HBO Max content chief Kevin Reilly spoke about the announcement of the Snyder Cut of Justice League coming to HBO Max.
“We’ve been sitting on this for quite some time but working on it,”It was obviously a secret project given the high level of interest, but we were chipping away at it piece by piece. There was some strategy but also some serendipity in how we got over the hurdle of some of those issues just before the launch [of HBO Max].”
