Back in May, Warner Bros. announced that it had plans to release Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League — a four-hour directors cut, which will be released on HBO Max in 2021.
In 2017, director Snyder left the film mid-production due to an unthinkable family tragedy so Warner Bros. hired Joss Whedon to step in and help finish the project.
When the movie hit theatres, it was clear Justice League had been made by two very different directors.
HBO Max has now offered up a 30-second sneak peek of Snyder’s cut featuring Wonder Woman’s Gald Gadot coming face-to-face with a painting of supervillain Darkseid.
Darkseid was originally Snyder’s resident bad guy, however, when Whedon replaced him, it was Darkseid’s underling, Steppenwolf that replaced him.
Once Wonder Woman spots the mural, we are taken to planet Apokolips, where Darkseid is gathering his army.
“It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie,” Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter in May, noting that he hadn’t watched Whedon’s finished product.
“You probably saw one-fourth of what I did,” he added.
“When we left the movie, I just took the drive of the cut on it,” Snyder told the outlet. “I honestly never thought it would be anything.”
According to several reports, Snyder’s Justice League cost $30 million in post-production work.
