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.

Release Information:

Editing Details:
- whole movie reframed shot by shot to 2.31:1 aspect ratio, close enough to theatrical 2.35:1.
- re-arranging some scenes



Cuts and Additions:
- edit opens with Lois visiting Superman memorial place, some flashbacks to Superman's death occurs via shots from BvS
- then we got Wonder Woman's introduction - terrorist fight scene (ZSJL version, with some shots from theatrical added, and some little cuts, ends in similar fashion like theatrical cut), cuts to...
- Themyscira - motherbox awakens / Opening Credits (based on Motherbox Clip)
- 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.
- Silas leaving labs, janitor abducted as in ZSJL
- arrow scene
- Tomb Raider scene CUT
- then Silas talking about the kidnapping, scene starts with "eight people never sign off", he comes back home
- Steppenwolf talks with De Saad.
- history leeson has no mention of anti-life equation
- THEN, Bruce starts to search for Arthur...
- Bruce meets Arthur, song shortened no sweater sniffing
- Martha mourning her son
- Bruce & Alfred conversation by the helicopter
- Steppenwolf interrogating atlantean soldier CUT
- Bruce & Alfred in plane - ZSJL version shortened, Alfred has no doubts as he has already seen parademon.
- Fisherman rescue, meeting with Vulko
- Bruce & Diana making plans
- Cyborg origin with few cuts (hacking college computer, destroying tape recorder - it won't be relevant later).
- Diana & Alfred (no tea, added a little bit from TC)
- Diana meets Cyborg and until Mera & Aquaman scene, everything proceeds like in ZSJL, then line "my parents died in a war" changed to "fought in wars".
- 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
- starting from Aquaman appearance, theatrical version of escape from the tunnel + additional scene with Gordon from TC
- ZSJL version of discussion about reviving Supes
- Martian Manhunter deleted, obviously
- Steppenwolf/Desaad/Darkseid scene CUT

From the outset let me state this is now my preferred version of Justice League. It’s basically Snyder’s JL but removes all the sequel bait and nicely closes off his trilogy.

The opening is brilliant. Starting with Lois mourning Clark and the touching piece of music with plays over it. Then Wonder Woman verses the terrorists for some action, followed by the awakening of the Motherbox on Themyscira. Finally the amazons line ‘alert the queen’ to then transition into the opening credits scored with Elfmans Hero’s theme. All of this builds quite nicely and got me excited to watching the movie.

From here on I think the pacing works tremendously, the cuts made were justified and well thought out.

In terms of some creative choices.

I would have tightened up Wonder Woman verses the terrorists. I never liked that she took the time to lasso the first guy, gaining little information whilst the bomb was already counting down. Also the delivery of lines by some of the cops outside is pretty poor, 'they've got kids in there'.

Keeping with Snyder's musical choice rather than the White Stripes after Aquaman rescues the fisherman. This choice I remain 50-50. Snyder is definitely casting more the lonely figure rather than drunk surfer dude as in the theatrical cut. From a character perspective I much prefer this and the visuals all be it with too much slow motion are very strong. It just feels out of place and slows the movie down a little too much.

I missed Alfred instructing Diana on the perfect cup of tea. Silly unnecessary moment indeed but plays sweet and Jeremy Irons is just so good in this role.

I would have liked to have seen the voice overs from Crowe and Costner removed when Superman takes flight in the black suit. Wakeupkeo’s edit did this and I thought it worked great.

This brings me to Elfman’s score. Let me say in isolation I actually don’t mind Elfmans Justice League and I’ve already praised the use of his Hero’s theme for the opening credits. However the less than subtle nods to his 1989 Batman theme and Williams Superman theme were very on the nose and I’d prefer not to have heard them in this fan edit. Furthermore the transitions between Elfmans and Junkie XL's cues play tonally inconsistent. For example Aquaman’s epilogue with Junkie XL, then cutting to Clark and Bruce on the farm with Elfman. Though I liked book ending the film with Lois’s monologue from the theatrical cut, the score unfortunately let’s it down. I’ve seen another fan edit re-score the end monologue with Zimmer's MOS theme and found it worked a treat.

Other moments I’d like to have seen re-scored are obviously those homage moments including Batman and the league meeting Gordon on the rooftop and Superman fighting the Flash. Though funnily speaking old themes, I did like the Zimmer/Williams Superman mashup to close the end credits and segue into the post credit Superman v Flash race.

Video quality was pretty good for what was admittedly a small MP4 and I thought Gieferg did a great job in blending the sources.

Audio/Video edits were flawless aside from the following:

54:36 the audio transition from Lois thinking of Clark to Bruce washing his razor on the plane. Here the music just cuts out abruptly.

01:47:29 the audio cut from Cyborg bringing back the last Motherbox to the league mulling around it was a little rough.

03:00:21 the image jumps when cutting from the league looking out at the plane to a panning close up of Cyborg.

