‘Snyder Cut’ Fans Are Losing Their Minds Over How Much Better Than The Original It Is

After a year that saw essentially all blockbuster content evaporate, big-budget movies and television series have come roaring back so far this year. Not only have we already gotten WandaVision, but Zack Snyder’s Justice League dropped today, with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier releasing tomorrow. Movie theaters are making their way back, too, as AMC Theaters say 98% of their locations will be open by Friday. Black Widow is currently scheduled to release on May 7, Cruella and A Quiet Place Part II on May 28, and Fast 9 on June 25. Finally, normalcy begins to return.

Speaking of normalcy (hell of a transition here, I know), that’s exactly what Zack Snyder’s Justice League is: normal! It’s a… good movie! Not a masterpiece but above average. And given the lows the original Justice League sunk to, how much more could you ask for?

Fans are obviously reveling in having a movie featuring Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman that isn’t complete garbage, as the reaction on social media has been overwhelmingly positive.

While I certainly expected Zack Snyder’s Justice League to be an improvement over the gravely awful Whedon Cut, I’d be lying if I told you I thought the reception to the film would be this positive. The fact that a Zack Snyder movie — a four-hour, R-Rated superhero movie — has nearly an 80% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes is amazing. That’s the highest-rated movie of his career thus far!

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is (finally) now streaming on HBO Max. We covered the film in-depth over on the Post-Credit Podcast, so make sure to give that episode a listen if you enjoyed The Snyder Cut as much as we did.
