Fandango's Erik Davis was also full of praise for the Snyder Cut, stating that it was a "far superior" film to Joss Whedon's 2017 theatrical cut even though it was a "long watch".
I can now say that I have watched #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague and it is far superior to the original theatrical version. Rich character development, much better action, a coherent story & some terrific badass moments. Definitely a long watch, but I never felt tired of it. Well done pic.twitter.com/QXyQLdUApvMarch 14, 2021
CinemaBlend's Sean O'Connell went as far as to label the Snyder Cut as "the greatest DC movie we've ever seen".

Summing up many fans' thoughts on the flick, Twitter user Mr. Will-iam favorably compared the Snyder Cut to Marvel's Avengers: Endgame, calling it Warner Bros' "best movie ever. Not just DC Comics. It's that great".
Since the Social Embargo is lifted, Zack Snyder's Justice League is stunning, epic, funny and hits you right in the feels. If Avengers Endgame was Marvel’s Best Movie ever than ZSJL is WB’s Best Movie ever. Not Just DC Comics. It’s that great. #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ pic.twitter.com/GH7zGbLg20March 14, 2021
