Let’s be honest. We’ve ALL been waiting for some juice on Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Not too long ago, Twitterati went into a tizzy and urged for the release of Snyder’s cut –because, though replacement director Joss Whedon did a so-so job with the DC superhero movie Justice League, nothing quite compares to Snyder’s touch (you know what we mean.)
Now, after much coercion from fans world over (including Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot) there’s finally some real progress. Yes, Snyder’s cut is making its way into our screens through HBO Max, the Warner Media digital streaming service launching May 27, and is likely—if everything goes as per plan— to debut in 2021.
But, if you have a flurry of questions pertinent to how things will pan out—on its format, whether the production will release a four-hour director’s cut or will it be split into six chapters—we’d suggest you wait it out a little longer. Things are currently up in the air, though speculations are rife that the team could rope in additional actors to record extra dialogues.
While it’s pretty obvious that things are going to be done in an extensive budget range—with reliable sources hinting at the figures inching towards the $30 million mark. The same is yet to be confirmed by the core members of the team.
In a recent interview with a media outlet, Zack Snyder admitted that he hasn’t seen the version released in theatres so far. “It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie,” said Snyder.
For the record, Zack Snyder and his wife Deborah Snyder worked as a team for this project. Despite the developments and having a lot to be grateful for, the couple believes that the project, which saw his wife Deborah don the role of the producing partner, transpired into reality solely because of the fan power. “Clearly this wouldn’t be happening without them,” said Snyder, while giving due credits to Warners for retaining its authenticity as a filmmaker’s studio. “This return to that pedigree and to let my singular vision of my movie be realized, in this format, in this length, is unprecedented and a brave move,” he added.
