HBO Max Europe users are up in arms after the streaming platform suddenly removed Zack Snyder’s Justice League aka The Snyder Cut without any prior warning. The movie was released in 2021 to critical acclaim and audience approval, quickly becoming one of HBO Max’s top 10 premieres of all time. However, just over two years after its premiere, the movie has been removed from HBO Max Europe, leaving fans in Europe frustrated and confused.
Why Zack Snyder's Justice League Vanished from HBO Max Europe?
The removal of Zack Snyder’s Justice League from HBO Max Europe is particularly puzzling given that the movie is still available on the U.S. version of the platform. This suggests that the removal is not related to music licensing issues or cost-cutting measures, as both of those factors would likely affect both the European and U.S. versions of the platform.
One possibility is that the removal of Zack Snyder’s Justice League from HBO Max Europe is related to the ongoing strikes by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). Streaming residuals are a crucial aspect of these strikes, and it is possible that Warner Bros. has removed the movie from HBO Max Europe in order to save money on streaming residuals.
However, it is also possible that the removal of Zack Snyder’s Justice League from HBO Max Europe is simply a mistake. Warner Bros. has not yet released a statement on the matter, so it is impossible to say for sure why the movie was removed.
Whatever the reason for the removal, it is clear that the decision has upset many fans in Europe. Zack Snyder’s Justice League was a beloved movie by many, and its removal from HBO Max Europe is a major disappointment. Hopefully, Warner Bros. will clarify the situation soon and restore the movie to the platform.
