The legendary, unreleased version of the 2017 superhero film ‘Justice League‘ is finally releasing on Warner Media’s HBO Max in 2021. Director Zack Snyder announced the news on a live Q&A on Wednesday after a virtual screening of his Henry Cavill-led Superman film ‘Man of Steel’, reported Variety.

Fans have long said that the widely criticized ‘Justice League‘ director’s cut was terminated by director Joss Whedon, when Snyder departed during production. The American director had completed most of the work on the super-hero film in 2016, but moved away from post-production and editing following a family tragedy. Warner Bros. brought in The Avengers director Joss Whedon to step into Snyder’s shoes for rehearses and tweaks.
The Warner Bros. flick opened to discourage reviews and reportedly caused the studio a loss of nearly US $ 60 million, as it was one of the most expensive films ever made. DC fans, including actor Jason Momoa, have long waited to see Snyder’s original vision.
