With the virtual watch party destination custom-created for HBO Max and Zack Snyder's Justice League, Scener will enable thousands of fans to gather for the interactive virtual event introduced by Snyder himself. Scener's video chat and messaging features will allow fans to hear first-hand insights on the journey to this exciting movie launch, while also sharing real-time reactions with the genre-obsessed community for the ultimate screening experience for the long-awaited film.

"Scener is the perfect place for deep genre communities like the #SnyderCut fans to connect virtually and celebrate the work of creative geniuses like Zack Snyder," co-founder and chief operating officer at Scener Joe Braidwood said. "Our partnership with HBO Max for Snyder's iconic film release signifies another major leap forward for co-watching, cementing this format far beyond the pandemic-era as a movement that's driving the future of streaming entertainment. We're honored to play our part in enabling this new form of community experience as studios, creators, and fans look to Scener as the destination to connect over the movies they love."

Braidwood told ComicBook.com that he's honored for Scener to be part of the event, allowing fans to participate and engage with the entertainment they love safely and in a way that makes sense for them during the pandemic.

"I think ultimately it's better for the fans, you know, it's great that you don't have to be in a room full of other people that can expose you to the pandemic," Braidwood said. "But even so, giving people the choice, at the end of the day consumers want to watch their favorite content at a price that is reasonable to them on their own terms in a way that gives them the most joy, and it's just an honor to be a part of that."

He also said that he is personally looking forward to seeing Zack Snyder's Justice League this way.

"I'm actually really stoked about watching this because I tried to watch the [theatrical] Justice League and I struggled, and I actually think just him teeing this up, him talking about his journey, and then being immersed in this content, I feel like I'm on the cusp of being a superfan," Braidwood said.
