The only way to rescue Justice League is to shoot the four (or more) prequel movies required to establish the characters and the arcs that bring them together.

There is something utterly, totally, and completely futile about this Justice League movie.

\Makes me glad I didn't bother to watch it.

Terrible movie from start to finish, MST3K-worthy, and no amount of Zack Snyder will fix it.

HugeMistake: The only way to rescue Justice League is to shoot the four (or more) prequel movies required to establish the characters and the arcs that bring them together.


It all boiled down to greed. DC execs saw Avengers make $1.5B and Marvel used some second-tier supes to start it. They figured they could throw Batman and Superman together and print money. They rushed to get it out because they had to compete and cash in on the team-up craze.

What ended up happening was their big tent pole team-up movie's worldwide gross was only $34M higher than Avenger's domestic. As you said, they didn't invest and build up excitement. IMO, the best movie they've come out with involved a character who wasn't even in it. Shazam was solid throughout and didn't focus on just connecting to the others.

Zack Snyder sucks at story telling... he makes some pretty pictures. I mean Although Sucker Punch blew as a story the sexploitation was phenomenal.

It was something that didn't exist, until enough people insisted that it did exist.  Then other people decided to make it exist.  And now the people who insisted that it did exist feel vindicated, even though they were completely wrong.

Hang on, am I on the right tab?

If it involves Thomas Wayne giving Martha a pearl necklace, I'm interested.
 
2020-09-24 12:21:30 AM  
I wonder if Synder is a really nice and likeable guy. A lot of the main leads in Justice League seem to prefer him to Whedon. It might also explains why he keeps getting work, and why WB won't get rid of him. Even though his movies with them are kind of meh.

They could have had Kevin Smith read action comics #1 and #27 and made 500 Million.  That is how popular those 2 heroes are.  The Justice League was only marginally better than that would have been.

The best Justice League is the Vought 7.

I feel bad for DC. Aside from Gal Gadot, there really isn't anything interesting to watch in that universe.

Agreed on Shazam, and what's weird about that movie is how it is fairly openly a repudiation of the other DC movies.

To be fair, he hadn't completed filming his version, including any pickups he might have required when they started editing. They are only filming for about a week. So it's not that outrageous to say that he had a rough version that just needed a few more scenes.

HugeMistake: The only way to rescue Justice League is to shoot the four (or more) prequel movies required to establish the characters and the arcs that bring them together.


This is correct. You can't really fix Jusrice League because it's built on a foundation of sand and shiat.  You would have to fix Batman v Superman first as that is the worse movie by far.  You can leave Man of Steel as the starting point for Superman, fine.  It's flawed, but fine, whatever.  Need a lot more ground work to establish Batman and Lex to even come close to justifying motivations that come in BvS.  Also need to establish WW, Aquaman, and Flash at the minimum before Justice League, rather than having WW just sit down in BvS and watch trailers for them.

Seriously, at this point, WB should burn the entire thing down.  Start over with new creative directors, a new vision, new actors, etc.  Put in the work to build the universe properly.  Seriously, you have the most iconic and recognized superheroes.  I think the top 3 name recognition heroes are Superman, Batman, and Spiderman (Marvel).  WW, Aquaman, and Flash have very high recognition as well.  The audience is there for this stuff.  How can you fark this up?

Justice League backstories worthy of a movie. Most are already done.

Wonder Woman, check. The Flash, waiting (also Flashpoint). Aquaman, check (still can't believe they pulled that off). Batman, no, everyone knows the origin. Superman, check. Cyborg (would have been interesting but the movie left zero room for an origin plot). Shazam, check. Others I would like to see with a brief origin story:

Green Lantern.
Martian Manhunter.

So let me get this straight:  Zack Snyder is going to shoot additional scenes for his version of Justice League even though the initial plan for the "Snyder Cut" was for Snyder to take the scenes that was edited out of the theatrical cut (edited out by Snyder or Whedon or both....who the fark knows at this point?) of Justice League and reedit the movie the way Snyder would have done so in the first place before he left/was fired from the film. Which leaves me to conclude that all the Snyder fans who pleaded and petitioned to see the lauded, holy grail "Snyder Cut" of Justice League have been totally and completely conned.

This Justice League film isn't the "Snyder Cut"; there's not a damn thing being "cut" from this movie! Hours are being added to it! The Justice League is a four-hour plus movie and counting! It's two whole films and then some! It's a mother farkin' mini series!

And the kicker about all of this is that Snyder's previous two films in this DC film/cinematic universe/whatever - Man of Steel and Batman vs. Superman - have both been underwhelming, at best. At worst, the general consensus for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice in particular is that it's a piece of shait (and is rumored to be the reason why Snyder was supposedly fired from Justice League).

So why in the world did Warner Bros. give millions of dollars to Zack Snyder to do this "Snyder Cut" when his previous efforts for them had been such box office disappointments? I don't get how they see getting a big profit from all of this.

I just don't get it.

One correction. Snyder left because his daughter killed herself. Not fired.

I still think he is a crap director unless you want a grimdark movie, but the reason he left was very understandable.

I thought that was what blowing studio execs was for.

A flashback of Bruce/Bats watching his mom's pearls falling but done Inception-style, BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM effect as the pearls fall yet fold inward to then project outward.
