Zack Snyder Seemingly Confirms March Release Date for Justice League!
Guys, Zack Snyder’s Justice League might be coming to HBO Max in March! The director revealed as much during an exchange with a fan on his Vero account, which you can read below!
When a fan named Thiago Kesseli, speaking about the theatrical cut of Justice League, told Snyder he should “destroy every copy, please,” Snyder responded by saying: “I understand and of course respect your feelings and I just hope I can wipe that Version out of existence with what you see in March.”
So, there you have it. In point of fact, the date makes sense as March 25, 2021, marks the five-year anniversary of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. A lot of Snyder’s films were released in March as well, including Dawn of the Dead (March 10, 2004), 300 (March 9, 2007), Watchmen (March 6, 2009), and Sucker Punch (March 25, 2011).
Zack Snyder’s Justice League will reportedly cost around $70 million in order to properly finish the editing and visual effects of the director’s original vision, as well as the additional photography. The original post-production crew is also expected to return along with the cast members to record additional dialogue for the cut.
It was revealed at DC FanDome that the movie will release on HBO Max in 2021 by being broken up into four one-hour parts that will also be released as one four-hour film.
Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League, which features a screenplay from Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio, stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
Released in November 2017, the film earned mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, praising the action and performances from Gadot and Miller while criticizing every other aspect of the film, namely the inconsistent tone that many fault Joss Whedon (The Avengers) for after taking over directorial duties from Snyder. With a large budget of $300 million and a break-even point of $750 million, the film is considered a box office bomb having grossed only $658 million.
