Justice League Batman and Flash

It's been a long wait for hardcore Zack Snyder fans to finally get their wish of seeing the director's original vision of Justice League come to life, with the layers of Joss Whedon and Warner Bros. changes scraped away.

The film is only a month away now with the release set for March 18, exclusively on HBO Max in the US. As that date moves ever closer, more details are beginning to emerge regarding the plan for the streaming debut — including confirmation of a simultaneous release globally across a variety of platforms and services .

The Australian method of release for the film has finally been revealed, but possibly more interestingly, this has seemingly confirmed the exact release time for the film on HBO Max.


As reported by Screen Watching podcast host Dan Barrett, Zack Snyder's Justice League will debut on streaming service Binge and cable television provider Foxtel in Australia.

The regional announcement revealed the film will debut on the services on March 18 at 6pm AEDT. Given Snyder's previous announcement of a simultaneous global release, this confirms the long-anticipated cut will release at 2:00 am ET on March 18 on HBO Max in the U.S. This also means that the Snyder Cut will actually drop on March 17 at 11:00 pm on the Pacific Coast of the U.S.


In an exciting move for everybody outside the United States, international fans will be treated to a simultaneous release — with only a few exceptions .

This move will prove great for all fans as it will help to minimize spoilers, although hardcore fans will want to avoid social media until they get a chance to watch as it's certain to be a viral discussion.

The March 18 release date lands on a Thursday, meaning many will be forced to rush off to work on the day of the debut, not getting a chance to watch until later in the evening due to the four-hour run time .

More details on specific release plans by region are likely to follow this announcement as other platforms continue to announce their exclusive rights to the highly anticipated release.

Zack Snyder's Justice League drops on March 18 at 2am ET on HBO Max.
