It's finally happening! After years of the theatrical release of Justice League, the popular Release The Snyder Cut movement has emerged victorious. Post much wait, HBO, on Wednesday, announced that the long-discussed and debated version of the film by director Zack Snyder will arrive on the platform in 2021. The video on demand streaming platform, on its official Twitter account, shared a poster, leaving fans delighted.
The poster shared by HBO includes Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Superman (Henry Cavill), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Soon after, Zack issued a statement to the media and said, "I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized. Also a special thank you to all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality."

Justice League, released in 2017, was a major box-office disappointment. The film that was to ignite Warner Bros.’s interconnected universe of DC Comics heroes, was left undone due to production issues and Zack's withdrawal due to personal loss, if reports are to be trusted. The edition released in theatres was reshot and directed by Joss Whedon. Upset with the poor outcome, fans of Zack started the movement #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.
