zack snyder's justice league review

Is Zack Snyder’s Justice League a superhero movie disguised as a fantasy epic, or a fantasy flick cosplaying as a superhero saga? The answer seems to be somewhere in the middle. One thing is for certain: Zack Snyder was not trying to make just another comic book sequel when he set out to make Justice League. After leaving the project only to see so much of his work reshot by Joss Whedon, Snyder has returned to reassemble the movie he originally intended to make. The end result is more akin to The Lord of the Rings than Batman v Superman – a film about humans and fantastical creatures from various kingdoms joining forces to fight against an ancient, all-powerful evil that threatens to plunge the world into darkness.

Zack Snyder's Justice League Trailer New

It’s been a long, strange road, but Zack Snyder’s Justice League, AKA the Snyder Cut, is almost here. The theatrical cut of the film may have given sole directorial credit to Zack Snyder, but the filmmaker departed the project due to personal matters and most of the finished film was shot by Joss Whedon. Now, four years after that cut arrived on the big screen, Snyder’s preferred cut of the movie is arriving on HBO Max. It’s a four-hour superhero epic featuring footage fans have been waiting for, and you can watch the latest trailer below.

Snyder Cut DC FanDome Panel

Justice League, a film which is being investigated by Warner Bros. and DC’s parent company three years after it was released, has been a hot topic in the movie world for years, thanks to a particularly loud group of fans who mounted a campaign to see director Zack Snyder‘s original version of the movie. Their efforts paid off: this summer, HBO Max announced that it will be spending considerably more than $30 million for Snyder to deliver a “radical rethinking” of the movie to the streaming service next year.

Today, Snyder took the virtual stage at DC FanDome for a panel devoted to his upcoming iteration where he released a new trailer, thanked fans for their enthusiasm, had a bizarre Q&A session where he asked fans questions, and revealed that his vision is going to be split into four hours on HBO Max. Here are the highlights from the panel.

Fan’s demanded it, and now it’s a reality. Well, almost. Zack Snyder’s Justice League, aka the Snyder Cut, will find its way onto HBO Max in 2021, giving fans a chance to see Zack Snyder‘s uncompromised vision. While Snyder’s name is still on the theatrically-released Justice League, the filmmaker parted ways with the project due to personal matters, and Joss Whedon came in to handle reshoots.

Ever since then, hardcore Snyder fans have been loudly decrying this as the greatest travesty in the history of cinema, demanding access to Snyder’s preferred version of the film. For a while, it seemed like it would never happen – but in the name of promoting HBO Max, Warner Bros. gave in, and Snyder has been working on piecing his cut together. And today, during DC Fandome, a trailer was released.

Zack Snyder's Justice League footage

Zack Snyder wants to make one thing crystal clear: when audiences tune in for his “Snyder Cut” of Justice League when it debuts on HBO Max, there won’t be a single shot in there that was composed by Joss Whedon, who stepped in to take over production after Snyder left the movie back in 2017.

The long-awaited “Snyder Cut” of the Justice League is finally coming to HBO Max, though fans will have to wait at least a year for the very expensive project to hit the streaming service.

Snyder Cut Justice League

According to WarnerMedia chairman and HBO Max head Bob Greenblatt, the infamous Snyder Cut of Justice League “does not exist.” Yet. But as was revealed last week, HBO Max is going to be providing funding so Snyder can make a finalized version, and one report claimed the new streamer would be spending $30 million to make that happen.

But in a new interview, Greenblatt suggests it will cost much more than that to complete, and calls the new version “a radical rethinking of that movie” and says it will be “wildly expensive.” Read his full quotes below.

Fans demanded it – frequently and vocally – and now it’s happening. The long-awaited “Snyder Cut” of Justice League will finally see the light of day on HBO Max. I know – I can’t believe it either. But here we are! We’ll probably never know the whole story about what happened behind-the-scenes – and anyone who tells you they know it is probably lying.

But it boils down to this: a lot of the footage original Justice League director Zack Snyder shot for the superhero film ended up on the cutting room floor, and Joss Whedon shot additional footage instead. Fans have long-maintained that even though they haven’t actually seen it, the Snyder Cut would be the superior movie. And now they’re going to be able to find out if that’s actually true.

Before we begin: in the spirit of the holiday season, can we all agree to not turn this into a debate about whether the Snyder Cut will ever be seen commercially? Cool. Now, on with the story.

Zack Snyder frequently shares images from his planned version of Justice League on Vero, his social media platform of choice. Most of them are of little consequence to anyone outside the most ardent fans and supporters of Snyder’s vision, but particular image has floated above that and into the level of being potentially interesting to the rest of the fan community as well. Check out the photo of actor Henry Cavill wearing Superman’s black suit below.

snyder cut release

Will we ever see The Snyder Cut, the fabled alternate version of Justice League? I really don’t know. But a lot of people want it to see the light of day – not just fans, but the folks associated with the film as well. Last night, director Zack Snyder and a large chunk of the Justice League cast took to social media to petition Warner Bros. to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. The comments looked so coordinated that many assumed it was all a build-up towards an official announcement that the cut was coming – perhaps to HBO Max. But that’s not the case. According to Warner Bros., there are no immediate plans to release the Snyder Cut. Unless they’re lying and this is all part of a very elaborate campaign.
