Introduction

The Justice League is a team of superheroes who come together to fight crime and protect the world. The team is made up of DC Comics’ most popular characters, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg.

The Justice League has been adapted for the big screen twice. The first adaptation was released in 2017 and was titled “Justice League.” The second adaptation was released in 2021 and was titled “Zack Snyder’s Justice League.”

So, what is the difference between the two Justice League movies?

The 2017 movie was directed by Zack Snyder and released by Warner Bros. The movie had a budget of $300 million and grossed $657 million at the box office. The 2021 movie was also directed by Zack Snyder but was released by HBO Max. The movie had a budget of $70 million and grossed $96 million at the box office.

The 2017 movie received mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike. The 2021 movie, on the other hand, was much better received. Critics praised the film for its visual effects, action sequences, and storytelling.

The Justice League Movies

The Justice League is a team of superheroes that appear in American comic books published by DC Comics. The team was created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Mike Sekowsky. The Justice League first appeared in The Brave and the Bold #28 (March 1960).

The Justice League is an American animated television series that ran from 2001 to 2004 on Cartoon Network. It is based on the Justice League of America and associated comic book characters published by DC Comics.

The Justice League is a 2017 American superhero film based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name, composed of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg. It is the follow-up to 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the fifth installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU).

The Justice League is a 2018 American animated superhero film produced by Warner Bros. Animation and released by Warner Bros. Pictures. Based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name, the film is part of the DC Animated Movie Universe and was released direct-to-video on February 13, 2018.

The Difference Between The Two Movies

There are several major differences between the 2017 Justice League movie and the Snyder Cut, which was recently released. Perhaps the most significant difference is that the Snyder Cut is significantly longer, clocking in at four hours compared to the two-hour runtime of the original movie. This extended runtime allows for greater character development and a more fleshed-out plot. Additionally, the Snyder Cut features a number of scenes that were not present in the original movie, such as a flashback scene featuring Superman.

Another key difference is that the Snyder Cut has a different ending than the original movie. In the Snyder Cut, Superman does not kill Lois Lane, and instead it is revealed that he was under the influence of Darkseid’s Anti-Life Equation when he killed Zod. This change makes Superman’s character arc more optimistic, as he overcome great darkness to ultimately triumph in the end.

Finally, the Snyder Cut features a much darker tone than the original Justice League movie. This is evident in both the color palette used throughout the film and in the overall tone of the story. While the original movie was criticized for being too light and cartoonish, the Snyder Cut is a much more serious and somber film.

The Characters

TheCharacters: In the 2017 movie, almost the entire Justice League has new members with Superman (Henry Cavill) being the only original member. In the Snyder Cut, Superman is still the only original member, but Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) play much bigger roles than they did in the 2017 version. Martian Manhunter is also added as a founding member of the Justice League. The biggest change is probably Lois Lane (Amy Adams) being brought back from the dead by Superman at the end of the movie.

The Snyder Cut also includes a much larger role for Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). In the 2017 movie, he only appears in a few scenes and doesn’t really do much. In the Snyder Cut, he plays a pivotal role in the second half of the movie and is even responsible for bringing Superman back to life.

The biggest difference between the two versions of Commissioner Gordon (J.K. Simmons) is that in the Snyder Cut, Gordon is shown to be a lot more competent than he was in the 2017 movie. He’s also shown to be more skeptical of Batman (Ben Affleck) and his methods.

The two versions of Batman are also quite different. In the Snyder Cut, Batman is shown to be a lot more ruthless and doesn’t hesitate to kill his enemies. He’s also a lot more willing to team up with Lex Luthor and use Kryptonite against Superman.

The Plot

The basic plot of both movies is that a group of superheroes who call themselves the Justice League come together to stop a villain from taking over the world. In the first movie, the villain is a alien named Steppenwolf, who is trying to collect three powerful cubes called Mother Boxes. In the second movie, the villain is a terrorist named Darkseid, who is trying to find and activate a powerful weapon called the Anti-Life Equation.

The Settings

The first Justice League movie came out in 2017 and was set in the present day. The sequel, Justice League: The Snyder Cut, is set four years later in a post-apocalyptic world. This change in setting allows for a more accurate portrayal of the comics, as the Snyder Cut is more faithful to the source material. It also allows for a more emotionally resonate story, as the heroes are fighting for a world that has already been lost.

The Costumes

The costumes are a big difference between the two Justice League movies. In the 2017 movie, the characters all wear similar looking costumes that are dark and fit snugly. They all have Superman’s emblem on their chests. In the 2016 movie, the costumes are brighter and not as form fitting. Batman’s costume is all black, while Superman’s is blue and red. Wonder Woman’s costume is different in each movie as well.

The Action

The first Justice League movie came out in 2017 and the second one will be released in 2021. Both movies are about a group of superheroes who team up to save the world from villains. The first movie was directed by Zack Snyder, while the second one will be directed by Joss Whedon.

The two movies have different styles when it comes to the action. Snyder is known for his visually-stunning action sequences, while Whedon is known for his more humorous take on action scenes. For example, in the 2017 movie, there is a scene where Wonder Woman fights an enemy on top of a moving train. In contrast, the 2021 movie will have a scene where Aquaman fights an enemy while riding a seahorse.

The Music

When you think of the Justice League, you might think of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. But there are two movies about this DC Comics group, and they each have a different feel. A big part of that is the music.

The first movie, “Justice League,” came out in 2017. It was directed by Zack Snyder. His Snyder Cut came out in 2021. The music for both of these movies was composed by Danny Elfman. He’s known for his work on Tim Burton movies like “Batman” and “Beetlejuice.”

The second movie, “Justice League Unlimited,” came out in 2004. It was directed by Bruce Timm. He also did the music for this movie himself, with some help from Kristopher Carter and Michael McCuistion.

Conclusion

Although both movies were met with a lot of criticism, many people still enjoyed watching them. It is safe to say that they are two very different movies. If you are a fan of DC Comics, then you will probably enjoy both of these movies.
