‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ Movie Review: The Snyder Cut Is the Super Friends Movie We Need
Usually, when director's say their director's cut is a different movie, it's not. It's just longer. Even Oliver Stone's longest cut of Alexander was still Alexander. The most lauded director's cut, Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven, adds meaningful subplots but it's still the same story. Zack Snyder's Justice League really is a different movie. The Snyder Cut has at least two hours of new footage, more because it omits some egregious reshoot scenes and still runs twice as long as the theatrical cut.
Thanks to seeing The Snyder Cut, we can now objectively say that Joss Whedon made Justice League worse. To be fair, he was hired to. The studio did not want Zack Snyder's Justice League in 2017. They wanted a live-action Super Friends movie, but they didn't get that either. The Snyder Cut may be more adult and apocalyptic, but it is the grown-up Super Friends movie.
