Zack Snyder’s Justice League Will Debut on HBO MAX

After almost three years of fan anticipation, events, and teases, it is official; Zack Snyder’s Justice League will see the light of day on HBO Max in 2020.

“I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized. Also a special thank you to all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality,” said Snyder.
 
“When Zack and Debbie shared the extraordinary vision of where Zack wanted to take Justice League, my team and our counterparts at Warner Bros. took it as a mission to solve the many issues that stood in the way,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer at HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS and truTV. “Thanks to the partnership at Warner Bros. and the relentless pursuit of the entire WarnerMax team we are able to deliver this incredibly exciting moment for Zack, the fans and HBO Max.”
 
“Thanks to the efforts of a lot people, we’re excited to bring fans this highly anticipated version of Justice League,” said Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “This feels like the right time to share Zack’s story, and HBO Max is the perfect platform for it. We’re glad the creative planets aligned, allowing us to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.”

The Snyder Cut of Justice League has become part of the cultural zeitgeist, with seemingly everyone having an opinion on it before it ever even released. Zack Snyder’s Justice League went into the mainstream in November of 2017. Snyder himself began teasing his version of Justice League on Vero throughout 2019, slowly gaining traction with actors from the film chiming in with their support.

In March of 2019, Snyder teased potential new sequences for his Justice League film, fueling more fire to the rumors that the director had been in contact with AT&T.

“Since I got here 14 months ago, the chant to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut has been a daily drumbeat in our offices and inboxes. Well, the fans have asked, and we are thrilled to finally deliver. At the end of the day, it really is all about them and we are beyond excited to be able to release Zack’s ultimate vision for this film in 2021. This could never have happened if it weren’t for the hard work and combined efforts of the teams at HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer.”

The arrival of HBO Max changed the game for the Snyder Cut of Justice League. The streaming wars are in full-force with Netflix, Disney and more competing to create their own services with full back catalogues of impressive IPs. AT&T, the new sheriff in town for all things Warner Bros and HBO, was seemingly a huge player in assisting this project. Having the likes of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman appear on their platform gives them a needed edge in their streaming battle.

“When Zack and Debbie shared the extraordinary vision of where Zack wanted to take Justice League, my team and our counterparts at Warner Bros. took it as a mission to solve the many issues that stood in the way,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer at HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS and truTV. “Thanks to the partnership at Warner Bros. and the relentless pursuit of the entire WarnerMax team we are able to deliver this incredibly exciting moment for Zack, the fans and HBO Max.”
