Donít understand people saying to cut the Flash intro. That whole sequence is a masterclass in introducing a superhero - you meet the hero, get a snapshot of his character that tells you everything you need to know (wonít shut up, goofy, bit of a fuckup but he still tries, good hearted) and also wordlessly establishes his powers and their limitations (heís unbelievably fast but that speed is only limited to himself personally, if he isnít exceedingly gentle then anything he touches gets disintegrated) and is just flat out funny and charming as a scene. Not even in the first ten of scenes Iíd cut, and I definitely could think of things to cut off I was asked to.

The 4:3 is good because 4:3 is closer to the more vertical panel layouts of comics, and thus snyder is able to compose shots that feel more like comic panels and page spreads than would be otherwise possible in 1.85 or 2.35.

E: the shot of Cyborg looking out of the ruined window straight up feels like a full page comic book title page, for instance.

This may be just a DC Comics thing, but I have no clue what the gently caress the deal with the Anti-Life Equation is. It's like a mathematical formula that makes you go insane? Why would an equation be "on a planet"? And why only one planet??

The anti-life equation is one of things thatís wildly different in form from version to version but usually has the net nature of ďis some kind of elemental proof that, when witnessed, brings absolute despair to the person that comprehends it.Ē In a much earlier version of justice league (pitched as a trilogy) that Zack released concept art of recently, the equation was a logic puzzle that the riddler solved, and then promptly blew his brains out in front of batman.

also I don't understand why superman is being evil here instead of just amnesiac

last time the scout ship was used to bring someone back to life it turned them into a giant murdertumor bent on the destruction of all life, and adding a dastardly sugar cube to the mix probably wasn't doing all that much to specifically counteract the evil part

If you do some side by sides, there are definitely some cropped and squished shots to make 4x3 in the Snyder cut. Notably some of the shots during speed-force time in the fight against Superman, and some of the shots in the Wonder Woman opening fight had the sides of the image cropped.

From what I noticed most of the ďcroppedĒ parts of the Snyder version are sections where itís largely CG image, so itís not actually cropped, theyíre just eliminating some of the set extensions added for Whedonís version.

He has a few adopted children. It's hard for me to separate that knowledge from his storytelling of Superman as an adopted immigrant or Cyborg's "I'm not alone" line.

also interesting in light of his abandoned initial plans for justice league 2 and 3, where superman (having disassociated from his human identity after dying and identifying solely as Kal-El, the kryptonian) regains his humanity through raising bruce's son with Lois.

Iíve got a question about Darkseid and Steppenwolf.

Are there Amazons and Atlanteans elsewhere in the universe? Or are they specific to Earth? Steppenwolf seems to recognize them, which means either heís been to earth before, or heís faced them elsewhere in the universe.

When Darkseid first came to earth and lit the ground up with runes, did he know heíd just found the Anti-Life Equation? Because Steppenwolf seeing the runes seems to be what clued him in.

I ask because if thatís the case, it seems like one of them might be a little slow on the uptake.

So Darkseid found the runes, knew what he was looking at, fought Amazons and Atlanteans, and then lost.
Then Steppenwolf shows up, sees Amazons and Atlanteans, and should have instantly known the Anti-Life Equation was there because theyíre the ones who kicked Darkseidís rear end the first time he found the Equation.

So either:
Darkseid didnít know what the runes meant when he first saw them (but Steppenwolf somehow did)
Steppenwolf didnít know A&As were present at the first battle (but he knows what they are when he sees them).

Also who was the person to Darkseidís left? Not Desaad, the one with the pike. Are they a comic character, or just a random lieutenant or something?


My take was: Darkseid was the only one who knew that Anti-Life was on earth, neither Desaad or Steppenwolf were aware of this particular fact because they werenít there. However, Darkseid didnít know Steppenwolf was conquering earth specifically, because heís been having Desaad screen his calls and likely didnít give a poo poo about what steppenwolf was doing aside from ďis he keeping up with his quotas? Good.Ē Hence, he didnít realize what Stepoenwolf had found until desaad comes to him with the good news.

As for your last question: thatís Granny Goodness, Darkseidís other major underling, who is mostly known in the comics for being Darkseidís chief slavemaster and torturer, responsible for brainwashing and conditioning prisoners into loyal subjects and terror troops.

Sure but I meant more his movie filmography.

Khan's presence isn't a mystery, his "reveal" is only to the characters within the story, we already know everything about him. And even Kirk and crew know he's a bad guy before they talk to him.

Khan was absolutely intended to be a ~wild shocking reveal,~ to the point that JJ actually straight up lied to people who asked if cumberbatch was playing khan.

It's very funny that Zod's people travel the stars and terraform worlds rather than just have sex.

I believe the common joke is that Zod spends the movie ranting about how they need the codex to repopulate his species when he's got a beautiful woman dedicated to his cause standing right there.

It's funny cause Whedon pushed hard for the awful Cap costume in the first Avengers movie. Whedon isn't embarrassed by dumb cape poo poo, he just has bad taste

the best part about that is how the standard defense line was "WELL cap's outfit has always been goofy, how could you possibly make it look good!?!?!?!?" despite that it was both coming off a movie where they'd done a pretty good retro adaptation of it and also how every suibsequent version managed to not look nearly as doofus assed
