Zack Snyder directed Justice League, the 2017 DCEU film which saw many of the franchise’s heroes come together. However, the film was left in the hands of another director for the final version, and was divisive with fans. Since then, word of a director’s cut were shared, and now this movie is finally coming to the big screen.
When is Zack Snyder’s Justice League coming out?
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is coming out in cinemas on March 18, 2021.
However, if many cinemas are still closed, fans need not fear due to Warner Bros’ deal with HBO Max.
Last year, when the coronavirus ravaged the film industry, Warner Bros came to a deal with HBO Max to simultaneously release their new films.

Many directors spoke out against this decision, as big-screen spectaculars like Dune and Godzilla Vs Kong were among those being released on the small screen.
Despite the protestations, the deal was struck, which means all Warner Bros films in 2021 will go to the platform.
Zack Snyder confirmed this on Twitter, saying: “Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be available worldwide in all markets on the same day as in the U.S. on March 18 via on-demand, digital download, linear, or streaming.
“Platform availability will depend on each territory (with the exception of China, France, and Japan, where the release dates are TBD). Additional details for specific markets will be shared soon.”
In the UK, it is unclear whether the film will be released on a streaming platform, though Warner Bros earlier DCEU release, Wonder Woman 1984, was released on Sky Movies a month after the USA, so it may be this is the case for the new director’s cut.
Who is in Zack Snyder’s Justice League?
The cast is much the same as the original Justice League, with some extra names.
Ben Affleck is Batman, while Henry Cavill plays Superman and Amy Adams is Lois Lane.
Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher is Cyborg and Jason Momoa is Aquaman.
Ezra Miller plays The Flash, and J.K. Simmons plays Commissioner James Gordon of the Gotham Police Department, and Ciarán Hinds plays Steppenwolf.
A number of other actors, including Jeremy Irons, Amber Heard, Diane Lane and Connie Nielsen, play supporting roles.
Extra to these names, there are more actors who, while they may have had uncredited roles in the original cut, will have greater roles in the second version.
These include Jesse Eisenberg, as Lex Luthor, Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West.
Another actor, Jared Leto, appears for the first time in the film, as The Joker, having not been included in the original cut, for which he had to take part in reshoots.
What is the plot of Zack Snyder’s Justice League?
The plot is fairly similar, once again, however, there will be extra information for fans, hopefully, explaining some of the confusion fans felt in the first film.
The official synopsis of the director’s cut reads: “Following the death of Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman and Wonder Woman recruit the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg to form the Justice League and protect the world from Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons, who seek the three Mother Boxes.”
The trailer has so far revealed similarities, however, given the changes made by Zack, it may be the plot veers off of the path fans are aware of.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is out in cinemas and on HBO Max on March 18, and UK streaming information is to be confirmed
