Ever since Zak Snyder left the Justice League production and Joss Whedon stepped in to helm rewrites and reshoots for the film, DC fans have been chomping at the bit to see what the directoral-hybrid Justice League will be like. And now it seems, a select few actually know.
It was revealed today, via a number of social media postings, that Warner Bros. aired a cut of some sort or another, of Justice League to a select group of their own staff. Clearly under a gag order, none of the viewers were at liberty to give away even a modicum of information or details about the film. In fact, a few viewers who were nervous about posting anything at all in regards to the screening, went as far as to remove their posts altogether.
That few reactions that were posted ranged from one viewers “Ehhhh…it’s….fine?”, which just cracks me up, to another’s excited emoj. But, of course, these are all individual reactions and are purely subjective. So it’s up to you to decide how much stock you’re going to place in these early reviews. I personally, like to see things for myself and form my own opinions.
Warner Bros. and DC have a lot riding on Justice League, so, if you think about it, it’s almost not surprising that they had an early screening of the film this far out. With Snyder bowing out of the film due to a family tragedy and then Whedon stepping in to assist with rewrites and some significant reshoots, they obviously want to take advantage of the time that they have left before the premiere to tweak the film accordingly, if necessary.
I for one am rooting for the film to be a success. The studio and DC really need it to be and, realistically, the fans need it to be successful too. After all, these are our heroes we’re talking about here.
