Finally, there is a definite release date for the Snyder Cut of Justice League, officially titled Zack Snyder’s Justice League. It will be launched on March 18 on WarnerMedia’s streaming service, HBO Max.
HBO Max and Snyder’s formal Twitter handle shared the news. Three posters followed the announcement. One displays the logo of the Justice League, consisting of debris. A tattered Justice League flag is seen in the second one. The third and final one is a movie canister with Snyder written on it, perhaps a Snyder Cut nod.
The scenes seem to tease the realization, in Batman v Superman, of the Knightmare dream sequence. After being terraformed by Darkseid, Bruce Wayne dreamt that the earth had been converted into a wasteland and Superman had become evil.
Reportedly, WarnerMedia invested 30 million dollars to complete the Snyder Cut. It is estimated that the film will be four hours long. As HBO Max is not available anywhere else, it is not clear whether it would be made available to viewers outside the US.
It is assumed that the plot of the film will be essentially the same, with the main exception that Darkseid, his master, will also be seen in the film, in addition to Steppenwolf. Also present would be several other scenes that were used in the trailers but were omitted from the theatrical version.
