Weak. He just doesn't want to bother growing that mustache again.

Cavill played Sherlock Holmes in Netflix Enola Holmes. It's set in Victorian era England and the dude is so buff he looks like he's from another planet compred to everybody else. It's hilarious.

Reshoots for a movie that was released 3 years ago.

I think they already have a 'stache of footage from the initial shoot.

Just like Peter Cushing didn't shoot any new footage for Rogue One.

Fun fact, the mold created for Peter Cushings role in Top Secret! was used to make the CG model in Rogue One.

If he's not going to shave that damn mustache I completely support this decision.

Ok here is the plan.  The Flash movie ends with him realizing that his time travel warning is BvS altered history so he goes back, prevents it, and the Snyder films are erased from the timeline.

He's shooting The Witcher now, so they'd have to CGI out his white wig.

I can't imagine how you recut that piece of shiat to make it a good film.  This isn't exactly the studio butchering "The Magnificent Ambersons" or making Leone slash 2 hours out of "Once Upon a Time In America."  I don't think there's anything great in what we didn't already see.

To be honest I don't think what Snyder shot is what he pitched the studio.  There is no way they would have greenlit a project that indulgent, so I'm thinking once filming began he just started adding to the story because WB had already sunk 300 million into it and couldn't call the movie off or delay until a new director could be found.

Schrodinger's Cut!  Actually, as this video from last year does a great job explaining, the Snyder Cut did and did not exist simultaneously.  Snyder did put together a rough work print before leaving "Justice League," but being a work print it was missing many key thinks like special effects, filters, music, it was just storyboard in certain places, and it still needed to be edited down to theatrical length.  Nothing anyone in their right mind would call a movie.  However, that did mean a version of the film assembled by Snyder did exist.

That's probably not the worst idea.  I thought Cavill was pretty good Superman, giving him a clean slate to work with could yield some pleasant results.

I think this is Snyder's sneaky way of trying to get into the same conversation as Lucas and Spielberg when people are talking about movies.  Lucas added pointless scenes to the re-release of the original Star Wars, and Spielberg took the guns out of the hands of the agents in E.T. Maybe Zack just wants to call in his leads to photo bomb each other during their solo scenes so he can call it "his" cut.

The beauty of it is that a Flashpoint is already established lore.  Even the die hard Snydesuckers would have to(grudgingly) accept it as comic book faithful.

Pretty much.  And from the explanation about work prints and picture lock in the video (4:36-7:30), it sounds like they're fluid and will be revised closer and closer to what will become the theatrical edit as the film gets closer to completion.

Yeah, they never shot the framing scenes that revealed Bruce and Clark were actually inmates in a corrupt asylum that rented them out as male prostitutes, and as a defense mechanism, they imagined they were really interpretive dancers instead, and their dances told the tale of two cr

Obviously everyone who proclaims they know the truth have never worked with a 'creative' before. It's not that it wasn't shot, it's that over a few years he's still changing his mind or refining things. Tolkien worked on Lord of the Rings 20+ years after their release until he died.

The reason artists can't be trusted is this. If you gave one a block of marble, they'd keep at it until all that was left was rubble. The person paying for the work has to walk in from time to time and say 'That's good enough' or nothing will get done. Da Vinci finished nearly nothing in his lifetime, as well. Kubrick went for 127 takes for one scene in the Shining. And no, I'm not comparing Snyder to any of them, but it's the same mentality. In 10 years he'll have new ideas and would love to rework stuff. It's the business side that gets things finished. Stop clutching the pearls because he wants to reshoot half the movie. be shocked HBO is paying for it. I'd bet real money most of what he's doing now didn't exist on paper when he left the project.

Will it be any good? Who knows, not trying to fight that fight, but that's just how people like that operate.

I watched it and did not even notice because I just associate Cavill as being a large human being. It just seemed normal because it's basically, yeah, that's Henry, he's supposed to be that big. What's the problem...oh, right, he's supposed to be Sherlock from the Victorian era.

/  I liked Enola Holmes and thought Henry did a good job playing Sherlock.
// Millie Brown playing Enola was also excellent.

I liked it too. Seemed like they set up a sequel there so here's hoping they follow through.

I have to admit, I've been watching a lot of "Teen Titans Go!" while working at home during lockdown.  I should probably check to see if "Teen Titans Go to the Movies" is on one of my streaming services.

Teen Titans vs Teen Titans Go was also good. It has some surprisingly heartfelt moments stashed into an extremely silly story.

Something as banal as people in goofy costumes punching other people in goofy costumes over. a MacGuffin  hasn't worked since 2012, when The Avengers was basically just a proof-of-concept.

The best post-Avengers comic book movies have all been twists on the genre.  Comedies, heist movies, parodies, space operas, spy thrillers.

Justice League's Generic Superhero Action Movie was dated in 2017.  It's going to be worse in 2020.

Can confirm. Comissioned my girlfriends best friend do a custom drawing of us for a anniversary present last year in August. She's disabled so I gave her a really loose timeline of when I needed it done and emphasized no rush. Sends me update pictures for a week or 2 and then..... nothing. Anniversary was in Oct. December rolls around and I finally lose my cool as politely as I could "So what needs to happen for this thing to get done"

3 hours later she sent me the finished picture. My girlfriend laughed and said "As a graphic designer, I can confirm that we work better (or at all) under pressure. Next time you deal with a artist, set a hard date"

It's better than that. With the CW Crisis bridging that universe with the film universe, after the CW Flash had already brought in other previously unrelated universes (like the 90's flash show), DC is basically throwing everything into a blender and making all of DC live action canon via a multiverse. After the Flash movie finally makes it truly official DC will be free to create, drop, or combine any of their live action properties at will. If a movie fails, they can just ignore it. If it's successful, they can lead it into a previously unrelated movie. This also applies it only a specific character was well received in an otherwise bad movie such as Harley.

For example The Joker did great, so if the new Batman takes off suddenly Phoenix's Joker is the sparkly vampire dudes Joker and nobody can say he isn't, because multiverse baby! It gives them a blank check to make whatever they want without all the buildup the Marvel movies required. They can even have multiple versions of the same character headlining movies with different directors and tones and see what sticks. A Man of Steel 2 with Cavill and a Kingdom Come film starring Brandon Routh, anyone?

Not saying this is a good thing. It's kinda cheating and lazy when you really get down to it and will confuse the hell out of the average movie goer. But I admit I'm interested in seeing where they're going with it.

So, are people still pretending that this "Snyder Cut" of JL is somehow going to be a totally different and, therefore, better film than the one released in theaters?

Cuz I think that is just ADORABLE.

I wouldn't feel too badly about Cavill. The DC movies aren't great, but they have to be the biggest paychecks he ever received.
