Pre-emptively making the thread. Won't be seeing this until Friday in the early afternoon.

Although this spoilery review seems fairly legit:

I will be seeing this Thursday at 6 west US time.

Spoilers are everywhere already and the post credits scenes have leaked.

Aquaman taking it to Steppenwolf.
I can't believe he completely laid Steppenwolf out with a single hit. WTF?!

Early reviews seem to bounce between "flawed but fun" to "bloated and unnecessary". General consensus is

- not as bad as BvS
- The Flash is a standout
- Cyborg is super boring

I saw metacritic had it at about 51 percent and flixster had it at about 48 percent. Rotten tomatoes has delayed their scores.

Also it’s projected to make 75 million less world wide than BvS.

I’m afraid to go see it.

Superman is pretty OP as per some spoilers.

Most of the reviews are calling this a tonal reboot. If you skip MoS and BvS you won't be missing much because anything relevant from those is referenced accordingly and Whedon essentially saved the franchise.

Many reviewers are citing that they got the heroes very right in this including Superman but  Steppenwolf is also pointed out as being alright at best, bad by many.

In terms of raw footage about 15% of the film is Whedon apparently:

Quote
“The goal is to make sure when you’re watching the movie, it all feels cohesive. That imprint that Joss had, some aspect of it is going to come out in the direction, but the actors are already pretty much down the road on their arcs. Let’s just say 80, 85 percent of the movie is what was originally shot. There’s only so much you can do with other 15, 20 percent of the movie.”

A lot can change in the editing however (like the fact that Whedon apparently cut Luthor/Eisenberg completely out of the film).

Here is what I heard from some people who saw an advanced screening on Monday:

Waaaaay better than BvS. Much closer in quality to WW, and we get another DCCU history lesson from the Amazons. Quick cameo of an alien GL fighting a battle with Earth allies against a prior Steppenwolf invasion.

Overall good action and CGI, but at times, Superman has noticeable lip CGIing to hide Cavil’s mustache. Also a few scenes where they go from on location to blatant green screen... probably because of Whedon doing some additional shots. The movie has a quick mention of some Atlantis stuff (beyond the main mother box plot) that likely hints at the Aquaman movie.

Flash is funny but relatively new to being a hero. Steppenwolf was described as “sassy” at times, but they couldn’t explain to me what exactly made him sassy. These people hated BvS, so this was a fairly glowing review.
9 outta 10 Masters are Master.

Way better than BvS and SS is what I'm hearing too.   That is a win at this point.

There is no way Snyder should have anymore involvement in the DCEU going forward.
