Long awaited but too long?
One of the biggest problems with the movie The Justice League launched in 2017 was that it did not finish telling things well. Your “director” Joss Whedon was faced with the ballot of having to join endless sequences (and compress them in 120 minutes) in a production phase in which its manager, Zack Snyder, should have been present. However, as you well know, this particular creative had to abandon the project in the middle of its process due to a very serious family event, leaving in the hands of Whedon a story that did not fully come together when it was captured on the big screen.
First it was the specialized criticism that revealed it and then the fans who complained about the inequality that there was between the different characters (some appeared a lot, others very little) and how little many of their actions were understood. Obviously they were not the only negative evaluations that the film received, but let’s say that the final time of the film and the complexity of it did not play in the film’s favor.
How do I solve it Snyder When did you take back the reins of this “director’s vision”? Well, spreading everything he wanted and more. With the advantage (in a certain way) that it is released on a home access platform such as HBO and the creative freedom of being able to tell things by right, the director mounted a Snyder Cut that lasts four hours (divided by chapters) and on which he has even given viewing recommendations.
The problem, of course, is that not everyone is willing, it seems, to invest such time in a movie …
Fairly weak reception data
We imagined that after all the hype that the Snyder Cut has been given – remember that if it exists, it is thanks to the great insistence of the fans and its promotional campaign – people would completely turn to its viewing, however, objective data tells us the opposite.
A twitterer specialized in audience data has created a thread in which he reveals several numbers related to some DCEU tapes. Among them we find data from the audience counting platform Samba TV that indicates that in the US of the 2.2 million households that began to watch Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max, only 36% finished it. In the United Kingdom, where they have also extracted the data, the figures are somewhat more favorable: of the 954 thousand households that put it, 48% made it to the end of the tape:
Also according to #SamaTV‘s report, from the 2.2M households who started watching #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague on #HBOMax, only 36% (around 792k households) actually finished it.

You have to take into account something very important: Data collected by SambaTV they are only extracted from selected Smart TVs that have their Automatic Content Recognition technology, they explain, so we cannot stop talking about a limited and random sample selected for this study and not absolute data. Likewise, the change between countries, as you have seen, is considerable, so we could also find markets where the numbers are even better (or worse, of course).
Be that as it may, it is not surprising that out of 2.2 million, only 792 thousand households have endured the 4 hours of footage, which makes us wonder if perhaps Snyder went wrong with this version. We assume that as is often the case with movies with a fan phenomenon like this, there will be opinions for all tastes.
And you, did you just see the Snyder Cut of The Justice League or did you also leave it halfway?
