Fans disappointed by 2017 film Justice League will finally be able to see the original director's vision for the movie that united several DC Comics superheroes on screen for the first time.

Zack Snyder's cut of Justice League debuts on Thursday (Mar 18) on HBO Max, a subscription streaming service launched last year by AT&T Inc's WarnerMedia. In Singapore, the film will premiere at 3.01pm local time on streaming service HBO Go, available on meWATCH. 

"This movie would not exist at all without the fans, without the fans' pressure and without their constant drumbeat and without their dedication on such a level that you can't even imagine," Snyder told Reuters in an interview.

Snyder and his wife Deborah, a producer, left the original film before it was finished following the death of their daughter. The movie was completed by Avengers director Joss Whedon and fell flat with critics and fans who thought the storytelling was disjointed and the visual effects messy.

Fans began lobbying for WarnerMedia to release Snyder's version of the film. They even bought a billboard in New York’s Times Square in October 2019 to promote their cause.

In an unusual move, the company agreed and let Snyder rework a black-and-white version that he had completed in 2017.

The new movie goes into greater detail about many characters, which includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg, and explains the motives of their enemy, Steppenwolf. Stars include Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Critics have generally applauded Snyder's version. The film scored a 77 per cent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a website that aggregates reviews, as of Tuesday, compared with 40 per cent for the 2017 movie.

The new film runs four hours and is divided into chapters of around 30 minutes each to give options for viewers watching at home, Deborah Snyder said.

"They can watch it, binge watch it all the way through or they can watch it in parts," she said.

Zack Snyder's Justice League will premiere on Mar 18, 3.01pm on HBO GO, available on meWATCH. Viewers can opt for a three-month subscription for the price of two at S$27.96 (usual price S$41.94), or a 12-month subscription at S$119.98 with a free S$10 Grab Food voucher. Offer ends Apr 15.
