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.

Zack Snyder backs out of directing “Justice League” film after suicide of his daughter…

“Justice League” director Zack Snyder is going through a bit of a tragedy himself. His 20 year old daughter committed suicide back in March. Why did he make this news public for the whole world to see now? Well, he wants to help bring awareness to suicide which seems to be a problem more and more these days.

Zack and his wife had to pull out of filming ’cause they’re going through some difficult times. Joss Whedon immediately stepped in to finish the rest of the film.

Sad. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Snyder family too. I don’t think you’ll see Snyder directing a movie for a long time. He’s probably gonna take a long hiatus from Hollywood.

Most of the “Justice League” movie is pretty much finished, the article says that Whedon needs to film additional scenes and do the post-production part of it. Post-production meaning editing, special effects, sounds, musical scores, etc.

I am looking forward to seeing “Justice League”, though. Can’t wait to see it. I’m sure it’ll be way better than “Man of Steel” and “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”.

“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!

James Wan to direct “Aquaman” movie for DC/Warner Bros…

James Wan is mostly famous as a horror film director but look like he’s finally getting tired of horror films and wants to do different genres. He has directed a few action movies in his career with action films such as “Death Sentence” starring Kevin Bacon and he just directed “Fast & Furious 7”. Now he’s set to direct another action film which is gonna be the “Aquaman” which will star Jason Momoa in the leading role.

You can expect the “Aquaman” live-action movie to be full of water all over so there’s gonna be a lot of underwater scenes and above water scenes. That’s because I believe that Aquaman can only survive in water, I think he can survive outside of water but not for long. I don’t know much about Aquaman but I’m just doing a little googling on the character. He does have super strength and he can control all sea life meaning that he can control all sea animals like fish, sharks, whales, etc.

So I think this is gonna be an interesting movie and looking forward to seeing how James is gonna pull it off. Expect the movie to be full of CGI, though.

Zack Snyder reveals Jason Momoa as Aquaman for “Dawn of Justice/Justice League”…

Here is what former “Game of Thrones” star Jason Momoa looks like as Aquaman for the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “The Justice League” films.

I love it! Zack definitely knows what he’s doing. To be honest, Jason still looks like his “Game of Thrones” character, Khal Drogo but meaner and tougher!!!

Can’t wait for “Dawn of Justice”!!!!

Zack Snyder confirmed to direct “Justice League” film which is no surprise…

I had a feeling that Zack Snyder was going to get the opportunity to direct, “Justice League” film.

I know “Man of Steel” got mixed reviews but I thought “Man of Steel” was an excellent film. I never understood the mixed reviews of the first “Man of Steel”. I thought the film was well-done. It was realistic, heartfelt, action-packed, etc. Just like a Superman movie is supposed to be. I’m also looking forward to “Batman vs. Superman” too.

I know Zack’s casting choices are really weird but it’s just his way of keeping his Superman re-boot as original as possible. It’s just his way of trying to keep away from the Richard Donner/Christopher Reeve universe, know what I mean? He’s just trying to keep it different as possible.

Now that they got casting for the new Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). I wonder who they’re gonna get for the Flash and the Green Lantern? I’m sure they’ll find people for those two characters soon.

Thought: “Man of Steel” question, who is Jenny Olsen???

I know this blog has been a bit way too political as of late, but I think it’s time for a change and go back to discussing movies/music and other entertainment which was the original idea for this site to begin with.

A young actress by the name of Rebecca Bulller, is listed as Jenny Olsen in the “Man of Steel” IMDB page, and in the “Man of Steel” trailer, you see Laurence Fishburne as Perry White running with a young girl which appears to be, Rebecca, in the trailer. A lot of people are speculating that Jenny Olsen, could be a female version of Jimmy Olsen. Jimmy Olsen is not in “Man of Steel” at all, I believe.

The character Jenny Olsen, is not from the comics at all. It’s an original character for, “Man of Steel”.

I’m thinking that Jenny Olsen could be a possible relative of Jimmy Olsen. Maybe daughter or sister, or maybe even his wife, something like that. That way, they can introduce Jimmy for the “Man of Steel” sequel.

“Man of Steel” is full of secrecy, and all will be revealed when we see the actual film in June. The film has been rated PG-13. Some may mistakenly say that this is the first Superman PG-13 film but it isn’t ’cause the last Superman film, “Superman: Returns” was PG-13. All the Chris Reeve films were PG, I think. Superman can’t be an R rated film ever, in my opinion, ’cause this character was meant to be enjoyed for people of all ages.

In other Superman news, I also see that characters for the upcoming, “Justice League” film have been confirmed, and they are none other than Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash. I hope they do a good job with the “Justice League” film. That film will be difficult to make it good. I know they will try to top “The Avengers”, but it will be hard to do. They just need a good director and good script.

Looking forward to both “Man of Steel”, and “Justice League”.

Report: “Justice League” movie finally greenlighted for Summer of 2015 release…

Due to the big victory of Warner Bros. copyright case to Superman, Warner Bros. is not wasting any time on the, “Justice League” film, as they have just set a release date for, Summer of 2015. They hope to start shooting next year, so expect casting to start soon. Also, who should direct it and write it. Joss Whedon would be out since he’ll be busy filming, “Avengers 2”. There will be no Christopher Nolan or Zack Snyder. I’m not sure who to direct it, but as for who to cast as Superman, why not get Brandon Routh back? Good idea, isn’t it? This is a good chance for Brandon to reprise his role, if Henry Cavill is not down.

Anyway, this is going to be a very hard movie to make. Could it top, “The Avengers”? I don’t know. The story and directing needs to be spot on. “Justice League” needs to be more than just another typical popcorn action film. It needs to be a MOVIE!!! With great acting and a great story. Sure, I can definitely see, “Justice League” being an action packed ride, but the story needs to work.

More on it, here.

Well, I’m glad Superman got it’s rights back ’cause this could change everything with the Superman character in the comics, video games, cartoons and other forms of entertainment. I can see Superman finally getting his own action/adventure video game in the works soon. It’ll be cool to get a Superman video game that is similar to, “Batman Arkham Asylum/Arkham City”. Sure, Superman has appeared in other games such as “Mortal Kombat vs. DC Comics”, “DC Universe Online”, and “Injustice”, but everyone wants Superman to get his own game. I can see why the video gaming industry hasn’t made Superman his own game yet. They are waiting for the character to come out with a hit movie, and when “Man of Steel” comes out in theaters next year, that will be the time to release his own video game.

EDIT TO ADD: I think I just thought of a director for the “Justice League” film. How about none other than Bryan Singer?

Report: Warner Bros. wants Ben Affleck to direct, “Justice League” film…

Since Christopher Nolan is done with superhero films, Warner Bros. is eyeing “The Town” director, Ben Affleck, to helm, “The Justice League” film. WB’s didn’t ask Affleck yet, but they are planning on it. Affleck is known to giving himself an acting role to the movies he directs, so I’m sure he will play a character, in the “Justice League” film. Affleck would make a good Flash, or maybe Aqua Man. I hope he’ll be down for this ’cause this would be a huge opportunity for him and he could finally get recognized for his talent.

He has superhero movie experience. Remember now, he was in the “Daredevil” movie.

Variety reports.
