Brief Synopsis:
Remixed version of Zack Snyder's Justice League is 47 minutes shorter, restructured and reframed to 2.31:1 with some theatrical additions and new opening credits sequence based on "Motherbox clip". Some scenes has been rearranged - for example: Bruce Wayne starts searching for Aquaman after the "history lesson" and we meet Flash earlier. Most of the sequel baits present in official version are gone, also removed are many scenes which were not necessary to keep the plot going. Movie ends just like theatrical cut without extended epilogue.
Intention:
To have a shorter and more streamlined version of the movie in my preferred aspect ratio.

- Steppenwolf arrives / Amazon battle occurs (ZSJL version)
- Flash introduction - Iris scene, a little shortened
- Steppenwolf starting to build his fortress, sends parademons to search for motherboxes
- Batman on the roof scene from Theatrical Cut, but Bruce doesn't talk with the burglar at all. Alfred says "What the hell", Bruce responds "the scout", Alfred says "It's time then". No image of motherboxes on the wall.

- beginning of chapter 4 replaced with Theatrical version up until the team reaches stairs and the bridge
- from the stairs we're back to ZSJL, but some theatrical bits are added here and there: "Save one person" dialogue (some patching with Elfman's score needed here), then actual saving by Flash
- theatrical version of sword scene (intertwined with ZSJL to have proper Steppenwolf), Wondy kills parademon during landing

This is a great fan edit and a nice alternative cut to Snyder's original. If you don't care for all the teases/cliffhanger elements like Martian Manhunter or the Knightmare scenes then this cut is for you. All the important parts are here plus a few welcome (but very short) additions from the theatrical cut. Very well done - great job!

So I really enjoyed it as an alternative version, all the good stuff from TC is included so now there is no need at all to revisit that garbage.

It looks like the extended cut of TC, but without bad humour, cheap-ass substitute scenes (like Martha-Lois talk from TC, bleh), either your cuts remind me of TC (transition from bank fight to Themiscira) or you use trimmed parts from there - and it really helps the pacing. Love the Whedon-cut additions: Flash pep talk, Batman rooftop fight or the after credits sceme - nice callback to the comics ;). Anyway, the opening credits are great and really worked with Elfman's score, which we can hear here and there. Also, starting and ending with Lois - great idea, it really worked, the opening is even more emotional with scenes from BvS.

If I can say something negative, then I don't really like using TC of Gordon scene. I mean Batman 89 theme is a nice tribute as is Williams theme, I can understand that, but Flash looking at Cyborg like an idiot or showing a piece of torn paper instead of Batman on a gargoyle - that's... so Whedon. There are also some minor bits when it comes to video editing, but it can happen on any fanedit so no problem with that.

So it's really enjoyable alternate version to Snyder's original, with good trimms, storytelling choices and neat ideas (like opening credits or puttinng this time Lois as the heart of the movie). So I really recommend this, especially for polish audience because polish lector (Borowiec) is avaible ;)

As Flash's father said "One of the best of the best" CONGRATS for this achievement.

I enjoyed that edit very much, Giefreg used a small percentage of Josstice, but the small touches served the edit well, and I do like Lois' speech at the end so glad the editor preserved it.

The earliest stab I did of an edit of this involved starting with Lois at Clark's memorial, so kudos for thinking alike there, it is a very good place to start, and the flashbacks only help to enhance it, giving better context to the story than just "Superman dies", now we see how important Lois was to Clark's motivation, which of course dovetails perfectly well into how she is 'the key' thematically.
