Zack Synder Man of Steel watch party: date, start time

The Zack Snyder's Man of Steel watch party began 11 a.m. Eastern | 8 a.m. Pacific. 

The Zack Snyder Man of Steel watch party is about to begin, and we're curious what it will provide, aside from commentary from the divisive director. Those paying close attention online may have their hopes up, as speculation posits this may be where we finally learn more about the Justice League Snyder Cut.

But will Snyder and co. live up to the simmering hype? Only one way to find out, we say, spending our Wednesday mornings watching the Zack Snyder Man of Steel watch party.

The big speculation heading into the watch party is that they'll announce that the Snyder Cut is finally going to be released. It could even land on HBO Max, which drops one week from the watch party, on May 27.

Oddly, this event isn't taking place on a major streaming platform like Twitch or YouTube. It's on Vero, the social network that time forgot. 

How to watch Zack Synder's Man of Steel watch party

You're going to need two things for the  event, a copy of Man of Steel and the Vero app. Since HBO Max isn't out yet, there's only one streaming service that includes Man of Steel, and that's Fubo TV. Yes, the sports centric streamer actually has video on demand too, and is the place to see Man of Steel.

But if you're here because of the Snyder Cut you're probably more interested in the Snyder part of the event, which takes place on the Vero social media platform. You can stream the event without a Vero account, just open this page and scroll down. You can also download Vero for iPhone or Android.

And, yes, the Snyder Watch Party stream thankfully works in web browsers as well. The event began minutes ago, shortly after its 11 a.m. Eastern, 8 a.m. Pacific start time. This is a bit early if you ask us, makes this seem more like something to make news than for a casual enjoyment of a film.

Vero, if you forgot (or never learned), positioned itself as a more noble social media platform. Free of trackers and algorithms. This is the first I've heard of it since I covered its 2018 launch.


Fubo.TV: The sports-centric Fubo.TV service goes beyond sports, with movies such as Man of Steel. It's also got other older movies, such as Old School, Suicide Squad and Guardians of The Galaxy. It's also got 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.

Man of Steel on Amazon

You can also rent Man of Steel on Amazon, where it costs $3.99. They also sell the movie digitally for $10.
