The four-hour behemoth that’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League is gradually but definitely putting itself apart from the theatrical version published in 2017. Not just does this include new footagebut Snyder promised his cut of this movie would have sufficient “violence” and “profanity” to make an R-rating.”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,” Snyder informed Entertainment Weekly. “We haven’t heard from the MPAA, but that’s my gut.”When inquired exactly what those explicit improvements will probably be, Snyder stated, “There’s one scene where Batman drops an F-bomb. Cyborg is not too happy with what’s going on with his life before he meets the Justice League and he tends to speak his mind. And Steppenwolf is pretty much just hacking people in half.””So [the rating would be due to] violence and profanity, probably both.”

Snyder showed he is also in discussions with Warner Bros. to launch the superhero outfit blockbuster in theatres, in addition to about the WarnerMedia-owned HBO Max. “I’m a huge fan and a big supporter of the cinematic experience and we’re already talking about Justice League playing theatrically at the same time it’s coming to HBO Max.”But he criticized Warner Bros.’ stunning decision to release its entire slate of films in 2021 on HBO Max the same day as theaters.”It felt just like a fairly daring move and maybe the response was not 100 percent thought out,” Snyder said. “I feel as if there is a whole lot of people panicking during COVID. I expect that, in the long run, that is what this was — some type of knee-jerk to COVID rather than some type of higher move to interrupt the experience.”

In 2017, Snyder departed Justice League after a family tragedy, leaving Joss Whedon to finish the film. Fans unhappy with the result campaigned for a Snyder cut and in early 2020 WarnerMedia decided to take on the project — with the visual effects, score, editing and additional shooting adding up to a hefty $70 million. New footage includes Affleck and Fisher, with the final product to be released as a “four-part event collection.”Zack Snyder’s Justice League is defined to strike HBO Max (and potentially theatres ) in 2021.
