I’ve been seeing a lot of chatter surrounding Zack Snyder’s Justice League since it debuted Friday; it’s one of the best comic book movies ever made, it’s the best DCEU movie, #RestoretheSnyderVerse, Jared Leto’s Joker is the best Joker, you get the theme. The hype is real. And while Zack Snyder’s Justice League did prove to be far better than the original Justice League movie we have to pump the brakes on the excitement and face the facts.
I’ve seen so many people saying how Snyder is such a great movie maker and that more movie studios need to allow directors to tell their own stories and let their characters develop. Well, that’s just fine but is anyone else realizing that Zack Snyder’s Justice League was a special event and that we will most likely never have another four hour superhero movie?
I am a superhero movie fan. Why? Because I’ve seen so many I sometimes can’t remember all of the ones I’ve seen. I’m talking watching even the crappiest ones like Elektra and I even tried to watch Green Lantern (I didn’t make it very far.)
I have even watched all of the DCEU movies (Man of Steel, Batman vs. Superman, Justice League, Wonder Woman, The Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman 1984, Shazam!, Aquaman, and Birds of Prey.) My top three are Shazam!, Man of Steel, and Wonder Woman. The rest fall into a pack of not-so-great-superhero-movies with Aquaman just edging out the others as an every-once-in-the-while film.
I went into Zack Snyder’s Justice League expecting it to be better than Whedon’s cut. It was…and that is about it. Snyder’s version is four hours of bloated, testerone-inspired superhero nonsense that left me still confused by the end of the movie even though we supposedly got two extra hours of content to make the story easier to follow.
So, because I have a lot to say I’m going to break this review into pros and cons. And of course, we will take the cons head on first.
The #SnyderCut of Justice League of course is happening and the more I hear about it, the more it sounds like some couch potato’s idea of a good superhero movie. Zack Snyder is teasing an F-Bomb from Batman, an R-rating for its violence (the extended edition of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice was R-rated too), and yeah, he wants it to release in theaters at the same time as it releases on HBO Max.
Like anyone’s really going to go watch The #SnyderCut for 4 hours in theaters. Is this guy serious?
We’ll see how this movie turns out but yeah…this whole #SnyderCut thing feels like it’s turning into more of a joke every passing day.
What do you think? Do you like the sound of the new changes? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
The #SnyderCut of Justice League has been whined about by hardcore DC Comics fans for a while now and now it’s finally happening. The #SnyderCut will release on HBO Max next year with extended scenes, an alternate storyline, and some extra additions, one such being the return of Jared Leto’s horrendous Joker.
Yeah. That guy is back. Honestly, this movie may not be good no matter what type of adjustments you make to it. I hope Zack Snyder is ready for these ruthless fans to rip the “Snyder Cut” to shreds because if it ends up anything like Batman vs. Superman people aren’t going to be happy.
However, I think Justice League was so bad that any improvement, no matter how small, will still be an improvement.
What do you think of this news? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
We’ve been waiting for the trailer for #TheSnyderCut since it was announced that we would be getting to see it and here we go, the trailer for #TheSnyderCut. Enjoy!
Yo! I’m so impressed. I’ve seen Justice League enough times to know what needed to be changed and what differences #TheSnyderCut has made. This trailer literally had my jaw dropped. I’m talking, mouth open in sheer wonder.
The cinematography retained that dark, gritty look that I’ve gotten used to with Batman vs. Superman and yes, we’re finally going to get more of these new characters in ways that wasn’t as fleshed out in the theatrical version.
I’m so ready to see this new-and-improved version of Justice League and I can’t wait to see what surprises are in store.
And then there was Black Adam which I’ve been waiting to see as well.
