After years of anticipation and fan-led campaigns, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is now streaming on HBO Max. The thrilling DC superhero flick arrives three and a half years after the Joss Whedon-completed version landed in theaters, and the “Snyder cut” premieres as an HBO Max exclusive.

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.”
