I don’t think I’ve seen those before. I must’ve turned it off! :)
In what way? He seems (curiously) interested in Lois’ well-being, but I didn’t think he was horrible..? Because he didn’t join in with the fights against Zod and Steppenwolf? Unless you mean he literally looks ugly?
Another thing I didn’t quite get: they had such a tight plan for reviving Superman, but they didn’t make a plan for picking up the Motherbox afterwards? The thing which was about to destroy the world? I get that they were distracted by Superman having to be ‘restrained’ (which was a dumb idea) but they forgot about the thing that could destroy the world. Just a bit stupid.
I don't think they planned for the Mother Box to get blown out of the ship. Yes, someone (say, the Flash) should have gone looking for the thing, but when your sun soaking plot device has just flown the coop, apparently he becomes a priority. At the very least, it landed next to someone who knew what to do about it.
Yeah, considering how cautious they were about using it and how they knew they'd attract attention, you'd think one (of the five!) could've had a look around for it :D Batman just disappears for ages anyway!
You don't need a plan with Superman on your side. ;-)
Perhaps I'm not really seeing this "film" as a "film" in the purest narrative sense; perhaps I am rather seeing it as a montage of fan-service moments, despite the fact that I also want to compliment this film for being far more cohesive and narratively "fleshed-out" than the theatrical cut.
Four hours of this is still perfectly enjoyable in my book. And yes, I have seen the film three times now, and still no complaints. I guess I'm just a kid in a candy store, looking for a sugar rush. ;-)
I heard a rumour Justice League: Justice is Gray has 20 minutes additional scenes.
Any excitement about Superman wearing a black version of his costume will be deleted won’t it? There’ll be no way of telling! :)
They’d have to take out that scene where he ignores one version of his costume to pick an identical one! :D
It depends on the film; the B/W versions of “ The Mist” and Logan” are outstanding .
Thanks for allowing me to enjoy it. ;)
My experience isn't the same as yours. But you're hardly alone in thinking the b/w versions are good so it's not for me to say that everyone is wrong, just that it's something that doesn't work for me. Why that invites a snarky reply I don't know.
Snyder is renowned for his visuals, so I would have enjoyed an even more indulgent grade similar to the above idea with his version of JL. One thing I will say about a B&W grade is that the VFX will likely be less flawed or at least less noticeable, as it's often the grading on those elements (as much as detail) that make them stick out as much as they do.
Lighten up Francis , it was just a good natured poke.
I've been meaning to get into the DCEU films for a while now - up till now I've only seen Suicide Squad (the theatrical cut) when it came out in cinemas because I was interested in the concept. As films, I'm most interested in seeing the Wonder Woman films, Aquaman and Shazam but I do want to see all of the films in order (just like how I've done so for the MCU).
In terms of Justice League, should I watch the theatrical cut in between Wonder Woman and Aquaman and watch the Snyder Cut later as an extra / alternative viewing of the film (and compare the two), or should I just watch the Snyder Cut in place of the theatrical cut?
Sigh... have you tried adding fiber to your diet?
Now that is snark and I’m moving on.
I'd watch Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman 1984, Man Of Steel, Batman v Superman, the Snyder Cut, and then Aquaman in that order if you wanted to be timeline strict about it.
As for the Whedon vs Snyder cut - the latter is more consistent in characterisation with the films around it and is generally just a better film overall, so it's for those reasons alone I'd go with that over the Whedon film.
Snyder had confirmed that his cut isn’t necessarily canon, which is why his fans have been calling for #RestoreTheSnyderVerse because now it’s not enough that we got Snyder’s version of JL, we need him back in charge of DCEU.
Given his treatment of Superman, NO THANKS. I’m glad he left. I’ve liked the movies much more after he left.
It seems that DC is going from Zack Snyder and The Stone Quarry to JJ Abrams and Bad Robot.
I'd say the Snyder cut is the superior: as others have mentioned there are one or two scenes in the Whedon one which are nice to have, but the Snyder one makes more sense- if you're up for four hours of it I wouldn't bother with the theatrical one.
That's a confusingly written article :)
"As I have previously reported, the Snyderverse being restored theatrically is not impossible.
However, there is a chance if Zack Snyder’s Justice League knocked it out of the park."
Does he mean 'however'?
From watching these films and some of the other ones over the last couple of weeks, it has weirdly left me with a hunger (and not a desire to never see again as you might expect!) for a really good Superman film. After all these years it's only really happened once (or twice, arguably): it must be possible to make a good Superman film? I'd be keen to see it.
I was watching quite a good documentary on YouTube about the history of the Superman films through the 80s and 90s and I did think that just maybe the Kevin Smith version of Superman Lives might have actually been alright. Seemed to be slightly light on an emotional story for the main characters, but with a bit of work it might have been fun. I'd always thought the various versions of that film were supposed to be terrible, and Nic Cage seemed all wrong, but now I think it might have been okay. Brendan Fraser was another suggestion which I think probably could have been good too.
