The long-awaited Zack Snyder’s Justice League (aka The Snyder Cut) will hit HBO Max on the 18th of March. The announcement was made on Friday by director Zach Snyder.
According to HBO, the superhero movie will debut as a full-length Max Original and not in four separate hour-long parts as originally planned.
The original version of Justice League debuted in November 2017. Ahead of its release, the DC Extended Universe superhero film endured a difficult production. The director Joss Whedon stepped in to finish the movie during post-production after Snyder stepped away from the project for personal reasons.
When Justice League was released, fans and critics, were quite disappointed with the film. They mostly criticized Whedon’s contributions to the production.
Following this, a social media campaign was started by fans to release Snyder’s much longer version. Cast members like Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Henry Cavill (Superman), and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) supported the campaign as well.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be released one day before the debut of Marvel Studios’ newest miniseries, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. So the film is launching at a competitive time for superhero media.
In December last year, Warner Bros. announced that every single one of its adventure movies would release simultaneously on HBO Max and in theaters.
