The SnyderCut Arrives Next Week, and The Death Threats Have Already Begun

Over the weekend I Fleeted (all I do really is Fleet now because they vanish after 24 hours) a picture of the cover of The Brave and The Bold #93. Of course the fanbase who attacks anyone who dares to call them “toxic” sprung into action.

Found this in my DMs this morning:

So because someone puts up a Twitter story (Fleet) with a picture of Martian Manhunter from 50 years ago, they deserve to die of COVID…

HBO Max Says Zack Snyder’s Justice League Arrives ‘Early to Mid-2021’

With HBO Max removing their DC catalog on a rotating basis, fans are obviously wondering how long into 2021 they’ll have to wait to see Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Today HBO Max gave a time frame when it’ll arrive without giving a specific date.

Variety spoke to HBO Max’s Sandra Dewey who said it’ll be in the first half of the year:

The eagerly awaited Zack Snyder cut of “Justice League” will bow in “early to mid-2021,” Dewey said, without committing to a date. 

There was a previous rumor that said it’ll be arriving in May 2021, and that does land in the “early to mid” range that HBO Max gave today. Perhaps we’ll hear more at DC FanDome on August 22nds.

Jason Momoa Releases the First Footage From Zack Snyder’s Justice League

We know Zack Snyder is bringing the Snyder Cut to DC FanDome in August, but today Jason Momoa released the first footage from the cut on his Instagram.

It shows Diana with a torch looking at some ancient paintings on the wall, one of which is Darkseid:

Zack Snyder confirmed a few weeks ago that he was working on a trailer for his cut of Justice League. It’s possible this clip is from that trailer, and we’re probably going to see the full thing at DC FanDome, and Snyder has confirmed footage is coming at the event:

Zack Snyder Confirms His Participation in DC FanDome

Those who were thinking that we would see something from Zack Snyder’s Justice League at ComicCon@Home will probably not like to hear this. We’ve already seen that James Gunn and the cast of The Suicide Squad would be there, James Wan and Jason Momoa will be doing an Aquaman panel, and now Snyder has confirmed he’ll participate as well.

Zack Snyder announced via Twitter that he’ll be at DC FanDome:

Snyder previously confirmed that he was working on a trailer for his version of Justice League. It’s very possible that we’ll see that trailer debut at DC FanDome on August 22nd.

Zack Snyder Confirms Dick Grayson is the Dead Robin in the DCEU

For a long time it’s been suspected that Dick Grayson was the dead Robin in the DCEU, as there was a “Grayson” headstone in the graveyard near Wayne Manor on the set of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. While there is some confusion based on comments about Suicide Squad that said it was Jason Todd, today we have confirmation it’s Dick Grayson.

Zack Snyder confirmed on Vero today that it is indeed Dick who was killed by the Joker and Justice League would’ve had a hint about it:

Everyone who reads DC Comics knows how one of the higher ups there who is no longer with the publisher (no, not Geoff Johns) famously hated Dick Grayson so much that it was almost a meme. Was it his idea to off Grayson or Snyder’s?

Zack Snyder Shares a New Image of Darkseid from Justice League

On the launch day for HBO Max in the US, Zack Snyder has shared a color image of Darkseid as he’ll appear in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Previously he’s shared black and white images of Darkseid from early concept/vfx work, so this shot is something new:

Darkseid will play a bigger role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, as he was meant to be the overall villain the movie was building to for the sequels. He was setup in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in the “Knightmare” future where Batman sees a vision of the future where Darkseid won. That scene showed a giant omega carved into the ground, setting up Darkseid.

We’ll now see him on screen when Zack Snyder’s Justice League hits HBO Max sometime in 2021.

HBO Max’s Boss Discusses the Snyder Cut ‘It Does Not Exist, Zack is Actually Building It’

Ever since Zack Snyder’s Justice League was announced for HBO Max, the internet has been working in overdrive to cook up brand new conspiracy theories about the Snyder Cut. From AT&T forcing WB to release it, to the status of the cut, there are all sorts of crazy theories being spread around about what it is or isn’t at this time.

The chairman of WarnerMedia and the head of HBO Max, Bob Greenblatt, appeared on the Recode Media podcast this week and discussed the Snyder Cut. From what it actually is to when they decided to release it, his conversation should hopefully clear up some of those conspiracy theories being spread around the internet:

“It’s been months of discussions with Zack and the producers, to figure out how to do it. Because it isn’t as easy as just going into the vault and there’s a Snyder Cut sitting there to put out. It does not exist, Zack is actually building it and it’s complex. Including (and I don’t want to get into too much detail that we haven’t already talked about yet), but new effects shots and it’s a radical rethinking of that movie and it’s complicated and wildly expensive. Which is of course a number I won’t quote.”

When asked about the $20-30 million number he said, “I’ll just say I wish it was just $30 million and stop there.”

