It’s seems as the chants and hashtags of “Release The Synder Cut” were heard – fans of the beloved DC Comics characters were treated to great news on Wednesday.
That’s right, Zack Snyder’s vision of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and The Flash, collectively known as the “Justice League” will finally see a release as the original director imagined.
Snyder along with HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures announced Wednesday that the highly anticipated director’s cut, now officially known as “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” will hit the HBO Max streaming service in 2021. The news broke early Wednesday morning during a live commentary watch of Man of Steel, when Snyder dropped the bombshell.
If you’re reading this and wondering why a three-year-old film being released is huge news – here’s a quick summary. Yes, originally Justice League released to theaters in the fall of 2017 to very mixed reviews. Many reasons could be brought up, but a huge factor was that Zack Snyder and his family suffered a tragedy and had to walk away from the project.
“Marvel’s The Avengers” director, Joss Whedon stepped up to complete the version of Justice League that was release worldwide. Since the release in 2017, fans from around the globe have joined together, creating the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut in hopes of getting the attention of the executives of Warner Bros. Some even took it a step further and dressed as the characters and marched down stood to the Warner Bros offices and demanded the release.
In the process, fans did garner support from the cast – Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher, and Jason Momoa all wanted the same, to have the definitive version of the film see the light of day.
Zack Snyder himself would add fuel to the fire of the rumored director’s cut by releasing concept art of ideas that would have been in his version of the film.
No word on if any reshoots are planned or if this version will be canon for the DC Extended Universe.
