Amazon Commissions Earned
The 2021 HBO Max original “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” will officially finally be coming stateside to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on September 7th, via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The film, also known as the “Snyder Cut” was directed by Zack Snyder, featured a cast of Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Ray Fisher, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Jesse Eisenberg, Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Joe Manganiello, Ray Porter, Harry Lennix, and Jared Leto.
The tech specs for the 4K UHD Blu-ray include a 2160p 4K video presentation in the 1.33:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 form of high dynamic range and Dolby Atmos sound spanning across 2-discs for part 1 and part 2. The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with its Blu-ray Disc counterparts in 1080p HD with the same Dolby Atmos sound mix, also in a 2-disc set with 2 parts — for a total of 4 discs for the 4K set and 2 discs for the Blu-ray. No digital copy of the film will be included. Sadly, the “Justice is Gray” Black & White version of the film will not be included in either version of this release. The only bonus material set to be included with the releases will be the following feature:
- “Road to Justice League” – Director Zack Snyder reflects on his trilogy of films in the DC Universe.
You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray of Zack Snyder’s Justice League available for preorder over at Amazon. Don’t worry about the higher MSRP prices, as these will drop soon enough, and Amazon offers a preorder price guarantee. So, you’ll only be charged before it ships the amount that it is at on release day.
There will be a 4K UHD Blu-ray SteelBook release available for the film (pictured below), perhaps as an exclusive, over at retailer Best Buy where it’s now listed for preorder with the same (September 7th) release date. There also will be a box set coming to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray called “Zack Snyder’s Justice League Trilogy“ (also pictured below) that has appeared on some retailers. That set will include “Man of Steel” (2013), “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Ultimate Edition)” (2016) [likely Remastered], and finally “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” (2021). The studio [Warner] has confirmed to me that the trilogy set is indeed coming but they have no full details yet regarding it, at this time. There’s also no preorder officially yet for that set yet but stay tuned for any further updates.
