The next cut from the director of Zack Snyder’s Justice League It hasn’t even been released on HBO Max yet, but it already has a Blu-ray release planned for the summer. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has confirmed that the 4-hour cut of League of Justice It will be available for purchase on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray sometime in late May 2021.
Although the studio has yet to confirm an exact US and UK release date for the Blu-ray version of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, there are confirmed dates for Germany and Australia. Australia will be the first territory to enjoy Snyder Cut Blu-ray, as the DVDs will go on sale there starting May 26. This will be followed by a release in Germany on May 27, the following day.
Although there is no confirmation as to whether Blu-ray discs will come with exclusive extras as is common with Blu-ray purchases of other movies, you can surely hope for that. Reports suggest that the Blu-ray package for the Snyder Cut will contain two separate discs, one of them being the triple-layer BD-100. Since that disc is capable of storing 100GB of data, it will pack the entire 4-hour movie onto a single disc, leaving the second full of extras and behind the scenes. However, so far no such detail can be confirmed.
Information on Blu-ray.com confirms that the discs will support a high dynamic range of HDR10 along with Dolby Atmos and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 sound. Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision support for Zack Snyder’s Justice League It will also be available on HBO Max. Also, like HBO Max, the Blu-ray version of the movie will be available in the same 1: 33: 1 aspect ratio.
It’s exciting that the Blu-ray release for Snyder Cut is announced ahead of its release. Warner Bros. has changed its approach a lot this year with regards to content availability. These decisions are primarily influenced by the restrictions associated with the pandemic imposed on theatrical releases. On the other hand, many of these moves could focus on better consumer response and underwriting goals for HBO Max. Zack Snyder’s Justice League and its exclusive launch on HBO Max served as a great commercial for the new streaming platform, instantly boosting their subscription demands. On top of that, Warner Bros. eventually announced a parallel release of all of its productions scheduled for a theatrical debut in 2021, both on limited screens and on HBO Max, on the same day. This will include a theatrical release + streaming of major movies like Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Suicide squad, Y Matrix 4.
In addition to the Blu-ray version, Snyder has already finished work on the black and white edition of his film titled Justice League: Justice is Gray, for which you can proceed with the exclusive launch of HBO Max. Zack Snyder’s Justice League It’s almost here and will air on HBO Max and other VoD and digital broadcast partners in international territories on March 18.
