Fans have been waiting eagerly for Zack Synder’s Justice League to premiere. However, on Monday, it came ten days early than expected for some of the HBO Max subscribers.
The reasons for this mishap is unknown as some users were merely attempting to watch Tom & Jerry. When users wanted to play the new CGI live-action hybrid film from director Tom Story, the upcoming movie Justice League started playing instead. The highly anticipated four-hour film from Zack Synder was due on March 18.
HBO Max made a statement after the error as they said that the movie was temporarily available on the streaming platform. The streaming service wrote, “Zack Snyder’s Justice League was temporarily available on HBO Max and the error was addressed within minutes.”
The Justice League error was first notices by user Doug Bass of Charlotte, North Carolina. He took to Twitter as he shared how he was able to view an hour of Justice League when he wanted to watch Tom & Jerry. However, when he went back to play Tom & Jerry he was able to watch the movie he wanted. Users were able to catch a certain amount of the movie in the window it was available.
Many other users also noted the problem and there have been a few revelations that we didn’t know about the movie. The upcoming movie is one of the most anticipated HBO Max movies this year. Fans have always found it fascinating as the project takes on mythic status in the years ever since Synder left the film after a family tragedy.
He came back to complete his vision more than three years after the theatrical cut was released on theatre. Zack announced it back in May and he hot several new minutes for his cut. This included a moment between Ben Affleck (Batman) and Jared Leto (Joker).
The user who found the issue, Doug, expressed his delight in being able to access an hour of the movie. He said, “I just wanted to put on Tom & Jerry for background noise while I worked, and instead I watched an hour of an amazing movie.”
“I planned to watch it after the 18th at some point,” he says. “But now I’m ready for the 18th.” On Twitter, Bass also said the footage he got to see “is the best DC film I’ve ever seen.”
