Here's How Long Zack Snyder's Justice League Will Actually Be

There are only a few weeks left until the premiere of Zack Snyder‘s Justice League movie on HBO Max and new details about the project have been revealed.

The movie, which is split into four parts, will have a total runtime of 242-minutes, according to a report from IGN

“It was meant to be two more movies,” Zack shared, while also revealing that the new cut of the film won’t feature any material that was envisioned for the sequel.

He adds, “It hints, as you would, at a potential other world. I’d plant the seeds as I had wanted to of what would come in the later films. That’s in there, but as far as those stories that would be to come – if ever that happened, which it does not look like it would – but I think it’s easy to speculate based on that and we can talk about that for quite a while.”

Zack did tease though that fans can expect a cliffhanger.

“It is a cliffhanger… the movie ends in a massive cliffhanger,” he shared.

Just recently, Zack opened up about how much he was actually paid for the film.

Zack Snyder's Snyder Cut 'Justice League' Salary Revealed & It's Surprising!

Zack Snyder‘s “Snyder Cut” of Justice League is set to be released on HBO Max on March 18, 2021 and a Vanity Fair profile revealed some new details that might interest fans.

First, the director, who stepped away from the project after the tragic death of his 20-year-old daughter Autumn by suicide, never saw Joss Whedon‘s finished product.

“When we got to see what Joss actually did, it was stupefying,” a Warner Bros. executive told Vanity Fair. “The robber on the rooftop—so goofy and awful. The Russian family—so useless and pointless. Everyone knew it. It was so awkward because nobody wanted to admit what a piece of sh*t it was.”

“They came and they just said, ‘You can never see that movie,’” Zack recalled.

Zack also added, “I’m not getting paid. I didn’t want to be beholden to anyone, and it allowed me to keep my negotiating powers with these people pretty strong.”

A trailer for the highly anticipated re-cut of the 2017 film, set to hit HBO Max on March 18, arrived on Sunday (February 14).

The teaser also feature more of Cyborg’s, aka Victor Stone’s, storyline, which was meant to be elaborated upon in the original.

There are also new scenes with more characters like the movie’s new supervillain Darkseid, as well as added violence and profanity, bringing the HBO Max version to an R-rating.

In the film, the greatest DC heroes came together for the first time ever on the big screen, including Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

After its original release, reviews were largely negative for the primarily Joss Whedon-directed film. Zack had to drop out originally due to a family emergency, leading to fans to call for a version of the film with his original vision in mind.

Zack Snyder Reveals The Marvel Film He'd Love To Make

Zack Snyder is leaving the DC Universe behind after his Justice League movie debuts on HBO Max.

Now, the 54-year-old director has revealed in a new interview that, if given the opportunity, he’d love to make a movie based on the Marvel character, Elektra.

“I would choose Elektra Lives Again,” he shared via NME. “Do you know that Frank Miller comic book? It’s a graphic novel about Elektra. Daredevil is having these dreams about Elektra coming back to life, and it’s really cool and weird…it’s just cool, and beautiful. That’s what I would do. No one cares, but that’s what I would do.”

There has been an Elektra film, starring Jennifer Garner in the title role, that came out in 2005.

The Elektra Lives Again comic is a continuation of that story. No word on if he’d like Jennifer to return in the role though.

Just last week, Zack explained that after Justice League, he just doesn’t have time for more of the DC Universe.

“This is a years-old movie I’m working on,” he shared. “The DC universe has gone and branched off and done its own thing and that’s fine…as far as what I did and as far as what my vision for what I wanted to do with these characters and the journey I wanted them to go on, it’s well known that I planned on more movies — five movies or something — but I’m busy. I’ve got a lot going on.”

Here’s the latest that Zack has shared about the his upcoming Justice League movie, slated to premiere in March.

Zack Snyder Thinks His 'Justice League' Will Be R-Rated & Could Head To Theaters

Zack Snyder is opening up about his upcoming cut of Justice League.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the 54-year-old director teased what fans can look forward to in the HBO Max four episode event, and if it will possibly head to theaters.

“Here’s one piece of information nobody knows: The movie is insane and so epic and is probably rated R — that’s one thing I think will happen, that it will be an R-rated version, for sure,” Zack revealed to the magazine. “We haven’t heard from the MPAA, but that’s my gut.”

There is apparently footage from the cut that where “Batman drops an F-bomb. Cyborg is not too happy with what’s going on with his life before he meets the Justice League, and he tends to speak his mind. And Steppenwolf is pretty much just hacking people in half.”

“So [the rating would be due to] violence and profanity, probably both,” Zack added.

In the same interview, Zack also opened up about possibility of the extended cut heading to theaters.

“I’m a huge fan and a big supporter of the cinematic experience, and we’re already talking about Justice League playing theatrically at the same time it’s coming to HBO Max,” Zack says. “So weirdly, it’s the reverse [of the trend].”

It was announced earlier this month that most of the planned Warner Bros. movies are going to HBO Max.

Many filmmakers have lashed out at the decision, calling it “disrespectful” and “makes no economic sense“.

Zack shared his opinion on the matter, as well.

“It felt like a pretty bold move and that maybe the implication wasn’t 100 percent thought out,” he shared. “I feel like there’s a lot of people panicking during COVID. I hope that, in the end, that’s what this was — some sort of knee-jerk to COVID and not some sort of greater move to disrupt the theatrical experience. I thought we were kind of already getting very close to the ideal theatrical window where you still had marketing material out there and you hadn’t forgotten about the film by the time it came out on DVD or streaming.”

Zack concludes, “I thought we were starting to hone in on that sweet spot, but this kind of throws a monkey wrench in the works.”

Zack Snyder’s Justice League will arrive on HBO Max in 2021.

Zack Snyder Says His 'Justice League' Cut Includes Over 2.5 Hours of New Footage

Zack Snyder has some exciting news.

The director revealed that his highly anticipated mini-series cut of 2017′s Justice League coming to HBO Max in 2021 is going to be very big – more than 2 hours of previously unreleased footage.

“I am looking at the actual visual effects shots because the cut is locked, so I’m just looking at these shots everyday as they come in. It’s really exciting and I’m excited for you guys to see the giant amount of movie that you have coming your way…it is probably a solid 2 and 1/2 hours of unseen footage in this movie. I would imagine, something like that. So yeah, that’s gonna be fun for everyone to experience this for the first time,” he confirmed on Vero.

He also provided an update about Ezra Miller‘s the Flash character, saying he won’t be able to just move people around while in hyper speed.

“I know a lot of people love that aspect of it; I just don’t…I think it goes against physics. You [can] say they’re protected by the Speed Force, but that’s open to interpretation. I feel like if you grab someone at the speed he’s moving at, you could literally tear their arm out of its socket. He’s moving so fast, it would literally peel the flesh off of somebody’s body, so he’s gotta be super careful with humans inside of the Speed Force,” he went on to say.

This character is also getting a bigger role in the cut.