“It’s an enormous undertaking and very complex. We had to go to the unions and get certain things clear with them about what we were doing. Is the Snyder Cut a new movie? Or is it a recut? There’s lots of complexity that the fan doesn’t know about. And we weren’t just sitting around going, ‘Lets not talk to those fans for as long as we can. Let’s drive them crazy.’ We were actually spending a lot of time trying to figuring out how to do this, and there’s many many hurdles to jump over. Once we saw that we could do it all and figured out the right economics, which was literally in the last week, we said ‘alright lets get this news out there’.”

He was then asked if it was something they were sitting on for months and released the news as a pre-launch HBO Max “pop”, and he said:

“No. We were trying very hard to be able to announce it before the launch, because we knew it would be very well received, but we started talking about it (I want to say) in last fall. Seriously.”

So that explains why it’s costing so much money to produce Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max, they actually have to finish the cut that so many were claiming was just sitting in a vault somewhere. Also the timing of their discussions, beginning last fall, debunks the theory that AT&T suddenly forced WB release the cut this week.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Rumored to Release May 21, 2021

When Zack Snyder announced the release of his Justice League for HBO Max on Wednesday, everyone has wondered when in 2021 it would be. Even though it’s streaming on HBO Max, a summer release would be perfect for it as Warner was forced to delay The Batman to October 1, 2021. There wasn’t any hint of a release window when it was announced, but now there’s a rumor of when it’ll be releasing; and it’s exactly one year from now.

In a Facebook reply about the release Terry Fox, granddaughter of Gardner Fox the creator of the original Justice League of America, says it’ll be released on May 21, 2021:

Now, there’s no way to know how or why she knows this specifically, but the date does make sense. It’s one year from now, which is more than enough time to finish the cut, and it is a Friday and a lot of things do release on the big streaming services on Fridays. Disney uses that as the premiere date for many of their Disney+ originals. It’s possible HBO Max is planning to do the same, especially for movies like Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Gardner Fox created the Justice Society of America during the Golden Age of comic books, and then revived them in the Silver Age as the Justice League of America. May 20th is his birthday, so that would be a fitting day for them to release a Justice League movie. But right now just take this as a rumor until we hear anything official from Snyder, WB, or HBO Max regarding the release date.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Won’t Have Additional Filming and it Ends Snyder’s Story

When Zack Snyder’s Justice League was announced this week, it was unclear if the cast would be coming back for additional filming. The Hollywood Reporter said the cast would likely reunite to record additional dialog, but the question remained on if there would be additional scenes shot for things that weren’t done before Snyder left the movie originally. Well know we know.

According to The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez, there will be no additional filming for the Snyder Cut:

“There’s not going to be any reshoots of any kind with any actors,” Gonzalez said. “It’s just additional dialogue. Here’s something that hasn’t been reported yet: (Snyder) did want to shoot and he wanted to do additional photography but HBO Max said no, that’s not happening. We’ll give you money for post-production, for special effects, for scoring, and even ADR but no reshoots of any kind on this movie.”

This will also apparently be a “one and done” and won’t lead to additional movies. Meaning we won’t see the five-movie story that Snyder apparently had planned:

“This movie is basically one and done. This is to … close the loop, to finish the story. Maybe not the whole story, cause he did have like a three to five-picture plan. But this Snyder-verse, I’ll call it, will end with the Snyder Cut. Don’t expect any spinoffs for Batman or with Ben Affleck as Batman or any of that.”

This will obviously be disappointing to a lot of people, but hopefully cooler heads will prevail and it won’t spark a revolt against Warner Brothers who finally gave fans what they demanded for so long.

Zack Snyder is Working on a Trailer for Justice League and it’s Coming Soon

Fans waiting to get their first look at the new version of Justice League, launching on HBO Max sometime next year, might not have to wait too long. As Zack Snyder said it’d be a completely new version of the movie, they can’t easily just re-release one of the old trailers for the one released in theaters; meaning it’s going to have trailers created just for it. And it sounds like the first one is coming soon.

Replying to comments on one of his Vero posts this morning, Zack Snyder is asked by multiple people if a trailer is coming. To the first he said he’s working on it:

And then someone asked him if we could expect a trailer coming soon, and he just replied with an smily face sunglasses emoji:

Warner Brothers is spending between $20 and $30 million to finish this version of Justice League for HBO Max, so they’re definitely going to want to promote it with trailers. Having a trailer sometime this summer as HBO Max is launching would drive sign-ups to the service, even if Justice League won’t arrive until sometime in 2021. Imagine the publicity for HBO Max if they were able to get a trailer together and put it in theaters with Tenet in July? That’d definitely drive a lot of subs to the new service.

It also shouldn’t be difficult to get a trailer together pretty quickly. Some scenes from the original version of Justice League were finished enough to be included in the original trailers, and even beyond that there should be enough finished to cut together something for fans relatively quickly.

Whenever and however it arrives, it sounds like we won’t have wait long to get our first official look at Zack Snyder’s Justice League in the form of its first trailer.