These nitpicks aside this is overall a tremendous fan edit of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this edit, so much so that I believe this is the ultimate cut over the theatrical and Zack Snyder's cut. Given the fact that Cyborg isn't going to come back in the future and neither is his dad in the theatrical cut, this might as well be canon at this point. I never really liked Zack Snyder as a storyteller but respect him as a good director in terms of visual effects and action scenes like Michael Bay. But Snyder at least has more artistry and ambitions in his movies overall with some good dramatic scenes here and there but after the success of "300", I feel he's been given too much creative control that the potential in his movies is usually lost and ruined that they need another edit or fan edit in this case to fix it. Thankfully this version does the job very keeping the movie very tight and focused on the story whilst also balancing the movie's dark and gritty tone(which is known to have too much even for a superhero movie). My only complaint is really the sometimes very obvious transition between the theatrical and director's cut which is even more noticeable in the beginning and end of the movie such as the quality from both versions with the theatrical cut's resolution looking lower than the latter but nonetheless, this fan edit does a great and straight-forward job getting to the main story without all that filler while enjoying the best of both movies at the same time.

" such as the quality from both versions with the theatrical cut's resolution looking lower than the latter"

Well, in fact, it's the other way around.

The absolute best way to offer all cinematic Justice League experience with the available material. This edit vastly improves the Snyder's Cut which lacks focus. All music clip replacements work great! The footage trimming is also seamless together with a good pace and narrative. Quoting Flash's dad "ONE OF THE BEST OF THE BEST''

First of all, i LOVE ZSJL, i think that it's a great epic movie. The only thing that bothers me tho, is the sequel baits (Knightmare, Anti-Life equation, Darkseid preparing his army....) which can be cool, if Warner intends to continue the SnyderVerse, but its future is uncertain. So, god bless Gieferg for this edit, by tooking the fat from ZSJL, leaving only what is essential to the plot, and adding to it the best parts of the 2017 version, he came up with a great conclusion to Snyder's trilogy, ending on a symbol of hope.

The only thing that bothered me, is Supes and Flash race, Cavill's edited moustache is far from being unnoticeable.

First of all thank you to Gieferg for the work and time invested for us to enjoy this edit!
Secondly, I have to admit to have watched "Zack Snyder's Justice League: An Unbridled Rampage" on YouTube (on Mauler's channel) which really opened my eyes and made me overthing the entire Snyder-Whedon "fan war". I don't want to go into the "he is soo this or that" or "this scene is soo him" but be a bit more objective.

I did not like the opening credits, this made me feel too much like watching a Game of Thrones episode, I wished there was something that could be done about that, more subtle and in the background, I don't have a perfect solution for that, but many good movies do not need this "TV show opening", like Lord of the Rings for example or so many others.

The music changes/choices that Snyder made, for example in the Aquaman scene when he finishes the bottle and jumps into the water or the "new" Flash scene where he rescues the girl really got me out of it. After all it is still an action movie and to play slow emotional music in a badass scene never works for me personally. I wished more "exciting" music would have been used here. Also, I wished the scene was cut, when the "nordic women" sing this weird acoustic song forever after Aquaman goes back into the ocean.

I wished that some scenes from the theatrical or ultimate cut would have been kept, for instance the one where Aquaman sits on Wonder Woman's rope which let's us learn more about his motivations. Or the longer version at the cemetery where Flash and Cyborg talk about being the "accidents" which is a neat bonding scene in my opinion.

I definitely liked that new Steppenwolf version was used and that many of the ZS versions were left in there. And I liked many cuts and transitions, for instance the cut when Wonder Woman kills the terrorist guy with the hat by blowing up half of the floor, which is really not needed to see and was a questionable decision on her part anyway since there are kids sitting behind her. On a last note, I never liked that scene where she stands on the statue on top of the roof watching down on the bank where the terrorists do their thing: 1. this is spider man's and batman's thing to do since the are both areal, wonder woman mostly walks so the roof thing is not in character for her, 2. it must have looked so weird when she climbed up this statue, what was the purpose of this? did she see more on top of the statue than on top of just the roof? So although this would have needed some extra editing in terms of cuts and musical edits but her standing on top of the statue would have been good if it was cut. It's funny when Snyder has this aura of "making super hero movies for grown ups" and then let's them stand on statues for no apparent reason :)

It is always a hard balance if you have a more character-based version that is too humorous and a version that is almost impressionistic with less text and more feel- and vision-based (wants us to feel a certain way). These two vision of the directors are so different, but offer different interesting views on how this movie should have been.
I think any editor that undergoes this specific project has to choose to have the resulting movie have a tight story with well developed characters (and leave away everything else that distracts from this task) or a movie that focuses on showing the audiences scenes and making them listen to music purely to make them feel a certain way when watching.

It's like reading a compelling book or spending a day in Disneyland with the kids. Both takes us on a ride but the means are different, one uses our brains/communication while the other targets the heart/emotions more directly.

And lastly it takes a lot of technical ability to combine these two sources since they have totally different aspect ratios, colors, quality, etc.

I feel the editor put so much time and work into this to create his favorite subjective version, which was really interesting to see and made many good choices to create a very good fanedit. It may not be my favorte but i very much appreciate the effort and thank the editor for letting us see his version! :)

" for instance the one where Aquaman sits on Wonder Woman's rope which let's us learn more about his motivations."

I like this scene and tried to do that, but it didn't work well enough for this edit. Later I've decided that it' works good enough for Grindhoused edit and put it in there.
