A new release date has been revealed for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which is now ditching the miniseries format and is set to become a four-hour movie.
There have been a lot of developments in the world of Zack Snyder’s Justice League as of late. The DCEU movie that was once something of an urban legend now has a release date, synopsis, trailer and three new posters to its name.
The “Snyder Cut” of Justice League will debut on the WarnerMedia streaming service, HBO Max, on March 18, 2021. However, now we know which version of the movie we will be getting as it has now been revealed that it will in fact be a movie – and not a four-part miniseries.
What can we expect from Zack Snyder’s Justice League?
As reported by The Illuminerdi, the director confirmed on his Vero account that the film will no longer be a four-part miniseries event, but one four-hour-long motion picture. The revelation was the result of a fan question that Snyder answered.
Although undoubtedly a long viewing experience, it’s interesting that Snyder opted for this longer cinematic format and it should make it even more of an immersive experience.
Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) and his army of Parademons was the prime focus of the theatrical cut of Justice League released back in 2017. While the basic structure of The Snyder Cut plot is expected to be similar, its differences will be in the form of many additional scenes, characters (DeSaad, The Joker and Darkseid just to name a few) and alternate world-building elements missing from the theatrical release.
What is interesting is how much of the “Knightmare” vision Bruce saw back in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be featured in Zack Snyder’s Justice League as Snyder has teased that it will play quite the role in this re-release.
Another bombshell that Snyder dropped on Super Bowl Sunday came in the form of the confirmation of the release of a second trailer, as he revealed that the new promo would be released on February 14 at 9:14 a.m. PST.
