Zack Snyder has announced that his cut of 2017’s Justice League will be released next year on HBO Max. Snyder originally led the film, but was forced to step away because of a personal tragedy. From there, Joss Whedon stepped in and took over. Unfortunately, the film was not received well and did not perform very well at the box office. Snyder hopes that the new cut with a reportedly darker ending will be received better than the original.
“I always thought it was a thing that in 20 years, maybe somebody would do a documentary and I could lend them the footage, little snippets of a cut no one has ever seen,” Snyder said.

“It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie,” he added.
HBO Max will debut next Wednesday, May 27, 2020. However, the new cut of the 2017 film does not yet have a specific release date.
