If you already know what Snyder Cut is, you are a true DC fan. But if you don’t, here is synopsis before kicking off to other things.
What is the Snyder Cut?
Recently, DC fans woke up to a trend that spread over Twitter like wildfire. Tweets chanted the same hashtag all over the world: ‘Release the Snyder Cut’. But what is the Snyder Cut? 2017 was the year DC and Warner Bros gave us a movie packed with superheroes. But despite the huge cast, Justice League failed to impress the viewers. The end product was downright disappointing considering the hopes of fans.
So when fans realised that the original director of the movie, Zack Snyder, had left just before the final touches to the movie, they demanded the release of ‘The Synder Cut’.
Does the Snyder Cut really exist?
Yes. Despite many framed it as an illusion, it exists. It might not be a visually-refined version of the Justice League movie, but yes, it still exists. Director Zack Snyder himself keeps posting behind the scene images and clips. But a much stronger proof comes from Aquaman actor Jason Momoa.

Snyder Cut is coming to HBO Max
The Snyder Cut will never see the silver screen. But it will surely be released in 2020.
And HBO Max would be the platform that gives ‘The Snyder Cut’ the much-deserved place for streaming.
Well, it is a give-and-take relationship. While HBO Max is going to give The Synder Cut a platform, it will also get a much-needed promotion before it launches in May 2020. So when exactly would the much-much-awaited version of Justice League see the light of the day?

The streaming service goes live in May. And if they really want fans’ interest to be at their height, they would not delay The Snyder Cut’s release for more than a couple of months. It would also be the perfect time for another reason. Marvel will start with Phase 4 as Black Widow hits the silver screen in May 2020. This would be a golden time to give DC cult followers something to cherish.
But as soon as the cut is released, HBO Max would need more projects to earn loyal viewers.
HBO Max vs Disney Plus is a future Superhero war script in the making
Disney Plus has become a full-fleged hub of Marvel TV shows. So much so that Marvel has shut down a unit—Marvel TV—that should have been what Disney Plus today is. With the advent of Phase 4, Disney Plus has got all the promotion a new online streaming platform in the already buzzing market could ask for. And the future seems equally bright.
As soon as HBO Max has given the fans ‘The Snyder Cut’, established themselves among the many OTT platforms, it will require to maintain the pace. A good call for such a time would be to collaborate with future DC movies and become the sole streaming service to release them. And yes, this possibility is not a long shot one. After all, money makes the world go round.
