Will Warner Bros. ever release the Zack Snyder version of “Justice League” (or better known as the “Snyder Cut”)??? I hope they do and they should!!!

So now that director Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck has officially joined the “Snyder Cut” movement, will Warner Bros. soon release the Snyder version of the latest “Justice League”???

I haven’t been following this story much so I thought I would finally look into it and post my thoughts. I believe what led to this movement is that Zack Snyder filmed a much longer version of the film “Justice League”… I’ve read that Snyder’s version was much more than 3 hrs. long. About three and a half hour long film, I think. It turned out that Warner Bros. hated the Snyder version so much that they didn’t want to release it at all. That’s how director Joss Whedon came in to take over for re-shoots and re-writes so therefor, the Joss Whedon version of “Justice League” brought the film down to a two hour film.

Once Joss Whedon’s version of “Justice League” came out in theaters, it received mostly negative criticism by fans. This sparked interest of DC/Warner fans that they think Warner Bros. should release the Snyder cut ’cause they might think the Snyder version would be a lot better. The “Snyder Cut” movement has been going on through social media for a long time now. Jason Momoa already expressed interest in the “Snyder Cut”. Now Zack Snyder himself and Ben Affleck joined the movement.

Even though Snyder directed the original version all by himself, it’s not all up to him to release it publicly since it’s Warner Bros.’s film so it’s their prerogative whether or not they want to release it. Even Kevin Smith wants the Snyder Cut released.

Even though I have no problem with Joss Whedon’s theatrical release of “Justice League” as I think it’s pretty good, I really hope Warner Bros. releases the Snyder version. I think we deserve to see Snyder’s take on the “Justice League” film like it was originally intended, ya know? Warner Bros. may hate the Snyder version but that doesn’t mean the rest of us will hate it. They should make a DVD/BluRay exclusive release of Snyder’s version, I don’t see why not?

I know Snyder’s: “Man of Steel” and “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice” got mixed reviews but I fuckin’ LOVED both of those films. I thought both were really good and still stand by it. I think the Snyder version of “Justice League” would be really good too. The reason I loved the Dawn of Justice film so much is that I thought they told the Death of Superman and Doomsday story so well which people don’t get. That story finally deserved to get told on the big screen and “Dawn of Justice” did just that. Plus “Dawn of Justice” was a badass action film too.

With that being said, I hope Warner Bros. does the smart thing and lets all see it ’cause we deserve to see it. We just gotta keep pressuring them.

Full “Justice League” trailer is finally out and it looks freakin’ awesome! Hell yeah!!!

While San Diego Comic Con is underway this weekend, WB’s decided to drop the “Justice League” trailer today. So here it is, the full trailer for “Justice League”.

I’m pretty impressed with it really. I really liked “Man of Steel”, “Wonder Woman” and “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”. I thought all three were great flicks! All three of those films were leading up to the “Justice League” film. While all the advertisements omitted Superman, I believe they finally included him in this trailer above. The trailer teases Superman’s return. I believe that’s who Alfred was talking to when he was talking to a character “off-screen”… that was Clark Kent/Superman who Alfred was talking to; that was Henry Cavill’s voice, indeed.

So when are we actually going to see Superman in action in the film? Probably not until the very end of the movie I would say. Throughout the movie, they would keep teasing that Superman is alive and then we’ll see him at the end. Superman will join the Justice League group at the end of the movie. It’s not really a “spoiler” ’cause everybody probably knows that’s what’s going to happen anyways.

Anyhow, I’m pretty stoked for the movie. This is one movie that I’m most anticipated for this year other than “Star Wars: Episode 8”, “Stephen King’s The Dark Tower”, “IT” and “Jigsaw” (Saw 8).

Can’t wait for “Justice League”. Definitely going to see this one.

“Justice League” trailer is finally here but where is Superman??? My guesses are here… ***Possible spoilers***

 

***Possible Spoilers below***

The reason WB hasn’t been advertising Superman in the new “Justice League” movie even though Henry Cavill is still casted as Superman in the film is ’cause Superman is dead. At least he’s faking it.

