Earlier this month, iTunes announced that Justice League‘s release date was January 30th before changing it to February 23rd, and then removing the release date altogether. Now, both iTunes and Amazon have confirmed that the film will be available to download on February 13th. The timing seems a bit unfortunate though, as one of the most anticipated films of the year, Marvel’s Black Panther hits theaters only two days later.
Justice League debuted to a mere $654 million worldwide–which is disappointing compared to Wonder Woman’s $821 million worldwide. This makes Justice League the lowest-grossing film in the entire DC Extended Universe. Due to the extremely mixed reactions from critics and moviegoers everywhere, fans of the film have wondered if Zack Snyder’s cut would have been better. And while nobody knows if Snyder’s cut even exists, fans have launched the Twitter hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, a Change.org petition and website.
The Walmart-exclusive Justice League Blu-ray bundle is now available for pre-order, and fans were quick to notice a sticker on the cover that says: “Includes Bonus Scene not seen in theaters”, which seems to make it clear that a director’s cut will not be included. An official announcement from Warner Bros. confirming the release date from iTunes and Amazon should be coming soon.
