Zack Snyder’s Justice League – 82% was one of the best surprises fans have had in recent years. Although faith in Zack Snyder was long lost, in part because of constant litigation with Warner Bros., the cut of this tape showed that the director had a clear vision for his saga. Unfortunately, it was too late in many ways. The production company decided to squeeze the fans one last time, but they assured that the adaptations of DC they would follow another path and titles like The Suicide Squad – 91% have resulted from this decision.

Of course, fans will continue to fight for the Snyderverse, especially now that there is evidence that Warner Bros. yes it ends up paying attention to them. You have to remember that for years they made sure that the Snyder cut did not exist, and then they swore that it was real, but it was not complete and that finishing it would be a waste of money. Many even got tired of seeing how Snyder shared details and images on his social networks as proof of his disappointment with the Joss Whedon cut. The constant support of the fans and others involved in the film was essential for the dream to come true.
After many rumors, in March 2021 this project was finally released, just as Snyder had developed it years ago. Although the story does not change as much as one might hope, the extension allows for better character development, especially when it comes to Flash (Ezra Miller), who in the first cut was nothing more than the element of mockery. In addition, the film has very clear narrative elements that promised at least one very interesting sequel.
Since its premiere in HBO Max, Zack Snyder’s Justice League It has been one of the most watched in the year. The reviews were quite positive, especially since it was impossible not to compare it to the one that was released in 2017, and this also helped a lot to give it a chance for those who were not so convinced. The streaming platform was not the only way to see the film, and now that it was released in home format it is clear that it will continue to improve its reputation.

Space Jam: A New Era – 64%, also from Warner Bros. and premiered in HBO Max, enters the list this week at No. 20, down from Yellowstone’s second season. A Quiet Place Part II – 93%, with Emily Blunt and Cillian Murphy, stayed at No. 4, but this is definitely important when you consider that the sequel has been released on platforms since May. In a peculiar way, Don’t Breathe – 87%, led by Fede Alvarez, is in 17th place, surpassed by Spider-Man: Far From Home – 82%; Although neither of the two are premieres, it is evident that the audience is catching up to see their respective sequels.
Although there are still several months to go before an official count is made, it is clear that Zack Snyder’s Justice League It will be considered one of the best releases of the year. On the other hand, the fact that it was released successfully on streaming platforms will once again bring the whole issue of exclusive and dual premieres to the table. After all, the pandemic hastened production companies’ plans to launch their own services and to be more open about how they can reach audiences. That the movie of DC stands as proof of what can be accomplished will be one more resource for those fighting to restore the Snyderverse.
