The invite-only virtual premiere of Zack Snyder’s Justice League was scheduled for earlier Monday, but outages at Microsoft delayed it.
This virtual premiere was happening via Microsoft Teams, but those who were expecting to finally see the long-anticipated “Snyder Cut” were met with an error message instead of the film.
Zack Snyder himself took to Twitter to apologize for the delay, saying, “I have no words. Still waiting for info. So sorry.”

After a six-hour delay due to Microsoft server outages, HBO Max finally began sending access codes out to those who were invited to the virtual premiere.
“We know many of you have been waiting for this moment since 2017. Today was not how we envisioned how our virtual premiere would begin, and we want to express our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience caused by this delay,” an HBO Max spokesperson wrote. “We know many of you have made special arrangements to enjoy the virtual event, and we share your disappointment that things haven’t gone as planned.
“Please note: Microsoft is still resolving issues, but we don’t want to keep you waiting any longer! If you get an error message, you may have to try different devices or browsers.”
