More details about Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ continue to pour in as it turns out that the new version will be released all at once.
During August 2020’s DC FanDome virtual convention, the American filmmaker revealed that the new HBO max cut, also known as the Snyder Cut, will be divided into four parts and will be released as a miniseries, per Hypebeast.
And now it seems that won’t be the case as the filmmaker just revealed to a fan on a social networking site called Vero, that the much-awaited DC Comics film won’t be a four-hour miniseries and will instead remain a “one-shot” movie, according to the publication.
Though no specific date has been revealed so far, Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ is said to release later this year and will be reportedly available in four one-hour installments.
That means fans wont have to wait for a new episode to drop each week.
Zack Snyder previously confirmed back in December that the superhero flick would likely be an R-rated film, reports Complex.
“Here’s one piece of information nobody knows: The movie is insane and so epic and is probably rated R — that’s one thing I think will happen, that it will be an R-rated version, for sure,” he said at the time. “We haven’t heard from the MPAA, but that’s my gut.”
Earlier this month, the 54-year-old director revealed that a “very small portion of the movie” will include the new scenes he shot. He further noted that he added “only two new scenes: One bit that I had really sort of hoped to shoot in post but never got the chance to and then one, that scene, with Jared. This whole little piece with Jared. The truth is, the rest of the four hours of the movie are really just what I shot,” per Hypebeast.
“The truth is I was in a struggle with the studio, you know and famously we had a lot of stuff we had to do and make it funny, and all that stuff. I just kind of, in a slightly subversive way, just kept also doing my thing at the same time so I would have, what I believed would be closer to what I wanted to do without any influence,” he continued.
“I always try to shoot that way anyway. I always try to shoot what I think is right. Putting the movie back together was like an archaeologist, pulling all the pieces, what I had, what I had shot, and what would never have seen the light of day even though I had shot it,” Zack Snyder added.
