After debuting as a streaming exclusive for HBO Max, Zack Snyder's Justice League is now available on digital, demonstrating a lasting demand for the DCEU's biggest headache. The story of the Snyder Cut goes back to Zack Snyder's first DCEU movie, Man of Steel, and adds important context to many of Warner Bros. decisions regarding almost every DC Film since The Dark Knight Rises, making the Snyder Cut (and the idea of the "Snyderverse") one of the biggest problems for the future of the DCEU.
After directing Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder was already deep into post-production on Justice League and embroiled in behind-the-scenes creative conflicts with a number of former Warner Bros. and DC Films executives when a family tragedy resulted in him leaving the project. While Jim Lee denied that Snyder was fired, the studio's desire to take the movie in a drastically different direction, against Snyder's wishes, certainly taints the nature of his departure. In his absence, the studio hired Joss Whedon to conduct extensive re-writes and reshot a significant portion of the movie, resulting in a critical and commercial bomb, leading to demands for the Release of the "Snyder Cut."
