Man of Steel director Zack Snyder has shared another mysterious tease, though this one isn't quite as cryptic! Instead, it appears to confirm the "Snyder Cut" of Justice League is heading to theaters!

There was a time when Zack Snyder was essentially in charge of the DC Extended Universe (even if it was by default). Man of Steel was the opening chapter, while Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice expanded that shared world with the debut of several new superheroes. 

Warner Bros., panicked by the critical response to that movie and Suicide Squad, decided to change course and enlist Joss Whedon to take charge of Justice League. Believing the filmmaker behind The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron would deliver a guaranteed hit, he instead dropped a bigger bomb than anything that had preceded the 2017 flop in the DCEU. 

Years later, Snyder finally got to share his epic original vision with the world when Zack Snyder's Justice League was released on HBO Max. 

As much as many fans would love to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse, DC Studios is rebooting the franchise as the DCU with a new Batman and Superman, and probably a different Wonder Woman too. James Gunn has said he's met with Snyder, though we don't expect the filmmaker to be part of his future plans. 

However, Gunn may have found a way to ensure Snyder can leave the DC Universe on a positive note. 

The filmmaker has been teasing what many expect to be a Rebel Moon-focused Snyder Con lately, though between that Darkseid announcement video and a new photo of Superman, his DCEU work seems to be the focus. 

Now, we may have a better idea of what's to come as Snyder's latest post appears to confirm that his cut of Justice League will receive an IMAX release from April 28 - April 30. Fans have long hoped they might be able to watch it on the big screen, so this news is sure to be welcomed.

What is Warner Bros. hoping to achieve here? It may be a bid to win over #ReleaseTheSnyderCut fans disappointed with DC Studios' plans or a way of testing the waters to see if it's worth continuing the director's DCEU vision in some form (we still don't know why his sequel scripts haven't been adapted into a comic book).

@r1g0r - People blame Whedon as if it was all his fault that movie sucked. After seeing Zack Snyder's Justice League its easy to see that Whedon was tasked with an impossible job. He was basically handed a bunch of footage and told to shorten it to 2 hours. Yeah he did some re-shoots but Whedon and Snyder's versions are largely the same movie with extra 2 hours of footage added to Snyder's.

This is why Snyder's version still isn't that great. It was always a bad movie. Snyder's version required 4 hours to help fill in some gaps.

No one could have successfully done what Whedon was asked to do.

@CorndogBurglar - thank you. I'm sick of seeing Whedon get pulled through the dirt when Snyder's version really didn't fix everything.

@CorndogBurglar - I don't agree. The problem started with Warner Bros. demanding a two hour cut. I think u could cut down Snyder's Justice League to an acceptable running time of 2,5 - 3 hours and have a pretty solid movie.

I'm not saying a great movie, but probably better than the mess the theatrical release ended up being.

Snyder’s movie easily could’ve been recut into a 3 hour runtime and would’ve been better off.

The theatrical cut is laughably bad, and while ZSJL isn’t perfect, it’s night and day over the theatrical. Easy. Not sure how anyone can look at both and say they’re “largely the same movie.”

Snyder is an absolute tool. Tired of him dragging down the rest of DC.
