6 Thoughts on Zack Snyder’s Justice League

We are finally living in a post-Snyder Cut world. Zack Snyder’s Justice League has arrived on HBO and we have all experienced it. I sat down with a buddy of mine and marathoned all four hours in one sitting, because that’s how I roll. I saw it just because it’s a thing to see. I am no #releasetheSnyderCut guy. I think Man of Steel is terrible, and I have grown to dislike Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice more and more. So don’t read this expecting some fawning praise for Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Movie Rating: 7/10 – Good.

I enjoyed the theatrical cut of Justice League well enough, at least upon seeing it in theaters. I haven’t had any interest in that film since. And I have had no desire to see Zack Snyder get another crack at it. I don’t think he’s a good fit for DC superhero movies. I’m not a hater. I very much adore 300 and Watchmen. I just haven’t enjoyed his take on Superman and the gang. And I never cared for the bullies that kicked off the #releasetheSnyderCut movement. I view this actual Snyder Cut as Warner Bros. grasping at straws to have some kind of draw to HBO Max.

But I watched Zack Snyder’s Justice League. I enjoyed it. It’s fine. And now I’m glad it’s behind me. Join me after the jump for my thoughts on the beast of a film. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Comes Out With a Better Trailer Just in Time!

Zack Snyder’s Justice League arrives on HBO Max on Thursday, possibly changing all of time and space in ways we cannot imagine. Will the world ever be the same again? Will Hollywood? Will this movie mark the true end of the pandemic, in place of the vaccine? I guess we’re about to find out!

Behold a new trailer!

What really strikes me is how heavily this trailer features Darkseid. Because we all know that, of the reshoots Zack Snyder was able to do, there’s no way he filmed an entirely new fight scene where any of the Justice League take on Darkseid. We all know that this movie will still just be the Justice League fighting Steppenwolf, possibly the worst decision in superhero movies in the past decade.

But hey, we’ll find out on Thursday. I’m gonna watch this at some point.

6 Things I Want to See in a New Superman Movie

Word has it that there’s a new Superman movie coming from J.J. Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates. Word also has it that it’ll star a Black Superman. All of that sounds fine by me. I didn’t care for Man of Steel and I’m more than ready to move on to a new Superman movie. Once again, Warner Bros., DC and Hollywood will have a chance to make a modern Superman movie. I wish them all the luck in the world.

I am ready for alternate Supermen

So what would I like to see in a new, modern Superman movie? I have opinions. Of course I do! The movie starring a Black Superman already fulfills one of them. But considering all I know about the world of Superman, surely I have some other thoughts. Villains. Status quos. Other characters? All that good stuff! So let’s have it! Join me after the jump for things I’d like from a new Superman movie.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Continues to Look Worse and Worse

All opinions are my own. Zack Snyder’s version of the Justice League movie — now a 4-hour movie — is only a month or so away and it looks terrible. The first full, official trailer was released on Valentine’s Day and it’s…oh jeez. It’s a beast of a monstrosity.

This isn’t satire. This isn’t parody. This is real. This is…jeez, what is this? Slow, melodramatic, so full of itself…at least he didn’t re-use Hallelujah again! This thing looks like madness, and every trailer is worse than the last. I’m a huge fan of movie trailers, but this looks so unappealing.

I’m probably still gonna watch it! Zack Snyder’s Justice League comes to HBO Max on March 13!

DC Comics is Gonna Do a Cool Flash Forward Event Next Year!

Once upon a time, there existed a plan at DC Comics to make a big shift in their comic book status quo. It was going to be called 5G and it was going to jump the universe forward about five years, so that the younger heroes would step up and be the new lead heroes, while the main guys would step back. Or maybe none of this was going to happen and Bleeding Cool was just pulling rumors out of its butt. Hard to say.

Well DC has announced that they’re going to do a small future event in January and February in which all DC comics will jump forward about 5 years to show off some ne looks, new status quos, new heroes and new adventures. It’s gonna be called Future State.

Look at all the everybody!

And I think it looks cool! I’m all in favor of fun little stunts like this, like the Age of Apocalypse for the X-Men back in the 90s. Marvel got so much mileage out of that story.

So yeah, all our families heroes are going to get new status quos and new adventures. Superman is going to be exiled from Earth, so he’s gonna fight space bad guys. Bruce Wayne is…believed dead? I think? And there are a couple of new Batmen. Gotham City is going to be under a police state.

Tim Drake is going to be Robin in his own little adventure Robin Eternal.

No cape? Interesting choice!

There are a lot of little comics here and there. Justice League, Teen Titans, Harley Quinn, Suicide Squad; there appears to be something for everyone! Batgirls, Grifters.

Here are a ton more details at this link. Tons of comics, tons of covers, tons of story details. Click away and enjoy the madness that is to come!

I’m just pleased that Tim Drake is Robin in the future still!

The event is only going to last for January and February and then go back to regular comics for March. Sounds fine to me!
