Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Zack Snyder’s Justice League on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Sept. 7.
The film represents director Zack Snyder’s original vision for 2017’s Justice League. He famously left the production due to a family tragedy, and the studio brought in Joss Whedon to finish the film with reshoots and a theater-friendly two-hour cut. It ended up making $657.9 million, falling short of expectations, which led to a fan movement to petition the studio to release Snyder’s version.
Those pleas remained confined to the realm of online debates until the advent of the HBO Max streaming service, which commissioned Snyder to finish his version.
The “Snyder Cut” ended up being four hours long and was released on HBO Max in March.
A sequel to 2016’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the film finds Batman (Bruce Wayne) recruiting a team of superheroes, including Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to protect Earth from Steppenwolf, the harbinger of an invasion by the evil Darkseid, who seeks three ancient objects of immense power that may be the key to resurrecting Superman (Henry Cavill).
The Ultra HD Blu-ray disc of Zack Snyder’s Justice League will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment.
