Snyder makes movies for grownups? That’s a new one! It’ll be fascinating to see the differences between the two though given the huge fuss about this whole thing and how Whedon ruined what was obviously going to be a total masterpiece.
Joss Whedon should have simply made the film four hours long, the dumbarse.

The whole saga reminds of the Simpson's episode with the "flying pig"

The oddest thing about Justice League is everyone knows it's awful, because if it wasn't there wouldn't be this desire from people for the extended cut. Under all the hype for this new edition is the hope that somehow Snyder has made a good movie.

Think the whole Snyder cut thing stems from hardcore DC fans who were desperate for their live action films to compete with marvel.

Obviously Justice League stunk up the place to the point where for most of them it was indefensible, and hid behind "it wasn't Snyder's vision" as to why it was so shit.

The reshoots and whatnot being done by whedon of all people gave the whole "Snyder cut" legs.

Fact is, there's no guarantee that his cut is worth the hype and it's hope more than anything.

Especially as he gave us BvS. And Man of Steel which the second half was not great imo (but probably the best of them all and overall entertaining)

Man of steel is the only superman film I find watchable. Agree its tails off a bit in the 2nd half though.

BvS is trash.

It's just going to be four hours of the same Snyder exposition, isn't it? I'm just not feeling hyped for this film. Not unless it has lots of scenes like the one in BvS where Batman beats the shit out of a room full of hired goons.

You're all going to hate it... I'm going to find it entertaining. That's my prediction.

There is a distinct yellow/brownish filter they have been using since MoS. It is so annoying that I edited the colors of a downloaded version before watching it with friends.
Pretty much every Snyder film has that tint from 300, sucker punch, MOS, Watchmen and probably others. It’s like how Michael Bay also has that one tint he seems to use in everything. It’s like their signature tints.

As for the film it can really only go up from the train wreck which was the Whedon edit. One of the worst films I’ve seen. Remember when it came out people that had scene the test footage of the Snyder version saying even that without fully digigitalized villains was better than what was released.

Look forward to actually seeing some back story on characters and bigger involvement and explanations for things would be nice.

I keep hearing its his version but then he's doing reshoots and more shoots and adding stuff

Basically snyder can see what didn't work and change it to work
It's kinda a free hit for him no?

Even with him releasing the design of stuff he can tweak it based on reaction

This really shouldn't fail with all this advantage he has

I never really watched the original so I will be waiting for his cut then. I watched BvS, Wonder Woman and Shazam from DCEU and liked them, and I found BvS to be over hated actually. Definitely flawed and kinda rushed, but was a very fun watch for me. Will watch Birds of Prey and Aquaman soon as well.

Exactly.

I can't recall another director given anywhere near as much an opportunity to not make something thats shit.
