Zack's movie's wouldn't have been good regardless if they meddled or not. The narrative and creative ideas he choose for the start of the DCEU was idiotic. 

In your opinion. But what made them so idiotic?

Clearly there is a good amount of people that liked Snyder's vision. The support for a Snyder cut of JL is proof of that. 


A Snyder cut of that travesty wouldn't really be much better than what made it to screen, I think the hopes that it would be better is more a grass is greener type thing, as in, it couldn't possibly be worse than what made it to the Cinema could it? like... just by complete law of averages it would have to be better.

Regarding the current state of the DCU there is a really good video on youtube I seen regarding it, it's just on Justice League but really while it's a long video he goes into each area that it fails at.

here is a time stamp to a particular bit of interest if you don't fancy a long video to see the main points he is making in the video.

it's a cool breakdown though.

Any attempt to make decent SUPERMAN movie since 1978 has been fucked. The Superman curse lives on.



WB/DC are managed like trash, cant say im surprised

Since my first post, I've read several contradicting reports and his agent seemed to say that he hasn't quit or been fired from the role. I won't trust anything until WB or Henry himself announces something.

I've seen 2 different fan cuts of the movie that were actually way more enjoyable than the garbage Whedon and WB turned it into, mainly for 2 reasons: No Danny Elfman music and cut out shitty dialogue.

Lets see... to cut out all the shitty dialogue from Justice League

Naw look, if you found parts of those DCU films you enjoyed then that's cool, I know a few people who find the comedy elements of the Marvel universe to be rather grating when they want their comics to be dark and gritty but at the same time there are some movie flaws with Justice League which can't go unmentioned, from the scene being written, acted out and edited into the movie there are 2 scenes which when I was watching them I actually facepalmed and felt those responsible didn't understand the IP they had made a film about.

Aquaman in the fishing town in front of the pier full of fishermen stating that Bruce Wayne dresses up as a bat in Gotham and fights crime and when Superman is resurrected you get Lois running towards him shouting Clark while there is at the very least a bunch of cops about 5 feet from her, it was the same in Batman V Superman you had Lex seemingly knowing the super hero identity of both title characters with zero explanation, are they living in a world where the secret identity of the superheroes isn't important? It's just that another large element to the films was how Batman wanted to instill fear in the criminals of his crime fighting persona, I doubt criminals would have been quite as afraid if they were fully aware that inside the suit was just a rich kid turned CEO.

The DC universe needa a reboot. The movies are terrible. Wonder Woman was their only notable movie.

Let the Injustice people take over the scripts.

The DCU movies were bad and Henry Cavill was bad in them, unsurpring he's out

Michael B. Jordan as SuperMan would be sweet tho

"Michael B. Jordan as SuperMan would be sweet tho"

why? because he's black?

He would make a good Bizarro Superman.

I want Michael B Jordan in every movie trying to incite race wars. That will get him a Nike deal.

Unrelated, but I hope that Cyborg movie slated for 2020 comes to fruition, that's the only movie I care about from this messy and rushed cinematic universe at this point.



I just have no interest in seeing any DC movies right now, i can't believe how mismanaged they are
