    AFAIK, his next project is a Netflix zombie show.

    Have you heard of anything else attached to his name as director?

    Millions of people watch Netflix. Being on Netflix is not some sort of demotion...

    In terms of amount of pay vs hours of product, it certainly is.

    Army of the Dead is a movie. Also The Fountainhead. If that ever actually gets made. And now Justice League.

    I was responding to the statement that his "re-emerging to work in cinema" was "unlikely". He's working in cinema. Being on Netflix doesn't make it not a movie.

    Being on Netflix makes it small screen, which is the distinction between movie and cinema. Fountainhead was last talked about before he was fired from Justice League, and the failure of Atlas Shrugged I think has pretty much killed any opportunity for The Fountainhead.

So I mean instead of seeing a Whedon/Snyder jumbled mess, we'll just see the full Snyder mess.

    WB is throwing so much money into this it's a shame. I wish they'd put that 20-30mil somewhere else, like Shazam! 2 or Titans season 3 (It's a good show just needs a bigger budget) or even Better yet Doom Patrol.
    Why can't they do both?

    Sure it matters, he inherited Snyder's legacy with B vs S which would bring down any movie Snyder was involved with. If WB had done what you wanted the entire movie would have been scrapped. They had to fix the movie because Snyder didn't leave them a completed movie before he had to leave. They panicked because Snyder's vision hurt the DCEU, they don't owe him everything he serves at their pleasure. He's not George Lucas, he's not even Chris Nolan. They were in a bad place since Snyder had to leave due to his daughter dying, he was in no shape to direct after that on top of the reception of his other films. Snyder staying on was not only be and for his mental state it would compromise his directing.

    If you really want to get into this semantic argument again I’m sure someone is willing, but I’m not the guy.

    He’s making movies. Where they get released doesn’t change that he is, in fact, professionally making movies. So the statement that his showing up to make movies again being “unlikely” was completely incorrect. That was all I was saying.

    I don’t know why anyone questioned my comment. He is making movies. Think of him or his output what you will, doesn’t change that he is currently making two movies.

    I'm just trying to keep the goal posts in the same place. The original comment was that he is emerging to do cinema, which is untrue. I would not argue that it's about movies. And he's only doing one project, afaik

    He’s literally working on two movies right now.

    Again, semantic argument. If we're going there, I'd argue that basically nothing Snyder has made should be considered "Cinema" no matter where it was released. But I'm not making that argument.

    He makes movies. He's still making movies. Shrug.

    So, it's better to go with a failure that everybody hates than even try to save it?

    Yes considering their attempts to save it made everything worse.

    I'm going to have to disagree with you.

    They took a chance that they could change it and make it better. Honestly I think it did make it better, but even the chance of it being good is better than the certainty of it being bad.

    Give Bruce Wayne's 1% speech in BvS, I'm sure Snyder would agree.

    I'm not sure of what you're saying?
