Justice League

That's surprising news. I'd assumed that the fact the Superman and Lois CW TV series was being produced was a sign that WB had no plans to bring back the character in movies in the near future.

Poor old Snyder, he don’t half get a hard ride on here.

 

I would rate 2 of his films as 4/5 and one at 5/5

 

I think I’m going to set up a fan club for him. 

 

Which ones? I liked his Dawn of the Dead but other than that he's really only made terrible movies.

apart from "the one change"*, his Watchmen adaption was pretty good. :blah:

 

* and I've not watched the version with Tales of the Black Freighter

Hmm. He might have been talking about the other one change: taking what was a hobson's choice of a option (kill 10,000 to save billions giving the reader the thought that they might have been following the wrong hero throughout) to a damn as crap Hollywood finale (kill tens of millions to save billions, cue evil maniacal teenage laugh of the direxxxtor). 

 

Although tbh I don't know whether to blame the script writers for that or Snyder. Snyder probably.  The film did look fabulous though.although arguably the best bit (the credits) were outsourced to another company.

Caught this on netflix, it's the very definition of average. I think Affleck though is a great Batman and just about pulls the film up to something not actually bad. The main issue was the lack of character development, Cyborg's backstory was all tell don't show and I didn't care why he was sulking. Most of the dialogue was this:

 

"will you help us punch big cgi man?"

"no, I cannot, I am too sad about events in my past..." [knowing look to middle distance]

"I too have sad events in my past."

"just like me?! even though we are so different?! I will now come and punch things and be thrown at walls"

My god! That doesn’t look like a shite Snyder movie at all! Somehow his complete inability to write and hateful personal philosophy have evaporated!

 

Oh wait no it looks literally exactly the same as every other completely shit movie he’s ever put his shit name on so morons have something to stare at.

Darkseid is supposed to be Marvel's Thanos (although I think Darkseid came before), you wouldn't think it the way he's being shoehorned in here. It's like if in the original Avengers Loki spent three quarters of the film being the main villain only for Thanos to turn up with half an hour to go and start fighting everyone. Marvel spent multiple movies slowly teasing his arrival and then in Infinity War they gave so much time to his backstory it was practically his movie. This is the opposite.

 

But then Snyder has form with this type of storytelling, what with Doomsday popping up in similar fashion in BvS.

 

Just imagine if they had that sort of slow build storytelling in the DCEU. Say what you will about the CW Superhero shows, they spent 5 years building up to Crisis on Infinite Earths and it was a blast. They didn't rush it in a year.

1273001002631933952?s=20Someone said the only reason they could work out why they chose a character so unknown and nothing-going-for-him as Steppenwolf is he has a big horned helmet and halberd like weapon like Loki in Avengers.

 

I could see the execs operating on that level of ultra-safe cargo-culting tbh.

We grew up in a largely Beano Vs Dandy culture. If there was a local comic store that would allow me to grow up with the real thing I undoubtably would have.

 

I used my pocket money at the local newsagents and filled out the sticker book for the premier league 96. Haven’t watched a single match of football in my life, much less cared about the result.


It’s in the distant past. Maybe it would have been the same if I had access to DC or Marvel this or that, but I suspect not. There were so many cartoons!

Whedon was already embroiled in scandal when the movie came out, to the point there were neither of the 2 directors on the red carpet.

 

Hard to find a movie that had so many things go wrong as this.

More has just come out about him openly trashing the work Snyder had done to the special effects team.

 

From what I can tell, that comes from Kevin Smith's comments in this livestream. In the clips below he breaks down the Fisher's tweet word-by-word, and he says that the "unprofessional" accusation could refer to what he heard from a VFX person who was on-set for both Snyder's principal photography and Whedon's reshoots:

 

 

 

The full thing is from 1:33:40 in this video (the discussion goes on for about 15 minutes afterwards):

Wait has Whedon actually done something gross? Or is his crime alighting about Zac Snyder’s shit movie that he had to fix? Because that’s hilarious, not gross.

Apparently he was really unprofessional on set.

 

Probably the worst thing is the scene where The Flash accidentally falls on top of Wonder Woman before quickly jumping off. Gal Gadot didn't want to do it and instead of listening to one of the stars he thought fuck it and just filmed it with a stunt double. It's really clear when you watch because you never see her face.

I think the accusations of unprofessional about laughing at Snyder really shouldn’t be getting lumped in with gross shit like that. One of them is a disgusting abuse of his position and the other one is liable to create sympathy for him from the lolz of him laughing at VDZS’s crapness.

It is highly unlikely that the Snydercut is going to be any good because

 

1 - Snyder is a bad director

 

2 - it's going to be cobbled together out of god knows what

 

3 - Snyder is a bad director

I think it'll be good for DC comic book fans, kinda like BvS you need to subconsciously fill in the blanks.

Um nope, as a pretty big fan of DC it's not so much filling in the blanks it's more like filling in the universal void between what these characters are and how far from understanding them in anyway, Snyder is.

Haha yeah i guess, you kinda have to buy into the grimdark Snyderverse too

How do you buy into something that makes no sense? Even basic human behaviour is beyond Snyder’s skill to depict. 

I dunno, I mostly enjoyed his reboot in Man of Steel and the rest just kinda builds from there (with the prerequisite retconning and reworking to fit with the new verse...)

 

Like all comic reboots I guess??
