The new version of Justice League (2017), entitled Snyder’s Cut, will premiere around the world simultaneously with the United States. Initially produced to be exclusively from HBO Max, the feature will be available in all markets via video on demand, streaming and download.
The information is surprising since many countries still do not have access to HBO Max. According to WarnerMedia, the streaming service will only arrive in Latin America in June this year – which makes the film debut in Brazil even before the platform.
Who revealed the novelty was Zack Snyder, director responsible for the project. The filmmaker had been linked to the film since the beginning of production, but left office after a family tragedy. Joss Whedon was hired to take the position, but the end result was widely criticized by the press and the public.
Since then, Snyder’s loyal fans have run a huge social media campaign asking the director to have the opportunity to show his version to the public. Warner Bros. he accepted the wish and gave the go-ahead for production to happen.
The Snyder’s Cut will be four hours long and will feature many extra scenes that did not make it to the final cut shown in theaters. The director also captured additional material in late 2020, which featured stars such as Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher and Amber Heard.
Among the new faces are Jared Leto (Joker) and Joe Manganiello (Exterminator). While the first did not appear in the first version, the second only showed up on the post-credit scene. Some fans still speculate that Jesse Eisenberg may also return as Lex Luthor.
In contact with the report of TV News, the HBO staff denied that Liga da Justiça will be available in the channel’s catalog in Brazil.
