We previously reported that Warner Brothers did NOT ever want to release Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League – aka: The Snyder Cut. Well our sources have now informed us that something happened this week at Warner Brothers prompting them to change their mind. While we’re still being told that some did not want to cave into fan demand, apparently someone high enough up the chain has changed course and agreed to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.
Its important to note that this story is still developing… but we take our reports and our sources seriously, and wanted to correct as soon as we heard this shift in news. We are hearing that Zack is currently back in-talks with HBO Max to release a version of the film. Our sources INSIST, that our previous reports were true, but someone inside of the studio has had a change of heart regarding Zack Snyder and the cut. It could be someone higher than DC and Warner Brothers, meaning someone at AT&T who owns the studio.
If this in fact does prove to be true, then many congratulations should be sent to Zack Snyder. Against all odds, he played the long game here to finally get WB’s respect and get his cut released, after completely dismantling his cut with filmmaker Joss Whedon stepping in after the tragic loss of Snyder’s daughter. The theatrical cut of Justice League was an absolute mess, angering all fans. #ReleaseTheSnyderCut was born.
While some of his more toxic fans absolutely took the battle too seriously, I’ve been impressed with many of the fans today, who have already started forgiving us after correcting the story.
Many other film outlets online have been hearing things too, which only confirmed what we heard separately. Some film pundits have been caught deleting tweets to try and rewrite history on this, but we still stand by our source and our story… However sometimes the news and the story do in fact change, and when it does, its our responsibility to own it, and adjust it.
We will update this story as we get more information, and I’ll be LIVE tonight at 8PM EST (link below) to update you all where we stand, along with Snyder Cut expert John Aaron Garza.
