Today, HBO Max confirmed “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” will be a movie, not a series, as the director recently suggested and gave the feature-length film s March 18 release date on HBO Max. The company also released teaser art for the film as well. While there was talk of a new title, “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” still looks like it’s the official title, and it’s probably not changing now.
HBO Max also revealed the official new synopsis:
In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher),, and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad,, and Darkseid,, and their dreadful intentions.
Here’s the rest of the release.
