Zack Snyder's Justice League was considered a triumph by fans when it was released last year as it gave us the definite version of Justice League that director Zack Snyder originally envisioned, unlike the theatrical cut that was wildly compromised by studio interference and the reshoots under the guidance of Joss Whedon. Everyone can pretty much agree that the Snyder Cut was way better and it's great that fans were finally able to see it in its definitive form.
In a recent interview with Variety, Jeremy Irons, who played Alfred Pennyworth in the DCEU films, was asked if he has already seen Zack Snyder's Justice League to which he responded, "Strangely, I think I have it and I haven’t seen it. I shall have to hunt it out and see if I have it somewhere online or on a DVD. I remember talking to Zack [Snyder] before he did it and being very interested to see what he came up with. It couldn’t have been worse." When the interviewer asked if Justice League couldn't have been worse, he said, "I don’t think it could have been, could it?"
It is interesting to hear that Irons has not seen the Snyder Cut yet although we can't blame him since he might have been busy for the past several months and he has no time yet to invest almost fours hours to watch it. Given what he thinks of the theatrical cut, we can pretty much say that it is very likely that he will give a thumbs up to the Snyder Cut. His response also added the voice of many people who agree that the theatrical cut wasn't good at all.
The release of Zack Snyder's Justice League caused a huge celebration for fans as it gave them the version that they've been wanting to see after years of petition online. It may not lead to the extension of the "Snyder-verse," but it gave us the definitive version of the film that fans were excited to see prior to its release in theaters.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is streaming on HBO Max.
