This Movie Is About.
Zack Snyder's Justice League (nicknamed the Snyder Cut) is the 2021 director's cut of the 2017 American superhero film Justice League. It presents Justice League—the fifth installment of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and follow-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (2016)—as director Zack Snyder intended prior to departing the production. Like the theatrical release, Zack Snyder's Justice League follows the DC Comics Justice League—Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and the Flash (Ezra Miller)—as they attempt to save the world from the catastrophic threat of Darkseid (Ray Porter), Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), and their army of Parademons.
Justice League, released by Warner Bros. Pictures in 2017, suffered a difficult production. Its script underwent major changes before and during production between 2016 and 2017. In May 2017, Snyder stepped down during post-production following the death of his daughter, and Joss Whedon was hired to finish the film, completing it as an uncredited director. Whedon oversaw reshoots and other changes that incorporated a brighter tone and more humor, and reduced the runtime significantly in accordance with a mandate from Warner Bros. The theatrical version polarized critics and was a box office disappointment, leading Warner Bros. to re-evaluate the DCEU's future, and to focus on developing films around individual characters with less regard for a shared narrative.
Many fans expressed interest in an alternate cut more faithful to Snyder's vision, which they and members of the cast and crew referred to as the "Snyder Cut". Although industry insiders considered the release unlikely, Warner Bros. decided to move ahead in February 2020; in May, Snyder announced that the original cut would be released as Zack Snyder's Justice League via streaming service HBO Max. $70 million was spent to complete the visual effects, score and editing, with new material shot in October 2020. The release was originally planned as both a six-episode miniseries and a four-hour film, but the miniseries concept was scrapped in January 2021 in favor of simply releasing it as a film. The film is dedicated to the memory of Snyder's daughter, Autumn.
Zack Snyder's Justice League was released on HBO Max in the United States on March 18, 2021. It became the fourth-most-streamed film debut on the platform that year. The film received praise for its direction, score, action sequences and improved character development, but criticism for its four-hour runtime.
