After months of anticipation, American filmmaker Zack Snyder's Justice League cut finally got a release date by HBO Max. On Friday, the video-on-demand streaming service announced that 'Snyder Cut' of the blockbuster 2017 film will premiere on March 18, 2021. According to HBO, the DCEU superhero adventure film will debut on HBO Max as a full-length feature film and not in four separate one-hour-long parts as planned by them originally.
On January 29, streaming giant HBO Max took DCEU fans by surprise after announcing the release date of Zack Snyder's Justice League cut. Sharing three different post-apocalyptic looking posters of the upcoming superhero film on Instagram, HBO Max wrote, "Zack Snyder’s Justice League premieres March 18 exclusively on HBO Max. #SnyderCut". While the first poster shows the 'JL' logo smashed on stone, its second poster featured a flag with a 'JL' logo, whereas the third shows two discarded film reels that read 'Snyder'.
In no time, the IG post caught netizens' attention and was quick to make headlines too. While the feature film will release in the US on HBO Max, Justice League's Snyder cut will also release on HBO services in central Europe, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway as well as on HBO Go in Asia on the same date as the US. The makers will soon announce the release plans for other regions around the world as well.
For the unversed, 2017's original version of DC Extended Universe's Justice League was edited and reshot by Joss Whedon after Zack Snyder had to step down during the post-production of the film. Snyder had opted out from the film after the demise of his daughter. However, when the original Justice League released in 2017, it couldn't manage to impress the critics and didn't perform well at the box office either.
Thus, ardent fans of DC started a social media campaign demanding the release of Snyder's version of Justice League. The campaign was also backed by actors including Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa. Following that, in May last year, the filmmaker finally announced the release of his Justice League on HBO Max.
