Probably one of the characters who took the most hits with the theatrical cut of Justice League was Cyborg, and everyone is waiting to have his story told with Zack Snyder’s Justice League next year. While Fisher had been supportive of replacement director Joss Whedon back when he was promoting the film, he had since come out to revoke his earlier statements.
I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement: pic.twitter.com/1ECwwu6TG1

While I don’t think it’s a direct attack on Whedon, he is the one who gets named in the statement. Personally, I’m not a fan of what Whedon brought to the table with Justice League, but I still don’t think he was solely to blame. If anything, it’s the higher-ups of WB who probably forced Whedon to re-do a huge chunk of the film while at the same time not giving him a delay from release.
You also have to admit that WB had no class when it came to handling Zack Snyder’s family situation, not even having any mention of Autumn Snyder when it came to the release of Justice League.
Hopefully all wrongs will be corrected when Zack Snyder’s Justice League hits HBO Max. I’ll admit, I am afraid that the film still won’t be perfect, but at least it’s going to be more faithful to what Snyder was planning Best case scenario, this brings back the original plans for the DCEU when Snyder was still in charge; at worst, it’s going to be a slightly better version of the Justice League we got (because there’s no way they could do worse than the theatrical cut).
No release date has been set, but Zack Snyder’s Justice League is set to come out sometime in 2021 on HBO Max.
