(trailer review) - Zack Snyder's Justice League: Director’s Cut



I'm going to try and not repeat what I said in August 2020 regarding this debacle.  You can read that here: Zack Snyder's Justice League Trailer.  But it is very much worth highlighting here or briefly mentioning that, this was an utter shambles when Warner Bros decided to try and switch gears to catch up with Marvel's success.  With no real plan or direction, you end up with the Josh Whedon directed movie which is both Zack's movie with Josh's touches and edits.  Apparently, Zack has never watched the Justice League because it isn't his movie and more power to him.  I liked it for the most part, it wasn't terrible.

A trailer dropped in August and was pulled a little while after due to copyright infringement on the music choice used.  Apparently it wasn't cleared.  I'm just hoping that such a simple thing, isn't another spanner or something that is going to plague Zack's vision and stop us (I say that loosely) watching it on HBO Max.  We don't have HBO Max in the UK, so I wonder how that will work, Netflix maybe?

So, Zack has decided to drop an updated trailer and I'm going to be real with you, I'm not sure if there is a difference from the one dropped in August.  It does seem like there are a few newer shots with more of Ray Fisher's Cyborg and his story, and some other clips which were likely left on the cutting room floor, but although I'm not a huge fan of how the trailer is pieced together,, I still think it's phenomenal, albeit, I just want to see it now.  And now hearing he is adding more scenes, this trailer really is to showcase the NEW editions that were added, which now makes me think, maybe he has seen the Josh Whedon version...lol.

Anyway, it's shaping up to be a different kind of movie in terms of feel and I'm all for Zack telling his story.  WB seem to be doing right by him at present. Oh and just before I forget...that quick shot of Cyborg commanding all those (I'm assuming nukes), in his varsity jacket, is totally a boss shot! Also, the black and white is cool, but I think I'd prefer colour.

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, Ciarán Hinds
