A nice moment between father and son. I do hope we get more Billy Crudup this time around.
Cyborg working on the mother boxes, just like he did in the theatrical version, but it seems like maybe this time he has a reaction to them? Or them to him? Perhaps that’s why Flash is on his way to him, to make sure his friend doesn’t get hurt or killed.
Superman with his mom and wife. This is definitely where he gets his humanity back.
Batman jumping back into the fray. Wonder Woman landing a blow with her sword. Flash running at full tilt. I don’t remember this energy field/explosion in the theatrical version. Can anyone confirm?
And here’s the team, together at last. This is also straight out of the theatrical cut, but the colours are more muted.
“The age of heroes will never come again”. These are definitely flashbacks to the battle against Apokolips thousands of years ago. If you couldn’t tell from the amazon image (and to be fair, that’s a dope scene), ten take heed of King Atlan and his armour and trident, which we learn the fate of in Aquaman.
Shots of our heroes in action. Batman swinging into the fray (as seen in the theatrical cut). Aquaman gearing up to make a big throw. Wonder Woman leaping over Steppenwolf, about to strike at his weapon, and Cyborg flying to escape some kind of blast.
This is what some of you are here for, right? Black suited, super angry Superman eye-lasering the hell out of something. There was a time when I would be there with you, and I’m genuinely interested to see how the fight against Superman goes. One rumour I had heard was that when Justice League was still going to be a two-part movie, the resurrected and pissed off Superman would be the antagonist in the first one and Darkseid would take over in the second. I actually kind of like this idea and think it has some potential to explore things like free will and Id and Ego and all that.
I hope they actually do something with it this time.
Here’s what some of you are really here for though: Jared Leto as The Joker. Now this is from the expanded “Knightmare” sequence an it appears that Batman is begrudgingly working with the Joker at this point. I don’t know how I feel about that, but just revel in Joker’s “we live in a society” line, as though he was actually a twitter troll.
Also, farewell “damaged” tattoo. We hardly knew ye.
Honestly, I can’t believe we live in a world where the #SnyderCut is actually happening. As I said previously, this thing is going to be fascinating no matter what just for the opportunity to examine the same work through the vision of two different filmmakers.
I have to say that I didn’t react as poorly as I thought I might, but then again I already liked Justice League once, so maybe I’m just in the bag for the one, too. Her is my biggest question: why is this thing in 4:3? It feels like a choice, so is there some aspect of the film that will look better in it? Or something?
