Justice League Snyder-Cut Reactions Are In, Here’s What Fans Are Saying

This is the month for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Yes, and we cannot stop thinking about it. The long-awaited film sees Justice League director Zack Snyder return to finish off his vision after he had to leave the project before it was complete and Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the movie. The Justice League Snyder Cut has even received a traditional blockbuster food tie-in themed around The Mother Box. Anticipation is only growing for the film, and now its long suspected rating has been confirmed. Here is what the initial response tells us.

Zack Snyder Releases Justice League Teaser

Cinemblend’s Sean O’Connel, who recently published a book about the movie, labeled Zack Snyder’s Justice League as “the Greatest DC Movie we’ve ever seen” – it evidently surpassing Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, and Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie among other fan favorites/classics. He added that it’s the film that fans thought they were going to see in 2017. Check out his tweet:

CinemaBlend’s Mike Reyes also had the chance to get an early look at the new DC Film and says in his reaction that it exceeded his expectations. He adds that it builds upon the experiences of Zack Snyder’s previous DC Extended Universe films, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and equates it to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s second game-changing hit. He tweeted:

Erik Davis from Fandango echoed similar sentiments regarding it being superior to the original cut, which saw Joss Whedon take over production for extensive reshoots. He highlights several aspects of Zack Snyder’s Justice League including the character development, story, and “badass moments,” and added that he also didn’t find the four-hour runtime to be too much. He tweeted:

Germain Lussier of iO9 didn’t feel the same way about the pacing of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, his sentiments including the adjective “bloated,” but his overall opinion of the cut seems to be positive, with his Tweet saying that every major change made in the new edit is to the benefit of the film. The tweet said:

The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez also shared his thoughts on the release – contextualizing it by saying that he has already watched Zack Snyder’s Justice League three times (an impressive feat when you consider that’s 12 hours of total movie-watching). Like others mentioned, he didn’t find an issue with the extended runtime, and labeled it as having a great deal of action and also a “fire” score by JunkieXL. He said:
