‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ Accidentally Replaced ‘Tom & Jerry’ On HBO Max For Awhile

If you tuned in to HBO Max yesterday to check out Tom & Jerry, you might’ve been met with something wildly different from a cat ‘n mouse comedy. For a while, Zack Snyder’s Justice League played in its stead, leaking more than a week early from its intended release.

The glitch was found when a user posted about it on Twitter, and was corrected within a couple of hours. Still, I find it pretty hilarious that some family gathered together on the couch, all ready for wholesome Tom & Jerry shenanigans, only to be treated to Snyder’s post-apocalyptic Knightmare world.

As for how this happened? Nobody seems to know. Enough of the upcoming superhero film was seen that some leaks are already out there. You won’t find any of them here.

Hopefully, this won’t derail what should be the release of a new teaser centered on Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, a character we know will see his role expanded in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
