I can't wait to be disappointed. But still it's awesome to see this actually happen.

ManaByte ManaByte still looking like an utter bellend?

Inject it.

Boo.hoo! Take your tiny bellend and cry to mommy. If your so triggered why not just log out and not comeback? Are you that weak willed you cannot control your own actions?





As for the movie, I thought it was decent enough, not sure if it was good enough for a extended cut but that’s another story.

Rooting for Snyder on this one. I enjoyed 300 and love his take on Watchmen.

You act like sanctimonious church goer asking for the porn store down the corner to close. Just don’t look at it and we all can be happy.

Good for the people who have been begging for this. I can't imagine it wont be awful though. I haven't cared for anything Synder has done. Who did he blow at WB?

Didn’t he have to basically abandon this because his son died?

In light of that, I’m all for Snyder getting to pick up and complete a passion project that obviously meant a lot to him.

In general, I’m not a tremendous fan of his work so far with DC, but it should be fun to see what he delivers.
It was his daughter... She committed suicide. Then the execs at WB had Whedon brought in to reshoot almost the whole movie. All new scenes and reworking already finished scenes with new dialogue and such.

Emmerich and crew wanted it to happen in November last year... And after Zack did a screening of what he had already shot (sans VFX and pick ups) and presentation of his vision of it for the streaming service, they said yes and here we are.

That is bizarre. I remember it as his son getting in a car crash. Am I the only one?

right now production on all movies is halted. CGI studios are sitting around empty. no shooting can take place. yet here is a movie with hours and hours of footage already shot, ready to put together. there really is no better time than now to do this. so he and his team put together a presentation and they went for it.

Snyder fans and Raimi fans are honestly much more powerful than any MCU fan could ever hope to be.
Because those fanbases drive the full revenue of the product, and the parent company recognizes it.

With Marvel, it is clear that the majority of revenue comes from casuals, so Disney doesn’t give a fuck about pissing off some comic book fans.

I love DC so of course I'm down to watch it and hope its good. I still expect a thoroughly mediocre film though. You can only do so much even with a redone post production.
Not when there's double the movie never seen before
Seriously so happy for Snyder and his fans.

Zack snyder has had to endure so much shit since MOS basically.

Woke film Twitter and places like era and people like that have spent literal years calling the man a racist, a sexist, alt right, nazi, islamophobe, homophobe, claiming he hates his mother, making fun of his daughters suicide etc. Trying to tear down his entire filmography and assassinate his character.


Relentlessly mocking him and his fans to obsessive levels. Telling them this would never happen.

Now they're all mad as fuck and claiming WB is "giving into terrorists/toxicity/harassment."

Seriously couldn't be happier for Snyder.
I had no idea his daughter committed suicide that's horrible. I can't believe people were making fun. That's painful as fuck man.

I'm still of the opinion that Snyder's DC movies are some of the worst of the comicbook movies ever made. He's the tryhard edgelord teen as a movie director who read those great comic deconstructions of the 80's (Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns) and thinks that's what superheroes should be like.

But, as an artist, he deserves to his vision seen by the world, no matter how terrible it is.

It's the reason he stepped away from the film during production.

The Snyder cut movement have raised over $150K for suicide prevention charities in her honor during this campaign to get his film released.

It at least will have a more consistent tone, better visuals, action and music score compared to Whedons trash Frankenstein version.

Man of Steel continues to be one of the very few comic book movies I actually liked very much, it's probably in my top 3 of this kind and I'm including stuff like V for Vendetta and Watchmen. I don't give a crap it didn't portray Superman accurately, I never cared about comic books anyway, I care that it had an interesting character, story and villains that actually convinced me of their motivations and that they were incredibly powerful, the direction was amazing imo so I hope his Justice League goes back to this.

BvS was complete and utter trash though, either it was studio interference or Snyder and the writers fucked up. Having said all this, I don't see how they're gonna save the movie, they need to completely rewrite the villain as a start, that shit was even more generic than Marvel villains.

I never saw any of the Zack Snyder DC movies despite being a HUGE DC fan and I have zero interest in this one. Looked like total dogshit before, and looks like total dogshit now.

I'm glad this is happening for Zack more than anything. The rumors were that his daughter's suicide was used as an excuse by the studio to get him off the project instead of straight up firing him, so I'm thankful he's getting some vindication.

I still can't see how he can really salvage this unless he changes the villain and his motivations, and pretty much the entire garbage third act.

thanks for your entirely uninformed opinion lol

apparently they reshot like 75% of the movie after hiring on Whedon and there are hours of footage Zack shot that they never used. it sounds like it will be a very different movie

What an odd choice of thread to suicide in. Weird. Did the dude have a blood fued with Mana or something?

Well, on a lighter note:

The reveal, for those that missed it

Deathstroke sends his regards

Actor Joe Manganiello, who played Deathstroke in the original Justice League’s stinger, has hinted that Zack Snyder had plans for a different post-credits scene, one that could theoretically be brought to life next year.

Manganiello took to Twitter post-Snyder Cut to tease, “The original end credit scene” followed by three emojis: a sword, a bat, and a skull.

I'm growing more and more excited to check out this cut. I wish I didn't know about it now and have to wait until 2021. It sucks when a studio hires someone, approves a script and a vision, and then does nothing but roadblock the creative minds with their executive demands.



Why is the Snyder cut making leftists mad?
Maybe they feel like it's anti-Whedon. And that guy pretty much sits on the throne of the SJW kingdom.
