Polarizing. That is one way to describe the 2017 theatrical version of Justice League.
Hated by the majority of fans, the canon version of the gigantic DCEU film failed to satisfy critics and audiences. The movie had several head-scratching moments, leaving fans angry and confused. The movie seemed to not make much sense. As if someone tried to pick up broken pieces and glue them back together. Which was exactly what happened.
Due to a family tragedy, Zack Snyder had to exit the film. Joss Whedon picked up the pieces and ran with it. The movie was a failure in the eyes of most critics. It seemed like we would never see the movie Snyder had envisioned all along. Until HBO decided it was time.
Due to a massive campaign created by the fans, HBO Max will be releasing the Snyder’s cut of Justice League on March 18th, 2021. The social media embargo on reviews was lifted this weekend, revealing an overwhelming amount of positive reviews.
Clocking in at a run time of four hours, which worried fans and critics alike, seemed to help the movie tell the story it was always meant to tell. The inevitable comparisons between both cuts demonstrates that Snyder’s cut is indeed a much more cohesive and complete version of the movie.
