Hope one of the bonus scenes is an amazonian tongue fest.

Warner Bros. Reportedly Knew JUSTICE LEAGUE Would Flop
Fans have questioned how Warner Bros. could allow Justice League to be released when Henry Cavill's CGI mouth looked so laughable and Steppenwolf's appearance differed from scene to scene. This, coupled with the fact that high-ranking figures like Joss Whedon and Geoff Johns distanced themselves from the project, has led Revenge of the Fans (h/t CBM) to compile a report alleging that Warner was always bracing for Justice League to flop. Hell, they were even expecting it.
Such a filmmaker-driven tactic will seemingly inform the likes of Aquaman and Nightwing – James Wan and Chris McKay, respectively – going forward, but for Justice League, it appears the ship had already sailed, and the doomed project was too far into production for Warner Bros. or Joss Whedon to make any real, tangible changes.
Via Revenge of the Fans:
"I remember speaking to an insider in the weeks following Justice League‘s release and them saying they “expected this.” While they conceded the fallout was, perhaps, a bit worse than anticipated, they knew that this thing was going to be a bump in the road. The studio just didn’t want to spend another dime on the film, considering all the effort that had gone into it already. They wanted to simply get it out there, get it over with, and move on to the next phase of DCU films which would act as a distinct course correction."
It’s supposedly the reason why Ciaran Hinds wasn’t brought back to reshoot select scenes for Steppenwolf even after it was made clear the plan was no longer for that to build to a sequel revolving around Darkseid.; Warner Bros. had already come to terms with Justice League failings – even if the film’s final performance turned out to be much worse than anticipated.
The studio actually blames Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for Justice League's performance, though, as execs believe it left a bad taste in the mouths of moviegoers and that doomed the sequel (of sorts) from the very start.
This was not a good movie at all. I would describe it as an awful movie with some really great moments.
Also, if the last two decades of super-hero movies didn't numb me to the disappointment of seeing my favourite childhood characters mangled on screen, I probably have much more vitriol towards this shitfest.

JUSTICE LEAGUE Deleted Scene Shows Superman's Black Suit
Wow no one cares.
WB really fcked up. With their recent flop i think DCEU should take a break from producing any super hero movies.
At this point if they wanna get back on the radar, maybe getting bought by disney/mcu (since everyone knows how successful they are) will help get them out of the hole.
I think mcu would do a better job than wb tbh
What an unforgivable crapfest. I went in with the lowest possible expectations and was still shocked at how bad it was.
I would bet any sum of money that If they ran a contest across all the high schools in America, someone would write a script infinitely better than this one.
That wouldn't fix the circa 1985 CGI, though. The one thing I would never have guessed them COMPLETELY blowing was the special effects.
sad thing is after all this, most ppl except hardcore DC extremist wont even give anything post JL a chance.
Aquaman is doomed
Yeah, I liked Ghostbusters, and I have impeccable taste.
It wasn't great but it was entertaining. Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth were really funny.
Ignore my opinions if you like.
I realized I dont care enough to argue with you about it
You brought it up, not me.
Just watched this I'd rate it a 6 and that's being generous
Liked it the first time enough- as you said McKinnon really stole it. Hemsworth has great comedic timing which is to be expected but his character did wear a little thin.
On the re watch though I really couldn’t maintain a fairly positive opinion of it. Just never felt as fun or as interesting as it could have been.
Couldn’t have imagined they’d botch a Murray cameo either but they did. How can you have bill Murray be unfunny.
Hudson and Akyroyd cameos were legit though.
Somehow, JL is actually worse overall than BvS. At least Batman vs Superman, for all it's many faults, had some great scenes. The warehouse scene was the best Batman fight ever put on screen. When Bats punched the mook so hard he face-planted through the damn floor, I had to stop myself from shouting, "FUCK YEAH!" in the cinema. The scene where the Dark Knight blocks Superman's punch and we see the, "What the fuck?!" look on Clark's face? If I'd Nerd-gasmed any harder, I would have left a wet patch on the seat.
Yeah, it had one of the worst casting decisions in cinematic history, and plot holes you could drive a Batmoble through. And yes, the introduction of Flash, Cyborg and Khal Aqua was forced and reeked of desperation. And yes, Doomsday looked like the result of drunken hate sex between an Ork and a Ninja Turtle. But with all of that, JL still managed to be a worse movie.
The first 75% of the movie was good and then it turned to shit
JL is a mess...
It's a shame because DC comics are great and the animated stuff is top notch.
First I was like
Then I realized you were talking about the SJW version.
I was disappointed with Kristen Wiig, who I like. She was boring in this.
I liked it. As I said, it wasn't great, but it wasn't bad.
