American comic book publisher, DC Comics announced that it’s going to release the famous unreleased version of the 2017 superhero movie directed by Zack Snyder, “Snyder Cut” from the Justice League.
According to the announcement, the film will debut on the HBO Max streaming service in 2021. The unreleased version is being released in response to a years-long campaign by fans.
Snyder oversaw the filming of the “Justice League,” which brought together DC Comics heroes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and others. The director had gathered part of the film before retiring to face a family tragedy.
“Avengers” director Joss Whedon took over in post-production to oversee reshoots and complete editing. The final product drew lackluster reviews. Just 40% of reviews on the Rotten Tomatoes website gave “Justice League” a positive rating.
Fans have speculated that they would prefer Snyder’s version. #ReleaseTheSnyderCut became a trendy hashtag from 2017 and has remained popular around the world. Fans even bought a billboard in New York’s Times in October 2019 to promote their cause.
Robert Greenblatt, chairman of AT&T Inc’s (T.N) Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer division said “the fans have asked, and we are thrilled to finally deliver,” which will launch HBO Max on May 27.
HBO Max will compete with Netflix Inc (NFLX.O), Walt Disney Co’s (DIS.N) Disney+, and other subscription video services vying for online audiences.
“Justice League” stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
