Finally saw this.  I was happy that it was no longer a bad movie am trying to figure out if it was good.

I enjoyed nearly all of the changes as they made more sense and the film's tone was much more consistent in that the original was jarring by having 2 directors.  Comic crossovers can have the same issue with multiple writers.

The character interactions were better and they each had more purpose in the overall story and were not rendered useless when Supes showed up.

I watched it in installments to address the length.  A huge chuck of the length could have been from excessive slow mo.   :)

I truly feel bad for Ben Affleck.  It is my understanding that he truly loves comics and it must hurt to get to play 2 great superheroes in movies that were not received well.

Re:  The Abyss.  I liked the original cut even with the end.  I like the directors cut even more.

One issue with doing that is the runtime.
Putting this on theatrically means taking out a 5 hour gap in a theatre's schedule which they could easily fill with two other films (new releases at that) that they knew will bring in more punters.
Theatres need maximum revenue right now, and something like Kong vs Godzilla will do that. Whereas ZSJL will likely not.

Yeah this weekend KONG vs GODZILLA reached the $400 million mark at the global box office: pretty outstanding considering it was released on HBO Max day & date of theatrical release! 
I think I read MORTAL KOMBAT made around $50 million globally too.

Looks like the WB/HBO plan hasn't been too bad after all.... ;D

It's causing havoc in other countries though. Most other territories don't have HBOMax and theatres not open, so piracy is rife and will hurt WB at the global box office.
