I just watched Justice League again and after the second viewing, I still love it. I think I’ll always be bitter about what we could have had. So many ifs: if Zack Snyder hadn’t had to step away for family matters, if Whedon hadn’t been the one to finish it up, if WB hadn’t ordered it to be under two hours so so much wouldn’t have been cut, if the critics weren’t so unfairly and imo unjustly critical of everything the DCEU does, if WB hadn’t pandered to those critics…. If, if, if.
I will always wonder what the movie would have been like if we were able to see it as originally intended BUT that’s not going to stop me from loving what we were given. I have loved these characters since I was a child, have unabashedly loved the DCEU since Man of Steel and have been waiting for this movie long before it was first announced, so NOTHING is going to stop me from enjoying it. I’m gonna watch it again and again and again and enjoy all the positives that it did give us without dwelling on negatives.
But I’m also gonna hope like mad that when the DVD is released we’ll get to see Snyder’s Director’s Cut. Please give it to us WB.
And until then, I’ll be here still fangirling at the sheer amount of amazing Superbat they gave us! We should all aspire to love this franchise as much as Bruce loves Clark!
