HBO max trolls “Snyder Cut” fans for April Fool’s Day as the upcoming streaming services teases the release of the Zack Snyder version of Justice League on social media.
“You asked for it and we listened. We’re releasing the Zack Snyder’s Justice League as a launch title for #HBOMax on May 2020. 214 minutes in 4K resolution. He will rise. #ReleaseTheSnyderCut,” tweeted HBO Max.
Snyder Cut may still get HBO Max release
Other than the fact it’s April 1, the tweet is probably fake because Zack Snyder hasn’t commented on it on his own Twitter account or the Vero app where Snyder is more active.
The HBO Max tweet also follows Zack Snyder teasing his Justice League version this past Sunday at the end of the Batman vs. Superman live-stream watch party (where interestingly enough my article shares the same art used by HBO Max above).
“You know what, I think they should someday make a sequel to this movie someday. That would be amazing. That would really be something else. Yeah. Want to know what happens to these guys. I mean… don’t they eventually… I don’t know… Form some…” teased Snyder Sunday.
Zack also recently filled in a fan that he has more CGI work to finish, and a recent rumor even said Zack wants to film a few more scenes for his Snyder Cut.
The good news, at least, is that obviously Warner Bros. and HBO Max are well, well aware of the Snyder Cut and all its fans, which could make up a big part of its subscriber base.
Connie Nielsen, who plays Hippolyta, also recently revealed an epic battle scene cut from the theatrical version of Justice League that probably will make its way into the Snyder Cut.
