Zack Snyder Hints at Justice League Return to Theaters

Jul 02, 2024 5:44 PM

Zack Snyder has hinted that his version of Justice League may get a theatrical release. Announced through his Vero social media account, Snyder shared a black-and-white image of Ben Affleck's Batman with the caption, "Want to see ZSJL on the big screen… Stay tuned for a date." This comes two years after the Snyder Cut released on HBO Max following a fan campaign urging Warner Bros. to release Snyder's original vision of the film. The initial 2017 version directed by Joss Whedon received mixed reviews, with critics pointing out issues in tone and execution. In contrast, the Snyder Cut, which is noted for its extended runtime and a 4:3 aspect ratio, received an 8 out of 10 rating from IGN. A theatrical release would mark a significant event for fans who championed Snyder's version.

Why did Zack Snyder leave the original Justice League project in 2017?

Zack Snyder left the original Justice League project in 2017 due to a family tragedy. Subsequently, Warner Bros. brought in Joss Whedon to complete the film, leading to rewrites and reshoots.

Zack Snyder's Justice League, also known as the "Snyder Cut," is a significant piece in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). The original 2017 Justice League faced substantial criticism for its inconsistent tone and poor execution. After a persistent fan movement, Snyder’s cut, which is more aligned with his vision, surfaced in 2021. It's popular for its darker themes, elaborate storytelling, and the extended character development that the theatrical release missed. The potential theatrical release of the Snyder Cut has generated significant excitement among fans, looking forward to experiencing the film on the big screen.
