The official plot synopsis for the movie reads as “Following the death of Superman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Batman and Wonder Woman recruit the Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg to form the Justice League and protect the world from Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons, who seek the three Mother Boxes.” Zack Snyder’s Justice League: Here’s How and Where You Can Watch DC’s Epic Movie Online in India From March 18!

The original movie that was put out in theatres back in November of 2017 was a product of studio mandated reshoots directed by Joss Whedon. These reshoots involved an overhaul of the plot and cutting down the movie’s runtime by a significant amount. What ended up as a result was a mess that was critically panned by both, audiences and critics on release. The theatrical cut ended up having a lot of scenes missing from the trailers, and a bunch of characters that were expected to show up got cut out from the movie. This prompted the fans to start an online campaign where they demanded WB release Snyder’s original vision of the movie.

The movement was deemed as the Snydercut. Now low and behold, a cut of a movie that was once deemed as a myth is finally releasing on March 18th under the title of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. So here are a few new characters that you can expect to show up in the movie: Zack Snyder's Justice League: Director Confirms Streaming Date of 'Snyder Cut' on HBO Max Through Intriguing Posters!
