Few movements have been more insistent on social networks than #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. The Justice League montage by Zack Snyder, who left the project in its final stages due to family problems and was replaced by Joss Whedon, he existed and fans have not stopped asking to see that darker approach than the crossover that made the DC Cinematic Universe take off.
Earlier this week we learned that Snyder had shown the montage to Warner Bros to assess the feasibility of the project, and that its theatrical release would not be a viable option for the owner of DC’s film rights. But the possibility that the film was released directly in domestic format or even through some streaming platform.
In the latter case, it is evident that it would be for HBO Max, a platform owned by WarnerMedia Entertainment and today it is finally official according to a statement from the new streaming platform that will hit HBO Max in 2021.
