Since the Snyder Cut was announced in a live stream on May 20th 2020, fan anticipation has been running high. The new version of Justice League will premiere exclusively on HBO Max, but when does it come out?
Initially, director Zack Snyder revealed that his cut of Justice League will be arriving to HBO Max sometime in 2021. Since then, WarnerMedia’s president of productions and business operations, Sandra Dewey, revealed that fans can expect the movie to hit HBO Max in the first half of 2021. In that case, there’s probably less than a year left to wait.
Another question that’s been occupying fans is how long the cut will be. After the theatrical edition of Justice League clocked in at 1 hour 59 minutes, it surfaced that Warner Bros.’ CEO at the time was reportedly reluctant for the film to run over 2 hours. That doesn’t seem to be an issue with the Snyder Cut, however – in an interview, Snyder stated: ‘I famously advertised the runtime at 214 minutes. Now, in its current state, it’s going to end up being longer than that yet’. He also teased that it’s ‘exciting to bring all this new material to the fans’. Of course, this comes with the caveat that the movie is not yet finished, so this 3.5 hours-and-counting runtime isn’t final.
There is also the possibility that the Snyder Cut will end up being a miniseries rather than a movie. Either way, fans can be sure that the eventual release will not only be the realization of Snyder’s vision, but also an ending to the story begun in Man of Steel and continued with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