Remember in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”, Superman was killed by Doomsday at the end of it. At the end of the film, we see dirt rising off the casket giving us a hint that Superman is actually alive still.

At the end of “Dawn of Justice”, Bruce Wayne says to Wonder Woman, “We have to stand together”. Meaning they are about to form the new Justice League ’cause Bruce Wayne/Batman can’t save the world by himself without Superman, ya know? That’s why he’s forming Justice League.

My prediction in “Justice League” is that we won’t see Superman for most of the entire movie. We won’t see Superman ’til the very end of the film. When the Justice League group are in trouble toward the end of the film, that’s when Superman will finally appear and save the day.

With that being said, though, “Justice League” looks fuckin’ badass and I’m gonna go see it for sure. Can’t wait!

Ben Affleck says he’s in no hurry to make solo Batman film so expect a lot of push backs on release date???

Ya know, I totally trust Ben Affleck when he’s gonna make his own Batman solo film which will be interesting to see his take on the character. Ben says he’s in no hurry to make the new Batman film despite the release date being slated for June 14, 2019 so could there be a lot push backs due to Ben being late with the script?

Once again, I’m not a big fan of Ben’s liberal politics but he does make good movies, though. I also think he’s a good director ’cause I really liked “The Town” and “Argo” in which he starred & directed both of those films.

http://batman-news.com/2016/12/12/ben-affleck-batman-movie-not-in-a-hurry/

Because of that movie “The Town” which is a favorite film of mine that he did, I know Ben is capable of making kick-ass action movies so I know Ben will make his Batman film a great action film as well. Hopefully Ben’s solo Batman movie won’t be another “origin” story. Ben’s version of Batman’s origin was already told in “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”, that was a new introduction of Batman so I don’t think it’ll be an origin story. It’s probably gonna be a standalone movie.

It’ll be interesting to see who Ben will pick as the leading villain and hopefully it won’t be the Joker again. How about someone new and different like The Riddler, Penguin, Killer Croc, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Hugo Strange, Hush, Victor Zsasz, etc.???

Will Ben use a sidekick for his new Batman film like maybe Robin, Batgirl, Catwoman (remember, Catwoman wasn’t always bad), Nightwing, etc.??? I think Batgirl would be kind of cool. It’ll be cool if Batgirl would finally get her time for the big screen.

Ever since “Suicide Squad” and “Batman: Arkham Knight” game, Harley Quinn has become very popular…

A post shared by Kev Brock (@kevbrockmusic) on

These days everywhere you go at the mall or your local comic book store, you’re gonna see Harley Quinn everywhere. There are Harley Quinn statues (or life size replicas, whatever you want to call them), t-shirts, posters, action figures, etc. They’re selling those all over the place. I take it that Harley Quinn has all of a sudden become very popular. There are men that like the character but the character is mostly popular with women. Have you noticed that more and more women have been liking the Harley Quinn character? She was the Joker’s girlfriend from the comics. This character is getting so popular for whatever reason.

So for this reason alone, I think she’s definitely gonna get her own spinoff series for film and possibly a TV show even. The pic above I took myself while at the mall doing my Christmas shopping. It’s nice to see Harley Quinn finally get some recognition ’cause she is an interesting character. Why is it that a lot of women love her so much? Is it because Harley relates to women? Maybe women like her ’cause they admire the fact that Harley is not afraid to look like how she wants and women out there feel the same. You know how Harley is kind of crazy? Well a lot of women out there are crazy too so this character can relate. Harley relates to women in a lot of ways.

Wonder Woman and Catwoman should watch out ’cause I think very soon, Harley Quinn is gonna be bigger than them. Harley could take their spotlight pretty quick. I haven’t seen “Suicide Squad” but plan on getting around to it.

It is interesting how this Harley character is getting popular very fast. She is an interesting character. I like her a lot myself.

Just finished “Gotham – Season 1” last night on Netflix… such an awesome show!!!

