It’s already one of the most highly-anticipated films of 2021, and it looks like Justice League fans won’t have much longer to wait for the Snyder cut. The director appeared to reveal that the film will be available for fans to watch in March. In an exchange with a fan on Vero about the 2017 version of the film, Snyder told them that he understood and respected their feelings about the movie — although he hopes “I can wipe that version out of existence with what you see in March.”

Neither Snyder or HBO Max or Warner Bros. have officially confirmed the release just yet. However, the rumoured release date comes as Snyder revealed he had had a gut feeling that the new film will “probably” be rated R.
He recently told EW:
“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. We haven’t heard from the MPAA, but that’s my gut.”
He added that he felt that, if the film did get an R-rating, it would be due to “violence and profanity, probably both”, citing the fact that “there’s one scene 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.”Last month, the first look at Snyder’s version of Steppenwolf was shared with fans — and so was a new trailer, which revealed more of Superman and of Darkseid.
It was announced over the summer that the Snyder Cut of Justice League will be heading for HBO Max in four one-hour instalments, During DC FanDome panel, the director told everyone that while the film will be released in four one-hour parts at first, it will then be turned into a mammoth four-hour film.
