Zack Snyder has made a significant impact on the DC Extended Universe over the past few years. His visual and narrative approach stood out in films like Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (2013), where he explored the moral and psychological complexities of iconic characters like Batman and Superman. Snyder not only sought to expand the DC universe but also delve into the motivations and internal conflicts of his heroes. However, his most talked-about project within this franchise was Justice League.

In 2017, Snyder stepped down from directing Justice League due to family issues, leading Joss Whedon to complete the film. The resulting version did not fully meet the audience’s expectations, who were anticipating the epic union of heroes like Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and Flash. Although the movie had some notable aspects, the reception was mixed, with criticism towards the direction and tone compared to the established DC cinematic universe up to that point.

Nevertheless, this moment marked the beginning of a fervent campaign by Zack Snyder’s fans to release his original vision of the film. This initiative gained momentum over time and culminated in the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League in 2021. This extended and reedited version, released directly on streaming platforms, presented a deeper and more extensive narrative, capturing the attention and excitement of DC fans worldwide.

Recently, the filmmaker posted a photo of Ben Affleck as Batman on his social media, accompanied by a message suggesting that his followers might finally have the opportunity to see his vision on the big screen, as it was originally only released on HBO Max. In his words: «Want to see Zack Snyder’s Justice League on the big screen? Stay tuned for a date.»

While there is no further information at the moment, we will have to wait for future updates regarding this possible theatrical release. Additionally, Snyder currently has a partnership with Netflix, where he recently released two installments of his space epic Rebel Moon and will soon launch his animated series titled Twilight of the Gods. Stay tuned for more updates on Zack Snyder’s potential theatrical release of Justice League.
