‘Justice League’: First Zack Snyder Cut Reactions Call It ‘Epic’ & ‘Superior’

The first reactions to the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League have made their way online.

HBO Max has decided to lift the social media embargo for the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League a day early and it appears that the word of the mouth on the movie is generally positive. Critics seem to agree that the Snyder Cut is superior to the theatrical cut of the movie, which was handled by Joss Whedon. Check out some of the reactions below.

Earlier today, HBO Max released the final trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut ahead of its release on the streaming service later this month, revealing a lot of never-before-seen footage from the movie. The sneak peek included footage of the iconic DC Comics villain Darkseid, voiced by Ray Porter.

Darkseid almost played a larger role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League and subsequent DC Extended Universe films. However, after Joss Whedon assumed directorial duties during post-production and oversaw extensive re-shoots for Justice League, Darkseid was removed from the theatrical cut and Warner Bros. reassessed their plans for future DCEU films following the underwhelming reviews and box office gross of the film. Snyder’s original 5 movie-arc for the DCEU was also said to include events like the murder of Lois Lane and of half the Justice League, with Darkseid taking control of the heartbroken Superman with the Anti-Life Equation.

Here is the official synopsis for the Zack Snyder cut:

“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut is expected to hit WarnerMedia’s HBO Max on March 18, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Ray Fisher’s Cyborg and the Zack Snyder Cut, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
