A directors cut rarely moves a rating much for me.  It might bring a good movie from an '8' to an '8.5'.  With Justice League being a '4' in my books, why should I care?

I legit don't understand Snyder fans.

When I was younger, I always had comic book fans pinned as being a bit more appreciative of the medium; like being able to understand the themes and characters. Now, I just see a lot of comic book fans as "hUrR ViOlEnCe cOoL," thanks to Snyder.

They want it to go away to get Ray Fisher to STFU

Look, as long as the hogs get their slop, they're happy.

Snyder is a hack and the crying of his fanboys when people hate the 'Snyder cut' will be delicious.

Aww - does this mean we're not going to get his next two four-hour films in this trilogy? Cause if you're not going to let him tell the whole story that's, like, censorship and cancel culture. Can't judge or critique it if it isn't complete.
 
2021-03-03 8:28:50 AM  
Who knows?  But, this does seem plausible:

Sutton claims it was WB's parent company AT&T that picked up on the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign, saw an opportunity to cash in on the buzz and demanded that it be put into action. With its release imminent, WB apparently has a serious "lack of faith in the project" and "simply want it to go away." Sutton even says that they dropped the news that J.J. Abrams is working on a Superman reboot last week to pivot attention away from the Snyder Cut.

Hard to move beyond Snyder's shiat vision and understanding of the characters to reinvent the universe if he keeps hanging around anyway pulling Lucas level fiddling with the flick.

Oh, dude... we essentially just had two years off from superhero movies. WandaVision and this are just the tip of the iceberg as it starts to ramp back up again. Black Widow, The Suicide Squad, Eternals, Venom 2, and Spider-Man: No Way Home are all due out in the next nine months.

Marvel has not made a bad movie.  Some haven't been as good, but its overall track record is just below Pixar and Studio in terms of hit rate.

I agree that DC needs to die but Marvel is killing it.

Depends on the standard for "bad."  Iron Man 2 was not good, for example.  It wasn't "Green Lantern" awful, but I would definitely call it a bad movie.

The MCU no longer has a few major actors.  Downey Jr., Evans, Boseman.

It's a matter of time before Chris Pratt does something incredibly stupid because it's clear he's a Trumper along with his nutcase brother so that will kill GotG.

And wasn't Joss Whedon a large part of the MCU?

The MCU's run isn't going to last forever, I got out with End Game.  It will be a high point and I can remember that and not have the series ruined for me like what happened with Star Wars.

My opinion.

Actually I swear I read some report on another fan site that claimed execs hated the Whedon version, and now this.  Not saying both can't be true (since neither version looks great).


It's pretty clear they commissioned the Whedon version because they hated Snyder's and just wanted to salvage what they could from what they saw as a bloated mess. It probably wasn't a case of liking or disliking Whedon's version, so much as hoping it would make more money at the box office than a 3+ hour mess. In other words, they likely hired Whedon knowing his (or any) version of the film would be a mess but hoping he could get the runtime down to 2 hrs and add some jokes to lighten it up.

I wonder how much of the decision to green light the Snyder cut was (beyond taking advantage of the buzz to make more money) an attempt by the producers to be able to say "See. This is why we brought in someone else to retool the movie."

/ I am actually interested in seeing this version. I find the whole production kind of fascinating.

Who gives a flying fark what this fake news clickbait site full of made-up bullshiat is reporting?

I have little doubt this movie is going to be a train wreck, make no mistake, but I have even less doubt that someone at WGTC either just made this shiat and their "sources" up, or their "source" is some fringe Youtuber with an average of 17 views per video, most of them about how Brie Larson hates men or something.

Fark the hell off with these farking WGTC links. They are utter bullshiat and actual fake news, always have been, always will be. Everyone with half a brain knows it, so at this point we have to wonder who's getting affiliate commission for linking to them.

Because we don't like seeing NOT-Justice League taking up airspace and funding for a proper Justice League movie we'd prefer to see.  There are few things more irritating and infuriating than *almost* getting what one wants but having to accept something critically-flawed in its place.

Ha! I didn't mean to make it sound like a defense of Whedon, but I can see how it comes across that way. I was thinking more about the producers' and other WB execs' mindsets in a) commissioning someone to retool the film, and b) rehiring Snyder to create his own cut.

Agreed. There are a few moments in Justice League where we start to see what he could have done with the character if they'd made him less grimdark, and they are some of the highlights of the film. However, they also make the film tonally dissonant.

Joss Whedon has been gone for some time, He pretty much oversaw all of Phase 2 but left shortly afterwards .Seems like it's been Feige all alone in the driver's seat since then.

As for major actors, the MCU tends to MAKE them rather than cast them. I'm probably the biggest RDJ fan around--have been since the 80s, and I'll be the first to admit that casting him as Iron Man was a HUGE risk.  He'd been so radioactive for so long, Mel Gibson had to pony up the insurance money to guarantee Downey would finish a film.  Evans was a known actor but not the headliner he is now.  Boseman had done some (very good) biopics but Black Panther made him a household name.  I'd never heard of Pratt before GotG because I'd never watched Parks & Rec (I've since corrected that criminal mistake).  And had anyone heard of Chris Hemsworth or Tom Hiddleston before Thor?  The one time they hired a big star,they had to replace him for all subsequent movies (Ed Norton).  The only MCU original with a well-established career was ScarJo and she was often sidelined (even got killed off before getting her own movie).

Big names, or the lack thereof, isn't an issue for them .   For instance, WandaVision is REALLY good and already making an A-list star out of Kathryn Hahn. That show is also setting up Phase 4 and the MCU has a full slate of movies in the pipeline.  As long as they continue to tell good stories,they'll be around for a long time.

I feel like Age of Ultron gets a lot more respect these days now that we've seen how much it set up for the future of the MCU. In particular, WandaVision has tied into it heavily.

I think "Ultron" gets more hate than it really deserves. It hadn't premiered before they announced that the next Avengers flick was a two-part take on Infinity War.

Real tough to live up to that.

I feel like Age of Ultron gets a lot more respect these days now that we've seen how much it set up for the future of the MCU. In particular, WandaVision has tied into it heavily.


Liked it at the time, what was folks beef with it?

MattytheMouse: HawgWild: Doesn't matter. The Snyder fanbois will slurp it up lovingly ...

I legit don't understand Snyder fans.

When I was younger, I always had comic book fans pinned as being a bit more appreciative of the medium; like being able to understand the themes and characters. Now, I just see a lot of comic book fans as "hUrR ViOlEnCe cOoL," thanks to Snyder.


To be fair, that wasn't his fault, that was the comics of the 90's

Lord Bear: A directors cut rarely moves a rating much for me.  It might bring a good movie from an '8' to an '8.5'.  With Justice League being a '4' in my books, why should I care?


There are exceptions, such as Kingdom of Heaven, Once Upon a Time in America, and Brazil.
