Want to watch Snyder Cut? Us too. If you’re hyped to stream Zack Snyder’s Justice League after years of teasing (especially thanks to the generally positive Snyder Cut first reactions that are pouring in), we’ve got good news. In the US, all you need is HBO Max – the movie will appear there exclusively this March 18 2021. As for the rest of the world, it’ll be possible to watch the Snyder Cut via other platforms (such as Sky in the UK and Binge in Australia) on the same day.

In terms of how much it’ll set you back to watch Snyder Cut, US readers are looking at a HBO Max monthly subscription of $14.99p/m. Although this is more expensive than the likes of Disney Plus, you’re getting plenty of content to keep you busy. Besides director Zack Snyder’s Justice League, you can binge the rest of the DC Extended Universe – including the recent Birds of Prey film starring Harley Quinn – or go back to Christian Bale’s version of Batman with the Dark Knight trilogy. In addition, everything slated for 2021 from Warner Bros. will be arriving on HBO Max and in theaters at the same time.

The price will vary for international viewers depending on their region. As an example, anyone based in the UK and Ireland will find the movie exclusively through Sky (you can see the available bundles here). That includes the Now TV Sky Cinema Pass, priced at £11.99 per month in the UK or at a reduced €7.50p/m for the first three months if you’re watching from Ireland. Meanwhile, Australia will find the movie on Binge as part of its $10p/m subscription.

Wondering what makes this version of the movie different? While we got a theatrical release of Justice League in 2017, Snyder’s departure from the project resulted in reshoots that gave us something very different from his original vision. This new cut allows him to offer the story he’d planned from the start, and it’s estimated to include 75% unseen footage. So even though it brings us a similar plot of Batman and Wonder Woman forming a team to protect the world from invasion, it’s stuffed with new scenes and designs that were left on the cutting room floor.

Will you be able to watch Snyder Cut anywhere else? Yes. Even though HBO Max can only be found in the US right now, Zack Snyder’s Justice League will still be available in Europe and beyond this March 18 thanks to other streaming services. More specifically, it’s up for ‘view on demand’ if you’re not based in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia, Germany, or Austria – you pay to rent it, in other words.
