After years of existing solely as an internet ideal, The Snyder Cut is now closer than ever to becoming a reality, as the first trailer for the project is set to debut at DC FanDome on Saturday, August 22.
Zack Snyder, the director of Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, is hard at work getting said trailer prepared, as the director tweeted a teaser image that features the scene where the Justice League confronts a newly-revived Superman.

The Snyder Cut, which is set to drop in the first half of 2021, represents one of the few pieces of movie-related good news to come about in what’s otherwise been a cursed year for the film industry.
Despite the fact that the DCEU is largely moving on from the mistakes of Justice League-past, the greenlighting of The Snyder Cut not only gives Snyder a chance to finish out his trilogy the way he intended, but it also gives fans closure, as those invested in the franchise have spent the last three years feeling ripped-off and sold-short by the theatrical version of Justice League.
The Snyder Cut, officially titled “Zack Snyder’s Justice League”, currently has no set release date at this time, although all reports indicate it could premiere in the first six months of 2021. With a trailer debut at DC FanDome right around the corner, it wouldn’t shock me if Warner Bros. and DC decided to also reveal the HBO Max release date.
