Instead of Tom & Jerry, the upcoming superhero flick played on the streaming service.
Tom & Jerry or Zack Snyder’s Justice League? Thanks to a HBO Max glitch on Monday, some viewers who tried to watch the former scored an early look at the upcoming superhero blockbuster instead. The flick is scheduled to be released in 10 days … oops.
“Someone’s getting fired…Tom and Jerry this is not…#SnyderCut,” tweeted Doug Bass, who was reportedly the first to notice the issue.
According to The Hollywood Reporter and others who reported the issue, hitting play on Tom & Jerry, the new live-action/CGI movie, caused an error message to appear and then Zack Snyder’s Justice League started playing. Yet when the film was paused, it said Tom & Jerry was playing.
Bass managed to get through an hour before the film was cut off. The good news for Justice League fans is Bass said the first hour was good.
“They figured it out and cut the feed but I can say the first hour or so of the Snyder cut is the best DC film I’ve ever seen,”
