Zack Snyder’s Justice League Delivers a First Look at Darkseid

Director Zack Snyder‘s vision for Justice League will finally be seen in 2021 on HBO Max but it looks like we’re in for a year of teases before its releases.

Snyder headed online to give a blurry look at his take on the classic comic character Darkseid, the villain teased in Batman v Superman and who was to take a bigger role in Snyder’s version.

It’s hard to judge this take as the image is rather far away and blurry but the shape looks right?

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut is Coming to HBO Max

Justice League Snyder Cut

Warner Bros. has announced that Zack Snyder‘s version of Justice League will debut on HBO Max. The original version of Justice League debuted in late 2017 to very mixed reviews but a very vocal group has persisted since to allow the “Snyder Cut” to see the light of day.

That fan campaign eventually spread to the stars of the film with Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher, Ben Affleck, and Jason Mamoa all speaking up to see Snyder’s version released.

The movie opened domestically with $93.8 million and went on to earn $229 million domestically, $428.9 million internationally, and $657.9 million worldwide. Snyder had to step away from the project due to family tragedy with Joss Whedon stepping in to complete the film.

Snyder said about the news:

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.

Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer is quoted as saying:

Since I got here 14 months ago, the chant to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut has been a daily drumbeat in our offices and inboxes. Well, the fans have asked, and we are thrilled to finally deliver. At the end of the day, it really is all about them and we are beyond excited to be able to release Zack’s ultimate vision for this film in 2021. This could never have happened if it weren’t for the hard work and combined efforts of the teams at HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures.

Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer at HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS and truTV added:

When Zack and Debbie shared the extraordinary vision of where Zack wanted to take Justice League, my team and our counterparts at Warner Bros. took it as a mission to solve the many issues that stood in the way. Thanks to the partnership at Warner Bros. and the relentless pursuit of the entire WarnerMax team we are able to deliver this incredibly exciting moment for Zack, the fans and HBO Max.

Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group also said in the news:

Thanks to the efforts of a lot people, we’re excited to bring fans this highly anticipated version of Justice League. This feels like the right time to share Zack’s story, and HBO Max is the perfect platform for it. We’re glad the creative planets aligned, allowing us to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.

Rumors of screening of the film has persisted with one supposedly happening for Warner Bros. executives earlier this year.

HBO Max is set to launch on May 27th.
