Warner Bros. reportedly regrets releasing Zack Snyder’s Justice League last year.

The unthinkable happened back in 2020 when it was announced that Warner Bros. would release Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League following the vocal online movement going on for years. The DC film hit HBO Max last year to favorable reviews and was a major victory for some fans.

Should The Snyder Cut Have Been Released?

Reports have also come out since that Zack Snyder went over budget with the additions made to the film and that bots played a major role in the fan campaign. The movement has also sparked others for films like David Ayer’s Suicide Squad cut and Batgirl. An old regime was in place back when the Snyder Cut was released, and per Variety, the studio isn’t too fond of the move in hindsight:

“Privately, studio insiders have lamented that “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” never should’ve happened. Rather than quiet the unceasing online campaigning to #ReleasetheSnyderCut, the four-hour HBO Max feature only further entrenched the vocal and extremely online “Snyderverse” fanbase in opposition to the leadership at the studio in general and at DC in particular.”

Here is the synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:

“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”

Both versions of Justice League are available to stream on HBO Max. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of the DC Universe and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
