It’s official. A different cut of the movie Justice League from original director Zack Snyder is in the works and it will be released on HBO Max in 2021. The director announced the news during an online Q&A for Man of Steel. Some fans have been clamoring for the “Snyder Cut” of Justice League since the director stepped down from the film and Joss Whedon took over as director. Now they’ll get it, sort of.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Snyder revealed that the project will be “an entirely new thing.” What does that mean? “You probably saw one-fourth of what I did,” the director said of the theatrical cut of the movie. Now, with the upcoming HBO Max streaming service, Snyder had an outlet for the project.
Those who believed a version of the movie existed that was ready are going to be slightly disappointed. It turns out the truth of the matter is that Snyder walked away from the project following the death of his daughter with an unfinished cut that has no visual effects or post-production work done to it. But, after screening what he had for Warner Bros. and DC executives, they were interested.
