The DC Extended Universe is in full swing in working to unveil a couple of their most anticipated new projects, both canon and non-canon. Wonder Woman 1984 is fully into its promotional tour as it gears up for release in select theaters and on HBO Max on Christmas Day, and Zack Snyder is working hard to prepare the Director’s Cut of Justice League for its own HBO Max release in 2021.

Snyder has pulled back the doors on his process numerous times over the past few months by breaking down his trailers and teasing new plot points in his four-hour cut. He has also provided status updates on how far along he is into making the series, including a new one just revealed on his Vero account,


In a new update on Vero, via Twitter, Justice League director Zack Snyder shared that he is currently working on sound editing for the Director’s Cut of Justice League before its release on HBO Max in 2021. Snyder includes a picture of the editing room, highlighted with a huge screen with the words “picture start” adorned on it.

Even though this doesn't give any indication as to when the Snyder Cut will debut on HBO Max, it's an exciting sign that Snyder is this deep into finishing the series. Final shooting was reportedly completed just a few weeks ago, and Snyder now has all the post-production work to dive into such as editing, sound mixing, and special effects.

After so much backlash that came from the theatrical cut of Justice League in 2017, DC fans all over the world clamored to see what Snyder's true vision of this film should have been, and it was finally green-lit in late April. Snyder has teased so many changes to how the team's characters will be shown off on screen, as well as inclusions of villains like Jared Leto's Joker and Ray Porter's Darkseid, and it should all be explored more deeply than ever in this four-hour epic.

The Snyder Cut of Justice League will reportedly release on HBO Max within the next few months.
