Looks like they’re in a mosh pit and Batman is trying to livestream the concert on his smart phone.

This is pretty bad all the way around. Will wait for a superior Steelbook as Iím sure there will a few to choose from.

Terrible cover. Why not use that shot of the 6 Leaguers from the end of the film? Thatís way better than this one.

I really do not like the exterior or interior of this. This feels cobbled together last-minute

As someone who is a fan of this film, I have to say:

I am NOT a fan of this artwork at all...

I sincerely hope that the US release from Best Buy is completely different because this design is super lackluster.

I mean, come on! It's Zack Snyder's Justice League! Surely the cover can be better.

In my opinion, even if they just took the regular black and white poster with all the characters and slapped it on the front, it would be infinitely better.

Like this one for example:

I still don't understand why people expect SteelBooks to have decent art.

Decent art is for regular amaray releases and premium retailers who pay for the art for their releases.

WWA SteelBooks get the "alternative" art that the studios give them to use.

I would prefer a blank, plain black steelbook with the letters ZSJL and a plain logo in spot gloss. Make it look like a perfume brand.

And on the back cover, how about a close up pic of Grumpy Cat (I mean Steppenwolf)?

And on the interior, why don't they use that freeze frame in the movie where the crew are speeding together in the one shot?

Aside from Premium steelbook labels, there is still hope....
Possible Netherlands/France and German steelbook art:

(The left one being the best art IMO)

Those are just placeholder artworks. They will be changed to the HMV one, once the Steelbooks are officially announced in both countries.

What's with Batman's arm?

I appreciate they're trying something different, but *sigh*...

Guess I can put a Snyder cut disc in my Jim Lee steel.

I will wait for a later release with different artwork.

There has got to be a better release with more readable font.

Well, speaking for myself, since steelbooks typically cost more, I think studios should pick decent artwork or the better cover for them.

It's a win/win. They sell more copies of the more expensive version and the fans/collectors get better artwork.

The regular releases are meant for less enthusiastic fans who probably don't care that much about the artwork to begin with.

That's just how I personally see it.

The original French FNAC exclusive probably looks the best: https://www.hidefninja.com/community...-france.91237/

But a ton more copies are sold of the regular (amaray) editions (usually poster art) compared to SteelBooks so they put the better art on the regular editions.

Like I said previously, the rights for better art for SteelBooks is sold to the "premium" retailers such as Blufans, Filmarena, Mantalab, HDZeta and so on.
