Justice League Zack Snyder's Justice League

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is just over two weeks away from arriving on HBO Max, and Snyder has dropped some new details about his director’s cut. Snyder appeared during IGN’s Fan Fest and revealed that the film ends in a “massive cliffhaner” and that he is open to returning for a follow-up if the film is successful enough that HBO Max wants more.

Snyder also said (per CS.net) that the film clocks in at a final count of four hours and two minutes now that it’s complete, which include the end credits. He noted that the film will be released all in one go and that while there were discussions about making it an episodic release, that “got complicated.” Instead, the film is separated into chapters that provide easy spots for viewers to pause or stop and come back to.

Snyder noted, “Well, it was meant to be two more movies. [This movie] doesn’t really encompass any of the additional movies other than little… It hints, as you would, at a potential other world. I’d plant the seeds as I had wanted to of what would come in the later films. That’s in there, but as far as those stories, that would be to come if ever that happened – which it does not look like it would.”

Zack Snyder’s Justice League arrives on HBO Max on March 18th.
