Director Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ Movie Cut Streaming on HBO Max March 18

HBO Max will stream director Zack Snyder’s highly-anticipated personal cut of 2017 DC Comics superhero movie Justice League beginning March 18, according to WarnerMedia, which announced the release date Jan. 29.

Justice League features a team of well-known DC superheroes: Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) inspired by Superman (Henry Cavill) and his ally, Diana Prince (Gadot), to fight a new global threat. The movie, which was finished by Joss Whedon after Snyder dropped out due to his daughter’s reported suicide, generated $657 million at the global box office.

Cult fans of the franchise contended Whedon’s take on the superhero ensemble was different in tone than Snyder’s original. When speculation of a “Snyder Cut” of the movie emerged, WarnerMedia jumped at the marketing opportunity.

“I just was kind of done with [the movie],” Snyder told CinemaBlend. “I was in this place of [knowing] my family needs me more than this bullshit, 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.”

Dubbed Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the new cut will be rated ‘R’ and run as a four-hour movie. When announced last year Snyder originally said it would be presented in four hourlong installments.

Concurrently with the premiere on Max in the U.S., the movie will be available on HBO services in Europe across the Nordics, Central Europe, Spain, and Portugal as well as on the HBO GO service in Asia. In Latin America, the title will premiere exclusively on HBO Max when the service launches in the region later this year.
