With a director cut on the way, fans were left wondering why Zack Snyder and Netflix released the original version of the movie first. It would have made sense to release the director’s cut since it was a streaming platform and this is why fans of Snyder were divided against themselves.


Only Snyder and Netflix know what they are going to do with the film. At the time of writing, Rebel Moon sits at a rating of 6.8/10 on IMDB and a meager 24% on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is currently screening in theaters after which, it will be available to stream on Netflix from 21st December 2023.
