"Zack Snyder's Justice League" on HBO Max

Good news for all those fans who never bothered to see director Joss Whedon's "Justice League" (2017): Warner executives have reportedly screened "Zack Snyder's Justice League", an alternate take, extensive edit of the "Justice League" film, previously known as "The Snyder Cut" and will make arrangements to stream Snyder's finished film, with fresh VFX on HBO Max in 2021:

Snyder ("Watchmen") left "Justice League" during principal photography following a personal family matter.

Whedon of "Avengers" fame, unfortunately distancing himself from fans with his 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' was parachuted in to write/direct 'reshoots' of the film...

...reportedly only using 10 per cent of Snyder's work.

The film underperformed at the box office, earning $229,024,295 in North America and $428,900,000 International, for a worldwide total of $657,924,295. 

Fans of Snyder petitioned for the release of 'The Snyder Cut', gaining hundreds of thousands of signatures, using the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.

"Justice League" cast and crew have shown support for the film's release including Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Gal Gadot, CiarĂ¡n Hinds, Joe Manganiello...

...Willem Dafoe, Jason Momoa, photographer Clay Enos, storyboard artist Jay Oliva, DP Fabian Wagner...

...and Affleck's stunt double Richard Cetrone. 

Others supportive in the industry include Steven S. DeKnight ("Spartacus"), Damon Lindelof ("Watchmen"), Rob Liefeld (Deadpool"), Robert Kirkman ("The Walking Dead") and Jerry Ordway.

Snyder's complete film also reportedly includes an expansion of the visceral 'Knightmare Batman' sequence introduced in Snyder's "Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice".

"The truth is," said Snyder, "the 'Knightmare' sequence was always my idea...that all of that would eventually be explained and that would end up in the distant future...

"...where 'Darkseid' has taken over Earth and where 'Superman' has succumbed to the 'Anti-Life'. 

"There were a few members of the 'Justice League' that had survived in that world..."
