Sorry you can't handle other people's opinions. Having watched the extended director's cut, I believe the theatrical edits really harmed BvsS. The director's cut was much much more balanced. As for Snyder..... first and foremost he's a visualist. Not a writer. Restore the edits and recast Lex Luthor, and you have a fairly decent movie.

Zach's visuals are stunning. His 2 movies are better on the eyes than 90% of Marvel's visuals.

Zack's a subtle story-teller and his visuals have meaning to the story. Snyder's DC's contextual focus isn't singular and isn't placed in a vacuum, ala Marvel. I appreciate Zack's work every day and stand by the notion of having a thoughtful alternative that doesn't resort to a formulaic; forgetful films full of fluff. Too bad WB turned JL into a Marvel gag reel. It could and should have been much more when pertaining to Zack's vision. Ohwell.

Favorite of tweeter comments was his face after being munched in Superman V Batman. But it makes no sense since he was dead after that.

Hold up...holdupholdup..

Superman's face didn't get munch'd in. Batsy tried, but nah.

The only marking on Supes' face was the cut from the Kryptonite spear.


Carry on. :lol:

I use to do a little bit of photoshop. What that atrocity looks like is a tool called the "smudge" tool where you basically blend textures that looks like a smear, kind of like the Ring girl of some sort. I'm getting more and more jacked over JL and starting to wish it never fucking happened lol.

Yeah, the smudge tool also won a mention in the Twitter comments. :lol:

We can only hope WB learned from their gaffe.

I know Star Wars is really a Disney Marvel movie, but has anyone seen it? I saw it last night it was pretty good. Won't give any details because of spoilers, but one of the better. I've seen a lot of complaints online about what happened in the movie, but there's still another movie to go to explain things. So I think people are getting upset for nothing. The one drawback for me a lot of the humor seemed forced

Starting to heat up:

EXCLUSIVE: MARK MILLAR TALKS POTENTIAL MATTHEW VAUGHN DIRECTED MAN OF STEEL
"He and I are massive Superman fans. I mean, we worship Richard Donner. We love the Christopher Reeve movies. He actually phoned me up a few months ago, and he said, “Hey, listen, DC, they’re very interested in me doing Man of Steel 2. Do you want to come in and do this?’ And I was like, ‘I’m exclusive to Netflix for years. We can’t even have that conversation.’ And he was like, ‘Oh, man. What's the chances of this?’ And then he kind of drifted away. And he’s attached himself to a couple of things and all that. Y'know so, it’s one of those things that might, I mean- if somebody phones Matthew up and offers him enough money it could all change tomorrow," Millar shared with Robles.

INSIDER INTEL:

This #MatthewVaughn / #Superman stuff is very real. Between his comments, and what Mark Millar told me today (for tomorrow's @ElFanboyPodcast), @WBPictures is paying VERY close attention to YOUR responses.

It was entertaining. Time flew by while watching it. Didn't care with where they went with characters and how they are changing what the force is and what it can do.
The Leia scene and the BB8 scene taking out the guards were stupid

Matthew Vaughn:

"I do love the world of DC, and I've been talking to them at the moment about a few things. It's more fun getting involved with franchises when they're on the down, because then it's easier to make a good film. So if I got involved with a few of the superhero movies out there that have been disappointing, it's going to be... if I do OK, it'll probably be better."

If they do anything, they will do another team up movie. Maybe Cavill's Supes with Wonder Woman. They won't bet the farm on another MOS solo movie. Losing proposition.

Nope, Wonder Woman 2 is filming in '18. Already written, cast and crew are set up. There were rumors of a movie with Shazam/Superman/Black Adam, but with the Black Adam movie off the slate, that's probably not happening, either. Yet. Shazam! starts filming in February, too.

If Vaughn signs on for a Superman movie, it will be a Superman movie. Hopefully with Brainiac. Fandom demands a Superman movie.

The existence of Wonder Woman 2 doesn't prevent her being teamed up with Superman in the future. If the DC cinematic universe even goes forward (a BIG *if*) I imagine most of the films will involve her predominantly. DC added Batman into the mix because a solo Superman film did not connect with audiences. It would be a huge gamble for them to try that again.

The problem with ANY story is that plot doesn't matter as much as folks think. Yes, plot helps drive the story...in the background, and yes a hokey plot can ruin a movie, and to an equal extent: Casting. But interesting characters, DIALOGUE, and intelligent INTERACTIONS between those interesting characters are what determines a bad movie from a good movie, and a good movie from a great movie.

Dude gets a lifetime pass because of Firefly, and Serenity. Whedon and Apatow are the same. Allowed to run rampant because of past accomplishments.

Nah. Don't get what everyone sees in 'em. Fell asleep during Serenity, too! I gave 'im a fair shake. Avengers is a pretty cool movie, though there are issues with the third act (middle's the best). Age of Ultron turned a great villain into a joke. I hope Batgirl doesn't suck.

I should have written that answer better. I'm not saying he SHOULD get a pass, just that he gets it from his wacky fanbase, and hollywood.

The current state of the DC cinematic universe is still very much in doubt. Aquaman director, James Wan, has been openly distancing himself from creative choices in Justice League. Wonder Woman 2, like Suicide Squad 2, was inevitable because it made $$$. DC Films has completely restructured following Justice League. Matt Reeves seemingly wants nothing to do with Affleck. Originally proposed films like Cyborg, JL2, and MOS 2 will never see the light of day. The entire focus has shifted from a connected universe ala Marvel to standalone films. This has been documented all over.
