Warner Bros. have announced that the much anticipated Zack Snyder version of the DC universe Justice League will get a release on HBO Max in 2021.
It has become movie folk law that the version of Justice League that was released in 2017 was directed by Zack Snyder but due to personal reason he left the project before reshoots and editing and Joss Wehdon finished the movie.
When released the film was met with muted reviews, with some fans even hating the movie.
Since then there has been first rumours then evidence, then sort of confirmation that a version of the movie exists that was finished by Snyder himself.
A social media campaign has been going since to #releasethesnydercut appearing in the trending box on twitter on regular occations.
HBO Max is a new streaming service coming on May 27th, and here we are a week before the launch and Warner Bros. announces the almost legendary film will show on the service in 2021.
The news was given during an on-line participation by Snyder on Man Of Steel and it was received with massive appreciation from fans.
This is an interesting move and perhaps not a good one, with cinemas across the globe closed and wondering if they will ever recover this could have been a nice shot in the arm the industry may need.
Instead it will go to the platform which is in the short term going to damage the cinema industry, I hope we never get to a point when we don't have movie theatres to go to.

Top films globally in 2017: Beauty and the Beast top the global box office in 2017
2017 at the global box office was a story of remakes, sequels and superheroes where a beauty and a beast in live action was the top film of the year while the 8th Furious film wasn't far behind.
Beauty and the Beast, the live action version, was the top at the global box office during 2017 helping Disney to be, by a long way, the biggest studio of 2017 with 6 of the top 10 films coming from the mouse house.
Universal also did well in the runner up spot with Fast and Furious 8 and Despicable Me 3 at 2 and 3 as the long established series bucked a trend of diminished returns for sequels throughout the year.
Warner did well with the DC cinematic universe and the horror hit IT filling in the lower end of the list although Justice League failed to make the top 10 (although it is still on general release at the end of 2017).
Here is the top 10 films of 2017 across the globe.
19th December 2017
No Surprise on this weeks UK box office that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the top film, its more of a case of what numbers did it manage.
With less anticipation it didn't do as well at Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but it did better than last years offshoot Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
A £28 million opening is the 3rd highest in the UK evert after the previous Star Wars and Spectre, time will tell what the final gross will be but with mixed reviews it will most likely be around the £90 million mark and be a top 5 top film in the UK.
Paddington 2 falls to number 2 while Daddys Home 2 is at number 3.
Wonder is still doing well at number 4 with Justice League falling to number 5 this week.
