Here are five reasons why fans should watch it as it arrives on Philippine shores on HBO GO via SKY: 1. Zack Snyder’s version is four hours and two minutes long Zack Snyder’s version proves to be a jam-packed wonder for fans to experience as it promises a four-hour epic, expanding the backstories of our beloved heroes—from the introduction of Cyborg’s mother, Elinore Stone; the love interest of The Flash in Iris West; the appearance of Vulko (Willem Dafoe) and how he deepens Aquaman’s story arc; to the emotional affair between Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Superman himself. More screen time also means more action-packed scenes, more characters to behold, and provides viewers a much broader spectrum. 2. Never-before-seen, existing-footage for die-hard DC fans With its extended running time, the film promises more never-before-seen footage. Apart from the featured Justice League heroes—Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher)—fans should watch out for another member in the mix in Calvin Swanwick, also known as the Martian Manhunter (Harry Lennix). Fierce adversary Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello) also has extended scenes in the film, while Ryan Choi (Zheng Kai) expands his role for viewers to unravel. Fans can watch the triumph of the Justice League against Akropolis’ nightmare, Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), in its extended glory, along with the first-time appearance of apocalyptic god Darkseid and the haunting return of Jared Leto’s Joker.
