Unfortunately, there’s been no real word on international release plans for Snyder’s long awaited four hour cut of the DC superhero team up movie. Even its eventual showing on Sky is merely an assumption based on the multi-year agreement that Sky and WarnerMedia have in place that allows for HBO Max content such as the recent Raised By Wolves to show on Sky Atlantic. There’s certainly no reason to expect Zack Snyder’s Justice League won’t eventually end up on Sky for existing subscribers but several European countries including Spain, Hungary, Italy and Poland appear to have an 18th March debut for the film on VOD, according to the IMDB - interestingly, Sky TV operates in Italy.
As soon as any news is announced we’ll update this article, so don’t forget to check back.
Away from superhero dustups, Sky’s March lineup features a batch of Sky Original Movies and TV shows including the Andy McNab action thriller SAS: Red Notice and the story of Alan McGee’s decade defining Creation Records in Creation Stories. There’s also new comedy series called Bloods based around a London paramedic service.
