New posters for Zack Snyder’s Justice League were revealed today. The posters, which are shown here and on page four, depict a more in-tone version of the worlds greatest heroes, reflecting the directors overarching vision for DC Comics’ cinematic universe.
Snyder’s highly sought after cut of “Justice League” will be four hours long. It will be the longest superhero movie to date. The highly anticipated “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” film will be released to HBO Max on March 18, 2021.
After the planet wide #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement, HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures announced last year that it will exclusively world premiere Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of the Warner Bros. Pictures/DC 2017 feature film “Justice League.”
#ReleaseTheSnyderCut first became a passionate rallying social media cry among fans in 2017. From countless press articles and hundreds of millions of social media mentions, it became a powerful global movement among cinephiles and comic book fans alike.
Zack Snyder’s cut of the 2017 flop is said to be a complete 180 from the theatrical version. Something many fans appreciate after reshoots, creative direction and so much more let them down.
Release the Snyder Cut originated in late 2017 and early 2018, immediately following “Justice League’s” premier in theaters. During the films shooting, Warner Bros. hired Marvel Cinematic Universe alum, Joss Whedon onto the film in order to help sway it into the studio’s ideal creative direction. Soon after Whedon’s hiring, Snyder took a leave of absence from the film due to a family tragedy, leaving its direction in Whedon’s hands.
Whedon directed two months’ worth of reshoots for the film and creatively remade the picture according to Warner Bros. liking. The result was controversial ratings among fans. Some liked the movie, and many hated it. Some of this discourse was rooted around Henry Cavil’s mustache debacle and some disappointment was also shrouded by the updated writing and storyline for the movie.
Secrets from the set reshoots have also surfaced in the wake of Whedon’s critical flop. Cyborg actor Ray Fisher Fisher commented on Whedon’s on-set treatment of cast and crew members of Justice League in early July stating the director was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.”
According to Fisher, former WB co-president of production Jon Berg, and former DC Entertainment president, chief creative officer Geoff Johns, and current WB President Walter Hamada “enabled” Whedon. Warner has since launched a third part investigation taking remedial action.
Back in 2017, Justice League was deemed a critical flop. Now, over three years after the initial release, fans and actors alike are getting the Justice League they deserve.
