Trailer for Zack Snyder's director's cut of Justice League

The long wait is finally over, with Zack Snyder’s Justice League now available to watch.

It’s been five years since Justice League flopped, with the film’s failure largely attributed to studio interference when Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Joss Whedon took over directorial duties from Zack Snyder midway through production. 

Snyder, who left the project following a personal crisis, recently revealed he has still not watched the 2016 film. He said that he had been advised to “never see it” by Christopher Nolan, who served as a producer.

Owing to a fan campaign to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, the director was given the opportunity to fulfil his vision for the movie with his own four-hour cut that was commissioned by HBO’s streaming service HBO Max.

Early reviews have been mixed. The Independent called it an “exhausting four-hour behemoth” in its two-star review, whereas The Guardian and The Times awarded the film four stars.
