The legendary Snyder Cut, which brings back to the screen the
original vision original director to the Justice League movie is coming soon to the smaller screen. As genre fans are aware, Zack Snyder had to leave the Justice League movie during post-production, with Josh Whedon taking his place for the 2017 release of the film. For a while, the Snyder Cut version of the film remained a myth, but Warner Bros. eventually poured some dough into making it a reality. The Snyder Cut was originally going to be in multiple parts (much like Justice League was supposed to be a two-parter), but then was changed to be a single four-hour movie to be streamed on HBO Max (just like every other DC movie in 2021).
The question left then, is when? Well, today we’ve got confirmation of when: March 18.
In case you forgot, here is the description of the film:
In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.
Along with the announcement, Snyder released three teaser posters for the film (with the release date stamped on them, of course mostly in black and white):
Zack Snyder’s Justice League will stream on HBO Max on March 18, 2021.
You can then watch Godzilla vs. Kong less than two weeks later… if they don’t change that release date again.
