It’s pretty hilarious that the Snyderverse has turned into a sword of damacles hanging over the suits at Warner Bros.

Jack Kirby sends his regards.

Grant Morrison himself couldnt make a better story of materialised authorial revenge against manager/editorial greed persisting through impossible odds

SEXY... defines my posts and my ride


I found it interesting that "Comanche Realty" was the institution that was foreclosing Martha's property. (I didn't realize there is actually a Comanche County, Kansas, and in the movie I think maybe it's presented as a city of Comanche)

Then I just watched Hell or High Water, in which a pair of brothers rob different branches of the same bank to prevent that very bank from foreclosing on their mother's ranch by paying their stolen money right back to them. And the movie also repeatedly references the Comanche people, explaining that the origin of that name comes from being viewed as a kind of generic "enemy," seeming to imply that capitalism is turning all of the world's (or at least Texas's) underclass into a kind of generic colonized group and linking them to the Comanche people.

I wonder if it's an intentional reference, but either way I thought that was kind of cool.

I've probably watched that entire scene 50+ times now, it might be the coolest thing I've ever seen on film. And every time I get to the (spectacular) ending of the clip I loving lol that WB had this movie in the barrel and decided to gut it and give us tit jokes and some random family.

The loving Jets/Knicks of movie studios, I swear. Get out of your own way you morons. Or stay in your own way, just get out of your loving directors' ways so they can do cool poo poo like ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE.

It's a sign of the times that capitalist anxiety is dictating loving color grading.

I honestly didn't think they'd do the "what if man of steel was in color???" meme, but the Whedon Cut confirms exactly that.

This particular image was shot by Snyder, but was only used in the Whedon cut. It was very easy to approximate the Snyder Cut look:



Again, for the most part, they literally just cranked up the saturation and cut the contrast.

Marvel's "house style" forever seemed to be graded so there was no actual blacks, just a dark gray as the darkest color.

Whedon just extended that to editing the non-white characters mostly out of the movie.

You did a super job wrapping things up! And I'm not just saying that because I have to!

Zack Snyder and Chris Terrio discussed alternate names for BvS on this livestream con thing, and all their names suck lol. "Son of Sun, Knight of Night" from Zack, "Batman And Superman" or "Justice League: Rising" from Chris. I kind of like BvS, if I'm honest. It's kind of campy and silly, and it's nice and short

It really did sound like every single proposed name sucked rear end, and Zack outright stated that he let the studio make the final call because he felt like he was getting away with murder in the script.

Those were Chris Terrio, Snyder (perhaps wisely) wasn't drawn on what his preferred choice was I don't think.

There's some real good stuff in the JusticeCon2021 panels

Joe Mangienello talked about deathstrokes film, how it was about political and about the military, and talked about how he imagined the role and how he prepared for it.

Chris Terrio joined Zack on a panel, and said he wrote Barry as someone with ADHD ("Like me or Zack")

Wayne T Carr confirmed as Zacks GL, and they shot the scene with him and J'onn visiting Batman, but Zack warned Wayne up front he might not be in the film. Zack got introduced to Wayne via Ray Fisher
They were also gonna have Kilowog in the scene.

Zack, Chris, Joe Mangienello and Ray Porter all would sign up for sequels if it came to that.

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice: Ultimate Edition is like the Martha scene, where your dumb brain thinks it’s bad because it’s structurally flawless.

Lately, my favorite part is the subtitle’s implication that it is the first in a series of Batman v Superman movies.

I always wanted World's Finest for an eventual Batman/Superman crossover movie, but it wouldn't have worked for the story in BvS.

Remember the Batman/Superman movie poster teased in I Am Legend? I wonder if that played a small role in shaping up expectations. (Just realized that Will Smith would eventually be face to face with Batman a few years later too).
