Zack Snyder's Justice League is almost upon us, hitting HBO Max in a matter of days. It turns out we'll be getting some extra Snyder content on release day, too – a making-of documentary about the director's cut is also coming to the streamer the same day as the Snyder Cut.

Simon Firsht, who worked as a cameraman and behind the scenes DP on Wonder Woman and the theatrical Justice League, revealed on Instagram (H/T Comic Book) that a 30-minute documentary – which will include an interview with Snyder – is coming on March 18.

"The week has finally arrived for the Zack Snyder cut!!" his caption reads. "It's being released worldwide on Thursday March 18th along with a 30min documentary about the making of JL, which includes all my original 'never before seen' footage from the set and a major interview with Mr Snyder himself. I'm sooooo happy it's finally going to be seen by all the fans that have made this unprecedented event happen!! I also have the honor of lighting and filming the virtual premiere live this Wednesday 17th"

Zack Snyder's Justice League is dividing critics so far, though at the time of writing the movie is scoring 75% on Rotten Tomatoes. Initial social media reactions were also largely positive from those that have been able to watch Snyder Cut.

The good news is there's not long to wait to check the film out – it lands on HBO Max this March 18, along with the making of documentary, and the remaster of its predecessor Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
