- Some fans are offended by the violence, while others question its necessity.
As everyone knows, the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League has often sparked new conversations and debates among ardent DC fans. Despite being praised for its gritty and darker tone, the epic superhero flick has left many fans torn, especially after a particularly graphic fight scene starring Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.
The willingness of superheroes to kill villains varies from time to time, especially in big-budget movies. But some die-hard DC fans are offended by this gruesome scene, while others question whether the story of the movie really needed such extreme violence.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League opened with the Black Clad, a terrorist organization, storming the Old Baily Courthouse in London, killing multiple security guards, and kidnapping its occupants. Then Wonder Woman entered the courthouse and quickly took out the terrorists while they were setting off a timebomb.

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman In Zack Snyder’s Justice League Has A Gory Fight Sequence
Some superheroes are more willing than others to take down villains, especially in high-budget blockbusters. But Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman, as she made abundantly evident in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, has no qualms about taking out enemies.
Thus, Zack Snyder’s Justice League opened with a terrorist group called The Black Clad running into the Old Baily Courthouse in London, killing several security guards and kidnapping the occupants. Then Wonder Woman entered the courthouse and quickly took out the terrorists while they were setting off a timebomb. The Black Clad’s remaining members were killed with lethal force, though Wonder Woman probably caught one of them alive by interrogating him using the Lasso of Truth.
Diana Prince actually utilizes her super strength to kick and punch the terrorist’s leader across the courthouse, causing a shockwave that destroys him brutally.
Thus, before Wonder Woman would stop a group of terrorists from robbing a bank, she completely destroyed the terrorists, and that’s so extremely violent.
Fans’ Reactions: When Wonder Woman Brutally Killed A Group Of Terrorists
This particular scene occurred early in the movie when Wonder Woman rescued a group of innocent people from a dangerous terrorist hostage situation. She took extremely violent measures in her attempt to save innocent lives, which resulted in the horrifying deaths of all of her enemies. The increased amount of gore surprised a lot of people, which prompted passionate debate among enthusiasts.
Let us look at a few YouTube comments from the fans: One noted:
“Until the last bad guy where, instead of just moving fast and taking him out, she destroys the entire floor of the building and risks collapsing it onto everyone. Kind of weird.”
While one wondered:
“Though, I’m wondering when did she get as fast as the Flash?”
“It’s not dramatic. This is the wonder woman we were suppose to get cause she is a warrior/killer amazonian.”
One person added:
“They still nerfed her, this isn’t even close to how powerful she is.”
While one fan mentioned:
“Notice how the people in the background didn’t move, not even a single inch and as if they’re all statues..”
“I do enjoy the contrast of how ruthlessly efficient she was during this combat sequence and how casual and friendly she was when checking on the hostages.”
Well, like her comic book counterpart, Wonder Woman does not follow a no-kill policy but only employs lethal force when necessary.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League was finally released on March 18, 2021, after much struggle. That year, it climbed to the fourth-most-streamed film. Most reviews praised Zack Snyder’s film for being better than the 2017 theatrical release, despite some criticizing its length.
