Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021 film)
Zack Snyder’s Justice League, commonly referred to as the “Snyder Cut”, is the upcoming director’s cut of Zack Snyder’s 2017 superhero film, Justice League. It presents Justice League, the fifth film of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name, as director Snyder had intended it before he left the production and Joss Whedon took over his duties. Like the theatrical release, Zack Snyder’s Justice League follows the Justice League—Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg—as they attempt to save the world from the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons.
The theatrical Justice League, released in 2017, suffered a difficult production. Its script underwent major changes before and during production between 2016 and 2017. In May 2017, Snyder stepped down during post-production following the suicide of his daughter, and Whedon took over, completing the film as an uncredited director. Whedon oversaw reshoots and other changes that added a brighter tone and more humor to the film, and cut the runtime down to 120 minutes in accordance with a mandate from Warner Bros. The theatrical release of Justice League was a commercial failure and received mixed reviews, leading Warner Bros. to re-evaluate the future of the DCEU.
When details surfaced about the film’s troubled production and its state before Snyder stepped down, many fans expressed interest in an alternate cut more faithful to Snyder’s vision. Fans and members of the cast and crew petitioned for the release of this, which they nicknamed the Snyder Cut. At the time, Warner Bros. had no plans to release an alternate cut, and film industry figures regarded the release as unlikely. However, Warner Bros. changed its mind in February 2020, and the following May, Snyder announced that the original four-hour cut would be completed and released as Zack Snyder’s Justice League via the streaming service HBO Max. The restoration will cost $20–30 million to complete the visual effects, score, and editing.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is scheduled to be released in 2021 on HBO Max.
