After years of speculation and more 'will they/won't they' than we got from Ross and Rachel in ten seasons of Friends, it was finally confirmed yesterday that the Snyder Cut of Justice League would be heading exclusively to HBO Max.
While we have to wait until 2021 to see the director's intended vision for the DCEU's notorious misfire, this has to count as an unqualified win for fans. The #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement has remained strong in the face of skepticism and adversity with many people, including those that worked on the movie, thinking that it might never see the light of day.
Now that the Snyder Cut is no longer one of the most famous movies that never got released, it has quickly and officially transitioned into being one of the most highly-anticipated comic book movies in history.
Now that the cat is officially out of the bag, the all-new Justice League has to deal with overwhelming pressure to succeed, alongside rapidly rising expectations.
History has shown on numerous occasions that giving the audience exactly what want isn't always a guaranteed recipe for success.
I don't do social media, so like or follow me in person but please maintain a safe distance or the authorities will be notified. Don't snap me though, I'll probably break. I was once labelled a misogynist on this very site in a twenty paragraph-long rant for daring to speak ill of the Twilight franchise. I stand by what I said, it's crap.
