However, apparently, Justice League's raw material did not satisfy the producers. After Zack Snyder left, Warner Bros. Pictures then hooked up Joss Whedon to re-shoot and handle the post-production of the film.

Joss Whedon himself, previously, was known as the director of The Avengers (2012) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Two Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films. Which incidentally is the DCEU's eternal competitor.
Joss Whedon signed with Warner Bros. Pictures in May 2017. So, he only had about six months to do the reshoot. Before the Justice League film was released in November 2017. Which, in the end, it crashed at the box office and was blasphemed by those critics.
From there, the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut emerged in cyberspace. What DC Comics fans echo. Who is not satisfied with the Justice League film by Joss Whedon.
DC Comics fans sued Warner Bros. Pictures to release Zack Snyder's version of the Justice League film. Which is believed to be better than the "Josstice League" made by Joss Whedon. That messy.
Now, after three years have passed, the demands of the DC Comics fans are finally being realized. The film Zack Snyder's Justice League, finally, is confirmed to be broadcast on the HBO Max streaming platform.
Warner Bros. Pictures itself, reportedly, had to spend up to USD 70 million for the original Justice League film project. Zack Snyder does need a lot of money to polish the raw materials he produced four years ago. In addition, he also had to re-shoot some additional scenes.
The Covid-19 pandemic, which has hit Hollywood since March 2020, was actually feared that it would threaten the Snyder Cut version of the Justice League film project. However, fortunately, the production team was able to overcome all the obstacles.
Zack Snyder revealed that when the pandemic hit, it was the right time for the visual effects team to polish the raw material for this Justice League film. Because it can be worked on while locking it in the house. In addition, with advances in technology, many stages of production can be carried out remotely.
In April 2020, Zack Snyder also contacted the main cast of Justice League to prepare for additional shooting. Gal Gadot et al, finally gathered again in front of the camera in October 2020. Which, reportedly, took about a week.
In early June 2020, Zack Snyder had revealed that he and his production team were still polishing the Snyder Cut version of the Justice League film. According to him, what was presented in the 2017 film Justice League was only a quarter of what he was working on.
At that time, the director of the film Watchmen (2009) admitted that he was very enthusiastic in developing this Snyder Cut film project. In addition, he confirmed that he would not use a single scene from the Justice League film by Joss Whedon.
Besides Joss Whedon, the names Geoff Johns and Jon Berg will certainly not be in this Snyder Cut film. Both are producers of the 2017 version of Justice League which failed in that market.
On the other hand, like DC Comics fans, the old Justice League stars also welcomed the release of this Snyder Cut film. Including, Henry Cavill. The Superman actor said he was happy. Because Zack Snyder's vision was finally realized.
Henry Cavill and Zack Snyder's relationship is quite close. Cavill's name immediately caught the eye after playing Superman in Snyder's Man of Steel (2013). Which he then continued in the film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
However, after the 2017 version of Justice League's failure at the box office, Henry Cavill's future as Superman has become unclear. In fact, in September 2018, news emerged that Cavill was leaving the role. Alias hanging his Man of Steel costume.
However, shortly thereafter, Dany Garcia, as manager of Henry Cavill, and Warner Bros. Pictures denied the news. They stated, from the start, Cavill was under contract to star in four DCEU films. And, until now, only three films have been released. So, chances are, he still has one more film to star in.
In addition, in an interview, as the cover story of Men's Health magazine's December 2019 edition, Henry Cavill also emphasized that he had never said he had left his role as Superman. "The robe is still in the closet," he said at the time.
In the Snyder Cut version of the Justice League film, Henry Cavill has undergone additional filming, on October 6, 2020, along with other stars. Including, Ben Affleck. Yang came back wearing his Batman robe.
Among the stars who did the reshoot, the most interesting one was Jared Leto. Who returns to play The Joker. Batman's arch enemy. Which appearance was confirmed in the latest trailer released last month.
In the past, it was unclear whether Jared Leto had filmed the 2017 version of Justice League. To be sure, the Joker character, which he played, did not appear in the film by Joss Whedon.
Likewise in the previous Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey (2020) film. The Joker figure is only mentioned as Mr. J, but no visible bridge.
In addition, in the soft reboot film The Suicide Squad (2021) by James Gunn, which will be released in August, Jared Leto is also not included in the cast lineup. In fact, the film again features the old stars of Suicide Squad. Like Margot Robbie and Viola Davis.
Jared Leto first played the Joker in the film Suicide Squad. Which was released in 2016. He collided acting with Margot Robbie. Who plays Harley Quinn. Who is the Joker's girlfriend.
However, even though it has its own characteristics, the Joker character played by Jared Leto seems to be forgotten. One of the reasons is because the portion in the first Suicide Squad film was not too much.
Moreover, after that, Joaquin Phoenix appeared as the newest Joker (2019). Who won the Oscar in 2020. Jared Leto's version of the Joker is sinking further.
Jared Leto himself, in an interview in 2019, actually said that he was still interested in playing the Joker. And he will definitely play it again. Depending on the scenario and circumstances.
And, this year, this hope has been achieved. Jared Leto is confirmed to return as the Joker in the Snyder Cut version of the Justice League film. We'll wait if his appearance can steal the show. Although, perhaps, the portion wouldn't be that much.
Apart from the Joker, Batman's enemy who is also confirmed to appear in the Zack Snyder's Justice League film is Deathstroke. Which again played by Joe Manganiello.
For those who have watched the 2017 version of the Justice League film until the credits title ends, surely remember that there is a post-credits scene that is quite intriguing. Which features a scene of Lex Luthor meeting Deathstroke on a cruise ship.
In the scene, Deathstroke, whose real name is Slade Wilson, says, "You better not waste my time." To which Lex Luthor replied, "Can't we make our own league?"
In the comic version, Lex Luthor is told to form the Injustice League. Which contains a bunch of supervillains. To fight the Justice League superhero gang. Led by Batman and Superman.
By the way, in terms of story, in general, this Zack Snyder's Justice League film is the same as the 2017 release of Justice League. However, even so, Snyder has emphasized that the scenes presented in this film will be a lot different.
The essence of the story, following the death of Superman in the film Dawn of Justice, Batman and Wonder Woman recruited The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to form the Justice League. Which aims to protect the world from the threat of evil creatures.
The superhero gang then faces Darkseid's followers, Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds), and the Parademons troops from Planet Apokolips. Which aims to master the three Mother Boxes hidden on Earth.
To present this story, the Zack Snyder's Justice League film, initially, will be released in the form of a four-part miniseries. Because the duration is very long. In fact, it's up to 240 minutes!
However, in the end, Zack Snyder decided to keep releasing it in full film form. Which consists of six chapters. Namely: Chapter 1 "Don't Count on It, Batman", Chapter 2 "The Age of Heroes", Chapter 3 "Beloved Mother, Beloved Son", Chapter 4 "Change Machine", Chapter 5 "All the King's Horses", and Chapter 6 “Something Darker”.
So, prepare four hours of free time to watch this Zack Snyder's Justice League film. Which will be officially released in Indonesia via the HBO Go streaming platform on March 18, 2021.
