It’s been a long time coming and might be seen as a resounding triumph for the dedicated fans who were determined to see Snyder’s original vision for the DC Extended Universe blockbuster. After the director dropped out of the production, Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the Justice League movie but its 2017 release was overshadowed by underwhelming box office returns, and fan and critical discontent. Snyder has been giving interviews recently about the upcoming four-part reboot but had been careful to avoid spilling release date details – until now.
The director was chatting with a fan, discussing the previous theatrical big-screen release.
Not only did he let slip the new version’s release date, but he also made his feelings very clear about the contentious hybrid of his and Whedon’s work which Warner Bros released in 2017.
Snyder said: “I understand and of course respect your feelings and I just hope I can wipe that version out of existence with what you see in March.”
So, it’s official now that fans in the US have just a few months to wait to see the Snyder Cut streamed on HBO Max, but what does that mean for the rest of the world?
