The First Reactions to “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” Are Here

Earlier we shared what’s likely the final trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and now we can provide the early reactions to the film from critics and journalists. With only a few days remaining until Snyder’s second crack at Justice League bows on HBO Max, there are people out there who can actually tell us whether all this hype and hoopla has paid off. We know Snyder’s film is a four-hour extravaganza (luckily, there are six chapters, meaning six built-in breaks, should you need them), but how does the film play?

The initial reactions are…very positive! It seems Snyder really has delivered on his promise of bringing out a more cohesive, emphatic storyline. The reasons these assorted superheroes team up, so long used to working alone, is just one aspect that Snyder’s cut gives more time to. Most of the reactions note that while, sure, four hours is a long time, Snyder’s cut is vastly superior to the theatrical film in just about every way. Oh, and HBO Max is the perfect medium to enjoy it in.

Without further ado, here are a few of the initial takes:
