As we inch every closer to the long-awaited Zack Snyder‘s Justice League premiering on HBO Max this Thursday, expect promotion to kick into high gear. After releasing the final trailer yesterday featuring tons of new footage, early reviews and reactions are slowly trickling in.

Currently on Rotten Tomatoes, Zack Snyder’s Justice League ranks 77% significantly higher than the 40% the original 2017 version ranked. The consensus seems to be that it’s Zack Snyder’s version is a vast improvement to the one we got when Joss Whedon took over, though in all honesty that’s a fairly low bar.

While the majority of praise seems to come from fans who have been campaigning for #ReleaseTheSnyderCut for the last few years, critics are much more lukewarm towards the film.

Nevertheless, critics do seem to commend the unprecedented and historic achievement for Snyder in being able to bring his original vision to life given the unique and unusual circumstances.

Keep your eyes peeled this week for The Beat‘s review of the film. Zack Snyder’s Justice League premieres on HBO Max on March 18th.

In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.


  1. One review revealed that once again Zack Snyder has de-saturated the color in the film, which I suspected would happen. A few months ago there was an on line interview with him and the pre-screened questions avoided asking him about that. Hey, Zack, Avengers Endgame did not de-saturate the colors even though it had some downbeat elements and I hear that film was quite successful! So I’ll pass on this latest Zack Snyder travesty.
