New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 284 | Zack Snyder’s The Justice League

It’s not every day that a franchise’s fanbase is able to will a movie into existence, but that’s exactly the rare occurrence that is under consideration on this week’s episode. With Wade away from the hosting chair, Kevin is joined by Detroit critic Chris Williams to discuss Zack Snyder’s Justice League (not to be confused with its predecessor, 2017’s Justice League). After the 2017 film saw director Zack Snyder exit the project due to a family tragedy and Joss Whedon come on board to complete it, the finished product was greeted with tepid reviews from critics and widespread disappointment from fans. Rumors of a “Snyder cut” swirled, saying that Snyder’s plans for the film were more ambitious and just plain better than the theatrical release. After numerous fan petitions, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. reached an agreement where Snyder, working without a paycheck, could finish his cut of the film as he saw fit, premiering it on the brand-new HBO Max streaming service. That big day has arrived, and now Kevin and Chris face the question: Was the wait worth it?
