After years of campaigns, hopes, and dreams, Zack Snyder’s Justice League release has been confirmed.
Ever Since Snyder departed Justice League in 2017 following a family tragedy, fans have dreamed of being able to see the director’s version of the film. And once Joss Whedon was brought in to complete the film in Snyder’s absence, those dreams turned into a full-fledged campaign known as #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.
During a Man of Steel watch party on Wednesday, Snyder finally made those dreams come true as he announced that Zack Snyder’s Justice League will finally see the light of day.
At the very end of the livestream, which featured a lengthy visit by Henry Cavill, Snyder showed off a slide that announced the film will appear on HBO Max in 2021.
According to a lengthy report from The Hollywood Reporter, it is undetermined if the film will be a four-hour director’s cut or possibly split into a six-part mini-series. Snyder and his wife and producing partner, Deborah Snyder, are currently working to reassemble the postproduction team to score, cut, and finish effects. There may also be a chance to bring in some of the actors to record additional dialogue.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Deborah Snyder said, “With the new platform and streaming services, you can have something like this. You can’t release something like this theatrically, but you could with a streaming service. It’s an opportunity that wasn’t there two years ago, to be honest.”
As of right now there is no schedule, and the pieces are just being put into place. No specific date beyond “2021” has been announced as of yet. HBO Max will launch on May 27.
