Zack Snyder says that his new cut for Justice League for HBO Max will be a completely new experience.
2017’s Justice League was a film that sadly did not work out the way everyone had hoped. The film ultimately grossed less than $700M worldwide on a $300M budget and currently only holds a 40% approval Rotten Tomatoes. A major factor that is said to have contributed to the film’s less then stellar performance was the exit of director Zack Snyder during the post-production phase due to a family tragedy. The film was heavily reworked by Avengers director Joss Whedon, causing many fans to speculate that another cut of the film exists. Earlier today, Zack Snyder confirmed that this cut did, in fact, exist and that it would be released on HBO Max sometime next year.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Zack Snyder dug into the differences between his upcoming version of the film and what audiences ultimately saw in 2017. According to the director, we saw very little of his work in that cut of the film and the new version will be a completely different experience:
“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. You probably saw one-fourth of what I did.”

Here’s the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
