I don’t care about the Snyder Cut of the Justice League movie. I can remember mildly enjoying all of Zack Snyder’s DC Comics movies in the theaters, but time has curdled that opinion and I don’t care for Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice or Justice League. So if we’re drawing lines in the sand, I am definitely not one of those fanboys who was desperate for Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of Justice League.
I thought the whole idea was as much a joke as this Honest Trailers video on the subject.
But earlier this week, Warner Bros. has announced that they will release the massive, 4-hour Snyder’s Cut of Justice League next year to attract viewers to their upcoming HBO Now streaming service. Gotta have something to offer people to get them to subscribe to yet another streaming service; and someone thought pandering to the fanboys was the right choice.
We’ll see. I’ll probably watch the Snyder Cut some how when it’s out, but I’m fairly certain it’s going to be as bad as the rest of Snyder’s DC output. Such is life.
A Justice League Dark TV show was recently announced for the upcoming HBO streaming service. Will it actually happen? I don’t know. DC has announced several dozens potential TV shows and movies in development over the years, and how many actually come to fruition? On the other hand, we do have live action Krypton and Black Lightning TV shows, and the Aquaman movie was a huge hit, so I guess anything is possible!
Some kind of live action Justice League Dark TV show or movie has been in the works since at least 2012, when it was rumored that Guillermo del Toro was working on it. The project has passed through various iterations until this past week, when it was announced that J.J. Abrams was working on the new HBO show. He’s got a pretty solid reputation, right? So maybe it will happen!
That begs the question: Who will appear? Obviously the major players like Zatanna, Constantine and Swamp Thing will likely show up, but who will round out the cast? I have some ideas! Join me after the jump!
Westworld season 3 comes out on March 15, so we’re only a few weeks away! It’s a fun show. I enjoy it. But more so than the actual show, I really like this instrumental cover of “Sweet Child O’Mine” they added to this trailer.
That song is banging! I’ve watched the official music video as well, but it’s not as good. It’s really just the perfect combination of trailer and song.
The show’s song master, Ramin Djawadi made the cover of the Guns N’Roses classic and I’d say he earned his paycheck that day!
Let’s hope the new season is even half as exciting as that song/trailer combo.
Joker was not good. That’s not fair. It’s probably a really well made, well acted film and a lot of people will think it’s good. But it’s not for me, it’s not my kind of movie. It’s dark, ugly and severely misanthropic. No thanks.
So how about we look forward to other movies and TV shows?! New York Comic-Con is in full effect and a whole bunch of new trailers are coming out!
Like HBO’s His Dark Materials show. I never read the books and barely remember The Golden Compass movie from a few years ago, so this trailer looks really bonkers to me! Hopefully good bonkers.
Then we’ve got this new war movie, 1917, coming out before the end of the year. This one looks to be pretty darn fantastic.
There’s no trailer yet for Ryan Reynolds’ new movie, Free Guy, about a random bank employee who realizes he’s an NPC in a video game. But there’s this funny ‘meet the cast’ video. Reynolds and Taika Waititi are hilarious together!
It’s nice that they finally get to work together.
A Watchmen TV show is coming to HBO. It’s not going to be an adaptation of the legendary graphic novel. Instead, it’s going to be…some kind of continuation? I’m still not really sure, but I’ll probably get around to watching it. I hope it’s good! Even though I don’t have much faith, in spirit, in any Watchmen spin-off.
Today’s a pretty big day! My vacation is over and I’m back to work. But more importantly, the new expansion to Red Dead Online comes out today! I can’t wait to get home and finally play some new content!
Maybe I should have called in sick today…
