Because Zack's betting that things might sell better if he ganked Heath Ledger's Joker look and had him utter a phrase ripped from 4Chan.

As well, he explained that DC fans may not get the ending they are hoping for in the new Justice League.

It's okay, Zack. If they're still DC fans, they're used to disappointment.

Amazed at the people who are looking forward to this.

Yes, supposedly about 75% of the movie was Joss Whedon and not Snyder, but...people saw Batman V Superman, right?

They LIKED that movie?

why are they letting this guy be joker. get heath ledger back!!!!

Long story short: Zack has the sensibilities of a teenager that's had a steady diet of Rob Liefield comics & Mountain Dew slushies their entire life.

So apparently there's a reason the Joker looks so serious again

...and that reason is ABSOLUTELY NOT that he single-handedly bombed the last franchise and scored worse with test audiences than a Hello Kitty Catwoman. It is a COMPLETELY SERIOUS AND ARTISTIC REASON so please STOP LAUGHING RIGHT NOW.

I still like the fan theory that Batman killed the original Joker for what he did to Robin, aka Jason Todd, and Jason went nuts and became the new Joker, thus explaining why he's a tatted up parody of the original.

This cut is going to be a train wreck, and since a friend gifted me an HBO account, I look forward to watching it for free.

Well yeah. I'm surprised we don't see more of this combo, honestly. It's an easy sell.

His follow up, Zack Snyder's Suicide Squad should do well.  Since he has first hand experience with it.

Is that a fan theory? I thought that was entire plot of Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker.

Tim Drake not Jason Todd in Batman Beyond.

I mean, sure. But I wouldn't call it a fan theory if it's just the recycled plot of a previous Batman movie.

I don't care if it's only a dream sequence, this grimness has been a consistent part of Snyder's DCEU films.  Much to their detriment, in my opinion.  Hey Zach, most people like super hero movies because they're fun, not because they're trying to be "Schindler's List" retreads!  Have you ever seen any of the art from the widely acclaimed Timm/Dini "Justice League" animated series?  Not sure if you heard, but they made an episode based on an Alan Moore comic that was so good, Alan Moore actually let them keep his name on it.

So Batman's psychic now? And his ears are too short.

"I will certainly do my part, whether it remain artistic or at some point venture into the political arena," said Smith.

Back up. Remain artistic?

And I don't to be lectured about racism for six hours.

I would just like to point out that so far, the only other person besides Jared Leto to legitimately portray the Joker more than once in live action was Cesar Romero.  I'm not counting Gotham, since my understanding is they made it very ambiguous.  Of the only other two people alive who are capable of doing so, Jack Nicholson is retired, and likely too old to reprise the role anyhow.  I read, had Batman & Robin not been a steaming pile of dog shiat, he was going to reprise the role in the follow-up to that.  And, of course, Joaquin Phoenix could also portray the Joker again, but how do you even attempt to make a sequel to that and have it make sense?  Or, how could you even bring him in with The Flash being able to traverse dimensions and have it make sense?  Then again, do we count that as the Joker?

I may have lost count a little, but scrolling through his IMDB, I counted roughly 26 unique credits as the Joker for Mark Hamill.

A four hour movie that's just a lead-in to two MORE movies? Two more movies that the director himself admits aren't even going to be made?

F*ck Zach Snyder. I won't bother to watch this mess on TV for free.

"Well, it was meant to be two more movies," Snyder says. "It hints, as you would, at a potential other world. I'd plant the seeds as I had wanted to of what would come in the later films. That's in there, but as far as those stories that would be to come - if ever that happened, which it does not look like it would - but I think it's easy to speculate based on that and we can talk about that for quite a while. It is a cliffhanger...the movie ends in a massive cliffhanger, yeah."


Wow. That is some shiatty filmmaking.

If you're working on it knowing you're not going to get those two extra movies to finish the story, then wouldn't it be smart to work it so your only shot at telling the story tells the whole damn story?

My loathing for modern-day Snyder is just increasing every time I'm exposed to him or his movies. He is so far from getting the point of any of these characters, it's bordering on pathetic now. It's like watching WB and AT&T kicking a mentally-disabled kid in a Batman costume while he's curled up on the floor.

Well when you use so much slow motion it tends to pad the runtime.

And his Dawn of the Dead was so good....
