There’s a ton of information to digest there, but right away we noticed that Kilar just very coyly revealed a release window for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, promising the highly-anticipated project “in a few months.” This comes hot off the heels of the industry-shattering news that WB plans to release its entire slate of blockbuster films in theaters and on HBOMax simultaneously, including Duneand The Matrix 4. Comic book and sci-fi nerds around the globe are smashing that subscribe button as we speak.
So what does “in a few months” mean? Well, we know that Snyder has been hard at work on the project since at least its official announcement in May of this year, doing post-production work and even some additional filming in September of this year to complete his vision of the movie. (Although Snyder has confirmed that the reshoots will only amount to about 4 minutes of new footage.) It’s likely the movie is close to finished, which means it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect it sometime in the spring. Considering Kilar’s comment, I’m going to peg Zack Snyder’s Justice League (and bear in mind this is pure speculation based only on what we already know about the project) to hit HBOMax sometime in April 2021. If you haven’t seen the trailer, it’s worth a look, as it contains a good amount of never-before-seen footage.
The huge announcements made by WarnerBros. indicate that the studio is going all-in on HBOMax, suddenly making the platform a serious streaming contender to giants like Netflix and Disney+. Right now, the question isn’t whether or not the other major studios will follow suit, but when.
