“I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers
for this brave gesture of supporting artists and
allowing their true visions to be realized,”
Snyder shared. “Also a special thank you to
all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality.”
“Since I got here 14 months ago, the chant to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut has been a daily drumbeat in our offices and inboxes,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer.
“Well, the fans have asked, and we are
thrilled to finally deliver. At the end of
the day, it really is all about them and
we are beyond excited to be able to
release Zack’s ultimate vision for this
film in 2021. This could never have
happened if it weren’t for the hard work
and combined efforts of the teams at HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures.”
