(Some Guy)   If you thought that after being given the chance to "re-cut" a movie that he was (allegedly) fired from into a four-hour viewing marathon that Zack Snyder would have nothing but kind words for Warner Bros., you'd thought wrong   (looper.com) divider line

*Article about the director's work, mentioning how the fans lauded the latest submission*

*Article explaining the end of the latest submission because it was a shiatty movie*

He's talking about himself in third person.

That's never a good sign.

Who alleges he was fired? His 20-year-old daughter killed herself while he was shooting JL.

Snyder figured out the location of the Anti-Fun Equation.

It's in all of his movies

Snyder got what 99.999999999% of people don't get: Tens of millions of dollars to make a fan film. His cut would never touch theaters (way too long), so I do wonder what his theatrical cut would've been. But I don't care enough to say he deserves to make more grimdark super slo-mo movies.

ed fans to lobby for Warner Bros. to reverse course and #RestoreTheSnyderverse with more Snyder-directed DC movies. Snyder has said he would love to do more, but ultimately it's up to the studio, and they don't seem interested.


That's because no serious business should allow smelly, overweight, manchildren dictate how they run their affairs.

Randians can't make superhero movies.  They can't really do superheroes period.  It's a mindset and an attitude completely opposite the objectivist "fark you I got mine"

Steve Ditko notwithstanding.  But he had Lee and Kirby riding herd, AND he knew where he stood relative to the guys that paid him.  Look what happened when Ditko was able to make "Mr. A":  All the warmth and charisma of a municipal parking garage, combined with all the narrative energy of a Chick Tract.

I still like Snyder, and I enjoyed Man of Steel quite a bit. That said you are correct that Snyder never truly understood what it was that made these characters tick. It's why he was the wrong person to build the shared universe. He never got why the heroes are iconic and missed the point of Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns.

I remember reading interviews where he talked about fans not liking it when you "deconstruct" heroes. And it came across as someone who has no idea what deconstruction actually is. Because BvS is not deconstruction. (For an actual example, see The Boys.)

So while he seems decent enough and is a gifted visual director, he's not going to have the best stories or characters if he keeps missing the point.

I like the DC movies.   They should be grim, dark, depressing movies because that is the world they live in.

Snyder farked up so bad that they had to keep pushing The Flash movie back and back until it eventually just became Flashpoint, complete with Michael Keaton. He made Stupid-Flash's first movie the franchise rebooting story. His failure in comparison to Marvel's success is just spectacular and dazzling.

Ironically enough, the Watchmen miniseries was both textbook deconstruction AND a critical success. And a farking amazing piece of storytelling, to boot.

I feel like this should be a hard axiom of comic book media: if you want a good traditional comic book film/series, give it to a guy that makes comic book movies and tell him to cut it with the funny business. If you want a good deconstructed comic book film/series, give it to a guy that doesn't make comic book movies. Anything else, and you get shiat like Snyder's DC-verse or Whedon's Avengers.

Going the Marvel route where everything has to be punctuated by a joke isn't the right way either. I liked Guardians of the Galaxy but I hate what happened to the tone of the MCU after that movie.

Yes it is and yes it should.  The notion of Gods walking among us should scare the living shiat out of you.   DC Animation rightly gets a lot of credit for great story-telling.   One of the best ones they've ever done is this:

That is precisely why I like the DC films.   The world they live in would be a scary farkin' place where the sky opens up and monsters come through it.   Where entire cities get laid to waste because of their disagreements, and us peons get crushed under their heels as a result.  Where the only thing keeping *us* safe is that the aliens landed outside of Smallville  instead of Chelyabinsk.

The first time I saw any MCU property take a serious look at that was in Jessica Jones, of all places.  The DC movies started there.

the original Watchmen comic/graphic novel was a deconstruction of what makes a "superhero".  as in you have to have something seriously wrong with you to want to be that.  Even the characters who were on the "sane" side were damaged to one degree or another, either by family or the society around them.

my own 2c:
I liked ZS JL - but I dont mind slow.  wasnt great - no interest in a 2nd viewing but it was worth 1 watch (Affleck is a solid Batman/Bruce Wayne). Def wasn't as bad as Thor:DW

thought BvS was one of the dumbest attempts to rework parts of Dark Knight Returns - it was as if my middle school self wrote the story

No really.  For all the love that DC Animation gets, it is almost as if the people saying stupid shiat like "They should let the DC Animation guys do the live action stuff" have never watched DC Animation outside of Saturday morning cartoons.  Because DC Animation is dark as shiat.  They make the Snyderverse look like happy fun shwarma time.   All that weird dreamscape shiat at the end of Justice League that all the happy fun shwarma lovers whined about?  That was live action DC Animation.  Specifically, this one:  It *literally* has "DARK" right in the farkin' title.

What you don't understand is that nobody means that shiat.  'Let the Animation guys run it' means giving it to Paul Dini and Bruce Timm to re-do the DCAU from BTAS through JLU in live action.

Even the animated movies built off the Nu52 DCU suffer because of that shiat worldbuilding.

Unknown Subject: They should have him direct a Warhammer 40K movie instead, then he can make it as grimdark as he wants and then some.


No, because like all grimdark, the whole thing falls apart the minute you start taking it seriously. And it would be even worse in the WH40K universe, which is intentional camp that only the wooliest of neck beards take seriously.

If a WH40K movie ever hits production, the only human being that could do it justice as a director is Seth Rogan. There is no other human that can at the same time embrace the utter stupidity of that universe with love and care, but still make it very clear how utterly stupid the very basic premise is.

I still feel that this demand for a grimdark DC universe is similar to fans accusing Marvel of selling out SJWs as a response to companies trying to reach out and find new readers/audiences.
