Annlyel reacts to the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and a movie she describes as a powerful upgrade!
ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE
If you watched Justice League a little over three years ago and hated the overabundance of humor, the butt shots, the flirtation between Batman and Wonder Woman, or just the movie in general Zack Snyder’s Justice League is an upgrade and a half.
The flirtation between Diana Prince and Bruce Wayne is down to absolutely nothing except a fleeting moment of teenage-like awkwardness. The butt shots are gone (thank you, Zack Snyder.) And that aspect of humor that is such a staple of Marvel Studios’ films but felt forced and at times over the top with Justice League was dialed back big time, providing bits and pieces of comic relief via Barry Allen but nothing that felt like too much humor.

The story is much more concise and thorough. The heroes get some legitimate hero moments. And they come together as a unit in a rewarding way. In fact, there’s this moment between Aquaman, Superman, and Wonder Woman that had me like, “Ooooooohhhh!” If you’ve seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.
Cyborg is given a much larger role and a true blue origin story. The Flash is my new favorite fast superhero (sorry Quicksilver.) And some interesting surprises could lead to potential sequels or spinoffs. If Warner Bros. feels like enough people want to see it.
Overall, while I feel that The Snyder Cut is nowhere near the greatness and sheer enjoyment of the Avengers films (excluding Avengers: Age of Ultron) it is far exceptional to the theatrical cut. And in my opinion, is now totally canon.
It’s worth the watch for sure.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is streaming exclusively on HBO Max NOW!
