‘Snyder cut’ of Justice League accidentally released on HBO Max | Justice League

The long-awaited “Snyder cut” of the superhero movie Justice League was accidentally released on streaming service HBO Max on Monday, before being removed.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, customers who were attempting to access the new Tom and Jerry movie found that instead the service played Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which is due to be released on 19 March. One user reported on social media that more than an hour of the film (which has an official run time of 242 minutes) was screened.

The new version was created after a fan campaign that began after the release of the original film in 2017, to unimpressed reviews. It starred Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, who team up to battle supervillain Steppenwolf.

Snyder, the film’s credited director, left the project in May 2017 during postproduction, following the death of his daughter. Joss Whedon, who had co-written the film’s script and directed Marvel superhero films The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, took over the and reportedly set up extensive reshoots.

After the film was removed from HBO Max, takedown notices were reportedly sent to social media users who had posted screenshots of the film.
