In the Philippines alone, the release of the much-anticipated four-hour cut of Zack Snyder’s Justice League has already overwhelmed HBO GO at the very first hour of its release last Thursday at 3:00 in the afternoon. Since then, more and more viewers have seen the film. If you have not been into the cinematic experience yet, HBO GO via Sky has five reasons not to miss out on the excitement in this superhero flick featuring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg.
1. Runtime: 4 hours, 2 minutes
Zack Snyder’s version proves to be a jam-packed wonder for fans to experience as it promises a four-hour epic, expanding the backstories of our beloved heroes—from the introduction of Cyborg’s mother, Elinore Stone; the love interest of The Flash in Iris West; the appearance of Vulko (Willem Dafoe) and how he deepens Aquaman’s story arc; to the emotional affair between Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Superman himself.
More screen time also means more action-packed scenes, more characters to behold, and provides viewers a much broader spectrum.
2. Never-before-released footages
With its extended running time, the film promises more never-before-seen footage. Apart from the featured Justice League heroes—Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher)—fans should watch out for another member in the mix in Calvin Swanwick, also known as the Martian Manhunter (Harry Lennix).
Fierce adversary Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello) also has extended scenes in the film, while Ryan Choi (Zheng Kai) expands his role for viewers to unravel. Fans can watch the triumph of the Justice League against Akropolis’ nightmare, Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), in its extended glory, along with the first-time appearance of apocalyptic god Darkseid and the haunting return of Jared Leto’s Joker.
3. Divided into six chapters, including a special epilogue
For a much easier viewing experience for fans, the producers made sure to divide the four-hour film into six chapters, including a special epilogue, to make give fans the options how to watch it. It also gives fans to get to know more the characters which a theatrical version cannot.
4. Additional efforts for editing and visual effects
The film also showcases a new musical score, written by its original composer Junkie XL, also known as Tom Holkenborg. Its visual effects team worked tirelessly on thousands of shots that needed to be done or re-done for the avid viewers.
5. New scenes to watch out for
Fans and movie-watchers alike should expect new scenes from Zack Snyder’s execution of DC’s Justice League. Apart from reshooting The Flash’s scene virtually, archrivals Batman and the Joker have additional footage together and how it will turn around the highly anticipated franchise.
