HBO Max has released a two-and-a-half minute look at Snyder’s highly anticipated intended version, with Leonard Cohen’s vocals speaking for the many that jumped on the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut mission since it began: “Hallelujah, hallelujah” indeed.
There’s a good amount of new footage to chew on (hello, Darkseid), plus some familiar moments from the theatrical cut that have different spins to them. The trailer showcases Snyder’s less colourful grading and a much more somber tone overall than what was delivered with the Joss Whedon-completed film. Plus, there’s the 1.66:1 aspect ratio, which Snyder has expressed his desire to release the new cut in.
When the film hits HBO Max in 2021, it will be doing so essentially as a mini-series. The cut will be clocking in at four hours and split in four parts, although, as Snyder said during DC FanDome, “We’ll find a way of bundling it all together at the end.”
As of yet, there’s no release date for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, nor is there much to go on regarding where it will be heading for the countries that HBO Max hasn’t managed to hit when the film is released. “We’ll find a way for you to see it,” Snyder said. Of course they will. In Australia, it may end up with Foxtel, which has a distribution deal with HBO.
In the meantime…
