The power of social media has come to light yet again. The #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign, which went on for more than a year, has finally paid off. Warner Bros Pictures and HBO Max have collaborated to bring the new version of the movie in 2021. A week before releasing the new streaming service HBO made that announcement. Also, Warner Media, the parent company of HBO has produced the movie Justice League. However, The new Justice League will be produced by Zack Snyder and his wife, Deborah Snyder, along with the original crew. DC fans were yearning to see Zack’s vision of the Justice League for long, and they will now finally get it.
About the Snyder Cut
While directing Justice League back in 2017, Zack had to step down due to a family tragedy. His place was taken up by Joss Whedon, who, too, did a great job. But it was just not what the fans wanted. Zack giving out hints of his original vision with the movie only made fans crave for more. And hence, Snyder would now redirect and finish the film the way he wanted to. It is rumored that the re-production would cost the franchise somewhere between $20-30 million. Snyder’s vision of the film would only be achieved by putting in a lot of visual effects in the final cut of the movie. Actors such as Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Henry Gavil may also come in to record a few extra scenes. Although this is all but a rumor, with no news of reshoots yet, fans are already baffled and waiting.
Some more from Snyder Cut
Amidst all the teasing and behind-the-scene footage, the desperation is building in fans. The much anticipated Snyder Cut has begun preparing for its glamorous release after combined efforts and hard work of the Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max, and nothing would be left to chance. The movie, as per Snyder, does exist with little visual effects, and CGI already been taken care of. According to the Warner Bros. picture group, though there are many streaming services, HBO Max is the perfect platform to release the film. And once HBO Max releases on May 27th, it would only be a matter of time before DC puts its other series on it as well. But make no mistake, Snyder Cut was, is, and would be the most awaited of them all.
“I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized. Also, a special thank you to all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality,” said Snyder.
