The film was initially set to release in 2017 but Snyder who had directed ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ earlier had left ‘Justice League’ during the post-production stage due to a family tragedy.
Joss Whedon was then roped in to oversee the post-production work. The film had a moderate performance at the box-office with many believing that Whedon had toned down the film and made it completely different from Snyder’s original version.
Fans petitioned Warner Bros. to release the original cut of the film from Snyder. The film stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ray Porter as Darkseid, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
The official synopsis of the film ‘Justice League reads, “In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne aligns forces with Diana Prince with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions”.
”The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions”.
The film has a runtime of 4 hours and 2 minutes. ‘Justice League’ has been structured into 6 parts-
Part 1: “Don’t Count On It, Batman”
Part 2: “The Age Of Heroes”
Part 3: “Beloved Mother, Beloved Son”
Part 4: “Change Machine”
Part 5: “All The King’s Horses”
Part 6: “Something Darker”
Critics have applauded Snyder’s version. The film has scored a positive rating on many websites that aggregate reviews.
