Me and some friends on our shows have been waiting for this news to either be confirmed or denied for months, and while I’ve had made no secret that I’m not a fan of “Man of Steel” or “Batman V Superman” I will say I am happy for my friend Zodwriter from our “PSN Radio” SHOWS “The Zodwriter Show” and “The Round Table Show” who was on the front line every week pushing for this release. He’s a big fan, and this I’m sure has him laughing as me, and “AlextwopointO” eating crow right now. But we’re not alone… Time to pull out that BBQ, Hot Sauce, and start eating that Crow guys. Looks like it’s all happening, and maybe this will open doors for future specials on HBOMax. Perhaps now this could be a sign the WB is open to maybe bringing in “SUPERMAN KINGDOM COME” with Brandon Routh!
Here is the official press from the studio…
|LOS ANGELES – May 20, 2020 – After global passionate fan calls to action and the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement, HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that it will exclusively world premiere Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of the Warner Bros. Pictures/DC feature film Justice League in 2021.

#ReleaseTheSnyderCut first became a passionate rallying social media cry among fans in 2017 and has not let up. From countless press articles and hundreds of thousands of social media mentions, it became a powerful global movement among cinephiles and comic book fans.

At the end of the day, it really is all about them and we are beyond excited to be able to release Zack’s ultimate vision for this film in 2021. This could never have happened if it weren’t for the hard work and combined efforts of the teams at HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer.
“When Zack and Debbie shared the extraordinary vision of where Zack wanted to take Justice League, my team and our counterparts at Warner Bros. took it as a mission to solve the many issues that stood in the way,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer at HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS and truTV. “Thanks to the partnership at Warner Bros. and the relentless pursuit of the entire WarnerMax team we are able to deliver this incredibly exciting moment for Zack, the fans and HBO Max.”
