The social media embargo for the upcoming Justice League film has officially been lifted, and the reactions are overwhelmingly positive!
Many people were skeptical after learning that the full review embargo wouldn’t lift until a couple days before the film, but then yesterday it was announced that the social media embargo would lift today at 9am PST. This news actually helped bolster some positivity and quieted some of the fan dissent.
Several members of the press and the professional blogging community were treated to a private screening of the film, and now they’ve finally been able to open up a bit about what they saw. It seems that the overall reactions to the film are that it’s a fun film with heart, and the actual Leaguers are portrayed very well. There are apparently some flaws though, including a thin story (most likely due to the WB mandated 2 hour runtime), and a weak, CGI-heavy villain.
But even with the flaws, it seems the film is still very enjoyable, and is a great step forward for DC’s film universe.
Check out some of the reactions below, and be sure to see Justice League when it hits theaters on November 17th.
They did it😊 Justice League is wonderful. Heartfelt, funny, but with high stakes and consequences. They address and fix many peoples issues with BvS, but in ways it helps the story and characters. So many surprises you all have no idea about. #justiceleague

Here it goes … #JusticeLeague is super thin and has some very weak CG but it’s got heart and a positive vibe that works. Overall, I had a pretty good time and am looking forward to seeing more of these characters.

JUSTICE LEAGUE! It's okay. Narratively it's a mess, the stakes don't work & the villain isn't great. HOWEVER, the heroes ARE great, it's funny, & there's some surprisingly effective character work. I didn't love it, but there are enough good pieces to excite me for the future. pic.twitter.com/OY4ARJ5vDY

#JusticeLeague was good & very fun. It’s going to be popular w/audiences, not only fans but mainstream viewers & families.

Justice League is better than expected, but not a home run. The interaction between the team is a lot of fun. The film sends the DCEU in a hopeful direction in line with where the brand should be headed. Flash and Aquaman steal the show. Cyborg and villain are the weak links.

Justice League is the DC team up you've been waiting for. I had so much fun from beginning to end. The expansion of DC mythology will make fans go nuts. Superman though!

Bottom line: JUSTICE LEAGUE is awesome!
ZACK SNYDER’s film is filled with so many moments that had me geeking out and crying nerd tears. When an action scene/hero moment hits, the film is firing on all cylinders.
Still love Affleck’s BATMAN. My fav Batman actor since Keaton. pic.twitter.com/YKZTbVJL7D

JUSTICE LEAGUE could’ve been the SUPERNOVA (look it up) of Superhero films. Thankfully, that seems to not be the case. A win for ME!!!

General reaction social embargo for JUSTICE LEAGUE is up. Initial thoughts: It’s THE comic movie from DC/WB that you wanted! Everyone shines. Barry Allen / The Flash is the real MVP. Comedy. Drama. Action. Surprises. Yeah, go see it!

I saw #justiceleague & It's really good!!! Strong film. #WonderWoman did her amazing thing. #Batman came to play. #Cyborg is a star. #Aquaman made me pumped 4 his film. The pacing is perfect. Zack & Joss blended together well. Oh & you're gonna wanna stay until the very end 😉. pic.twitter.com/wRGvcAg2Hn
