HBO Max set to #ReleaseTheSynderCut of ‘Justice League’!
After over a year of fans campaigning for Warner Bros. to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, HBO Max are finally going to gift us Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League and we’ve only heard the word from the director himself! In 2021, Snyder’s take will be available exclusively on HBO’s streaming service either in the format of a four-hour length film or six-part miniseries.
Whilst it’s still to be confirmed whether The Snyder Cut will be a film or TV series, the original version will reportedly cost up to $30 million to cut as a lot of Snyder’s work remains unfinished (musical score, special effects, and editing). Snyder originally stepped down as director during post-production of Justice League after his daughter’s death in 2017 and Joss Whedon then took over directorial duties to get the film released on schedule.
When Joss Whedon stepped in, Warner Bros. put in an additional $25 million to carry out reshoots under his creative visual so the 2017 theatrical release of Justice League ended up including around only one fourth of Snyder’s scenes.
Int all started in 2019, when fans behind #ReleaseTheSnyderCut launched #ProjectComicCon during SDCC, paying for billboards and bus stop ads to get their voices heard and it’s fair to say the campaigning has paid off! *applause*
