Though it’s been three years since the release of the film, fans are still adamant that they want to see Zack Snyder’s original cut of Justice League. While updates have been scarce about #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, we just got some big news according to the cut’s future.
As per Heroic Hollywood, a source had revealed that Snyder had recently held a private screening of the movie back in February for WB executives. HH writes:
It seems like a recent screening of the film could lead to a wider release. Heroic Hollywood has exclusively learned and confirmed that Zack Snyder held a private screening of his cut of Justice League in the first quarter of 2020, with executives from DC in attendance. According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, something is happening with Snyder’s cut of the film, and discussions are currently underway.
With film productions currently shut down right now, there’s going to be a mad scramble for releasing content in the next few months. Netflix has been going on swimmingly with the release of their films, and HBO Max being a new platform is in dire need of new content—which Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League can very much fill.
If anything, the cut of the movie is said to be done, and the only thing needed right now is VFX touch-ups. With a supportive fanbase and nothing to publish, it would make sense for WB to take what they can get.
Of course, this is all just speculation for now. I would want nothing but for the original plans for the DCEU to push forward, and if the Snyder Cut is a step in that direction, by all means, go for it, WB.
For now, HBO Max is set to launch on May 27.
