    We had a "DC taste answer to the MCU" before and now we're trying something else because that didn't go as planned. No big deal. *Shrugs*

    Come on now. Do you really need someone explaining the difference between "make money" and whatever Joker is doing?

    In case your job is with WB/DCEU: Thanks for the ride up till (I guess for now) Shazam!. Watched every movie day one when possible. Bought the Steelbook edition of all of them. Thanks for trying, don't give up. But also: no reason to discuss the pro/cons any further since your answers are company guided.

    In case you are not... No really. No ideas here. Maybe 'cause its late. We are going to sleep now...

    Neither hero, nor villain. Just straight most profitable comic book adaptation!

    JUSTICE LEAGUE - SNYDER CUT NEWS

    I haven't looked at the last couple pages, but for the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut fans, there is a renewed push happening not just from the fandom, but from people associated with the movie. If you don't care or have only negative thoughts regarding the Snyder Cut movement, you're free to voice your opinion, but I would like to follow the "disclaimer" that you can find below from the DC_Cinematic subreddit mods in their renewed push: just ignore this.

    Reddit post from the mods asking for a social media blast and to "trust them" on this: https://www.reddit.com/r/DC_Cinemati..._for_everyone/

    Ray Porter, who was cast as Darkseid is tweeting out directly to AT&T and WB.
    Ray Fisher and Zack Snyder apparently liked Momoa's Instagram post showing him skewering Steppenwolf. This sequence supposedly leads to Aquaman "serving up" Steppenwolf to Superman who then punches him over to Diana where she deals the final blow. This is different than the ending provided in the theatrical release.

    Jason Momoa, Jay Oliva, Ray Porter and many others have all been actively pushing the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut on Twitter, Vero and Instagram over the last 24 hours or so.
    Zack Snyder has served up some fresh pics from his version (a couple are shown above by Last Son of Krypton).

    No one is sure what's going on, but there is "hope" circulating that with the second anniversary of Justice League next week, an announcement may be imminent OR AT&T/WB may be feeling pressure both externally and internally to have Zack Snyder's original cut release on HBO Max to offer proper closure for his fans and to the "Justice League" trilogy.

    If you are a supporter and/or fan of the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement, it's encouraged that you get on whatever social media you have and begin contributing to the hashtag and tagging @AT&T and @WarnerBros to show them the support.


    Again, if you're not interested or you don't care, then please feel free to ignore all of this.

    EDIT: Almost forgot! Junkie XL confirmed he finished all of Justice League's soundtrack (this has been a heavily debated point of the Snyder Cut. Well, no more!). You can find that exclusive story here: https://screenrant.com/justice-leagu...core-complete/

    No it's not. What is the endgame?

    What does that movie teach the WB? Yet another movie not set in the depressed Batman universe made a billion like Aquaman. SO that's 4 movies (WW & Shazam) that have made it despite everything.

    Now the question is does it get the WB to lighten up finally? Or are they doing to panic that yet ANOTHER guy has done better than Batman & Superman to panic and screw up the next Batman film. Instead of accepting that Batman can't be number one all the time.

    Making a good movie that has been wildly successful and done better than all their shared universe films except Aquaman. I don't know why this is hard to grasp. They made a huge play for a Marvel style shared universe and then it blew up in their faces, so now they're going a different route.

    It's funny. Everyone was making fun of DC for copying Marvel with the early films, and now that they're pivoting course, people are complaining that DC isn't doing enough to copy Marvel.

    Yep. It's a monster success that even Marvel now has to envy. Shouldn't even be arguable, but apparently it is.

    Seriously? That's where you're gonna go with this?

    What Joker's financial success should do is showcase to WB/AT&T that DC is a money maker and they have a deep well to pull from. While we can argue Joker is the world's most recognized villain and that, say, a Lex Luthor movie in this style may not a billion-burger, the interest in these types of stories is there. Execution is critical, but that's where WB has to trust the director and teams they've chosen.

    Moving forward, I'd love to see a formal "Black" label film division very closely tied into the DCEU (not meaning in an inter-related way of film stories, but operationally). The formal DCEU can keep cranking out Aquaman, Wonder, Shazam! sequels along with the upcoming "Batman-verse" while Black does one off and elseworld movies ala Joker.

    Regardless, this movie will line the coffers for WB and the other production companies associated, meaning they'll be more willing to take chances like this in the future and maybe even with slightly higher budgets (up to, but not exceeding $100 million, for example).

    that, and it seems odd to describe a movie about the Joker going crazy in Gotham City and ending with the death of the Waynes as NOT being about Batman

    Yeah, I don't understand that myself. Despite its unconventional approach, it's definitely part of the Batman universe.

    What's behind your hatred of DC? They seemingly can't do anything right in your eyes.
