Zack Snyder is creating a fully black and white version of his cut of Justice League, though it's unclear when and where that version will debut. Justice League has had one of the stranger journeys of any modern film; after the polarizing reaction to 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Warner Bros. began to rethink their DC Comics film plans. Midway through production of Justice League, Snyder left the production to deal with a family tragedy. Still, the common consensus seems to be he and the studio were headed for a breakup after the film anyway. Avengers director Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the film, and the resulting movie made essentially no one happy, a lumpy mishmash of the two directors' very different styles that felt nothing like the DCEU films that had come before, for better or worse. After a massive, years-long social media campaign by a devoted and occasionally obsessive fanbase, HBO Max decided to bring Snyder in to finish his version of the film, complete with an eight-figure budget and important reshoots.
