¡Finally, it is official! We will see Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ cut in 2021 on the new streaming service HBO Max. This was announced by Henry Cavill and Snyder himself in a live on the Vero social network. The movie version we saw in 2017 ended up being directed by Joss Whedon, who had to replace Snyder after his resignation, allegedly related to the tragic suicide of his daughter in March of that year.
“I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized,” Snyder said. “Also a special thank you to all of those involved in the #SnyderCut movement for making this a reality.”
For a while now, fans around the world have been pushing Warner Bros. Pictures to release the Snyder’s cut, including Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and Ben Affleck (Batman) joining the movement.
Snyder was feeding the Internet with unreleased footage from his version of the film, including an image of Alfred working in an abandoned Wayne’s aerospace hangar.
The director also revealed an image of the character Ryan Choi (Atom), a stake that was removed in Whedon’s final cut.
Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ cut could make it to HBO Max as a four-hour movie or six-episode series, according to the Hollywood Reporter. This new version of the film could include new footage and special effects, using the original post-production resources, generating production costs around 20 to 30 million dollars, according to the Hollywood Reporter. However, this latest information has not been confirmed yet by HBO Max or Warner Bros. Pictures.
The Justice League will reunite again Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman, Flash y a Cyborg in an attempt to save the universe from a villain who had been pulling the strings from the shadows. The participation of Darkseid in the Snyder’s cut has long been talked about. In 2021 we will know the full truth of his vision for this film.
HBO Max is a new movies and series streaming service owned by WarnerMedia Entertainment, a division of WarnerMedia, a subsidiary of AT&T.
