Want to watch the Snyder Cut? Us too. If you're hyped about Zack Snyder's Justice League after years of teasing, we've got good news - in the US, all you need is HBO Max. This unseen version of the movie is available exclusively on the streaming service from March 18 2021. As for the rest of the world, it'll be possible to watch the Snyder Cut through as-yet unnamed streaming services on the same day.

In terms of how much it'll set you back to watch the Snyder Cut, US readers are looking at a HBO Max monthly subscription of $14.99 or a six-month membership for $69.99 (a discount of 20% overall). 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 - 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.

Sadly, it's less clear for anyone else wanting to watch the Snyder Cut. Because HBO Max isn't available in the UK or Australia, for example, viewers in those countries will have to pay for view on demand via other services (presumably like Amazon or Now TV) to catch up with Zack Snyder's Justice League this March 18. We're not sure what those services are, but we should find out soon.

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.

Watch the Snyder Cut - US

HBO Max | $14.99 per month
Want to stream Zack Snyder's Justice League? It's easy. The movie arrives on HBO Max this March 18, so all you need is a standard month for $14.99. If you wanted to keep up with Warner Bros' new releases though, you can opt for a six-month membership instead at $69.99 - that's a reduction of 20%.

Stream the Snyder Cut everywhere else

Will you be able to watch the Snyder Cut everywhere 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 the UK, Australia, and beyond this March 18 thanks to other streaming services. More specifically, it's up for 'view on demand' - you pay to rent it, in other words.

The trouble is, we don't know what those other streaming services are just yet. We'll keep you informed as and when we hear more, but you can bet that the usual suspects (like Apple, Amazon, and Now TV in the UK) are going to be prime candidates.

In fact, the only countries that aren't getting the film yet are China, France, and Japan. It's unclear why, and the release date for Zack Snyder's Justice League in those regions is currently unknown.
