Whilst not exactly dominating the news cycle over the past few years, you can’t exactly deny that ‘The (now almost legendary) Snyder Cut’ has been talked about A LOT and we’re finally at the point where it’s only a few days away from release and the first reviews and reactions are dropping in.

Kinda surprisingly, it seems like they’re overwhelmingly positive at this point. I think everyone probably knows the story by now of have Joss Whedon butchered the original cut of the movie, but I’m not sure if anyone was ready for how much of an improvement it sounds like ‘The Snyder Cut’ is going to be on it. Take a look at some of this below:
Despite its length and its rating, the #SnyderCut is oddly Snyder’s most accessible, subtle DCEU film.
Biggest improvement is the tone and the reverence for the characters. These are American storytelling icons – Snyder understands that and how to maximize their heroism. pic.twitter.com/IJj4TU1xPw

I watched (multiple times) #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague!
The movie is EPIC. The characters just matter more. They have purpose and emotion. The villains are intimidating. Cinematography is beautiful. It’s EXCITING!

It’s clear @ZackSnyder put the extra work in to include everything, as if this were the end but I hope it’s not since there are scenes and edits which don’t fully work on their own in this story, some existing just as extra nods for fans, or to be paid off later.

And I’ve actually watched it more than once, and spent an entire afternoon going back and forth between this new cut and the original to have a clearer understanding of what all changed… and it is significant, I think. Tonally, visually, musically, action-wise. It’s pretty wild pic.twitter.com/51bw4dscoq

#ZackSnydersJusticeLeague is a masterpiece that gave me goosebumps from beginning to end. The whole time I couldn’t believe the stuff they left out. And it’s crazy how important Cyborg is to the main story in this, he really is the heart of the film

For a 4-hour runtime it’s very entertaining, it keeps the viewer on their toes

Snyder’s Justice League is one of the best superhero movies ever made. The long awaited cut lives up to the hype & feels unlike anything we’ve seen in this universe before. Each character is fully realized & gets their moment to shine & kick some ass. #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague pic.twitter.com/d8uEQNFicV

#ZackSnydersJusticeLeague delivers what fans rallied for, action, visuals, development, even humor n despite the “Snyderisms”, some plot issues n length it’s a spectacle n delivers but isn’t without flaws, n proves WB didn’t need to take the path they did to “save” DC films

#JusticeLeagueSnyderCut is an assembly cut w/ finished effects. Its the same core movie we saw in 2017 w/ two hours of deleted scenes & some slightly altered versions of existing beats. Two reasons to watch: The action climax is much better and Cyborg gets the deserved spotlight. pic.twitter.com/bUSmiJwccT

#ZackSnydersJusticeLeague is truly epic. Superior to the 2017 version in every way. Amazing action and score. Every character shines and story arcs follow through from MOS and BvS. Can’t believe this exists. Incredibly satisfied and so, so worth the wait. #RestoreTheSnyderVerse pic.twitter.com/ioDQTvn9ic

#ZackSnydersJusticeLeague is beautiful. And @Junkie_XL ! That SCORE!Holy moly. I don’t want to spoil anything, but after the whole thing I wanted to start it over immediately- thank you @ZackSnyder – and thank you to all who fought to get this made. #snydercut #forautumn 💜

The runtime — which blows by like it’s nothing — allows backstories, team’s assembly and action to flow effortlessly. pic.twitter.com/o7f29JUAlN

Wow. I probably wasn’t going to watch ‘The Snyder Cut’ originally – not even sure how you can get it over here and the four hour run time definitely puts me off, as well as never being a fan of the recent DC stuff either – but maybe I’ll have to now after reading all of that? I suppose there’s an international break after this week’s football so that will probably give me a good opportunity hey?
For more of the same, check out what Jared Leto’s Joker looks like in ‘The Snyder Cut’. Actually pretty badass.
