All six chapter titles for Zack Snyder’s Justice League have been revealed. Following a disappointing theatrical cut in 2017 and years of fans campaigning for the Snyder Cut to be finished and released, WarnerMedia and HBO Max announced plans to release Snyder’s version of the movie. After doing some quick reshoots that added Jared Leto’s Joker to the Knightmare sequence, the director has been working on completing a new cut of Justice League that will be drastically different from what audiences saw before.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League changes are many, but they go beyond how Snyder is restoring his original story and those character arcs. Snyder has been given complete creative control over the project after forgoing getting paid for his additional work. The result will be a four-hour R-rated cut of Justice League that maintains the somewhat unique aspect ratio featured in the marketing. With the movie being significantly longer and looking different, Snyder also revealed that one other change his cut includes is the addition of chapters. He previously revealed the first two chapter titles, but now all six chapters are known.
The official Twitter account for Zack Snyder’s Justice League shared the six chapter titles recently. As Snyder previously revealed, the first two parts are titled “Don’t Count On It, Batman” and “Age of Heroes.” The new chapter titles show part three is titled “Beloved Mother, Beloved Son,” part four is titled “Change Machine,” part five is titled “All The King’s Horses,” and part six is titled “Something Darker.”

With all six chapter titles now revealed for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, fans will begin looking for levels of meaning within each one. The titles should provide a good guideline for what will happen during each chapter from a narrative perspective. The first part will be focused on Batman trying to assemble the Justice League for the first time, and the main team should be together by the end of “Age of Heroes.” The third chapter’s title could be a reference to the Mother Boxes and planning for Superman’s return. The machine referenced in chapter four’s title should be about the Kryptonian ship that brings Superman back to life. Lastly, chapter five should be when all the entire team is together, while chapter six will include the showdown and the cliffhanger ending Snyder confirmed.
These chapter titles could be beneficial for how people watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The movie’s four-hour runtime will inevitably leave some viewers wanting a place to pause to take a break of some sort. Instead of audiences guessing where the best place to stop is, Snyder has built-in some checkpoints for those who don’t have the time or energy to commit four straight hours to a movie. But anyone eager to consume the film in one sitting can still do just that and enjoy the chapter breaks anyway.
