JUSTICE LEAGUE Director Zack Snyder Reveals When THE SNYDER CUT Premieres On HBO Max

JUSTICE LEAGUE Director Zack Snyder Reveals When THE SNYDER CUT Premieres On HBO Max

Justice League director Zack Snyder just dropped a bombshell on Vero, as the filmmaker has revealed the premiere month for the "Snyder Cut" of his DC Extended Universe movie. Find out more details here...

Work continues on Zack Snyder's Justice League, and while HBO Max has yet to reveal an official premiere date, it appears Snyder himself has decided to take matters into his own hands! 

Once again answering fan questions on Vero, the filmmaker confirms that the "Snyder Cut" hits the streaming service next March. We've known for a while now that it would debut early in 2021, but a March premiere means it hits HBO Max the same month as Tom and Jerry and The Many Saints of Newark (a prequel to HBO's The Sopranos).

It's still unclear whether this version of Justice League will be released on a weekly basis or in one go, but it has previously been described as a four-part event series. 

Movies don't tend to drive people to streaming services as much as TV shows do, so stretching Justice League out over a number of weeks should ensure that HBO Max becomes the #1 destination for superhero fans in the Spring. The marketing campaign will likely pick up in the New Year, and Snyder's comments hopefully mean an official release date announcement isn't too far away. 

Take a look at Snyder's comments below:

10. Enter Uxas

Darkseid is expected to appear at the end of the movie after the League defeat Steppenwolf, but most of his screentime will seemingly be devoted to that "history lesson." 

Arriving on Earth and engaging in a heated battle with men, Atlanteans, and Amazons, this shot features Uxas unleashing the Anti-Life Equation, though something tells us that he won't be defeated quite as easily as Steppenwolf was in Joss Whedon's theatrical cut of Justice League
 

9. Superman Returns

What a beautiful sight to behold. 

Heading into Justice League, all fans really wanted was to see was Henry Cavill decked out in his black costume. Now, Snyder is making that a reality with The Snyder Cut, and it couldn't be better.

We're assuming he'll be back in the red and blue by the time all is said and done, but another part of the trailer confirmed that Kal-El wears this while flying into battle against Steppenwolf. 
 

8. The Hall Of Justice

Justice League: The Snyder Cut will take us back to that "Knightmare" future, and there are a lot of great Easter Eggs in this shot from the trailer. Aquaman's trident can be seen alongside Wonder Woman's shield and the portrait of Thomas Wayne from Wayne Manor. 

Most intriguing is The Joker playing card which blows across the screen; is that the same one the Dark Knight attached to his gun in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's flashforward?
 

7. Iris West

We have no idea whether Kiersey Clemons will still play Iris West in The Flash, but there have been rumblings Warner Bros. is now looking for a different actress to take on the role in the DCEU.

Her Iris will be part of The Snyder Cut, however, as is evident from this visually striking scene with Barry Allen racing into action to save her. Clearly, this is her first exposure to the Scarlet Speedster.
 

6. DeSaad

DeSaad was created by Jack Kirby in Fourth World and is based loosely on the Marquis de Sade. He's Darkseid's chief torturer and was taken in by the villain as a child (where he was twisted into becoming the unhinged psychopathic monster you see depicted in the GIF above).

His role in Justice League: The Snyder Cut is unlikely to be much more than a cameo, but spending some time on Apokolips promises to be very revealing and a big deal for fans of The New Gods.
 

5. Enter The Speed Force

Zack Snyder has previously indicated that the Flash will make use of time-travel in this version of Justice League, and it seems as if this is the moment Barry Allen enters the Speed Force. 

It's likely a moment which comes during the final battle against Steppenwolf, likely after Cyborg tries and fails to turn the Mother Boxes against the League's foe. This is no doubt supposed to lay the groundwork for when the hero travels back from that desolate future to warn Batman of what's to come.
 

4. The Death Of Superman

Zack Snyder has confirmed that his version of Justice League will revisit the moment Superman died at the hands of Doomsday, and this appears to be exactly that. 

Presumably, this moment is going to be used to explain how the Man of Steel is able to return from the dead as the way things played out in the theatrical cut felt like they had probably been simplified by Joss Whedon. This is a beautifully shot sequence regardless. 
 

3. Badass Batman

This is a minor moment in the trailer released during DC FanDome on Saturday, but it's one fans have responded to in a big way. That's likely because it reminds them so much of the comics. 

After all, the Caped Crusader using his gauntlets to deflect these blasts from the Parademons is undeniably badass, and shows that as, even just a man, Batman is a worthy, formidable part of the team. With any luck, the Caped Crusader will be a more proactive part of this final battle. 
 

2. Silas Stone's Demise

There are some big moments in this trailer, including Superman's clash with Steppenwolf and the moment we get to see the redesigned version of that villain (he looks so much better here). 

However, this is a far more emotional part of the teaser, and confirms that Dr. Silas Stone dies in Justice League: The Snyder Cut. It's a powerful, impressively shot sequence which brings back memories of the way Jon Osterman became Dr. Manhattan in 2008's Watchmen movie. 
 

1. The Justice League Assembles

The theatrical version of Justice League contained a team shot, but this one is so much better. 

Superman is decked out in his black suit, and the reason the heroes are standing there isn't just because it looks cool...it's because they're about to board the Flying Fox (which is more than likely piloted by Alfred Pennyworth in this lengthier, original cut of the DC Comics movie). 

One of the most intriguing parts of Justice League: The Snyder Cut is what comes after this...
