The DC Extended Universe and Warner Bros. got their spark back with Zack Snyder’s Justice League. This four-hour mini-series is solely representing Snyder’s vision and revamped the entire Justice League. Not only the heroes, but the villains have also been made more devious, with the introduction of the immortal Darkseid. His huge army of Parademons, his right hand DeSaad, and Steppenwolf, but were all made to look eviler. There is no doubt that Zack Snyder’s Justice League was simply outstanding. It has also helped HBO Max in increasing their downloads by 64%. These statistics only prove that Snyder’s Cut was inevitably important to the future of Justice League in DC and Warner Bros. as well.
For a moment, let’s think rationally. Forget that you love superheroes, and forget that you love Snyder’s version of 2017’s Justice League. But if you cannot do that, then the brand new Screen Junkies Honest Trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League might help you do that. The trailer does not thrash the movie, but it does point out some obvious nooks and crannies. Honest Trailers are known for their neutral and savage reviews of the movies, and now it is Zack Snyder’s Justice League’s turn. Honest Trailers digs into some of the obvious things, such as the over-usage of slow-motion shots. Check out the hilarious video below:
The trailer points out the over-usage of Wonder Woman’s theme music every time she fights or even appears. Even though the theme music is phenomenal, but it does get irritating after a while. The Athena music is almost playing throughout the movie. The trailer also trolls the grey CGI monsters, calling Steppenwolf the ‘grey CGI monster, Darkseid the ‘grey CGI monster boss, and funnily enough, DeSaad the ‘grey CGI monster boss executive.’ The Flash’s slow-motion scenes that depict the speedster’s superpowers are given the same weight as the slow-motion shots of Lois Lane simply putting down a cup of coffee has also been trolled.
The trailer then targets Cyborg. The trailer responds to Cyborg’s history and calls it worse than Batman’s. Cyborg has lost his parents, his body, and his place on the football team because of academic violations, and is ready to take on the mantle of Batman’s depression. The trailer simply has us in splits. Cyborg has also been made more aggressive and the heart of the movie. The trailer also calls out on Snyder’s muscular filmmaking, which has every hunk in the movie allergic to their own shirts. The trailer then proceeds to use romantic music in the background as every hero/villain in the movie is shown without a shirt.
The trailer is hilarious and provides a more neutral approach to the film. Honest Trailer literally stands for that. It shows a side of the movie that fans will never see as they are too busy appreciating it. Don’t get us wrong, the movie isn’t bad at all. It’s amazing. But these funny point-outs important for us too, so that the next time we see the movie, we can have ourselves a little chuckle. Zack Snyder’s Justice League was a complete redo of Joss Whedon’s Justice League which was released in 2017. Snyder’s Cut even had an R-Rating for its dark and abrasive language. This was necessary as Snyder’s version was darker, focused less on humor, and was set out to establish every character focusing on their history in its true essence.
Not soon after Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the internet started with a new hashtag of ‘#Restorethe SnyderVerse’, in order to bring Snyder’s blueprints of Justice League’s future to life. Snyder has follow-up plans that have been leaked online in the form of blueprints, and the fans can only imagine how beautiful it would be if Warner Bros. ever changes its mind and works on Snyder’s vision. We cannot doubt Snyder’s Cut popularity, popularity, simply because viewing figures in and of themselves aren’t a good metric here. Snyder Cut was seen by 1.8 million households, and Wonder Woman 1984 was seen by 2.2 million households. But we have to consider that Snyder’s Cut was a remake, and WW84 was a sequel. But Snyder’s Cut managed to do something potential enough.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League‘s audience score is an astounding 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. It was also revealed by Apptopia, an analyzer of streaming services, that Zack Snyder’s Justice League has increased HBO Max’s downloads by 64% ever since its release. These numbers only prove that no matter what hate Snyder’s version would get, it can be regarded as a flop or a desperate attempt to reboot Justice League. The reason for this is that Snyder’s version is actually a remake, and the remake has got more love and better statistics than the original one. People have re-watched something that they already had, and it still managed to be a superhit.
