blog post where Kilar listed the Snyder Cut, in a few months, how it is going to release all its movies on HBO Max:
And on the subject of HBO Max, there are so many amazing HBO original series and Max originals I’m excited about. The Tiger Woods HBO documentary arriving in January is incredible. And this little thing called Zack Snyder’s Justice League coming in a few months as well :blush:. Oh, and the return of Succession and the highly-anticipated Friends Reunion. We also have a great new crime drama coming called No Sudden Move from Oscar- and Emmy-winning director Steven Soderbergh. And then there is Mare of Easttown starring Kate Winslet. Plus, the new Gossip Girl, which I think is going to make so many fans go crazy (in a good way). And…ok, I’ll stop there, but I have only scratched the surface in terms of the new releases HBO Max has in store. Maybe I should do another post on the bonkers library of movies and series on HBO Max?
Justice League Snyder Cut release could be March 2021
With that word, it sure sounds like the Justice League will be launched in the early part of 2021. You may not expect it in January or February, but March will sound like a viable timeframe. Looking at Warner Bros’ DC slate, this timeline will make sense. The studio has Wonder Woman 1984 at the end of this month, and the next scheduled movie is The Suicide Squad in August. Certainly, in the meantime, Warner Bros. would want to supply some DC content.
Rumors emerge that the Snyder Cut is a huge success for HBO Max, and that the “Snyder Verse” that will begin with HBO Max streaming service, will contribute to more Zack Snyder flicks. The Justice League 2 and 3, Ben Affleck back as Batman, Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, and more may be part of future ventures.
Justice League Snyder Cut Trailer
After the first trailer was shared in August, Snyder unveiled a second teaser and also announced that the extra scenes for the film were finished.
We can see new footages of Darkseid attacking on the history of the film, as we saw in the black and white trailer set in Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” as in the first film.
Justice League Snyder Cut: Questions
- Is Snyder Cut Coming? Yes, the Justice League Snyder Cut is real and it’s coming to HBO Max in 2021 (expected in March 2021).
- Will the Snyder cut be on Netflix? No, Justice League Snyder Cut is officially coming to HBO Max.
- What is so special about the Snyder cut? Snyder reassembles the film’s postage team to recut, scoring and applying new visual effects to his new album. Any of the original cast will need to register the dialog again. According to the Hollywood reporter, the whole effort would possibly cost $20 to $30 million.
- What is different about Snyder Cut? The “Snyder Cut” was longer, featured a younger version of Darkseid called Uxas instead of Steppenwolf, a fight between Ares and Darkseid, additional footage of the Green Lantern Yalan Gur, and included dialog from several of these characters that had been omitted from the theater release.
- Is Darkseid in Snyder cut? The DC Comics villain was part of Snyder’s overall plans as to how his DCEU story would go, resulting in an epic battle in the Justice League: Part Two, but he never got to see those plans through and Darkseid was entirely absent from the Justice League theater.
- Will There Be Justice League 2? Since the release of the Justice League, DC has changed its strategy, making a team-up film, like Justice League 2, unlikely in the near future.
- Why is Snyder cut so hyped? The release was partially the result of a fan-led movement calling for Warner Bros to give DC fans what they wanted—one backed by many of the movie’s own stars. Snyder’s cut promises a darker sound, a more humorous aesthetic, a revamped villainous dynamic, and potentially considerably less humor.
