The infamous Snyder Cut of Justice League proved to be a success and is a huge improvement over Whedon’s version. After being an HBO Max exclusive, Kevin Smith is planning to bring the movie to theaters for the first time.
DC fans, comic enthusiasts, and hardcore Snyder fanboys have loved this version of the film so this is great news. We don’t know how the four-hour runtime will be received in theaters but fans of Zack Snyder’s DC won’t mind.
Snyder Cut of Justice League finally hits theaters
Famed director Kevin Smith confirmed to ComicBook.com that he would be bringing the Justice League Snyder Cut to theaters. On his Fatman Beyond podcast, Smith confirmed that Smodcastle Cinemas will be screening Zack Snyder’s Justice League sometime in 2023.
“Zack Snyder is coming in the new year, and he was like, ‘I’ve never shown Justice League in a theater once,’ so I was like ’brother, bring it!,’” said Kevin Smith.
It’s not just a typical fan screening, as there is also a planned Q and A portion with Zack Snyder himself. Snyder will be joined by Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo, appealing to both Marvel and DC fans alike.
