The trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League was pulled from YouTube not because of anything going on with the movie, but because of the question of music rights.
The Justice League Snyder Cut once seemed like an urban legend designed by people who were upset with the DC film’s original cut of the movie. Eventually, though, the reality came out: Director Zack Snyder has his own version of the Justice League movie that was almost totally erased when Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the film.
Ever since, fans have been lobbying for the release of the Snyder Cut for years, but it was only in May of this year that they earned a big victory. The Snyder Cut will be premiering on HBO Max next year.
However, the Justice League trailer appeared to run into an issue this past weekend. Fans noticed it had disappeared from YouTube and social media, leading some to worry that something is wrong with the film itself.
Luckily, the matter has been cleared up by THR writer Aaron Couch, who revealed the Justice League trailer has been pulled due to a music rights issue. “HBO Max has removed August’s trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League over music rights issues, but it will likely go back up on YouTube once the issue is resolved,” Couch reported, likely relieving fans who were very confused by the entire debacle.
