Review: So Warner Bros finally relented, and gave the fans what they asked for, with a generous $70 million budget, and the “Snyder Cut” was finally released as Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Now, I’ve seen the 2017 disappointment movie and I almost hated it more than the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot, if it wasn’t for certain scenes (The Flash realising Superman can “see” him approaching was exquisite) and the whole movie felt really forced to a deadline. Honestly, I would have been happier if Warner Bros had pushed the release date back and really thought this through earlier, maybe they would have come close to this version of the movie, and hopefully minus the negativity surrounding it

Having said that, after waiting more or less three years, the original vision was finally realised, which obviously led to even more disappointment that I couldn’t have had the IMAX cinema experience to watch this movie in. The tone, whilst aimed at a more mature audience like the Deadpool movies, has completely changed for me as the story starts to flesh out more and the character developments are built up for future appearances. A few nods to other DC stories if you keep an open mind. Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth owned his scenes

I am no longer disappointed in Justice League as the remake of the original vision can sprawl out into multiple more stories, should Warner Bros and Zack Snyder (There are reports that Zack did this for free??) decide to continue their collaboration. Now obviously, the only stumbling block would be the addition of megastar Dwayne Johnson to the DCEU. Brilliant casting by Warner Bros but as far as crossovers go, the story telling will need to be spot on in order to meld a direction now that Darkseid proper is in play. Sure the movie is nearly four hours long but use the intervals and forget the 2017 version...?
