The Snyder Cut was greenlit by executives at WB's corporate overlord AT&T, reportedly against the wishes of the movie studio. Ultimately, if ZSJL is successful in driving up subscriber numbers for HBO Max there will be every incentive for AT&T to continue with the 'Snyderverse' on their streaming service. Warner Bros are largely irrelevant.
To be fair I don’t ever recall as a child running around asking for a more serious darker vengeful Batman either. Never saw a problem with the very silly campy Batman that I absolutely loved because I Was A Child.Yes. I remember distinctly as a child, running around in a red cape and sudenly stopping and saying to my mum "mum, instead of all this christopher reeve rubbish, do you think I could have a dour, unhappy, chronically depressed superman that is more like batman in many ways, and maybe, just maybe also have all of the colours washed out of the film so that every scene looks like $h1t brown, and even if we're lucky have a score in which the primary instrument will be a foghorn to go along with the boisterous sound mixing that, upon further reflection as i'm watching it at home to find the bits in there that i liked, I can hold onto the remote in desperate terror so that I can avoid all the explosions and try to make out the dialogue which will probably be drowned out by percussion?
Also...Mum? Do you think this could come off the back of a film that should have clearly been a two part release that the studio cynically planned to milk as much money out of the franchise as possible, only to then decide that they wanted to make one movie after all, forcing the poor bastard that's directing the damned thing to kill superman in a rushed, incoherent way that made very little sense to anyone that's lovingly curated these comics SINCE THEIR BIRTH, thereby wrecking the entire franchise because they'll probably stop buying stuff like comics and sideshow collectibles as a result?
And also mum...Do you think THAT movie could possibly come off the back of a superman movie where outright snaps a neck, levels a town AND. a city causing a death toll that hits the thousands, just to make a classic superhero that's been beloved...BELOVED I tell you for 80 years "contemporary" to a bunch of dullards who get off on batman, think joker is an antihero and PROBABLY should have just stuck with fapping over a guy. I don't know. let's call him chris and his over exaggerated ability?
Mum. Mum? Are you listening, because I'd love that. Also I think I just snapped someone's neck with my red cape to get the ball rolling."
Yes. I remember saying that quite clearly.
If you need me, I think i'll be drowning myself in a bottle of JD and watching Captain America. At least Joe Johnston seems to understand heroism.
Yeah I posted a screenshot of Snyder saying that earlier onI'm sure I saw one of Snyder's Vero posts where he said it would be 1:66:1 so there will be small black bars at the side? Unless he's changed his mind since then and it's 4:3.
