Snyder said himself he would investigate options for a comics continuation, which would be the first trade I buy in years.

If the comics do well there's a decent chance WB makes an animated adaptation years later, which would be even funnier.

Yeah, dodgy facial CGI on Cavill and bad dialogue aside, I kind of liked the opening montage. But as soon as we got to the Gotham rooftop, the Batman 1989 music swelled, the whole thing lost me.

The actual worst line of dialogue delivered in a Batman movie is from Batman's parting words to Gordon in Dark Knight Rises, and it's one that could easily have been fixed by cutting out a few words instead of letting it all jumble.

(Of course, that twitter thread asserts that, conversely, MCU characters talk like real people)

What's funny about this is that both Batman & Superman explicitly prove their declarations wrong later in the film, while Lex is right but not in the way he expected. That's probably why people get confused by these movies.

I just finished rewatching MoS (haven't done so since circa Justice League). Man, for a 2.5 hour movie it really just flies along once it leaves Krypton.

I like how it spends a brief moment in present time, then takes a breather with a flashback. The present time stuff really happens at a breakneck pacing, but the flashbacks tell a story of his childhood that doesn't really outstay its welcome either.

WB doesn't really want any kind of campaign surrounding ZSJL to succeed. Note that they have the same anonymous WB execs leaking "we still hate this it still sucks" messaging to the usual suspects.

WB execs were blindsided by the critics reaction to BvS. They loved it and thought they had another Dark Knight in the bag. I even had a friend at the studio premiere who hates MoS tell me BvS was actually really good and he was surprised, standing ovation from the audience(typical of premieres though).

What WB execs are probably unhappy about right now is no matter how good they might think ZSJL is, they know Snyders vision will not make them the maximum profit possible. All they want is Marvel money and clout now and know Snyder cant deliver that. They tasted that 1bil funny with Aquman and WW, which makes it even more awkward because as long as they use those actors/characters, Snyder gets a credit and they can't ever fully escape his sphere.

It's funny to me because Snyder's production effort is how they're tasting those billion dollar box offices. Right now they're just back to fumbling one-offs and hoping to piece together another "cinematic multiverse" and they just can't stop meddling or flinging poo poo at the wall to see what sticks.

This leak is kinda hilarious because anyone coming out with intense hatred about it is admitting either:

1) they were legitimately trying to watch Tom and Jerry, or

2) they heard about a Snydercut leak and immediately dropped everything to watch as much of it as they could in an hour and start tweetin'

Tom and Jerry is supposed to be "pretty good" or so I've heard. But yeah if you legitimately were a mid-afternoon Tom and Jerry watcher what are the odds you're also simultaneously an extremely online Snyder-hater?

If you get hired for a supporting star role for a $1bn-rear end movie, that opens doors for you. He would have been on contract for 3 JL films plus supporting roles for Flash and whoever. Then he would have had his pick of projects and contracts. What's more, JL 1 was supposed to have a focus on your performance--like MoS was Cavill's, and BvS was Affleck's.

Instead the director you liked got muscled out, your entire character arc got deleted, you had to reshoot 75% of the thing under a guy with a chip on his shoulder and a hate boner for everything, everybody else shuffle off and more or less land on their feet, and then you get blackballed for even pointing this poo poo out.

If #ReleaseTheSnyderCut had a main character, it's him.

I imagine Whedon butchered the gently caress out of Steppenwolf's arrival/all the action in Themyscira.

In Josstice League the action of that entire part can best be summarized as "Hippolyta rides a horse down a football field". It was also the first big action setpiece and set the tone for the entire rest of the endeavor.

I donít think thatís entirely fair. Itís been a long time since I watched it, but I remember some cool stuff involving a few Amazons trading off the box, and some arrows with ropes on them, right? I remember it being the only kind of cool action scene in the whole movie, and thinking that maybe it had some of the few Snyder shots in it. Though obviously this looks way better.

Again, itís been a long time, I donít remember many specifics.

No, you're right. But like, the entire exterior of that sequence I remember as a basically featureless field.

I liked the Cinemablend videos because while they do come at it from the angle Josstice-League-sucks-and-Zack-Snyders-is-obviously-better they do explain why JL fell far short and what we should expect to see improved upon in ZSJL.

There's almost no chance that a JL Steppenwolf will have lines in ZSJL because his character was almost completely rebuilt by JW and even existing dialogue from ZS's cut will have been ADR'd over.
