Featuring a who’s who of DC’s best-loved superheroes including Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Erza Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), the Justice League that made it to theaters a few years ago was a commercial and critical disappointment, netting a mortal $658 million at the box office and receiving decidedly mixed reviews.
Many saw the creative vision for the film as compromised by the fact that two directors had worked on the project, with much of original filmmaker Zack Snyder’s work reportedly scrapped when he was replaced by Joss Whedon.
The theatrical version was not only a huge disappointment for fans of the existing DCU ‘Snyderverse’, the superhero team-up film also underperformed at the box office, bringing in just US$658 million in ticket sales – significantly less than what the standalone Wonder Woman film made just a few months earlier.
Now, fans can see for themselves what Justice League would have looked like if Snyder had stayed at the helm, with the infamous four-hour Snyder Cut just around the corner on HBO Max in the US, as well as a number of other well-known streaming services and PVOD platforms all over the world.
The wait is nearly over. Read on as we explain how to watch Justice League online and stream the full Snyder Cut movie this week.

HBO Max’s back catalog totals over 10,000 hours and, as well being the place to watch new movies like Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the service features some of TV’s all-time greats in The Wire, The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, and Friends – plus newer hits such as Euphoria, I May Destroy You, and The Flight Attendant.
