A previously unreleased version of the 2017 superhero film Justice League by manager Zack Snyder will debut about the HBO Max streaming agency in 2021, executives said on Wednesday, in response to some years-long effort by fans.
The manager had put together a cut of this film before he resigned to take care of a family catastrophe.
Avengers manager Joss Whedon took over in post-production to oversee reshoots and total editing. The last product brought lackluster reviews. Only 40 percent of reviews on the Rotten Tomatoes site gave Justice League a favorable score.
Fans have speculated that they’d enjoy Snyder’s model better. #ReleaseTheSnyderCut turned into a trending hashtag beginning in 2017 and stayed popular globally. Supporters even purchased a billboard in New York’s Times Square in October 2019 to market their origin.
“The lovers have requested, and we’re thrilled to finally send,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of AT&T Inc’s Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer department, which will start HBO Max on May 27. HBO Max will contend with Netflix Inc, Walt Disney Co’s Disney+ as well as other subscription video services vying for online audiences.
