Justice League Snyder-Cut Set To Arrive In March:
Some more good news for our hardcore DC fans. Back in 2017 when Justice League originally, it definitely did not end well, and people literally commented all over social media posts that they felt almost as if the CGI was done on some wrecked mobile. The 2017 flick was directed by Joss Whedon and failed to get the project together properly as Zack (co-director)had to leave abruptly following a tragedy – the sad demise of his daughter. But now, things are getting official.
Snyder also shared a photo of the process, with the caption, “Let it begin #zacksnydersjusticeleague” and the photo said “Picture Start”. The movie is set to release in 2021 on HBO. The photo reads, “Picture Start” which will eventually be removed once the movies hit the theatres. This photo, when circulated, surely made some nice hype amongst the fans. Now, this new flick by Snyder comes in with the reason that new footage has been added, with due credits to two re-shoots that were planned and fully executed. With the new footage being included and Snyder heavily altering and amalgamating both the footage, we cannot wait to see how different Snyder’s cut will be from the one that actually made it to the screen. But now, the wait is over, and it has been announced that Zack Snyder’s Justice League will release in March 2021.
Earlier, no definite month was announced, and this kind of stirred the fans, and not in a good way. Later it was reported Zack Snyder’s Justice League was targeting an early 2021 debut, implying it would come out within the first quarter of next year. The project’s window was seemingly narrowed down even further more recently when WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar wrote in a blog post that “the Snyder Cut would be arriving on HBO Max in a few months”. But that term, “few months”, is now affirmative, i.e., March 2021.
As of very recently, Snyder responded to a fan on Vero, namely Thiago Kesseli, about wiping Joss Whedon’s cut of Justice League out of existence, Snyder mentioned Zack Snyder’s Justice League premieres in March. Check out the post below:
Now, this is something worth noticing that Warner Bros. and HBO Max have not made any official statement regarding the official release date, but what Snyder commented is surely running parallel with what Kilar previously said. This is the most specific release window that we have got yet ever since the project was announced. But still, it seems like we are a little far off from getting the exact release date. But if March has been announced, then it will be no surprise that we will start seeing Warner Bros. unwrapping their marketing strategies super soon and would further hype the project to attract more subscribers to HBO Max.
Any upcoming promotional materials will likely clear up any other lingering queries viewers have about Justice League, such as if the movie is Rated R or not. This comes in with the light that Zack Snyder’s Justice League is by far one of the most high-profile projects to come to HBO Max since the streaming service launched earlier this year, so there will surely be a big push for it over the next couple of months.
What really excites us is the clash of release dates. We all know how severe the rivalry is between Marvel and DC, and these two big guns usually tend to avoid each other at the box office, but in March, Marvel is releasing The Falcon and the Winter Soldier which premiers on Disney+, and DC is releasing Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max. This will be really fun to watch as we will get to see reviews pouring in left to the right regarding the two most anticipated projects of March 2021. Both the franchise’s fans will get to feast their eyes on a lot of comic book content that too in a short period of time. This will definitely make up for the lack of content release in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.
The good news is that fans who were actively involved in the campaigning of Zack Snyder’s Justice League are not sitting firm with at least the confirmed month of release, i.e, March. Let us know how you feel about Snyder’s cut of Justice League and how you think it will be different.
