Not sure why fan boys were pushing for this after seeing what he did with Batman V Superman. And i love Man Of Steel but it seems like that movie succeeded because Christopher Nolan was actually involved with the story.

Only thing better than comic book / "canonical" sci-fi movies is complaining about them. People are gonna devour this and live with it later.

Same exact movie - just 2 hours of added slo-mo scenes.

Look - cyborg AND the flash both were awful in this film.

Watch Doom Patrol instead.

plus they're spending $20-30 million, and Whedon absolutely made changes to the film Snyder was going to make.

Guess WB didn't get that memo. They're going to sink tens of millions into a project that no one was really asking for.

But hey, free publicity to remind people that HBO Max is indeed launching in two weeks. Viral marketing, bay-bee!

he was rightfully fired. companies have to protect themselves in case those comments had any weight to them. In the long run, they didn't, and he was brought back.

The guy who peddled "Pizzagate" as hard as he possibily could.

Gunn's comments had come out multiple times before this, and he'd apologized for them multiple times. Cernovich and his alt-right trolls created a bunch of fake Twitter outrage because they were pissed that Gunn was critical of Drumf. Cernovich had done similar efforts before and tried similar things after (unsuccessfully with Patton Oswalt and Sarah Silverman). Disney was just dumb enough to fall for that bait.

and also before when they'd come up.


it's not an actual question about why the tweets would be a problem for a company like disney, but the biggest problem with their reaction is that there was never any real push for him to be fired, and the only thing that fueled it was their kneejerk reaction

it was just the right wing machine.

Like, unless this tells a different story or brings in Darkseid (which I have no clue how they do that) this won't be much more than a color corrected version with some of the added shots put back in. The movie will be slightly different, but not better.

Still, fans can say 'I TOLD YOU SO!!!', so I guess that's something.

some directors need an extended run time to space out and tell a gripping story, but i'm not sure he's one of them. i would love to watch this out of somewhat morbid curiosity, with the theatrical cut being arbitrarily capped at 2 hours without him, and because i mostly like his stuff, but IMO his best movie is under 2 hours (300). i guess at this point i would like to know what he's doing after this. i think overall comic book movie (sorry, guys) fans have spoken, and his vision of them isn't what the people want now. what else does he have up his sleeve?

18. "There never really was an original "Snyder cut""
In response to Reply # 16


  

          

Whenever you dug even sort of deep into stories about it, it came out that Snyder had an original idea for the movie in mind (actually, it was to be two movies), but didn't get to film everything. Part of it was because Warner Bros./DC didn't seem to love his ideas and some of what he did shoot, and part of it was because he had to leave the project due to a family crisis.

After Snyder walked away, Warners Bros. was left with an incomplete movie. They hired Whedon, who did a lot of re-writes and re-shoots. But there Snyder never got a chance to shoot his entire "vision." This is him somehow talking Warner Bros. into giving him the money to do it.

Deathstroke vs Batman as an ending scene. Also, supposedly the Atom is in the new cut. bottom line is, I have no doubt it will improve greatly on the current film. Snyder said what we saw was only 25% of what he made. Whether it's Howard the Duck or the French Connection, time will tell.
