Well, it’s finally happening!
Believe it or not, director Zack Snyder is finally going to
complete his cut of Justice League with
a $20 million budget, which is going to release sometime this year on HBO Max.
Originally released in 2017, Justice League is a DC version of Avengers made after a massive fan campaign. The movie couldn’t even
capture the half of superhero glam, hype and excitement as compared to Marvel’s
Avengers, though. It’s a shambolic mess, if you ask us!
Okay, let’s not get into Marvel vs. DC fight now!
Since it was first announced, fans— who’re eager to see the
new look at DC superheroes collab— have been campaigning for more than two
years with the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. But because of some personal
tragedy, Snyder wasn’t able to complete the film to release on time.
Needless to say, Justice
League had a really long journey. Lots of things happened in between since
the first appeals for a new version of the movie emerged online, so we thought
it might be useful to catch up with the events that lead to “Snyder cut,” when
it is going to release, and what’s the hype about it.
Here’s everything you need to know about Justice League Zack Snyder cut and all
the fan drama that brought it into existence:
It’s the director Zack Snyder’s unedited take on 2017 Justice League, a film which stars Aqua
man, Superman, Wonder woman, Flash and, of course, Batman.
Snyder couldn’t complete the film in post-production in 2017
because of the sudden death of his daughter; Warner Bros assigned Joss Whedon
to complete the film on his behalf.
But Snyder claims that the version we have seen in the
theatres was extremely altered, mostly because the studio wanting it to have
more of Whedon’s signature banter and less of Snyder’s drama. And the outcome
of this conflict was a mess! Despite its thrashing performance at the box
office, the film generally received unfavorable reviews from the critics and
The Snyder Cut wasn’t even in the picture until some
enthusiastic fans campaigned under the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. Soon,
actors Gal Gadot (Wonder woman) and Ben Affleck (batman) also joined the cause.
Though, Snyder hadn’t yet completed his final cut of Justice League until HBO Max decided to
offer him $20 million to finish the movie. There were rumors that he might be
considering to turn the movie into a miniseries.
But, it’s now confirmed that it will be a 4 hour long movie.
“I am just really happy that Zack got to realize his
vision,” actor Henry Cavill said in a recent interview. “I think it’s important
for a filmmaker and a storyteller to have their intended vision released and
shown to the world, and I’m looking forward seeing it myself. It’s been quite
the ordeal.” While commenting on the powerful fans’ campaign for a Snyder cut,
Cavill said, “Over the subsequent years, there was a big push to see the fabled
Snyder Cut. And now that time has come, and I think it’s going to be very
enjoyable to watch Zack finally release his version.”
fans make it happen?
It all started with a petition. The petition was signed by over
179,000 fans after the release of Justice
League, where fans asked the studio to release the Snyder version of the
movie on DVD or on streaming channels. From there on, fans flocked to twitter
to intensify the campaign with the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, leading to the
involvement of Zack Snyder himself who further stoked the fire.
On the two year anniversary of Justice League, the hashtag
was trending worldwide, giving a clear cut statement that even after years, fans
still wanted to quench their thirst for Snyder Cut.
Well, at last, fans won! All credits goes to the people
handling HBO Max, who have realized that the Snyder Cut release will give them
the desired boost in subscribers as they attempt to compete with Netflix and
there any trailer for Snyder Cut?
Yes! Snyder released the trailer this Valentine’s Day,
because what would be more romantic than seeing your favorite superheroes
getting back on action.
Snyder provided fans with a first glimpse of Jared Leto, who
is reprising his character Joker from 2016’s Suicide Squad. Well, we don’t know
how Snyder is going to accommodate his character into the original plotline (he
was entirely absent in the original cut). In the last seconds of the short
teaser, we see him speaking to Batman “We live in a society.”
The rest of the trailer has everything you can expect from
the renewed version of the movie. But Joker’s addition in the version would be
really interesting to see!
