Zack Snyder’s Justice League Accidently Leaked on HBO Max
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is just a week away from its release, but DC fans got an early glimpse of it on March 9 on HBO Max. It so happened that the four-hour-long cut from director Snyder was made available on the streaming platform for users trying to watch Tom & Jerry (the movie). This happened because of a minor glitch, and the movie was removed within a few hours.
According to Deadline, HBO Max confirmed the error in a statement that read, “Zack Snyder’s Justice League was temporarily available on HBO Max, and the error was addressed within minutes.” Justice League stars Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) uniting to fight injustice. We will also see Jared Leto reprising the role of the Joker in this film. The teaser and the trailer of the film have been getting great response from DC fans, who are excited to see Snyder’s cut of the film.
Fisher, who will essay the role of Cyborg in the DC Extended Universe, took to Twitter and urged fans to avoid watching the leak and wait for the day of its release. “You know what beats a leak? A flood of views on @hbomax! On March 18th we’re watching #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague on repeat ALL DAY LONG!!! Who’s streaming with me??? #SnyderCut #BORGLIFE,” he tweeted.
The original version of Justice League, which released in 2017, was a major disappointment for the fans. Many petitioned to see Snyder’s version, after which Warner Bros. decided to make it happen. Snyder had stepped down midway while shooting the original because of personal issues, after which The Avengers director Joss Whedon completed the film. The director claimed that Whedon changed many scenes from the film, and his version was way better than what the audience got to see four years back.
Fans have already started drawing parallels between the original release, and Snyder’s cut from the promo videos that Snyder has been sharing online and have found differences in both the versions. The film will officially stream on HBO Max from March 18.
