Zack Snyder’s Justice League Lost To Godzilla vs. Kong on HBO Max Debut

There has been a buzz around Zack Snyder’s Justice League throughout the pandemic. Well, it has what it has – an intense storyline, perfect character arcs, and a Superman to sum it all.

Some craved for it and some had their issues with it but no one outright ignored it.

Godzilla vs. Kong on the other hand was coming off of a long history. It is the 36th film in the Godzilla franchise and the 12th film in the King Kong franchise. In the battle of GvK vs. JL, the MonsterVerse has prevailed.

What worked?

Well both the films have a dense landscape for the characters to explore their arcs and have the audience engage in the plot.

Zack Snyder's Justice League Differences From 2017's Theatrical Release

There are two forces that collide in both films are a treat for all.

Both the films have managed to engage the audience with their visual effects and storytelling.

With the pandemic around, these films were on the streaming platform that created quite a buzz. Both of them garnered a good number of views for HBO max.


With the trailers out, these films got the audience hooked at their homes to their screens. But in reality, these streaming platforms never reveal exact numbers as per the viewership for the film.

They pan out an outlook as per the film and the liking of the audience.

There might not be SnyderVerse but there sure will be another film that might hop onto the wheel of the franchise for Godzilla or King Kong.

With multiple streaming platforms fighting each other – it’s highly likely that the data reaching the audience on the numbers might not be a hundred percent accurate. Streamers could just be painting a good picture for themselves.

The Winner

The MonsterVerse film garnered more views and had incredible collections over the debut week. With the viewership increasing, it was clear that this film exceeded the Snyder Cut and Wonder Woman 1984 as well.

GvK came out on top with 8.1 percent total viewership and Justice League was third in the line with 6.3 percent of total viewership with The Little things being in the middle with 7.2 percent.

After all the statistics that we read, learn or think about, it is HBO Max that’s the real winner.

Christopher Nolan might stay away from any streaming platform (especially HBO Max), but this WarnerMedia streamer is surely the winner that takes it all away.


Well both the films have a fan base that pulls them closer to their respective films. These films can not be measured based on their numbers alone. They have core values attached to them.

For some, it might pull out deeper emotions, and for others, it’s just something to live by and pass time.

Well, Zack Snyder’s Justice League has many characters who now have their independent films. On the other hand, the MonsterVerse is simply more compelling with the visuals it has.

The length of the film might have an effect on the numbers that come in but the cinema stays there forever.

On the reports that are to be believed, the wait for Justice League wasn’t worth the hype it created but Zack had his way till the point he wanted.

The MonsterVerse being an event film versus a director’s cut of a film – people had to weigh in at some point with their viewership and money.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League was a big deal but the excitement lowered down as the days passed by.

HBO MAX is glad for its viewership going upwards with the new release. Now, all eyes are on Mortal Kombat. Let’s see what the upcoming R-Rated film does for the streamer.
