Zack Snyder’s so-called “Snyder Cut” of the 2017 DC superhero movie “Justice League” will hit HBO Max on Thursday, March 18, WarnerMedia said on Friday. Three new posters were also released promoting the highly anticipated four-hour-long re-release. Readers can find those at the bottom of this story. Snyder was given $70 million from Warner Bros. to remake parts of the years-ago release and re-edit it into what the director says was his original vision for the film. Snyder left during post-production and reshoots following the death of his daughter. Joss Whedon came on board to finish the film. Officially (re-)titled “Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” the March release will be accompanied by a soundtrack from WaterTower Music, a new consumer products line in the DC Comics shop and even “a first-of-its-kind, immersive, at-home dining experience in the U.S. and UK with Wonderland at Home.” Also Read: Zack Snyder 'Has No Plan' to Make More DC Movies After 'Justice League' For our international readers, “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” will premiere March 18 on HBO services in Europe across the Nordics (Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland), Central Europe (Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia, Poland, Montenegro and Croatia), Spain, and Portugal as well as on the HBO Go service in Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan). In Latin America, the title will premiere exclusively on HBO Max when the service launches there later this year. The release plans for other regions will be announced at a later date. In “Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions. Whedon’s cut failed to impress critics and fans, who rallied behind a campaign to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.

Two years after departing the role, Henry Cavill is in talks to once again portray Clark Kent/Superman in films based on DC Comics, insiders with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.The extent of Cavill’s return to the role — whether just for additional work to be done for the upcoming “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” or for appearances in future films — has not been disclosed.The British actor first appeared as the superhero in 2013’s “Man of Steel,” followed in 2016 by “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and in 2017 by “Justice League.” He was set for further appearances in DC Comics movies, including a planned cameo in “Shazam!” but was instead abruptly let go from the job in late Summer, 2018.At the time, insiders said Warner Bros. was rethinking its strategy for DC Comics movies, moving away from the shared universe approach and toward standalone films. And indeed, just a few months after Cavill departed, so did Batman actor Ben Affleck, and the planned standalone “The Batman” was retooled to focus on a younger version of the character played by Robert Pattison.Also Read: Will the 'Justice League' Snyder Cut Actually Deliver What Fans Asked For?However, the larger context was that up to that point, with the exception of “Wonder Woman,” DC’s attempt to create a competitor for the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a critical dud. And while the movies weren’t flops, each one, again with the exception of “Wonder Woman,” earned less than the previous installment. But “Justice League” suffered from particularly public problems. In May, 2017, several months into post production — and just six months away from release — director Zack Snyder stepped away from the film after his daughter died, and WB hired “The Avengers” director Joss Whedon to ‘finish’ it.Whedon oversaw not just post production work however, but also weeks of unscheduled reshoots involving the entire main cast, and a recut that appears to have dramatically changed the original story. The end result was a confusing and often ridiculed movie featuring an unintentionally hilarious looking Superman, thanks to the fact that Cavill had grown a mustache for another film and the CG used to edit the mustache out of “Justice League” only kind of worked.Things change, however. At the end of 2018, “Aquaman” became a billion dollar juggernaut, while 2019’s “Shazam!” and 2020’s “Birds of Prey” were both critically acclaimed cult hits. But more relevantly, DC movie fans coalesced around the social media movement “Release the Snyder Cut,” which sought to pressure WB into releasing a version of “Justice League” much closer to whatever it is that Snyder had in mind.Also Read: TheWrap-Up Podcast: Holland Taylor Talks 'Hollywood' and a Look at How ReleaseTheSnyderCut Came to LifeThose efforts paid off last week when WB announced that something they’re at least calling “The Snyder Cut” will premiere in 2021 on the company’s upcoming streaming service, HBO Max. No word how Cavill will be involved but hopefully this time they lock down being clean shaven into his contract.Cavill currently stars in Netflix’s “The Witcher” and plays the role of Geralt of Rivia.Cavill is repped by WME, manager Dany Garcia of the Garcia Companies and Gang, Tyre, Ramer and Brown.Read original story Henry Cavill in Talks to Return as Superman for Warner Bros At TheWrap

Joss Whedon was hired to finish editing the film and also did reshoots with scenes he wrote himself.ReleaseTheSnyderCut pic.twitter.com/wssMmlPqEK— Gal Gadot (@GalGadot) November 17, 2019ReleaseTheSnyderCut— Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) November 17, 2019But “Justice League” ended up being no “Avengers,” with lukewarm fan reception and grossing well below $1 billion at the box office. Since then, fans have demanded that Warner Bros. re-release the film in the original cut that Snyder intended, one that original composer Tom “Junkie XL” Holkenborg confirmed had a score composed for it before it was replaced by Whedon.“The full score is still there,” Holkenborg told CinemaBlend last month. “It’s a really great score, and it’s just there. It never goes away. We’ll see what happens in the future, you know?”As for Gadot, she is still an active part of the DC Universe, getting ready to appear as Diana Prince for the fourth time on the big screen in “Wonder Woman 1984,” set for release on June 5.Read original story ‘Justice League': Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck Join Call to ReleaseTheSnyderCut At TheWrap
