In a reply to a fan on the social media app Vero early Thursday morning Justice League Director Zack Snyder dropped a potential release date for his highly anticipated cut of the film. In his comment he states that he hopes to wipe Whedon’s infamous version of the film from existence with “what [we] see in March.”
Snyder’s Director’s Cut of “Justice League” is set to have its World Premiere Exclusively on HBO Max in a four part mini series styled format with each chapter being around an hour long. Zack’s also pushing for the film to be released to select theaters.
Reasons why the last week of March 2021 is most likely could include the fact that Zack Snyder’s birthday is March 1, 1966 –– he will be 55 next year. This slatted release date could also be in memory of his daughter, Autumn Snyder, who sadly passed away in March (November 27, 1996 – March 12, 2017).
SnyderCon, the “Zack Snyder: The Director’s Cuts” weekend event at ArtCenter College of Design, took place Friday March 22, 2019 through Sunday March 24, 2019. There’s just too many coincidences and significant correlating dates. Many of Zack’s more popular films also released in March.

A date of great significance
The first comic book appearance of the Justice League of America, fighting Starro the Conqueror, was in The Brave and the Bold no. 28, which has a cover date of March 1960. Gardner Fox, the creator of the Justice League of America, was born on May 20, 1911 and Zack Snyder made the official Snyder Cut announcement on Wednesday May 20, 2020.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
The Justice League screenplay is by Chris Terrio, story by Chris Terrio & Zack Snyder, based on characters from DC, Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film’s producers are Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, with executive producers Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas, Jim Rowe, Ben Affleck, Wesley Coller, Curtis Kanemoto, and Chris Terrio.
