Justice League "Snyder Cut" Coming to HBO Max in 2021

Justice League Wonder Woman Batman Flash Cyborg

A previously unreleased version of 2017 superhero movie Justice League by director Zack Snyder will debut on the HBO Max streaming service in 2021, executives said on Wednesday, in response to a years-long campaign by fans.

Unfortunately, not all of the Justice League's major players have reacted to the announcement. Some CG work might have been needed to finish making the Snyder Cut, though it's unclear if that's what Warner Bros. and HBO Max are referring to when they talk about "hard work and combined efforts". Snyder had to step away from filming Justice League due to a personal tragedy and Joss Whedon stepped in to do reshoots and handle post.

The release includes Snyder expressing gratitude to HBO Max and Warner Brothers "for this fearless gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Snyder and his his wife/producing partner Deborah Snyder are still undecided on whether the project will manifest as a huge "four-hour director's cut" movie or if it will be "split into six "chapters", like a Justice League miniseries.

After it left theaters, fans online started calling on Warner Bros.to release a cut closer to Snyder's vision, and the "Release the Snyder Cut" movement has flared up again and again over last three years. Well, the fans have asked, and we are thrilled to finally deliver.

HBO Max drops on May 27, with Zack Snyder's Justice League coming in 2021. THR is reporting a budget of between $20 and $30 million for this work to be done, which seems like a lot if you don't consider what a win this is for HBO Max's IP power.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and CiarĂ¡n Hinds. Just remember, we all get to have more Justice League now, it's a win-win.
