Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have finally come to an arrangement. It has been years since the Justice League movie was released. DC’s first super hero ensemble came and went with little praise. Having had a shift in directors during the final stretch of shooting, it would be Joss Whedon who would rework the building blocks that Zack Snyder set up. With the reputation of having directed the first two Avengers film, Whedon was seen as the only hope for the DC team. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough.
Today a new light has been cast on DC’s cast of heroes. Warner Bros. is hoping to re launch HBO Max with all their content ala Disney+. HBO Max will now serve as their all in one package unlike their previous split efforts which had the DC properties in their own subscription service. In order to offer compelling content they have caved to the constant Snyder Cut complaints and demonstrations.

For those who haven’t been following along there has been a long road leading up to this official blessing by Warner Bros. After the death of his daughter, Zack Snyder opted to step down from directing Justice League in order to mourn his loss. After the release of Whedon’s Justice League, more and more interviews between Zack Snyder hinted that his rendition of the film was far different from the official release. Several lines where quoted to Snyder from the Whedon version leaving Snyder confused seeing as how that content wasn’t in his final cut.
With the growing differences being alluded by Snyder and the cast themselves, many believed there was a different “Snyder cut” of the film. Of course there were many deniers saying it was not a complete product or that it flat out didn’t exist. With no one denying the allegation, the Snyder cut was seen as a pipe dream. It would take Aquaman star Jason Mamoa claiming he had seen the Snyder Cut on Instagram to set the internet ablaze on the cut officially existing.

A New Justice League
The Hollywood Reporter has the inside scoop on how this new Justice League deal went down and how the film will be altered to fit HBO Max’s digital ambition. The project is still undergoing its release plans with ideas on a multi “chapter” like release that would shadow a TV show’s episodic nature. On top of that, the original cast and crew are being re assembled in order to finish graphics, music and additional dialogue. According to Snyder “It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie”.
