HBO MAX RELEASING INFAMOUS JUSTICE LEAGUE SNYDER CUT

After years of ‘will-they-or-won’t-they’ rumors, HBO Max (which officially launches next Wednesday, BTW), just made it official that the infamous “Snyder cut” of Justice League, which features footage shot that didn’t make the 2017 film’s theatrical release will premiere on the streaming service next year.

#ReleaseTheSnyderCut first became a passionate rallying social media cry among fans in 2017 and has not let up. From countless press articles and hundreds of thousands of social media mentions, it became a powerful global movement among cinephiles and comic book fans.

“When Zack and Debbie shared the extraordinary vision of where Zack wanted to take Justice League, my team and our counterparts at Warner Bros. took it as a mission to solve the many issues that stood in the way,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer at HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS and truTV. “Thanks to the partnership at Warner Bros. and the relentless pursuit of the entire WarnerMax team we are able to deliver this incredibly exciting moment for Zack, the fans and HBO Max.”

“Thanks to the efforts of a lot people, we’re excited to bring fans this highly anticipated version of Justice League,” said Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “This feels like the right time to share Zack’s story, and HBO Max is the perfect platform for it. We’re glad the creative planets aligned, allowing us to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.”

“I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized. Also a special thank you to all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality,” said Snyder.

I had heard rumblings that it will cost an extra $20 million to render the footage that didn’t make the final cut, and while there were parts of Justice League that I liked and didn’t like, I’m definitely curious to see if this “Snyder cut” will improve the film. I’m also wondering if Warner Bros. will have to pay the actors another fee since this is a different cut of the film that’s being released? So many questions that need to be answered about this, and I’ll definitely keep my ears to the street on this story develops.
