Zack Snyder confirmed, at the end of an online screening of Man of Steel, that his ‘Snyder Cut’ version of Justice League was indeed real. And that it will be coming exclusively to HBO Max, the new WarnerMedia digital streaming service launching May 27, and is expected to debut in 2021. He has been releasing teases of the project on social media and today released a short teaser clip on Twitter.
In his Tweet Zack mentioned that more about the film; including possibly a longer trailer will be released at the recently announced DC FanDome virtual event; which has been created by DC/Warner Bros as a chance to discuss their projects and interact with fans after the cancellation of San Diego Comic Con 2020 due to Covid19.
It is currently unclear what form Snyder’s Justice League will take. Whether it will be released as an almost four-hour director’s cut or split into six “chapters” has yet to be decided, but the Snyder’s (with wife and producing partner, Deborah Snyder) are now in the midst of reassembling much of their original postproduction crew to score, cut, add new and finish old visual effects, and, yes, maybe bring back many of the actors to record additional dialogue. Also unclear is the cost of the endeavour. One source has pegged the effort in the $20 million range, although another source says that figure could be closer to $30 million. The parties involved had no comment.