I’m a really huge Batman fan. Just love the characters and the stories. Even though I’m not much of a comic book reader, I just watch all the Batman movies… play the Batman video games and read a few graphic novels. I also love the original Batman TV series with Adam West and Burt Ward. I should read more Batman comics, though and I want to. It’s just that comics are hard to collect these days. I just read the graphic novels when I can. I love Batman ’cause I just love how he’s one of the very few superheroes with no superpowers.

I finished the new Batman TV show on FOX called, “Gotham” which focus’s on the earlier days of Batman… the history of it. It’s kind of like a prequel. It shows the build up of all the characters from the comics. It will show the life of Bruce Wayne before he became the Batman. The show also shows the buildup of all the villains like the Riddler, Penguin, the Joker, Poison Ivy, Harvey Dent/Two Face, Scarecrow, Catwoman, etc. All the Batman characters from the comics are a part of this show except for Fish Mooney (who is played by Jada Pinkett Smith) which is an exclusive character for the show. This show is about the lives of the villains before they became what they became so those characters are not in full costume yet. The Batman is not a part of this show yet ’cause Bruce Wayne is just a kid right now.

This show is pretty similar to “Smallville”, the show about the life of Superman but “Gotham” is about the life of Batman.

Ya know, I hate Jada Pinkett Smith like most people. I can’t stand the Smith family but I’m not afraid to admit that Jada’s character as Fish Mooney is entertaining as hell to watch. Jada as Fish Mooney is really enjoyable to watch… I won’t deny it. Plus, Jada is pretty hot and sexy as that character. That’s some damn good acting, Jada, great job and I really mean that.

I also love the actors who plays Edward Nygma (who later becomes the Riddler) and Oswald Cobblepot (who later becomes the Penguin)… the actors who plays those two characters are really good actors as well. If Ben Affleck ever decides to have the Riddler or the Penguin for his solo Batman film he should get the actors from the “Gotham” TV show that played those two characters. Would be cool.

My only complaint about this show is that I’m not that crazy about the choice of the young Jim Gordon… I don’t think Ben McKenzie is that great of an actor but everyone else in this show are great though.

When will we ever see all the villains in their full costumes? I would predict in the final season whenever that will be, that will be the season when the Batman will finally appear. So when the young Bruce Wayne is all grown up, they will have to find an older actor to play the new Batman for the show.

“Gotham” is surprisingly a great show. I’m loving it so far. I finished Season 1 last night and will start season 2 next week. Season 3 is currently being played on FOX cable TV but I’ll wait for Season 3 to get on Netflix. So glad this show is on Netflix. If you’re a Batman fan too, it’s worth checking out.

From the mouth of Ben Affleck himself, he says the title of his solo Batman film will be…

Ben Affleck the man himself revealed that the title to his solo Batman film that he will direct and co-write himself is gonna be simply titled, “The Batman” but he could change it, though.

Even though I’m not a huge fan of Ben’s die-hard liberal politics, I loved him as Batman ’cause I thought “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” was a great movie. I’m sure Ben’s solo Batman film is gonna be great too.

I wonder who Ben is gonna have as villains in his Batman film? Will he have the Joker again? I think he should also bring in the Penguin, Riddler, etc. I think it would be even cooler if the Riddler could be the main villain in this one. There’s a lot of talk that Deadshot could be the villain like Ben teased before but that could be for “Justice League” though.

It be cool if he has some other villains like Hush, Killer Croc, Mad Hatter and also, Hugo Strange would be cool too.

Wonder what Ben’s version of “The Batman” would be like? Is it gonna be a whole new origin story? Probably not ’cause they already explained Batman’s origin in “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice”.

Ben may as well have the Joker again. Even though the Joker wasn’t in the “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice” film at all, the Joker was referenced a few times in that movie. So ya never know, the Joker could be back. If they do get Joker back, they should try and get Mark Hamill to play him ’cause that would be freakin’ cool. Hamill never played a live action Joker yet but I think he could pull it off well.

I’m the biggest Batman fan there is and I look forward to anything Batman. I haven’t seen “Suicide Squad” yet but looking forward to it when it comes out for rental.
