Finally, after months of speculation and a passionate global movement among dedicated fans, The Snyder Cut of Justice League will finally be released. Although not a strong supporter, I am still happy and curious on how this cut will deliver. I may be one of the few to have enjoyed Joss Whedon’s version. So I am curious to see this to compare and contrast. Hopefully, we can access HBO Max in NZ.
I’ve loved earlier Zack Snyder movies like 300 and Watchmen. Man of Steel not so much. Visuals were good but the story did not flow smoothly. As a big Batman fan, I was really looking forward to Batman v Superman. Ben Affleck was not bad as Batman. I really liked how he single-handedly defeated the thugs in the warehouse. Really felt like watching a Dark Knight comic brought to life. Wonder Woman was awesome but they should have saved her for another feature. And how annoying Jesse Eisenberg’s Luthor was! Plus, the whole “Martha” twist.
When it was revealed that Snyder was leaving Justice League and that Joss Whedon would finish JL, I had mixed feelings. I was hoping for a balance. The darkness of Batman excellently brought to life by Snyder and the hope and joy of Superman which hopefully Whedon would now be able to showcase. It did not happen but I have still enjoyed the finished product. Guess I’m really a big Justice League fan after all.
So looking past all the hate and negativity, having The Snyder Cut released is still a big win for the comic book community. As a comic book fan, I would now have two movie versions of my all-time favorite team in comics. And that’s not bad at all.
