On May 20, 2020; Warner Bros. announced that they will finally be releasing Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League on their exclusive new streaming service: HBO Max, scheduled for launch on May 27, 2020. No exact release date is specified, and Warner Bros. haven’t clarified as to whether it will be a full 4-hour movie or a 6-part miniseries. Warner Bros. has also added that the whole project could cost up to $20 million to complete. However, the fact that it will be coming next year is already a major step forward that will be eagerly awaited by fans. And most likely: by Zack Snyder himself. We also could have had a much darker version of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, that you can read about right here.
Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League has been long in demand by both fans and cast members. This long-awaited cut of the 2017 DC superhero movie has been demanded under #ReleaseTheSnyderCut for the past three years, after Snyder dropped from the film to deal with a personal tragedy and left the rest to Joss Whedon. Warner Bros. now fulfills that promise by offering a release date of 2021. Warner Bros. has even gone on record by saying:
“Thanks to the efforts of a lot people, we’re excited to bring fans this highly anticipated version of Justice League. This feels like the right time to share Zack’s story, and HBO Max is the perfect platform for it. We’re glad the creative planets aligned, allowing us to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.“Warner Bros. Chairman Toby Emmerich
The Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, almost certainly darker and more somber than what we got back in 2017, has been awaited by fans for so long, and now that news is out of its impending 2021 release, I’d say “uproar” would be putting the reaction mildly. Stay tuned for more details of this project.
