Brief Synopsis:
A more streamlined Justice League cut with added deleted scenes from trailers and bonus material. I’ve tried to keep it in the spirit of the previous films as much as possible, while still keeping the lighter tone. This is to improve the balance between the Joss Whedon reshoots and what Zack Snyder originally shot.
Intention:
Like many DC fans, I was a little let down by Justice League. Though overall it was a fine movie which I had a lot of fun with, it did miss the style and emotion that we have come expect with from Zack Snyder’s DC films. The intention of this cut is to slightly tweak it so it fits with the established characterization from MOS and BvS while also restoring several deleted scenes back in the film that were shown in the promotional material of JL. The most important thing about this cut is that it’s a cohesive film and not further Frankenstein it by removing and changing major scenes and dialogue. Another important thing is that it stays true to the canon established by the theatrical cut, so it won’t create further inconsistencies when future films references back to this film. It’s not perfect, it will never be perfect with the material given, but for me this cut is a more satisfying experience of the third installment of the Zack Snyder trilogy and hopefully for other fans as well.

In short: If you liked Justice League and want it to look a little bit more like the previous films and has less out of place humor, then this is the cut for you.

Editing Details:
The core of the film won’t change and there won’t be any major additions either. So no Darkseid or anything of the leaked storylines from Zack Snyder’s original cut/script. Most of batman’s jokes have been cut to make his characterization more in line with BvS. Cut the Russian family subplot for the most part. Cut out most of the obvious reshoots that were shot in front of a green screen and awkwardly added into Zack Snyder’s scenes. Added Hans Zimmer’s Man of Steel score to highlight a few poignant scenes. Color graded the entire film to match the visual style first trailer.
Cuts and Additions:
- Added “Men are still good” in the opening logos
- Cut the opening superman scene (moved the audio of the scene to the credits. I thought the exchange in the scene itself was fine, the problem was the way the scene looked This way it is and it isn’t still in the film)

Going through a process of looking back at tons of Josstice League edits as a step of preparation for trying to make an edit of ZSJL. So far I've rewatched two edits not on IFDB, including JL: Origins and the "Ultimate Fan Edition" I think it was (I don't have that hard drive at the moment and I'm struggling to remember the name). The former was alright, the latter was less-so. But this was always gonna be my winner (Well, I say that still not having seen the Ultimate Edition by Bobson). For years this was my definitive Justice League. The color grading was exactly where I wanted it, even more-so than the ZSJL we got which I feel over-compensates for the hyper-saturation of Josstice League too much. While I would've used more of the old scores, I like the minimalism quite a bit. The worst jokes were excised and some bad Whedon scenes legitimately became a lot better in editing. This cut is one of the best examples of how editing really is the final rewrite of a movie, and it ultimately just reflects even worse on WB because it shows that even with the Whedon footage and how much was already cut, something decent could've been made had they taken some more time to polish it like you did. With this, Josstice League felt like something genuinely different not just from the MCU-esque tone of the TC, but even from the Snyder tone. Looking back, this cut still holds up as being my favorite "middle road" cut, even more-so than cuts that combine ZSJL and the TC together. The tone is different from Snyder and Whedon, if anything I'd say Wonder Woman is the closest tonal comparison here. But what it results in is I guess a window into another world. A world where the writer who won out at that "Summit" they had wasn't Whedon, but Allan Heinberg. Do I like it more than ZSJL? No, but I'm a hopeless Snyder fan at the end of the day who was always gonna like the 4:3 4 hour bloated version the most, regardless of its issues. Regardless, this still stands as my second favorite Justice League, and for that honor to be held by a Josstice League edit and not something using ZSJL as a base is a testament to the quality of this cut and to how clueless WB was. If fans could do it with Blu-Rays and trailers, why couldn't WB have made something this polished with their millions of dollars?

This is definitely far superior to the theatrical cut. Then again, anything would be an improvement on that disastrous mess of a theatrical cut. The new color grading to have it appear more like the initial trailer (prior to reshoots) is relatively solid (and it does thankfully make things slightly less plastic-looking), much of the cringey jokes being removed is a major plus, and the reincorporation of deleted scenes and trailer moments that were cut out is more than welcome. Nicely done.

A fantastic fanedit. I highly recommend this it.
Justice League Reborn greatly streamlines the problematic theatrical cut easily surpasses it. A lot of cheesy moments are gone, the score fits better, and the deleted scenes add a lot of substance to the film.
Great job, JLfanedit!
I wholeheartedly enjoyed this cut. I no longer need to eagerly wait for the Snyder Cut.

Leaps better than the theatrical cut. Audio transistions were very smooth and allowed for seamless bridging of the deleted scenes, there were a few abrupt points that have been mentioned already, but some of that was not due to the editor's fault. Overall JL isn't a bad movie, but neither is it a remarkable one. The new footage makes it a unique and pleasant watch however...and sometimes in a world where (IMO) mediocre joke-ridden Marvel movies with no soul to them are hailed as masterpieces, sometimes a genuine passable serious DC film with an optimistic tone can be a resounding breath of fresh air.
