Much to the surprise of, well, everyone, the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign paid off, and Warner Bros. will release Zack Snyder's Justice League on the HBO Max streaming service next year. Upwards of $30 million is being spent on finishing the film, and it's quite obvious from the director's constant Vero teases that this version will be much different to the one seen in cinemas back in November.
Right now, WarnerMedia is still trying to decide whether Justice League is going to be a four-hour director's cut or a six-part limited series, but there's quite clearly a lot of footage for Snyder to play with.
As you might expect, that means fans will get to see some characters who didn't make it into the reshot version of the film The Avengers director Joss Whedon (who hasn't landed a directing gig since) was responsible for. Some are vastly different versions of familiar faces, while others are completely new and were nowhere to be found in the theatrical cut.
It's crazy to think that these heroes and villains have been left on the cutting room floor for the past three years, but Zack Snyder's Justice League (that's the official title) promises to finally give them their due...
