Zack Snyder's Justice League Spoilercast Spectacular

Matt Adams published on

In the epic 100th episode of the Matt Adams Podcast, Anne and Matt devote the entire episode to Zack Snyder's Justice League, the four-hour redux of 2017's Justice League that premiered on HBO Max on March 18.

They'll talk about what they liked, what they didn't like, differences from the theatrical cut and Snyder's original vision, the benefits of the chapter structure, and why the definitive version of Justice League felt like a true sequel to Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman. Also: #ReleaseTheMulletCut, a couple of Howard interruptions, the aspect ratio, and our very first "post credits" scene.
