Snyder Cut

DC will be a part of HBO Max

Regarding the Snyder Cut, it has been rumored and speculated to be getting an HBO Max release (streaming service launches in May).

Zack did recently reveal he has some of the CGI to finish, so it's unknown if the Snyder Cut will be ready by May; plus the coronavirus may have delayed things as it has recently been rumored Zack also wants to film a few more scenes.

While we wait on official news for the Snyder Cut, it's known DC will have a presence on HBO Max as a Green Lantern series has been announced in addition to an Adam Strange series, and an Aquaman animated series is in the works.

J.J. Abrams is also developing the Justice League Dark brand which may end up on HBO Max as well.

There is also a rumor of a potential Brandon Routh Superman series.
