Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ gets release date!
No one can ever forget how big of a trainwreck Justice League was back in 2017. Since then, everyone has been waiting for Zack Snyder’s take on Justice League, thinking it’ll be the savior of DC. Well now, the long wait for the Snyder cut is finally over. We have a release date for the film.
The director himself has finally confirmed that the movie is headed to HBO Max for release on Thursday, 18th of March 2021 on HBO Max, only in the US. This is due to its unavailability outside of the US as of yet. That said, Warner Bros. has confirmed that there will be some international releases. They’ll be mainly on HBO services in Europe and Asia, such as HBO GO. But, the UK is not part of any of those plans right now. Warner Bros. will reveal release dates for the UK soon. Furthermore, Latin America will also get a release date for Zack Snyder’s Justice League when HBO Max launches in the region later this year.
Moreover, the Snyder Cut of Justice League will be significantly different from the original version, as depicted by the following posters released by Warner Bros.:
An unparalleled movement for an uncompromised vision.

What will Zack Snyder’s Justice League be like?
Other than Snyder’s signature dark take on DC, Warner Bros. has also released a new synopsis for the film. It reads:
Determined to ensure Superman’s ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne aligns forces with Diana Prince with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.
Furthermore, Zack Snyder has also opened up about why he left DC in between filming the original Justice League. While talking to Comicbook.com, Snyder said:
I just was kind of done with it, I was in this place of [knowing] my family needs me more than this bulls**t, and I just need to honor them and do the best I can to heal that world. I had no energy to fight [the studio], and fight for [the movie]. Literally, zero energy for that. I really think that’s the main thing.
We hope Zack Snyder’s Justice League is able to restore some to DC.
